7 Days of Self-Promotion - Day 5  
The Days:
1. Something old
2. Something new - talk about a new fanwork of yours
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a large fandom/pairing/character
6. Something for a small fandom/pairing/character
7. Something you're just really proud of

Heee, for anyone who knows me it won't be a surprise when I say that the Pairing part is gonna be slashy. Enter at your own risk :P

5. Something for a large fandom/pairing/character

Even though I've been known to venture into two other fandoms which are most certainly larger than White Collar, however, I still see White Collar as not only my main but also my only fandom. Thus, today I'm gonna go with character and pairing :D

No surprise that almost everything that I create is about either Neal or Peter. I think the one thing that I'm very fond of and love creating are wing manips. I've put wings on both Peter and Neal on various ocassions. It all started with a manip that became an illustration for elrhiarhodan's The Place Where Wings Unfurl...

...and continued through various experiments with both wings AND feathers such as this random piece, the Paradise Lost trilogy (Fallen Angel, Hitch-Hiker and Pearly Gates - although I have posted them more as Matt and Tim art, in my head it all sparkles ideas and provides visuals for Peter and Neal stories anyway) and the very recent artwork for the Reverse Big Bang
I also seem to have a thing for putting Neal and Peter in haunted houses (or near them... and for now it's 2:1 for Neal :P ). I posted Haunted and Haunted II a while back but it all started with this one:

I guess it's Peter's turn this Halloween :D

My OT3 is of course Peter/Elizabeth/Neal and my OTP is Peter/Neal but I also love what canon gives us: Peter/Elizabeth and Neal/Sara :D But I admit that I've been most productive when it comes to Peter/Neal. I created a whole series of various Peter/Neal manips (I have a special folder for them). Each piece became part of my artwork for various fanfics but I also kept the original versions in case I needed to use them for something else. I think my favorite Peter/Neal manip is this one:

The only OT3 manip I created became a cover for elrhiarhodan's Paladin 'Verse. I really hope I can find more pics that go together so neatly :)

For Peter/Elizabeth I tend to do wallpapers or just random things. Out of the few that I've done so far I think this one is my favorite...
...but I am also very proud of the Ice Breaker poster which I made after the episode Ice Breaker.

These are all beautiful. I fell in love with the Paradise Lost Trilogy the first time I saw them, they inspired one of my stories.

Looking forward to see what you do in the future – your talent is endless.

Thank you :D That winged series came so unexpectedly. All thanks to that gorgeous photoshoot ♥ I already have something new in mind. But first things first - Big Bang, ahoy! :D

So much beautiful work! I really love those shadow wings on Neal--fallen angel indeed.
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 23rd, 2014 06:22 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you :D

Funny thing is, that manip started as something completely different, my initial idea was a) daylight, b) just a wall behind Neal, c) the wings as sort of burn marks on the wall...

so it ended up nighttime, with city lights and shadows... figures :D :D :D But once it was done, it immediately made me think of Elr's Wingfolk :D

I truly believe in a few years there will be a software that will allow you to lift footage and essentially create your own episodes. Until that wonderful day, we have you and all these lovely, provocatively dreamy images.

Heee, hmmm, yeah, you gotta survive somehow until the good days come :D

Being the recipient of so much of your art and talent humbles me.

Again, a thousand times, thank you so very much.

You are my endless source of inspiration, it just happens and I embrace it :D
