Reminisce  
Editing a few photos in order to get them signed at Asylum Convention, I found myself unable to stop after the needed couple of pics and ended up with a season one episode stills picspam of sorts. It's a rather random compilation wherein Sam's still wearing his emo mop of doom and Dean's still caught in the crossfire of being a big brother and perfect little soldier.

Speaking of being caught between two stools, there's this, raw, haunting and beautifully written IMTOD AU fic called My Smile's An Open Wound Without You by ephemerall that's so worth the read. Skillfully sketched characters and it's almost juggling with destiny a bit because regardless the different turn all events take, the outcome's still the same. Go Read. Now.



  1. That crease between his brows is killing me.


  2. The lighting in that scene is just so effective. Immersing their eyes and faces in shadows.




  3. flare gun porn \o/












  4. ♥ Really, you can't blame Dean for getting all soft. No one could resist those eyes.



  5. It's amazing how much more sense the ending of Home makes now that it's clear John probably knew about Sam's destiny then already.





  6. *guh* The way he holds that machete makes me want to take all shot guns away and exchange them with swords and knives.


  7. You gotta admit, that scene was damn brilliantly performed and it's a perfect mirror of the roles they all play(ed) in the family. There's this urge to hug each one of them for the most different reasons here.






[original pictures from sn media and manip_res] I just used the scalpel and added some colors. Big thanks to justfreefallin for teaching me how to do those nifty frames *squishes*

Will be working on some icons tomorrow :)

what pic will you use to get signed??

OhH, looking forward to some icons from you!!

Oh if only I could decide, there are so many pretty ones of Dean *is conflicted* Will need to sleep another night over this one but then I really need to get them developed at the store O.o

Well, at least I'm fairly sure when it comes to Alona, where I'll be taking pics from ELaC

Guh, they're just too much pretty, it's overloading my senses. I LOVE #9 (woah, the lighting and darkness is pretty awesome), #23 (I agree, the machete is HOT!!) and #25 (oh man, that smile just gets me). And YEAH! You're making icons!! Looking forward to seeing those XD
ヴェレーナ: sam wetongiara on April 25th, 2007 10:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, those episode stills are very nicely done most of the time and I might even prefer them over actual promotional photo shoots :)

oh man, that smile just gets me
It radiates so much joy, isn't it? Kind of makes me happy just to watch him smile.

And thanks, it's been slow going with icons lately and I'm fairly sure it'll be some time until I have enough to compile a batch. *wishes she had more speedy skills like you with that*

Wow, those pictures are gorgeous, I love what you did with the colors.
I cannot for the life of me decide which photo(s) I want to get signed, am at a total loss. You mind sharing yours, for insiration and such?
ヴェレーナ: dean scarecrow faceongiara on April 25th, 2007 10:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks *beams* And I'm stil undecided about the ONE from Jensen but since I'm less an actors type but feel more connected to the characters, I'll be taking one of Dean for him to sign. At least I narrowed it down with Alone where I'll be either/and/or taking #s 8, 12 or 17 from ELaC :)

*pets the puppy* *gg*

It's amazing how much more sense the ending of Home makes now that it's clear John probably knew about Sam's destiny then already.
*nods* You're right about this. I rewatched the episode two weeks ago and when the John-Scene came up I was all "OMG, now I know why he's looking like this! *flail*"
Of course I couldn't say anything about it, because my friend (who I just got addicted to Sam Supernatural) doesn't know about Season 2 - yet. We'll get there. *hehe*

*guh* The way he holds that machete makes me want to take all shot guns away and exchange them with swords and knives.
I'm afraid he might cut himself one day... *lol*

There's this urge to hug each one of them for the most different reasons here.
I could totally hug all Winchester men like all the time. I don't need no reasons. :P

*draws BIG hearts around pic #25* &hearts

Thanks for the picspam of awesomeness! *flails*

And here's me thinking that maybe they hadn't even meant for all of this to close the circle and make it bear the meaning it eventually acquired, but it's one of those moments where you cherish the writers and the actors of that show so very much *group hug*

my friend (who I just got addicted to Sam Supernatural
You go girl, especially when you grow some more Sam girls *flails*

BTW, 15 days to Asylum and meeting up and just having a great time! *hüpf*

I'm afraid he might cut himself one day
Oh noes... but then there would be some schmoopy h/c to follow when Sam's stitiching him up, hee.

*squishes*

Thanks! I had the sweetest time going through all the episode stills, ways to make a fangirl happy :)

Hehe, I knew I could count on you having devoured that one already ;)
Mia: sam deanmyeien on April 25th, 2007 09:38 pm (UTC)
Amazing coloring, as usual! These are gorgeous! :)

Which one(s) are you going to use? I specially like 17 and 25 (why, yes, I'm biased :D :D )

It's amazing how much more sense the ending of Home makes now that it's clear John probably knew about Sam's destiny then already.
So true, watching John is now painful, not only because we know he sacrifies himself, but also cause we know he had to carry that weight for some time and didn't know how to help Sam, or Dean.

*beams* Thanks!

I specially like 17 and 25 (why, yes, I'm biased)
LOL I'm right there with ya all the way. Also, one can never be too biased when it comes to Sam or Jared!

Am still deciding on pics for Jensen and Nicky to sign but am fairly sure they'll be from season two episode stills. I'm a character whore, what can I do? At least I chose some from Alona already, namely those stills from ELaC where she actually looks like she kicks major Dean demon ass, hee.

cause we know he had to carry that weight for some time and didn't know how to help Sam, or Dean
Exactly. And whether they intended that sense initially, it's one of those moments where I'm eternally gratefull our show has writers and actors like JDM ♥

Oh the spam is big with the pretty, I love what you have done to the photos and #4 just takes my breath away.

Thanks! It certainly helps that those stills are all in Hi-Res :)

#4 just takes my breath away
Hehe, he looks so focused on studying his text, it's almost mesmerising to watch.
Lissieilovesn on April 25th, 2007 09:48 pm (UTC)
what pictures are you going to get signed?

i have two for everyone that's going :D


great stuff :D
ヴェレーナ: sd bw routeongiara on April 25th, 2007 11:11 pm (UTC)
Am still undecided and conflicted *le sigh* Well, I got 3 narrowed down for Alona. Will hopefully chose one for Jensen and Nicki tomorrow so I can take them to the store on time.

Which ones are you going to let them sign?

*hugs*

LOL They've sure come a long way until the end of season two - characterwise and visually too. Makes you wonder how they'll look like after season 4 :)
cetpar on April 25th, 2007 10:13 pm (UTC)
Noooooooo! How could you post these when I'm supposed to be *studying*? Now I want to stare at them forever! *g*

Seriously, you chose an amazing set of pictures of the guys. I could look at *each* of these forever. Together? Wow. Bookmarked so I can come back when I have the time to ogle them some more.
ヴェレーナ: sam laughingongiara on April 25th, 2007 11:17 pm (UTC)
Sorry, I guess ^_^ Hope you got some more studying done anyway and good luck in case there's a test coming up!

Hee, thank you. I must have absorbed the whole of sn media by now, oh but they are so darn pretty *sigh*

ヴェレーナ: sam profilongiara on April 29th, 2007 04:46 pm (UTC)
Hehe, definitely, they both have irresistible straits ♥

Thanks, and I finally narrowed it down to about 3 to 4 pics of each guest and sent them into print. Hopefully, they'll be done on time.

2. TOTAL AGREEMENT!
4. And I love the use of glowing light around Sammich there.
5. They look so young and innocent.
13. I love their profiles and expressions here.
25. OMG, lookit that smile.. light up the fricken world! :D
27. Poor Dean, always caught in the middle (but look at that beautiful face!).

Will be working on some icons tomorrow :)

YAY! I can't make icons for beans lately.

They really do. It's amazing how much they changed in those two years alone O.O for the better I'd say though :) Okay, maybe except for Sam's hair LOL sorry, just can't let that one go.

I can't make icons for beans lately.
Apparently, I can't either. But I'm not giving up...

I so love your cropping in these pictures! ♥
That's all I can say now, because all the pretty is killing me.
Have a sunny day, and I'm so looking forward to icons!!! :D

ヴェレーナ: dean hunted textureongiara on April 29th, 2007 05:29 pm (UTC)

And I haven't even started working on icons, meh. Need to do some stuff for uni tomorrow, so they have to wait another day^^

I'm back. I love this picture post. When I first saw it, I was too busy oggling to realize you had touched up the screencaps. They look really good.

Question, though. I'm messing with my LJ layouts and am attempting my own headers. May I use picture #1 to try and make a header? I love the cap and what you did with the coloring. If you would prefer not, I completely understand.

ヴェレーナ: Impalaongiara on June 2nd, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
Haha, I'm somewhat amused that you should mention a header since I'm in the process of revamping my layout too and am currently headerless LOL
And sure, feel free to grab the pic and use it for your graphics :D
