My xmas gift to my sister, celebrating her survival via incredible people of the Supernatural fandom, and the show's amazing cast!

For those of you who don't know the characters, bottom left is Dean Winchester, bottom right is childhood Sam Winchester, top embracing are Dean and Sam as adults post an epic unwanted separation, and notable survival of the harshest ordeals, and then of course, the bottom my sister (Sashi) and I cuddling on the couch watching Supernatural (or maybe it was Dexter, Trueblood or something to that bitter goodness)

edit: I know its a bit grainy, but that is simply due to a camera not being able to take in that kind of detail, and having no access to a large scanner bed....this will be remedied in the semi-near future!

I do not own the characters of Supernatural, all characters of Supernatural belong to Erik Kripke and Warner Bros. (however, Warner Bros. and Erik Kripke cannot own rights to my sister and I :P )

This piece of fan art deserves attention and open admiration!
You've done an incredible job with it. As far as criterion goes for a critique, here's my opinion...

Vision – Does the artwork present or reflect a point of view, theme or idea? I think it absolutely does. I love the idea that it commemorates the special time you spend with your sister enjoying shows together. This so clearly shows your relationship reflected in the Winchester's relationship that you so eloquently captured here. Very creative.

Originality – I've seen some similar 'compilation' drawings before, but I love that you wound each together so well with the fireworks, the tattoo symbol and the light 'rings'. You brilliantly tied it all together and managed to keep it all well defined at the same time.

Technique – Your shading is lovely and the way you captured the light of the fireworks and the background is incredible. The hugging Winchesters are flawless. The rendering of the younger Sam face seems slightly off just around his left eye, but then the lighting in the original reference may have been a bit odd as well. I'm not sure which one you are, but the girl in front is brilliantly proportioned and shaded. Her hair is rendered perfectly and the detail is notable. The shading on the arm and hand of the person in the back is slightly 'choppy' (for lack of a more appropriate word) but otherwise this person is also very well done. All around - incredible work!

Impact – This piece has a strong impact, I think. I'm so impressed with the idea of comparing your relationship with your sister to that of these two characters who would (and have!!!) died for each other. You clearly put a lot of thought and time into this piece of art. Very well done!!!

This is so wonderful! You are very talented! It's also nice to see sisters who love each other and to see the Winchesters happy. Since my best friend is my sister, I have a fondness for siblings who get along. Stay strong Supernatural sisters!
