2011 Nuke Big Bang Art: "Stones Keep Rolling"  
Hey guys! Here is my first art post for this year's nukebigbang! These two pieces were inspired by pirl's beautiful story, Stones Keep Rolling. I had SO much fun working with her on this, and she can be thanked for the awesome songs included in the fanmix-I just provided the cover art! Thanks so much for viewing, and I hope you enjoy! :)

So fucking gorgeous!!! The blends, the textures, the colors! I haven't read the fic yet but I love love love love the two main pics you chose! That pic of Jake with his back turned is one of my faves! And did you extend the tattoo? I need to look at the original again. BUT OMG AGAIN, SO. FUCKING. GORGEOUS. DKFJAHSKDJLFAHSDKLJFAS!!

Awww, thank you, Moey!! This means SO much coming from you. And pirl described his tattoo as a lotus flower, and gave me a picture to work with--it was hard to blend it in, but hopefully it worked! THANKS AGAIN! <33333

Nicole, I never have words for your graphics. Still don't. Just wow. And yeah, I'm trying to figure out if Jake's tattoo is extended or not. lol It's beautiful though and fits with the story (for the little bit I've read so far & I'm sure for all of it). ♥

Ronnie, you are too sweet and amazing, and I love you! Thank you SO much for always leaving such genuine, wonderful comments, that I totally don't deserve.

And as for the tattoo, pirl had described it in the story as a lotus flower, and gave me a picture to work with!

Thanks again, sweetie! <3333

hiiiiiii! I missed you this year ;) But this is beautiful and more than makes up for it, so I forgive fate for not pairing us up this year. This is GORGEOUS, for realsies. I love the pics chosen, especially the ones in the photo-strip since they go so well with the story, and I love how the bigger pics of the guys are facing away from each other, looking down, kinda sad in context. And MAN the colors on the wallpaper are beautiful. I always love your art! Stop being so good at it!

Missed you this year, too, but thank you so much for your sweet comments! I'm always really worried I go a little overboard with the textures/colors, but glad it worked here! And that the photos I chose gave off the intended effect, as well. THANKS AGAIN! <33333

Also, kinda random, but as as not to spam your inbox, I'm going to respond to your comments from last night here, and say that YES, NYC at the end of October is a go! We have a couple more things to square away, but then we want to write to you and Jackie so we can start planning. CAN'T WAIT!

And YAAAAAAY! You seriously have no idea how excited we got when we read this, re: our prompt. :DDDDD We are here if you need anything else, and also--the DVD comes out on Oct 18th. Not that we have it marked on our calendar, or anything. ;P LOVELOVELOVE YOU!

Oh, hi new wallpaper!

This is so gorgeous, Nicole! I always have one of your artworks as a background and only change it when you post new ones. This is stunning and I love how perfect your picture choices were with the story.

And the two stand out pictures of Van and Jake? GUH. Love how you did that. It's just all so gorgeous and even as a stand-alone piece it's stunning.

Oh wow, Tasha, you're too sweet! I was really hoping the photos I chose would work to tell the story, and I'm so glad they did. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! <3333

Gosh, you really are so amazing at this. I've always loved your work so much and it always is such a treat every time we get more of it!

The colors in the wallpaper alone are just stunning. I love the way you blend, they are soft and yet so vibrant. And the pictures you chose! And I lovelovelove the photo-strip.

Seriously, everything is jut beautiful!

And yaaaay fanmixes! Hee, I love getting to see the music people pick! It's so much fun.

Lovely and amazing work! Like always. ♥

Steph, thank you so much for these sweet comments! As I've been telling others, I always struggle with how much color/texture is TOO much, but I'm really glad I didn't go overboard here. And that the pictures I chose worked well with the story, too. THANKS AGAIN!! <3333
