This is the artwork for the Smallville Big Bang, which started last week and is going on for a month. My fic contribution is coming out in a couple of weeks.Title:

depression, attempted suicide, and miscarriage, mentions of torture, non-con, and mpreg.Author’s Notes/Warning/Disclaimer/ Spoilers:
I do not own Smallville nor do I make a profit off of it. Smallville belongs to Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.Summary:
Lex heard the faint but distinct clink of ice against glass and he frowned. “You’re drunk.”
A breathy chuckle sounded from the other line, and the business mogul heard Superman swallow whatever was in the glass. “I am.”
“You can’t get drunk.” After two years of constant observation -- what some would call stalking -- Lex had been sure that getting drunk was impossible for the invulnerable alien.
“Given the right ingredients, I can.”Link to Story: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1014775( story art under the cut )
This story was a very lovely one to work with as an artist, with imagery straight out of the title and then pulling in the elements from the story that the author gave me to read. I drafted a few different original art concepts for thomp284, and we went over them and then chose one base to go with. From there, we kept flipping through different character screen caps until we found ones that really resonated with the author for expression and mode of the characters and that I could work with on the piece and the balance. Cleaning it up for the fine detail and selecting fonts for the title were the last, not insignificant parts.
I really enjoyed working on it, and am very happy with the results, though it took a lot longer than I expected and ended up having to give up my second Big Bang artwork in favor of finishing my own story (lol, the hazards of doing both). But I hear the second author is happy with her art too, so all's well with that! And I've finished my own story now! Yay! Off to beta and it'll be polished by publishing time. ^^
Go read the story and leave comments for the author - first Smallville story! ^___^ Hopefully not the last by far.
