We-e-ell, I've been meaning to do this one a while, I had an old sketch in the scraps way back when that I didn't like, and I still feel like I haven't done this justice. I shouldn't have drawn and colored it last minute. Maybe I'll redo it yet.

Anyways, this months MGC is fanfic illustration, and for a long time I've wanted to do some illustrations for To Drive the Cold Winter Away written by two of the most awesome and Owen-loving Gargfic authors out there, Melissa 'Missy' Merlin and Tara 'LJC' O'Shea. Both of them have written a lot of amazing fics, but this collaboration is just amazing. Go read it! Now!

The fanfic deserves a better illustration than this, really, so maybe when I get the chance I'll try to do it over.

Gargoyles is copyright Buena Vista etc...

I had no idea you'd done this. This is absolutely lovely, thank you so much!

*Blushes* I had a really hard time picking between this, and him swaying after flinging the wine glass into the fire. I still feel like I want to do another version or something, I'm not quite happy with this one and I can't put my finger on why.

Hey, I've read that fanfic! 'Tis amazing. :nod: This picture is great! I can totally see the scene from the fanfic. :D :thumbsup: Love the background.

*sigh* Poor Owen... :( Is it silly of me to still have hope he'll win in the end, many centuries from now?

Good! It's one of my favorites. I'm still not quite satisfied with this, I'm beginning to think I should have done some kind of montage, so I can have a picture of him smashing the glass in the fireplace at the end, too.

Gargoyles 2198 has him stuck as mortal with Alex abducted, but... whose to say how his perspective might have changed by then.

That would be cool to see.

Sooner or later. I always seem to have this ongoing list of art projects to do, but one of these days I'll give it another try.

Oh, I know how that goes. I'm sure whenever you get the chance to draw it, it will look great.
