The Hessian of the Hollow - Art Post


When I thought about my claim this year, I wanted something that as a gen case-fic or something in the vein of the first few seasons. No myth arc or angels. I found exactly what I was looking for in [livejournal.com profile] jedisapphire’s spooky tale, The Hessian of the Hollow. The art below isn’t spoilery for the fic, but do read the story if you love classic Supernatural.

Thanks as always to [livejournal.com profile] wendy for herding this mess, and to [livejournal.com profile] uisgich for being a sounding board and cheerleader.

Title graphics - I knew right away after reading the story that I wanted to put the title on a tombstone. Colonial tombstones were amazing, check the links below.



Main Illustration - the iconic scene where Dean and Sam encounter the Hessian.

Quick sketch - my preferred method of reading my claimed Big Bang story is on my iPad with a sketch app open so I can capture my first impressions as I read. This was what later became the main picture.
