Avengers RBB - Catch a Falling Knife  
This is my first time participating in the avengers_rbb (thanks sirona_gs for organising it!) I had the great opportunity to work with geckoholic, Pleae check out her AO3 page for the awesome fic she's written Catch A Falling Knife. Give her lots of kudos and love, she was wondeful to work with and wrote a brilliant Bucky focused story \o/!

Thanks also to the wonderful
petite_madame for the beta on the artwork - this is the first colour comic page I had drawn like this, so the beta was very helpful <3

Story summary:
He can't avert his eyes, suddenly. The back of his head prickles with something that wants to be familiarity, recognition, but all it does is confuse him. He doesn't understand. He squints to read the name under the photo on the tiny screen. Steve Rogers.

Please find the artwork below the cut, it has some minor spoilers, but hopefully it will just make you want to go read the fic :D

Did I properly gush about your art yet? BECAUSE IT'S AMAZING. I love the way you work with light and shadows, and your Bucky is just pretty damn perfect. ALSO. I shall let the world know that you're an absolute joy to work with and that I enjoyed this collab very much. ♥

Thank you so much! Petite-madame helped me with the shadows and details, which was invaluable. I loved this collab as well :D I wasn't even sure about participating in this challenge, but I'm really glad I did!

Ahhhhhhh this was yours! It stood out among the rest, I have to say - the colours are fantastic. Dark and gritty but so so pretty!

And (mutter mutter) yet another fic I will have to get round to reading...argh!

Thank you :) It's a great fic though and it doesn't take long to read, though I understand, I have been bookmarking fics like crazy!

Oooh, faboo, Becc! I love the gritty inking. PERFECT for this theme!
becc_jbecc_j on September 4th, 2014 10:31 am (UTC)
Thanks very much :D This was my first go at inking like this even before that Dean one - bad moon on the rise. It's nice to finally post it. :)

It was a pleasure to beta this piece! First, I love to beta (my dad always tells me "P-m, shut up", so it's great when I have the occasion to open my big mouth and give my opinion, ha! Ha! ^o^) and second, it gives me the opportunity to see your work before everybody xD

I love how you draw Bucky (here and on your "Till End of The Line" comic), he looks tortured, rough, a bit dirty, with a beard (and of course, you got the likeness right) ^^ It's a side of the character I enjoy a lot ^^

You did a fantastic job on the ink work: it's done in PS but it really looks like it's drawn with real ink and a brush (you know, like the one you bought at the Daiso).

I'm also really fond of the colors, particularly the blue highlights on Bucky's shoulder in the first panel.

Congrats on posting your RBB ♥

haha, he is so fun to draw like this, so much the opposite of Steve in appearance, they're like night and day. I hope he keeps that look in the next film.

Thanks so much for the lovely comment about the inks and colours <3 It was fun to find that I could do the inks, I've tried before but I just got stuck not knowing what to do - where to put the blacks. I think not really caring about making it 'correct' was helpful, I just drew it. Also your points about adding some extra details here and there really helped to finish it off.

Thanks again <3

These are absolutely gorgeous! I love the choice of coloring and the texture is excellent -- almost like watercolor in the background. Very nice contrast with Bucky's solid lines.

Makes me very curious about the fic (I have so many bookmarked it is tragic)

Thanks very much :) It was a lot of fun to work on this! I know what you mean about having a lot of fics bookmarked, my list just keeps getting longer as well. The fic is not very long though, so if you feel like a short read, I recommend it a lot.
