i thought i heard you say "have some faith"...

I found this while looking in some of my old illustration folders.
This is the study for an old project I never finished.
... all you are asked to do is to be unafraid

The first time I read the Nibelungenlied I found myself dragged into a reflection about loyalty and vulnerability.

My thought was that you can’t be truly loyal to someone without being truly vulnerable to that person, and that the heroes are precisely the ones who are strong in such openness. Dragon blood baths are only special effects around what really takes place there. Of course dragons are terribly dangerous, yet those dragons are not but magnificent beasts and they can only kill the hero, and maybe there are things worse than dying. What will really defeat the hero, what will break their heart open, will be quiet, subtle and fragile: a linden tree leaf.
I believe that the quality of being truly broken only by something so feeble is the real mark of the hero: the hero is only proven in the act of being broken. But this brokenness opens a new order of reality, inhabited by a deeper and much more incomprehensible hope.
Take care,

Tally marks

I put this on my Facebook, but I completely forgot to share with you that the past April 23rd I was walking around like this.
i wear tally marks, tally marks are cool

I was not being extremely clever up there, but if there's no one standing around looking impressed, what's the point in having you all?

Don't blink, I mean, until next time,

Supernatural: Mjölnir has really high (hair) standards

And more notebook doodles!
If you have watched the 8th season of Supernatural you know what I am talking about in here.

this should be an OTP

I am praying to Chuck that he secretly kept it and that at some point in the next season he opens Baby’s trunk and dramatically raises it in the air frying all the enemies around and leaving Dean and Cas (and hopefully Crowley) absolutely impressed. And I know I am not alone here!
C’mon he is the Winchester that normally handles the cool gory ligthsaber weapon.

Until next time,
☆ Leticia
little edit:
Someone in my Deviantart account just commented "SAM WINCHES-THOR!!!". I like it.
... And allow me to insist in my point about the hair.

Need for attention

Another one of my Supernatural-centric notebook doodles
wait, are those my tie and my trench coat?
I drew this after a vivid image of it I got all of a sudden. I wonder if it is possible that some real life angels are feeling a little bit neglected at the moment...
Honestly speaking, I would find this heartbreakingly lovely.
Take care,

Supernatural: beautiful

One of my notebook doodles.
I am posting some pics of my sketches and WIPs on Facebook, and my friends particularly liked this one.
I have been back in the Supernatural kick lately. I really, really like the show, even though I don’t think it is as good as it was up until season 6 anymore. Part of the reason is that the writers have not been doing a good job with Castiel (and don’t get me started with season 8 Sammy…), I think they are having trouble dealing with something as big as an angel without messing with him. So I feel the need of reminding him that he is simply beautiful.

a kiss on the tip of the nose

I find it a little frustrating that not even the fans seem to give much space to the possibility of Cas growing in grace and innocence, which I believe contradicts his fierce loyalty (God approved) to his main angelic command of treasuring and cherishing his beloved father’s dear creation. It is also weird how the angels are progressively portrayed as deprived of that quality (a little hinted back with Samadriel though...).
Nevertheless, Castiel may be a mess now, but he is still so beautiful. And I love ties, they are the most teasing male fashion accessory.
Take care,
