the great escape by hollyoakhill the great escape by hollyoakhill
Some people suggested a drawing where Sam works to free Dean and Cas, and/or Dean and Cas finds a crack in purgatory to escape through... so I came up with a combination. I like the concept, but I don't think I pulled it through as well as I should/could have.

I was partly inspired by classic renaissance paintings of godly figures, hence the dramatic postures of Dean and Cas.
whatever.

I added this to the background [link]

EDIT: After recieving some comments on tumblr, I created a follow-up on this: [link]

Very neat! I like your style. Slightly cartoony, where as most SPN art seems to be hyper realistic (or, you know, 'Was this drawn by a three year old?' stuff LOL). This makes for a very refreshing change! And I love the crack in space idea, reminds me of Doctor Who! Very cool!

I love this one, the colours are beautiful and so's the whole idea of Sam using Dr Who's crack to access Purgatory.
Um and now I read that back, the whole idea of Sam using Dr Who's crack takes on a totally different meaning. Oh SPN fandom, I have been lingering here too long LOL!!!!!

:headbang: THIS IS AWESOME.

But then the monsters grab Dean and Cas' legs and it becomes a tug'o war between Sam and the hungry, angry things. Sam loses and gets pulled into Purgatory with them and they fight together until Garth and Charlie and Sheriff Jodi figure out how to spring them free. Or God, in his infinite mercy, has pity on them. The end. ;)
