Hi ♥ Thank you so much, and you guys NEVER bother me ♥♥♥ I usually start out with a 700x900 px canvas, 300 dpi! WHen I’ve put down the sketch I blow the entire thing up by 200% and start inking. The comics usually have frikkin lives of their own, so I start with the small thing mentioned above, and then use the ‘canvas size’ option to add to the bottom (like, expand 100% downwards etc). The width usually stays the same. With the ginormous lengths these comics grow to (all in one file ughh :P) I eyeball what spots I should cut them. I view the comic at 100%, shrink it a bit if necessary and then hack it into pieces that I eyeball to be easily full-viewed without the need to scroll (cuz that’s a pet peeve of mine :P)
So, not an exact science per say, but I hope it was still a tiny bit helpful!! ♥♥
So, you all remember THIS awesome drawing i reblogged recently? Well, the lovely littleworldofskad wrote a ficlet for it and it’s SO FRIKKIN CUTE UGHHH! read it »HERE«! I couldn’t resist, I had to draw for it ;w; Gabe is being an awesome big brother and is collecting the pieces of Cas’ beloved bee so Dean can put it together again in the morning ♥♥
They are indeed pets! And yes and no, it’s not ‘normal’ per say, but not rare. Although most of the time the sentiment goes as far as it goes with (some) dogs in our real world! Like, you genuinely love your dog and want the best for them. But when push comes to shove, most if not all people will choose their allergic kids over the dog, keep the dog outside, and a lot of dog owners have uttered the phrase ‘I adore him/her, but it’s still a DOG.’ So, it’s part of the family, but it’s a very distinct difference between the humans and the dog(s) in the family!
A second hurdle is the way the human owners are ‘primed’ before taking in an angel. The experts seem to agree that they need to be raised in a strict, if not harsh fashion, OR ELSE these animals will take over before you know it!!1 What adds to that is that angels make all these animalistic sounds and have reactions similar to wild animals. It creates a bit of a distance between most humans and their new pet. Also because it’s mostly assumed that because they act like animals they are far less intelligent than humans.
SPOILERS: this is abso-fucking-lutely FALSE
Sam and Dean had never interacted with angels before and basically just got suckerpunched by protective feelings the minute they saw the neglected, distinctly child-shaped little ones. They had no expectations apart from ‘they probably are severely traumatized and will probably act like it’ and treated them accordingly and the only way they knew how (so like they were ittybitty kids ♥)
Charlie got Anna in a whole different way, but that’s for another time~
weeksdays have been kinda rough, and I really needed fluff to cheer me up (‘cause yeah, I can draw fluff when I want ;p).
And when it comes to fluff, the baby angels!verse (ask-the-baby-angels, by scribblyscratch) is one of those blogs and stories that never fails to make me smile and feel better when I need it. I never found the courage to send asks myself (I am absolute trash when it comes to mail and messaging), but last night I re-read it entirely and I was like “damn, I love this so much, I need to do something about it”… and twenty minutes after I was scribbling this in my sketchbook.
Go read the baby angels!verse, guys. Cute fluff with heartwrenching backstory, very very interesting world building, awesome art and happiness all along. ♥
(Art mostly inspired by this post, ‘cause the bee-lamp is just the cutest thing ever !! Kinda imagined Cas having a worse nightmare than usual and breaking it while trying to reach it or something… but gladly Super Dean is here to fix it !)
**WHOOPS reblogged this from the wrong blog so sorryyy my enthusiasm was too big!! Love on this one, I’mma remove the other one in a few ♥♥***
AAAAH it’s even more awesome now it’s finished omg ♥♥♥ I adore this so much, look at Cas’ worried little face ♥ So glad the blog could bring you some joy when you needed it, that’s the best compliment ever ♥♥♥ THANK YOU!
…hi i’m Pax and i’m apparently a tumblr-noob! i only JUST found out that it doesn’t frikkin matter if i track the ask-the-baby-angels tag because it’s hyphen-heaven up in this url and tumblr doesn’t allow tracking or searching that shit >B(
so MANY APOLOGIES if you lovelies have ever tagged me and i never responded omg ;A; so starting now i’ll be tracking askthebabyangels and ask the baby angels (because i believe xkit has a function that changes hyphenated urls to urls with spaces while tagging?)
Thanks to the boys for helping me demonstrate! (Gabe was promised a hefty compensation in sweets. Cas just seizes the opportunity to express himself.)

Gabe’s just like ‘Oh, you’re having fun over there, making noises? Well, guess what? I CAN BE LOUDER THAN YOU!’
'Fun, withOUT me? …okay then.' *unholy screeching noise'

lololol. Oh, Gabriel. I love that Cas is all cute little cheeps, and then Gabriel is a tornado siren.
Hehehehe ♥ Gabe CAN do the gentle cooing thing, it’s just that the ‘here I am what’cha gonna do about it’-style suits him better, hehehe. Cas only does it when he’s really freaked out and can’t see/hear his flock, poor bby
AH! I speak a little German (which is a /little/ similar) and I got the gist of that. *happy squeals that I haven’t lost the language completely*
It is! I was taught German in highschool as well (tho I only needed to be able to read it) and I’m trying to pick it up again, and lots of words are roughly the same, it’s awesome ♥ Always nice to see your brain stores stuff for a loooong time in case you ever need it \o/
Dean has various nicknames he lovingly bestowed upon Cas, among them ‘little bird’ which is really kinda accurate :D Dean tries to imitate the multitude of sounds Cas produces on a daily basis, and mostly just mangles them tbh
Cas doesn’t care, he lights up happily whenever Dean tries ♥♥
And man, Sam and Dean will never ever get used to the sheer amount of VOLUME Gabe can produce at a moment’s notice. Especially when he was still virtually all skin and bones (and vocalcords, apparently)
