Why this piece is awesome: This is so great! Matt and Luke having lunch together on a rooftop, chatting away and gesturing at their city. They are bros! Love the details (definitely click to make it bigger) like the cheese dripping from Matt's burger, and the napkin on his leg. They both just look really happy and relaxed.

Hey fellow artists! The new fanart community [community profile] drawesome has been really active since its inception in July and there are two posts that might be interesting for you guys too (disclaimer, yes I made those posts).

Posing references

This is a list of books, online articles, stock image sites and tutorials we compiled. I'd love more links though.

Storing art

This is a discussion I started today mainly because I don't feel I have a proper storage solution for my pastels yet.

I'd be delighted if some of you add your own resources or thoughts here in this post or over at [community profile] drawesome. We artists should help each other out!

Why this piece is awesome: Now for some individual portraits of the Defenders. This is a great portrait of Jessica - in her colour, of course. I like how she's hovering over the city, both protectively as a Defender, but also watchfully, hunting for the bad guys. Great likeness and details.

Cross-posting the comments I left @ [community profile] stuckyanonymous. :)

- Connectivity Error by bopeep, illustrated by curious_werewolf (Androids AU, Cyberpunk AU, Hackers AU)
Steve Rogers is falling apart, and together with best friend and fellow freelance hacker Bucky Barnes he intends to fight the injustices of the cyber plane and make a little money doing it in order to fix up the literal and figurative broken pieces that make up their lives. When solicited by SHIELD to take on a dangerous mission, Steve and Bucky find the hard way that they don't exactly have nothing to lose.

- Into That Good Night by Nonymos (Interstellar AU)
Steve Rogers has lived for entirely too long—long enough to see the world's end. The heroes are gone, and the Earth is pushing what's left of mankind towards the exit.
But when a makeshift team rises from the ashes, when a mysterious presence all but drags Steve there, he begins to think there may be hope yet. As they shoot for the stars one last time, Steve will get proof yet again that the future is nothing if not an echo of the past.

- Poppies in the Field by kaasknot (Androids AU, Cyberpunk AU)
Wherein Bucky is a severely agoraphobic combat veteran, and Steve is the android he buys out of loneliness.

- The Future Started Yesterday by monicawoe (Dystopia AU)
In 2011, the final S.H.I.E.L.D expedition searching for Steve Rogers found nothing.
In 2014, Hydra completed Project Insight and launched three armed helicarriers, killing millions.
In 2028, Tony Stark was killed *
In 2043, the Winter Soldier was decommissioned after 157 successful missions.
In 2111, Steve Rogers was found.

- for the ashes of his fathers (and the kingdoms of his gods) by LadyNimrodel, graphics by noncorporealform (Post-Apocalypse AU - Oblivion AU)
Steve and Natasha are an effective team. They work for Shield's Control Station, built after the planet was destroyed in the war with the Scavs. They are left on a broken and barren planet to keep the drones running that protect the hydra rigs, which collect precious water for what's left of humanity, now living in a colony on one of Saturn's moons.
What Steve knows is this: the Scav attacks are getting worse, even though they lost the war nearly fifty years ago. In two weeks he and Natasha are leaving to join the rest of humanity. And that neither of them want to leave earth.
What he doesn't know is why the Scavs are attacking again, why everything Control tells them feels wrong, and why he keeps dreaming of a man with grey-blue eyes and a familiar smile and who Steve doesn't remember.

- Summer Don't Own Me No More by Nonymos, illustrated by alby_mangroves (Solarpunk AU - Dystopia AU)
Bucky Barnes, weary soldier, illegal immigrant, sarcastic sex worker. Steve Rogers, miracle of science, lonely man, disillusioned cop. Both of them on a collision course in this brave new world, like that's not gonna end in sex and explosions.

- From Tralfamadore, With Love by newsbypostcard, illustrated by icoulddothisallday (Time Travel AU)
In 2018, Steve, Sam, and Bucky embark on a mission to explore a Hydra-owned warehouse when a kid with mutant powers sends Steve 18 years into the future. After figuring out where (and when) he is, Steve tracks Bucky down in 2036 to find he's become a successful business owner and an impassioned advocate for mutant rights. Steve's just as in love with Bucky as he was when he left, but for Bucky it's been a long 18 years. It's hard to accept when Bucky keeps him at arm's length... but Steve's never met a challenge that he didn't take.
As he gets used to life in 2036 and the flaws in Bucky's idyllic life expose themselves, Steve also has to manage a suspiciously ubiquitous security force, a Brotherhood of Mutants, and old competing loyalties among his aged friends. There's a Bucky in 2018 waiting for him to come home, but if he does that, it means leaving this Bucky behind for a third, unforgivable time. How can he choose?
What's Bucky not saying?
How can he face losing everything -- again?

Why this piece is awesome: Twelve and Missy and a vault door in between, neither seeing each other nor being seen. Love the style, the use of light and dark, and the closed eyes.
