Master and Commander Dean/Cas Style

A little something I made for spn_cinema

Title: Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
Artist: pixiequeen10thk
Movie Prompt: Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
Pairing: Dean/Cas
Rating: PG-13
Summary: After a sneak attack by a French warship inflicts severe damage upon his vessel, the HMS Impala, Captain “Lucky” Dean Winchester is torn between duty and a budding romantic relationship with his close friend and confidant Cas Novak, the ship’s surgeon.

Notes: Apologies for my less than stellar manipping skills! I hope you enjoy the cracky silliness anyway :). I'm aware that some of the text is tiny and difficult to read. Let me know if you want to know what any of it says (except the copyright at the very bottom - that was pretty much a meaningless ramble, I can't remember the exact contents of, about setting the hellhounds on anyone caught pirating the DVD). Please be patient in waiting for replies as I'm ill at the mo.

As per request, here are the smaller images separately. They're all in B&W since I added the gradient map on top of everything. Again, click to enlarge

And some icons...

(Please credit if you use and do not hotlink, thanks :))

And some wallpapers (including textless alternatives)...

All wallpapers are 1024x768. Click on the preview image to go to the full size image. Sorry to Sam fans, but the original image I manipped for him was just too low res to work as an individual wallpaper. I did try :S. He is in the collage though :)

Such a cute concept! I love the DVD cover and the quotes - particular Gabriel's. The manips of Dean and Cas at the top right look lovely - and the costumes suit them. Sam looks dashing in his fancy shirt, too.

Thank you! I couldn't resist getting Gabriel in there somewhere. I'm sure he must have had a cameo as well ;). And Sam does indeed look dashing. I was surprised at how well they suited their costumes. I was pretty pleased with how that top right one came out. It would have been nice to have that as the main pic but with my messing around desperately trying to get the main pic to look right (it still looks wrong but that's the best I could do with it :S), I had to merge layers and thus couldn't change my mind. Ah well you live and learn. Next time I'll remember to save 2 versions! Anyway, I'm glad I could amuse :)

This is brilliant, I love all the tiny details! (20th century hellhound and the Enochian warning is probably my favourite). Also LOL at Becky's quote! XD Love!
May. 12th, 2011 03:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I had a lot of fun coming up with all those little things so I'm glad they amuse :D
May. 12th, 2011 02:04 pm (UTC)
Sooo, if Dean & Cas are occupied with each other, can I steal your Sam? He's just drollworthy in this shirt!

I really love this. All those little details & the manipps are great if I may say so with my little to no knowledge about it.
May. 12th, 2011 03:35 pm (UTC)
Hee, you can indeed. Have fun with him :)

Thank you :). I had a heck of a lot of trouble with the main Dean pic and I still didn't get it quite right. Finding a pic with the right facial angle, lighting and expression can be hellish (at least Cas only has like 3 expressions ;D). I ended up trying to tweak things... and it didn't quite work. Ah well, I'm fairly pleased with how the others turned out. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for commenting :)

:D Happy to amuse! Thanks for commenting

Ooo, very pretty manip...um...wow, who knew Jensen Ackles would be that hot with long hair, but GUH, YUM!!!

Love it, awesome job! ^__^
May. 12th, 2011 04:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Doesn't he just? I was equally surprised at just how much it suited him. I might have stared at him quite a bit XD.

I am primed to adore this because you combined my two favorite things -- M&C and SPN -- but also it is awesome and hilarious in its own right. The quotes! (Right on Becky!) The credits! Trickster Light and Magic! Forget Yo Yo Ma, we're using Black Sabbath as the soundtrack!


(Also, inspiring. Is there fic for this? There should be. Both actual Age of Sail Dean/Cas and a behind-the-scenes of the making of this masterpiece. Director!Gabriel is WIN.)
May. 12th, 2011 05:14 pm (UTC)
*big goofy grin*. I'm really glad you enjoyed all the silliness I injected into the DVD cover. I had waaaaay too much fun with that :).
"Is there fic for this? There should be." - I wish I could oblige, but I'm not much of a writer. I've several WIPs, some of which I've been writing for over a year! I've promised myself that I'll finish some of those before picking up anything else. Do feel free to write something yourself or pass these ideas on. I'd be more than happy to link to a companion fic or 2 :D
May. 12th, 2011 07:03 pm (UTC)
I like it! :D I love what you did with Jensen's hair, he looks fabulous, and 20th Century Hellhound, HMS Impala, and Squee Magazine totally cracked me up. LOL. Jared looks very lovely too.

You don't happen to have copies of the individual pictures, do you? ;)
May. 12th, 2011 07:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very happy to amuse :). I don't have the main Jensen pic separately as I tweaked it once it was merged with the background. However I do have the others. I've added them to the post. As an added bonus, you get the full length shot of Jared :D. Enjoy!

What a detailed and thorough job! Cool!
May. 13th, 2011 03:07 pm (UTC)
If could see me you would catch me sitting here with my mouth wide open and large eyes (while desperately trying not to drool over my keyboard). I would love to comment decently, but you put Dean/Jensen with long hair in front of me!!!! I am so... overwhelmed. This is awesome!!! The idea alone is great, but how you executed it is amazing. Do you happen to have the Dean/Jensen-pics in higher resolution? I would love to have that pic in my bedroom...

Get well soon!!!
May. 13th, 2011 03:54 pm (UTC)
*glee*. I'm so glad you liked it. I find long haired Dean/Jensen just as drool worthy. It took me a long time to create all the details because I kept on getting distracted XD. Unfortunately the pic I manipped onto wasn't very high res so there's a limit to what I can do. I do have an upscaling program so I can give it a shot with that. It won't look as sharp - more like the watercolour filter on photoshop - but I'm willing to give it a go. What sort of print size/printer resolution (dots per inch) are you looking for? And do you want just the B&W pic or do you want me to do something like I did in the icon? Bear in mind that the bigger you have it, the more watercolour-like it will be, if you know what I mean.

EDIT: Here's a straight up upscale to let you know what I mean. This prints as 11 inches across at 300 d.p.i

What wonderful artwork you bring us. It's really beautiful! I've snagged Sam, Dean and Cas/Dean icons , thank you!
May. 13th, 2011 04:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad you like them :)
May. 13th, 2011 06:15 pm (UTC)
Gorgeous artwork!!

You did a fantastic job!

What a great way to celebrate Dean/Cas!
May. 14th, 2011 06:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I certainly had a lot of fun with it :)
May. 13th, 2011 10:31 pm (UTC)
Great art!
May. 14th, 2011 06:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you! What can I say? Dean's beautiful face is rather inspirational!
May. 14th, 2011 08:07 pm (UTC)
Oh well done! The boys would be perfect in that story, I wish somebody would write fic :)
May. 14th, 2011 08:10 pm (UTC)
Oh me too! I can only hope I inspire someone to write it :). Thanks for the comment!
May. 14th, 2011 08:10 pm (UTC)
OMG this is SO awesome!!! LOVE it!
May. 14th, 2011 08:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
May. 14th, 2011 10:26 pm (UTC)
Long haired period costumed Dean may be the hottest thing ever.
May. 15th, 2011 01:18 pm (UTC)
Isn't he just? He was very distracting when I was trying to get the rest of the piece done. I had to keep on stopping and staring at him XD
May. 15th, 2011 12:19 am (UTC)
wooow great job, love how you combine elements of SPN and real life together.I've never seen M&C now can't wait to see, just order it from netflix. Really well done, hope to see more.*love :)*
May. 15th, 2011 01:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad it worked for you. I couldn't resist making Gabriel director and the rest just followed on from there :D. Enjoy Master & Commander. It's wonderful, slashy fun :). I had so much fun with this that there's likely to be more silliness from me in the future :D
May. 15th, 2011 02:10 am (UTC)
MY GOD these are gorgeous, I don't know which one's hotter, Dean or Cas!? UNGH!!! XD XD
Dude, I wish there's a fic for this! *hint hint*
Thank you so much for sharing! ♥
May. 15th, 2011 01:24 pm (UTC)
It's such a dilemma, isn't it? *g* I'd love to oblige with the fic, but I'm really not much of a writer. One fic I've been writing for almost a year :S. I am hoping that someone will be inspired by this though as I soooo want to read it too. Thank you so much for the lovely comment x
May. 15th, 2011 08:12 am (UTC)
Okay, this is amazingly awesome! I think that Castiel especially looks the part of Maturin! Something about that role just suits him. Plus Dean with long hair! And that Sam pic turned out lovely too! I now have a new wallpaper on my computer, although it was really hard deciding which one!
May. 15th, 2011 01:39 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Much as I'm not a fan of overly long/big sideburns, there's something about them on him that's just too darn cute! I think he does suit the role really well too. If only I could pursuade someone to write that fic... ;). Long haired Dean seems to have gone down really well, which doesn't surprise me all that much since I can't stop staring at him either :). He's so darn pretty. Ooh which wallpaper did you go for in the end?

Sorry I missed you all yesterday. Hope you had fun?

Dean looks so young with long hair! These are great though! Cas in a neck cloth is my new favourite thing. XD Thanks for sharing.

I have a confession. A while back I started writing an SPN M&C AU. I hate AUs. WHAT WAS I THINKING?! It got stalled by my Big Bang, but. Um. Yes. Lalalala.
May. 17th, 2011 07:08 pm (UTC)
Heh so he does. I was so busy being distracted by the hot. I think it was quite an old picture I used come to think of it. From during his time on SPN, but maybe one of the earlier seasons. That pic just happened to have the right facial expression/shadows/angle.

"Cas in a neck cloth is my new favourite thing" - he does look ridiculously adorable and hot that way :)

"I have a confession. A while back I started writing an SPN M&C AU. I hate AUs" - You secretly love them don't you? :D I so can't wait to read it!!
May. 28th, 2011 10:29 am (UTC)
Oh, hush: your manipping skills are more than fine, this really is a cool collection of artwork! I love what you did with the guys and how you incorporated the original ship in the background, but I the best thing is how it all comes together on the DVD cover and the little jokes you hid in the texts and logos there:)
Jun. 10th, 2011 12:32 pm (UTC)
I@m totally my worst critic and I know it. Thank you for your kind comments. I had a lot of fun coming up with those little jokes so I'm glad to hear they were enjoyed :)
Jun. 5th, 2011 06:13 pm (UTC)
Your art is fantastic!! I love the colours, and the manip of jensen with long hair..hihi
Too bad nobody wrote a story for this...I love the movie!

Jun. 10th, 2011 12:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! Yeah I wish I'd been able to find someone to write an accompanying fic. Maybe someone will at some point :)
Jun. 10th, 2011 01:09 am (UTC)
I am....too stunned to speak!! WOW!!! Just....WOW!!
Jun. 10th, 2011 12:29 pm (UTC)
Aww thank you!
