Never You Fear (A Supernatural One Shot)He’s falling from the sky, and for a second I wonder if someone slipped something into my last beer, because there’s nothing but lake for miles around and no sound of a departing engine, so where the hell is he falling from?Never You Fear (A Supernatural One Shot) by kuri-osity
Running along the wooden bridge, I reach the railing just in time to see him drop past, his khaki coat whipping against his legs. He looks like a broken sparrow as he hurtles downward, crashing into the water at an angle that makes me recoil and wince. In the time it takes for him to resurface I almost forget how to breathe.
“Hey! Hey, you alright!?” My voice carries in this stillness, but there’s no reaction.
Obscuring shadows are swimming across his face. If not for his coat billowing against the surface of the lake, I’d lose him. Already the water is starting to swallow him up.
“Somebody! I need help over here! Help!” I cup my hands around my mouth, shouting to the point that my throat is ready to tear, but the hou

The name felt like lead on Sam’s tongue, so thick and heavy that he wasn’t sure if the syllable had actually made it past his lips.
The only reason he was aware of something cutting into his neck was the trail of red that was marking a small pathway against the stark fabric of his shirt. The dark suit and tie that usually accompanied the white-collared look were missing, but he couldn’t remember why.
His brother’s name seemed to drop soundlessly into the dark space before him. Everything felt heavy. Dull. Maybe he was dreaming.
But dreams shouldn’t smell of dust and abandonment. They shouldn’t be framed by cobwebs and wallpaper so aged that their floral design has faded into funeral bouquets. They shouldn’t have flickering candlelight and robed figures looking down on you.
No, dreams shouldn’t be like that.
But Winchesters don’t have dreams. They have nightmares. Sam smile
I've seen this subject come up a lot, and people are always incredibly fierce (or vicious) when it comes to defending their preferred medium.
Before I continue, let me first say that my preference does not equate to a disdain of digital art. Amazing art - as in, the pieces that are truly memorable or inspiring or make you pause to take everything in - are amazing because of the artist, not the medium used. These kind of pieces don't just look good, they present imagery or emotions that are unique in some way to their creator.
So, why do I prefer traditional art? I've actually thought about it a lot, and I believe it boils down to two main reasons.
1. More often than not, I find traditional art to be more impressive. I do NOT think digital art is easy, but I do think it is easier. There's no "undo" button with traditional art, and depending on the medium used, mistakes can't always be corrected. Also, the opportunity to modify in retrospect is often more difficult (if not impossible); no deciding in the last minute that red hair will look better than black, or that the background you painted would be more fitting with clouds rather than flowers, etc.
2. This is the bigger reason. To me, traditional art has a personal touch, a particular connection, that digital art does not. It's like receiving a hand written letter versus an email; there's something about the former that makes it more distinctive. Perhaps, it's that you can hold it in your hands. Or, that what's on the page can never be exactly duplicated by another human hand. This might sound like total BS to some, but I like the sentimentality of it all.
That's about it. I don't have enough active watchers to get much attention to this entry, but I'm happy to have written it. Good food for thought.
Eclectic to a fault
Art's been a fun past time on and off over the years, but I'm very much an amateur. dA has been my first experience with publicly sharing anything I've made, and so far the good has outweighed anything I'm not a fan of.
If you do happen to peek at my gallery and feel inspired to leave a comment..
From time to time, when inspiration is low, I'll offer requests or trades to kickstart my motivation. I won't create a waiting list if my limit is already reached, because I don't know how often I'll be doing these for free. Sorry!
