The drooping cuffs! That's such a perfect detail.
Great work, as always.

Oh, this Sam is small yet full of himself!

cuff!porn!!!!! *fneurgles all over the place in ungainly fashion*

(don't tell Sam, but I think everyone at the office will recognise whose shirt he's in...)

This Sam doesn't realize that, but this Gene certainly does...

Nnnnngh, cuff!porn! For the record, I put on one of my OH's shirts to simulate the oversized nature of this, so I got self!cuff!porn. Is that possible?

You're so clever, emphasising how big the shirt is compared to the slight Sam and it serves to make him look even younger too.

I can't take too much credit, as it was described that way in the fic... but I suppose I executed it!

Wow, Baby!Sam is tiny. Or looks it at least. I love how swallowed by the fabric he is. It makes him look weirdly vulnerable (although I imagine he's disagree with that). Great pic.

Baby!Sam would sneer in your face if you said that!

Honestly, I put on one of my man's shirts, and he's not that big, and it was this loose on me, so I don't think it's that much of a stretch. But so cuuute!

Oh! This is adorable. And very much how I imagined it (although I think the shirt is even bigger than my imagination, hah.)

What a charming image - I could not resist. Thank YOU.

I need a Simm!mouth icon! Stat!

Mmm, teeny tousled Sam and the wrinkly, baggy-as-hell appropriated shirt. This digs right into all of the awesomely wrong things in the series and pulls them out into the light, and underlines the "He's just a kid" of it all. I love his skepticism and his collarbone, but the scale difference keeps killing me happily.

Having the urge to draw the next bit, too, when Gene hands him one of Sam's old shirts. And, oh god, puts Sam's medallion around his neck...
He is such a KID.

Please do, if you wish. I would certainly not object.

Thank you! Sweet!

You caught young!Simm here BEAUTIFULLY, probably the best (from my poor visual memory) to date. It looks like his lips are slightly open and unf, you can understand why Gene couldn't hold back!
21st-Jun-2011 12:04 pm (UTC)
Oh, I can ALWAYS understand Gene not holding back...
Simm's mouth... it's just got a magnetic quality. Can't resist...

You're doing an excellent job of feeding my kinks here. ♥ I adore Sam's cheekbones, and his fuzzy mop of hair, and the fact that it exposes most of his chest ajdhflksdhfkdf...I have a half-finished fic for the temptation challenge which I had started before I saw this, and you've drawn exactly what I was trying to describe, it's like you read my mind.

It would only be right if we had this sort of limited LoM telepathy on this comm...
Just a glance at your icon makes me go saaaaam...
