So, when I first watched the Keep Grinding promo, I was really not sure whether that was actually Cas or not. I think I tagged it with something like #castiel #wait is it? #hmmm something is weird. Because it sure as hell looks like Misha… but something was off.
At that time, we didn’t know Cas was going to say yes to Lucifer, so I was confused as to why Sam would look so scared and why he would point a gun at Cas. And more than that, I could see someone that looked like Misha but I couldn’t really see Cas. Even from a one second shot and from this angle, I was ticked off. And it was not the lack of the trenchcoat.
Now I get it. It’s the way he holds himself. Cas always holds his head and neck straight. Not necesseraly high, but straight. Here, he’s more… slumped. Lucifer is more carefree in his posture, his neckline is not so straight, he’s sort of hunched forward. Do you guys see it too or am I delusionnal?
Misha is such an amazing actor that you could tell something was off just from a glimpse of his profileand I need to do something more constructive with my life.
Graphite practice- I have two commission pieces and a handful of personal pieces coming up that will all rely heavily on graphite work. I wanted to do another graphite portrait as practice before I got started. This is on 11x14 toned paper using graphite, a white Prismacolor pencil and a white Gelly Roll pen.
LUCIFER (AS CASTIEL) SENDS DEAN BACK IN TIME – Hoping to find a weapon powerful enough to defeat Amara (guest star Emily Swallow), Dean (Jensen Ackles) convinces “Castiel,” (Misha Collins) who is still Lucifer, to send him back in time to the last reported sighting of the Hand of God. Lucifer sees the potential in getting his hands on this weapon so goes along as Castiel and sends Dean to 1944 to the fated submarine mission that sunk the Hand of God. Meanwhile, continuing his charade with Sam (Jared Padalecki) while they wait for Dean’s return, Lucifer plans his next move. John Badham directed the episode written by Robert Berens (#1114).

Why do we even try? When the barriers are so high and the odds are so low–why don’t we just pack it in and go home? It would be so much easier. It’s because in the end, there’s no glory in easy. No one remembers easy. They remember the blood, and the bones, and the long agonizing fight to the top. And that, that is how you become legendary.
