I painted this forever ago - last summer, actually - and I finally got around to uploading it. Oil paintings are notoriously hard to upload photos of. It is, again, Billie Piper. I know I have a problem. Also, the white blob in the corner is for if I ever were to meet her and get her autograph (I was supposed to at FanExpo last year but then she cancelled). 15 hours, Oil paint.
Hey all my tumblr friends!! I finally got around to finishing a new SUPERCAT piece! I’m sorry I’ve been distant. Had a busy summer. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy my newest illustration of Supergirl and Cat Grant. :) I’ll be uploading a speed painting to show how I paint these from start to finish soon. The painting is to mimic The Pietà
In this image, Cat is seen crying over a defeated Supergirl with National City on fire behind them. Is it her final battle? Nah. I don’t think it’s that easy to take down our Girl of Steel. ;) Many hours of work but here it is! Enjoy!
Internet finally stopped being a tremendous pile of hot garbage and I can finally upload pics!
I was playing around with natural lighting today and got some pics I`m happy with. Numbers one and two are just experimenting with different handguard/magazine combos on my Bulgarian AKS-74. Number three isn`t anything specific, and four is an airgun with a few AK74 mags. For number five I pulled my French surplus FELIN T4 smock out of the closet to act as a background. Still unsure what I was going for but I nailed it! Last pic, number six, was a spur-of-the-moment thing, I was putting the S74 away when I decided I`d grab my shotgun and trusty leather jacket. I laid the jacket out on the floor, set the shotgun on it and tossed on a handful of Winchester`s Super X buckshot and a few wads from the bucket. I think it gives off a very “Terminator” vibe, and I`m thinking of adding a photo effect or two to see what I can do with it.
EDITING TO ADD
these aren`t the full-resolution pics, I had to get a little creative to get them to upload.
For the last month I have been editing my old fic’s, and have posted them on wattpad. (The link to that is on my tumblr page)
I’ve decided to put a few one shots together that have been edited.
Here is the first one… hope you like it! ❤❤
P.s I’m not tagging because I don’t know if anyone wants to be tagged in these because they are old fic’s :)
A/N: Finn is an up and coming actor (like nico. I also love his style so I went with that too). He bumps into a young women who isn’t swooned by him and he becomes in captivated by her. This is set in modern times around 2013.
“Oh shit… I’m so sorry I still don’t know how to use my bloody feet even after 22 years” The young women huffed whilst she bent down picking up the condense of what had spilled out of her handbag.
She had been to busy replying to emails as she walked through the streets of London, whilst doing so she failed to see the dense crack in the pavement causing her to trip and land into some strangers arms.
She still hadn’t dared to look up to see who she had bumped into allowing her raven hair to cover her face. Notably she was embarrassed over the incident, but more then anything she just wanted to leave the scene of the crime. She noticed movement from the corner of her eye to see the stranger was now bent down next to her helping her collect her belongings.
Turning her head she took a glimpse at the strangers face, her mouth dried up taking in the georgous features of the fit young man smiling back at her.
“No really it’s fine” he replied; passing her some pens and a make-up brush. He was dressed in fitted grey skinny leg jeans, a oversized red and white knitted sweater that was rolled up to his elbows and black combat boots.
His sweet face looked recognisable, but she didnt know how. She had only moved to London 3 weeks ago; plus she didn’t socialise with anyone besides her two friends. She studied him for for a few seconds more before the light bulb in her head went off.
“Are you that actor from that show… Ahh what is it…” She ran her her fingers through her soft hair removing it away from her face as she concentrated. They remained squatted in front of her handbag on a busy London street, but they both didn’t care.
He let out a small laugh and his smile radiated towards her more, it was almost blinding. “If your thinking of the TV show ‘common’ then yes that’s me” he said shyly.
“Your name is Finn right, Finn Nelson?” She questioned rising slowly to a standing position. They still had their eyes lock onto each other, the world around them was just a blur for now.
They were both brought out of their gaze by an awkward clearing of a throat. Quickly they switched their attention to another young lad about their age pushing his glasses back.
“Yup that’s me, and this is Archie… And you are?“ Finn asked polietly extended his hand to shake hers.
"Oh right, my name is Rae… Rae as in Rachel not Raymond before you get all cocky and ask” she joked and they all started to laugh. She shook his hand and waved to Archie who was standing slightly behind Finn.
She was actually grateful she decided to look decent today, she quickly appraised her outfit as she straightened out her clothes slightly. She wore her sky blue skinny leg jeans with faux rips around the knees, her lemon blouse that hugged her curves especially her large breasts (who she caught him looking at a few times), white cardigan and white flats. She let her hair fall freely and had a light dusting of makeup.
She usually never dressed like this usually, preferring to chose comfort over style. But today she was on the way to meet her best friend Chloe at a fancy cafe, so she didn’t think it was appropriate to turn up in her sweats and band T.
“Nice to meet you Rae as in Rachel” he laughed at her cheekiness.
“Well since my little sister is such a big fan of the show would it be ok if I got a photo with you, ya know to rub it in a little?” She asked biting the corner of her lower lip, causing him to gulp.
“Yeah, yeah of course not a problem” he gestured his arms towards himself, whilst she fumbled around in her handbag looking for her phone. She clicked into her camera as he put his arm around her shoulders. They exchanged a small smile before the phone was raised to take a selfie together.
“Thank you heaps, I better let you lads go… Nice to meet you both. And Finn sorry for the run in” she waved goodbye to both of them and hurried off in the opposite direction.
Finn turned to watch her get lost in the crowd before turning his attention back to Archie. He wished he had of gotten the chance to say goodbye before she left, instead of giving her a dopey smile.
“Well that was a first” Archie said slapping Finn on the back. Both continued to walk the familiar street back to the apartment they shared.
“What do ya mean?”
“Well that was the first lass not dropping her panties over you…” Archie joked.
“Yeah. I guess so, it was nice I guess”.
“she was very curvy..” Archie gestured his hands like he was mimicking her silhouette. “And very beautiful” he finished.
“Ya know Arch for a gay man you like a women’s body. And yes she was very beautiful… Very beautiful” blush rose on his cheeks when saw Archie smirking at him.
“Come on mate we have to get ready for tonight.. Chop is dragging us out to the club tonight” Archie moaned picking up the pace so they could arrive home earlier.
Rae finally arrived home around 5pm that day after being dragged shopping with Chloe after their lunch date at the cafe. She was exhausted. Crashing down on her settee, she decided to look through her phone and came across the photo of her and Finn.
She smiled at decided to upload it to her twitter account, she started to follow him over a year ago not thinking much of it.
@raeraeearl so I nearly fell flat on my face today, but I got a photo with this lad out of it though @realfinnnelson #totherescue
Rae giggled as she uploaded the photo, placing her phone on the coffee table so she could make herself a strong tea in the kitchen.
She came back to the settee and switched on the TV looking for something to watch before she had to get ready for the night out with the girls. She was not in the mood to party but she promised izzy and Chloe weeks ago that she would be there.
Her phone buzzed and she looked at her notifications.
@realfinnnelson is following you!
@realfinnnelson retweeted you!
@realfinnnelson @raeraeearl anytime girl! Nice meeting you. Another time maybe :’) #chancemeeting
Rae’s face went bright red as she re-read her notifications over and over. Before she couldn’t reply she glanced up at her clock.
“Shit I have to get ready” she murmured to herself before dashing off to the bathroom.
“Chop what is this place?” Finn complained as they walked into the club.
Finn was never one for big night clubs and would rather head to the local pub for a pint of two. The music was loud and the lights could cause an epileptic fit to anyone at anytime.
“Oh Finny boy live a little look at all the lasses around here” he shouted trying to be heard over the music.
Finn didn’t care about girls, they just threw themselves at him for his name and what he looks like… They never lasted more then one date, so he decided that being single was best.
Well that was until he bumped into a certain lass…
“Yeah whatever Chop lets just get a pint at the bar aye” he said in Chop’s ear as they started walking through the masses of people dancing.
After ordering a round of pints they grabbed a table near the dance floor and glanced around watching bodies jump around. Finn was busy looking at his pint when he felt Archie nudge him.
“Isn’t that Rae” Archie yelled at Finn before cocking his head towards the dancefloor.
Finn’s head shot up and he started to look around until his eyes fell on a dancing raven haired beauty. Her arms were flowing freely in the air and her hair was floating down her back, her black mini dress and black stockings shone against the lights. Finn was mesmerised just watching her dance so freely.
“Who’s Rae? And is that her in the black?” Chop asked, Finn nodded leaving Archie fill in the blanks.
“A lass that bumped into us today, she was dead nice and I think Finny boy may have a crush. Heard him giggling to himself looking at his phone today after she upload a photo of them. Giggly git” Archie laughed and Finn swung his arm to connect with Archie to shut him up.
“Well go talk to her ya dickhead look at those fucking assets” Chop pretending to jiggle fake books in front of his chest. “And plus that red head next to her is a little minx so I might chat to her” he continued before getting out of the seat and walking towards the girls.
Finn quickly followed him, because knowing chop he would embarrass the shit out of him.
“Hiya ladies. Care for some company?” Chop asked the girls.
“Finn..” Rae gasped when she saw Finn walk up behind his friend; looking sexy as hell.
“Hiya Rae” he lent over to her ear so she could hear him over the bass.
“Wanna get a drink with me girl?”
She smiled nodding and reached out for his hand which he offered her. She turned to Izzy and Chloe telling them she would see them later.
Izzy giggled and waved her off turning her attention to Chop and Chloe stood there dumbfounded.
Finn and Rae spent the next hour chatting away in a private booth far away from the dancefloor. They felt like they were in there own little world, they barley noticed the flock of girls that kept walking upto them, instead they chose to ignore all outsiders.
Rae looked at her watch as it was nearing midnight and she could barely stay awake much longer.
“I had fun with you tonight Finn, but I’m really needing to head home. I’m exhausted” she yawned.
“Of course I’ll get you a taxi… Rae?” He asked nervously.
“Would you like to go on a date with me tomorrow night?” As soon as he ask the question her eyes lit up and a wide smile reached across her face.
His nerves turned into butterfly’s as he reached out and grabbed her hand. It was something about this moment that had Finn lost in every expression that crossed her face. She was the only women he could see.
“I’d love to”
THE DATE: PART 2
Seven o'clock was nearing; the anticipation of the date was driving Rae crazy.
It had been over two years since she last dated, mind you he was a curly haired git who only got a kick out of telling Rae she could do no better. She had dated Liam just over 4 months before kicking him to the curb, having finally had enough of his poor attempts to knock her down a brick or two.
She had come a long way since her college days, the bullying, and the running away from her problems. Sure, she still had some insecurities from time to time about the way she looks, but so does any 22 year old women living in London.
Before leaving the club Finn had passed her his phone asking if he could get her number promising to message her in the morning with a time and a place to meet. Rae had awoken that morning to a message that was sent just past 7am in the morning.
Unknown: hiya Rae it’s Finn here. Just messaging you about our date tonight, how does 7pm sound? Message me when you wake up ;) x
She had turned in bed to Squint at the alarm clock next to her to read that it was now going on 10am. She frantically started typing, feeling bad about having replied so late.
Rae: sorry! Just woke up! 7pm sounds great. Where would you like to meet? :) x
She sighed, hitting the send button she nuzzled more into her pillow. Not even caring that she let her phone drop off the side of the bed.
Her eyes fluttering closed as the smile grew on her face; her thoughts went back to the night that she had just spent with him. Their amazing banter, his shy looks every time she smiled. Everything about last night seemed too good to be true, that if she pinched herself she would realise it was all a dream. In reality, this was all happening to her, the chubby, tall lass with a personality of a clown. Her phone pinged and her sleepy eyes opened at lightning speed, she grabbed her phone off yhe floor and clicked on the unopened message.
Finn: Great! How about a quiet little bar on the outskirts of London? I’ll pick you up from your place if you send me your address. Can’t wait :) x
She waited a few minutes before replying with her address and a wink face, not wanting to sound as eager as she was.
There messages flowed back and forth throughout the day, keeping the conversation light. She learnt little bit about what he does during the day when he isn’t on set, which isn’t very often. She was rejoiced to learn that he would much rather spend his time in dainty little record shops then posh bars, music was his second love after his acting of course.
Rae was now standing in front of her open wardrobe assessing her miserable excuse of clothing. 80 per cent was filled witg raggedy old band tee’s that she so desperately loved and could never- (no matter how much Chloe nagged her) part with.
Rae looked through the small collection if dresses she had whilst clicking her tongue against the top of her mouth. She huffed when she realised that she had spent 10 minutes appraising her four dresses when she never planned on wearing any of them, she was just going to a pub after all.
A quiet little pub that had probably never seen the likes of a pair of women’s legs in the years that it had been open, she needed a more casual look. She flipped through her jeans pulling out a pair of black skinny legged ones that she had brought whilst shopping with Chloe yesterday.
Then she scurried towards her set of drawers pulling out the first presentable blouse she could find, a sheer navy sleeveless button up she forgot she had. She paired it with a white singlet and navy ballet flats. Her hair was straightened and clipped to one side, her makeup fresh with a hint of Smokey eye which she had picked up from a YouTube clip she saw weeks ago.
It was now 7pm, she was applying the final touch of lip gloss and giving herself a once over in the mirror. She wasn’t dressed to the nines and loved her choice about keeping it more casual.
As she was slipping on her shoes there was a knock at the door. Her nerves started to get the best of her, her hands were slightly shaking uncontrollably.
She knew what was waiting for her on the other side of the door, a god like man with an incredible northern accent.
She opens the door and brushes down the front of her blouse turning her eyes to Finn. The smile on his face could not be missed as he stood leaning against the door frame with his hands stuffed in his jean pockets.
“Wow” they both breathed in unison, and laughing when they realised what they did.
Finn was dressed in fitted dark blue jeans, a plain white tee paired with a light blue jean jacket. His shaggy brown locks styled into a quiff enhancing his incredible facial features, he could melt the polar ice caps with a single look if he tried.
“Ready?” He grinned taking her in one more time.
“Yup, just a minute” she said holding up a finger before she dashed over to her settee grabbing her leather jacket and clutch.
She shrugged on her jacket as she walked back towards the door, glancing at herself in the mirror by the door as she headed out. As soon as the apartment was locked and they stepped out onto the landing Finn grabbed her hand into his, Rae’s mouth going instantly dry as she stared silently at this romantic gesture.
He gave her hand a reassuring squeeze and headed down the steps towards the door, Rae’s eyes never leaving their conjoined hands.
The 30 minute drive to the local was filled with comfortable silence; small talk was made but both wanting to save most of it for when they arrived, plus they both quite enjoyed the sound of the stone roses lightly playing through the speakers.
It was a quaint little pub just west of Kent, the building looked like it was barely keeping together with its rustic centuries old brick and timber framing. The front was dimly lit and she could faintly hear the sounds of the sign swinging as the wind picked up. Finn sat next to her nervously chewing at his thumb nail as he watched her eyes look over the pub.
She turned to Finn with an enthusiastic expression that was contagious, and they were both instantly laughing.
“Alright?” He questioned, still having doubts he made a mistake about bringing her here. Maybe she was classier to what she led on?
“It’s perfect, I couldn’t have picked a better place” Rae hummed in pleasure whilst she unbuckled her seat belt.
Finn made quick use of his and hurried around the passenger’s side of the car so he could open the door for her. She smiled and thanked him as once more her palm rested in his, neither of them willing to let go of the other.
“Come on, the pints are cheap and the old men are cheaper” he joked nudging his arm with hers.
She followed his through the open front door; the decor was no different to the outside. Old drum tables lined the walls with stools scattered around them, there were smaller square tables littering the middle section of the room in front of the oversized bar, the only thing relatively modern was the 90’s style juke box to the left of the room just before the toilets.
Men no younger than 60 gathered around the room talking amongst each other, not even bothering to make any eye contact with her and Finn. She was completely mesmerised by the atmosphere from the moment she walked in, it was everything she hoped it would be and more.
They were weaving their way through the pub making sure not to interrupt any of the other patrons. Rae noticed the bar was reasonably empty, there wasn’t even staff waiting to serve them.
Finn reached over the bar and rang a small bell hidden away, he turned to her smiling once he noticed her face of confusion. A small round lady hobbled out from a door around the back, Rae could tell her mood was glum as she made her way towards them.
The lady wiped her floury hands on her rose covered apron mumbling her profanities under her breath, but once she looked up her mood instantly changed as her eyes locked on to Finns.
“Finnley my boy” she cooed, walking out from behind the bar extending her arms out towards Finn.
“Mrs Dewhurst, how are you?” Finn asked pulling out of the hug and reconnecting his hand with Rae’s.
“Better now my handsome boy has come to see me! You should have told me you were coming in earlier. I would have made sure I was in the front” she fussed before turning towards Rae. “Now who’s this beautiful young lass on your arm”.
“This is Rae, Rae this is the sensational Barbra Dewhurst” Finn grinned turning towards Rae who was extending her arm out to the little old lady to shake her hand.
“Oh none of that dear. Give us a hug” she said shuffling towards Rae and wrapping her arms around her shoulders.
At first Rae tensed up, she had never been a fan of strangers hugging her but something about this lady made Rae melt.
“Now off you youngsters go and have fun, I’ve got a barman to hunt down” she said shewing them away with her hands but laughing at the same time.
“DAAAAAVVVVVIIIIDDDDDDD” she called as she waddled around to the other side of the bar.
"Where are we going?” Rae asked turning towards Finn.
“You’ll see” Finn pulled her towards the back entrance which was situated next to the toilets. Before pushing through the door Finn paused letting go of Rae’s hand.
The sudden loss of contact made Rae instantly mourn for his touch, but he had other ideas in mind. He stood behind her placing his nimble fingers over her eyes blocking her vision; Rae quickly moved her arms out in front of her as they shuffled forward slowly.
Her hands were now flat against the door; she felt a tingle run down the back of her neck as Finn learned in to whisper in her ear.
“Now just push” he whispered brushed his bottom lip against her ear as was pulling away. Rae nodded and proceeded to push the door until she felt a mild breeze whisk against her face. She kept moving as Finn did, until she noticed he paused.
Finn slowly removed his hands from her face, and Rae’s eyes fluttered open. She took a sudden intake of breath as soon as her vision cleared. They were surrounded by a least a thousand fairy lights dangling from the trees and fence. A large checkered blanket laid in the centre with a pinic basket placed in the middle.
Her eyes kept dancing around the scene before her, noticing the rose petals scattered over the grass. She turned to Finn, tears of joy stinging her eyes and before she knew what she was doing she was throwing her arms around his neck nuzzling her head into the crook.
Finns arms instantly wrapped around her waist holding her tightly.
“Is this ok?” He mumbled into her shoulder and pulling away but keeping his arms around her waist.
“Are you kidding me?” Rae scoffed jokingly. “Nobody and I repeat, nobody has ever done anything like this for me before” she emphasised grinning profusely.
“Come on let’s sit” he gestured towards the blanket.
They moved towards the blanket, sitting down as close as they could together without touching.
Finn opened the basket and turned to Rae and spoke. “Now something tells me that you aren’t a wine and cheese sort of girl” Finn pulled two cans of fosters out of the basket passing one over to Rae.
“Defiantly not” she chuckled grabbing the can off Finn with thanks. She tapped the top of the can a few times and cracked it away from her clothes in case of any spillage. “I do prefer a good beer before my lips touch any sort of crap wine” they both laughed clinking the tin together.
“So how do you know Mrs Dewhurst?” Rae asked quizativley raising an eye brow. Finn took a lengthy swig of his beer before replying.
“Long story short, that women raised me. I grew up in this very garden. You see when I was 4 my mother left me dad and I”
“Aw Finn I’m so sorry” Rae said laying a hand flat on his thigh.
“It’s ok, I’m ok. But once she left us we were left with less of an income and my dad had to work a lot more hours to keep a roof over our heads. Mrs Dewhurst lived down the street and kindly volunteered to look after me whilst my dad worked. So for 9 years I was at this very bar 6 days a week helping out or colouring in, or even putting on a talent show for the oldies until I was old enough to fend for myself. Archie use to live only two streets away, he would pop over and join the festivities we had here. She’s a really special woman. She will always have a place in my heart, she even calls me her superstar when people ask if she knows me” he chuckled shaking his head.
Over the next few hours were spent deep in conversation sipping on their cans and eating crisps straight from the packet, nothing about this date was fancy but he made it special.
They talked about their pasts, Rae opened up about Liam and school. The conversation moved onto lighter subjects revolving around family, friends and Finn acting career.
Rae was completely and utterly engrossed by Finns voice, the lingering touches, the solid eye contact that he kept. Nothing was unspoken.
“I’ve had a really great time” Rae spoke looking up at his face through her eyelashes. “I’m glad you asked me out on this date”.
“I’m glad you chose to come with me” he smiled brushing his fingertips along her cheek cause Rae to be completely lost in this moment.
“You intrigue me Rae” he said shyly, he kept his hand lingering in the same spot on her cheek a moment longer then necessary before removing it.
“Because your you. You’re honest and open, and you don’t care that im an actor. You’re just generally interested in my personality”.
Rae looked down briefly smiling to herself, this was the nicest that any male has ever been towards her. She was chuffed really; it made her insides turn to goo.
“Well you are pretty amazing” Rae laughed lightly regaining her eye contact with him. He seemed to be closer than what he was just moments ago, their bodies were now directly facing each other only a mere few inches between them.
Finn brushed a lock of her hair out of her face that had fallen, and tucked in behind her ear causing her to blush profusely.
“Your beautiful Rae” He inched even more closely, extending his head so far forward that he had to use a hand on the ground to keep him balanced.
“Can I- Can I kiss you?” the words stumbled from his mouth and now it was his turn to blush bright red.
Rae took a small gasp of air and nodded her head twice. Finn captured her lips with his, the kiss sweet and playful but at the same time the passion ran strong between them.
It felt like they had been doing this for years, the unison of their movements, the longing for more, it all came naturally to them.
His tongue swept across her bottom lip begging for entry which she reciprocated almost instantly as she opened her mouth allowing him in.
Their tongues danced together in a singular movement, their heads tilting opposite ways as they changed positions. Finns hand reached out to cup her cheek as Rae pulled his body closer by his tee; it was a supercharged moment igniting a fire between them. They slowly pulled apart but kept foreheads resting together as they attempted to catch their breaths.
“Wow” They both breathed and laughed almost instantly over another mimicked expression.
“I don’t want this night to end” Rae sighed pulled away slightly to sit up more straighter, but kept the closeness.
“It doesn’t have to end if you don’t want it too, ive got all night to spend with you if you’ll have me” Rae nodded and once again took his lips to be against hers.
Little did they know in that very moment this would be the first of many moments spend together, being complete aroused by one and other, shutting themselves off from the world just so they could have a moment.
3 years later…
"I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may now kiss the bride…”
