|Bye bye 2016|
Bye bye 2016
Dec. 31st, 2016 @ 10:41 pm
I just posted this at noel_of_spike
, and I'll post it here too. 2016 has not been the best year (though it did have a few
good points) and I'm glad to see the last of it. Wishing all my LJ friends a better 2017!
Art by the amazing Franco Urru. (With a little tweak by me.)

Thanks! Of course, 99% of the praise should go to the late Franco Urru, brilliant artist that he was.
Thanks, glad you like it! Spike just perfectly expresses my feelings towards 2016.

Franco Urru's art was THE BEST!! And I love what you did here and the yellow you picked. Great work!
I completely agree about Franco Urru. So sad he died so young!
Of course I wanted to respect his work as much as possible, but I felt a little tweak was necessary :-)

(I adored Franco Urru. RIP.)
Thanks! Franco Urru was with a distance my favourite Buffyverse comics artist. Love your icon!

Thank you! My friend kathyh
made it for me.
I have one more Franco Urru one (this one by maharet83
That one is great too. Kudos to both creators for making Urru icons!
(One of my intentions is to make a whole set of them one day. So far, I haven't gotten around to it.)

He made the most gorgeous drawings of the Buffy verse ever. (He is the only person I know who was *drawn* a Spike look.) I have more icons in folders I'm sure.... And if you make some, I'm sure I'll come and fawn over them!
Thanks. Who knows, I might even manage to do it this year!

Thanks! Franco Urru was my favourite comics artist and this image (with a little tweak) was just perfect for 2016, I thought.
Very appropriate. :)
(Also, damn, someone's looking good. Franco Urru did a great job. Thanks for sharing!)
It's cool how there are two versions. The "good times, 2016" and the "go back to hell, 2016". Quite like in life... (I'm now thinking about Janus+Spike. In a fandom with Ethan, I'd think there would be mythological New Year's stuff...)
Yeah, I thought it was pretty appropriate too (at least the "go back to hell" version)!
Franco Urru was the best Spike comics artist of all. Have you ever read the IDW Spike comics? If not, I can really recommend them, in particular Spike: Asylum.
Huh. No, I haven't. Note vaguely taken - thanks! :)
