People! There's another round of seasonal_spuffy coming up, and there is only one day that has not been claimed yet. So hurry up and grab that day while you still can!

This reminded me that during the previous round, I made a picture of Spike knitting, inspired by bewildermoth's wonderful fic "In For A Penny". If you want to know why Spike is knitting, go read that fic. And if you don't want to know, go read that fic too. The first chapter is here. We're getting a new chapter at the end of the upcoming round, and that's a treat I'm looking forward to.

Base image source here. Yes, it's Russell Crowe. No idea why he's posing with knitwork, but the leather coat he's wearing makes it a perfect base for Spike.

This is fantastic! :D (Also, I'm amazed you were able to find such a perfect base image.)

As for SeasonalSpuffy, I will try to post something on a free-for-all day. Thanks for the reminder.

Thank you! I was really pleased with my find of that base image -- it couldn't have been better.

Good luck with your Seasonal Spuffy contribution, I hope you'll be able to make it. But if not, I'm sure there will be other rounds.

That's an adorable image.

Thank you! Just the idea of Spike knitting is already super adorable, and I couldn't resist visualizing it.

You did a great job on this manip. It is totally seamless, which must have been difficult since Spike's neck is clean shaven and Russell's neck has some stubble. I love how you reversed it from the original image, it works better reversed, especially since Spike/James is left handed. Wonderful!

BTW... thanks for the shout out to Seasonal_Spuffy!

Thanks, and you're welcome! The neck did take a little bit of work, but on the whole it was a doddle because the base image was just so perfect.
