Title: How To Skin Your Knees Standing Straight [by fated_addiction]
Rating: G
Spoilers: Season 3
Design Format: Vector Design + Illustration
Tools Used: Adobe Photoshop 7.0

Artist's Notes: I think I went a little crazy with this one. Remember that when I started working on this challenge I was still, very much into House MD. Anyways, I did a novel cover, and a vector art banner for the challenge.

The novel cover was easy because I had asked the author for input and I knew she wanted something very minimal. The Banner Art, I went to town with! As much as I am not a big fan of s3, I loved the "quit-scene" and I think it encaptures the much needed tension filled ambience "I" always feel when I see this particular couple on screen. With the cellphone being a link back to the fiction for which this art was being made.

I attempted to make a somewhat dreamy atmosphere without wanting to let go of the angst and making it completely feminine. Hope I established it with the dull colors and 3d abstract vector lines/shapes.

Title: Time Marches On [by: namasteyoga]
Rating: G
Spoilers: None
Design Format: Vector Designs + 3d Gradients
Tools Used: Adobe Photoshop 7.0 + ImageReady CS 2.0

Artist's Notes: Unlike my last venture, I had no pairing prejudices for "Time Marches On." Just saw the excerpt and saw myself making some sort of cogs-wheel art!

At first, I had a vision of the whole team being a cog-wheel on the house (the person) machinery. After communicating with the author I felt she had a very different perspective on how she viewed this story and so I had to alter my original idea a bit.

I have to say I am not completely happy with the way this fanart turned out. Just because I would've liked it to have more "House" in it. Then again, I hope the dark colors and simplistic value address to the emptiness "House" feels as he thinks of time/routine/life.

Cool fact: I made this novel cover keeping the exact dimension of a real paper-back in mind. Just in case this author gets published. *fingers crossed* :P
