Pairings: Sam Tyler/Gene Hunt, Sam Tyler/Annie Cartwright
Content Notes/Warnings: mild snogging, language
Medium: pencil + digital colouring (?)

Why this piece is awesome: It demonstrates in a nutshell what the two main pairings of Life on Mars are about. The cartoon style accentuates aspects of the characters; I'm very enamoured with Annie's curves, Sam's changing attitudes and Gene's attachment to his cigarette.

Why this piece is awesome: [personal profile] basaltgrrl  is exceptional at capturing likenesses. With a few well-placed lines she brings to life the wonderful women of CID, instantly recognisable. And they're smiling, which is just adorable.

Content Notes/Warnings: nakedness
Medium: digital painting
Artist on LJ: feriowind

Why this piece is awesome: Because Sam's sitting so casually in Gene's lounge while looking hot as hell. Also the block-colouring seems so appropriate for the 1970s, the decade the show is set.

Why this piece is awesome: It tells an entire story as you scroll down the page. The attention to detail, the intensity of emotion on Sam's face, the history of Gene's ordeal written in his bruised skin. A must for hurt/comfort enthusiasts.

Why this piece is awesome: [profile] loobeeinthesky obviously has a great sense of humor, based on the adept way she captures mood and character in her work. The first of the two pieces involves semi-clothed making out on a sofa, while the second is a typical drunken evening at the pub.

Why this piece is awesome: [profile] acidqueen31 only posted this one piece, as far as I know, in the LoM fandom... but it's entirely awesome. The style is somewhat like a woodcut, and the use of color emphasizes the uncanny nature of the Test Card Girl.

Why this piece is awesome: [personal profile] awabubbles does beautiful digital stuff, gorgeously atmospheric. This one is particularly so, what with the rain lancing down and the wet leather almost palpable... The expressions really tell a story, as well.

Why this piece is awesome: For one thing, it's a series of "neckless doodles" - a fern_tree specialty which works far better than one might ever imagine. Fern's cartooning style is so effortless and awesome, and she captures such a wide range of expressions.

Why this piece is awesome: Fern_tree's Life on Mars art is perpetually, completely wonderful, but this one in particular captures such an amazing sense of atmosphere. The lighting, the haze, the sense of the small, closed in space and the heat between the two of them... I am in awe.

Why this piece is awesome:
It's a 1988 police academy grad!Sam curled up on the couch with Gene. Gene's got his arm around Sam and a smile on his face, but is looking a bit lost in thought at the same time. Sam's got this expression of exhausted contentment on his face and looks like he's in the best possible place. It's so everyday sensual and really makes me want more. Absolutely gorgeous.

Why this Piece is Awesome: In addition to capturing the way Sam and Gene appear to be magnetically attracted to one another at multiple points, this reminds me of book illustrations from the 1950s or block prints.
