Marvel_Bang art based on the Avengers/White Collar crossover Like an Arrow Through a Flock of Doves by arsenicarcher and hoosierbitch. I did 3 drawings (2 main ones and one little 'bonus' one), and they're each posted as their own chapter.

Drawing #1: Neal & Clint in prison
Based on the scene where Neal smuggles ice cream into the prison and they eat it together in the yard.
Drawing #1 notes:
I wanted a drawing that would show Neal and Clint's tentative friendship in prison, plus I wanted a drawing from the prison part of the story but I didn't want to draw anything really disturbing. I thought this would be a good scene to illustrate, since it covers both of those bases and I just generally thought it was a nice scene.
I spent some time thinking about the ways they would be sitting, since it's not specified in the scene, and I ended up being pretty specifc about the reasons for what I chose so I wanted to explain them here. I pictured Neal lounging comfortably back against the table, all casual and trying to show himself as being friendly and open and unthreatening to Clint. For Clint, I decided to draw his with his legs up and crossed on the bench, and sort of hunched in on himself, because I thought it fit in several ways - the story mentions how he likes to curl up in small locations to hide himself, and also I thought it would indicate his subconcious need to protect himself.
I should note also that I blatantly took the background from a photo I found on Google Images and painted over it a bit. I hate backgrounds...
For anyone looking at the drawing who hasn't read the story, the lines on Clint's neck are a tattoo of barbed wire that he gets in prison. Poor Clint has a rough time of it in this fic. :) Also, the box on the table is the one that Neal gave Clint with the drawings of birds all over it. Birds are definitely not my forte...
