Vampire, Fighter, Friend - 20+ icons of Benny Lafitte for spn20_20

Benny Lafitte is, in more than one meaning, the exception to the rule. First of all, he's fighting alongside/protecting Dean (and later on Cas, though he and the angel don't really get along in the beginning) in Purgatory despite being a vampire. Second, once he's topside again (thanks to Dean playing taxi driver for his soul), he's really trying to hide himself in plain sight and having a "normal" life (which is, funny enough, kind of a continuation to Ty Olsson's first SPN appearance). And last but not least, he's been on my extended favorite character list way before I ever saw a single episode of Season 8, thanks to some wonderful AU fanfictions out there where he's the supportive, loyal brother outside the Winchester family to Dean. This batch was made for Round 21 of [profile] spn20_20. Enjoy!

How great is the Category? Wonderful pictue choice.

Another fave is wings (I guess it's a texture, right?) - the texture use is excellent and I love the coloring of the background a lot. The coloring in "Full Body" is also amazing - I kind of hate this theme because it's super hard to find a good pic - you totally managed this :)
thank you! *hugs* Do you mean the actor or the character? Just check out Season 8 (he's in a couple of episodes). Benny is such a wonderful character, and Ty and Jensen are just perfect together.

yes, I used a texture in "wings". I had to ask our mod if it was okay to use other kinds of wings than angel wings, and she was absolutely fine with that. Given that Benny is a vampire, a bat was the most logical and only way to use wings ;) But finding a perfect texture, which has no watermarks and such, was a task of itself.

I usually do too, but with Benny, this kind of fell into my lap while I was looking for caps for the rest of the themes. And I got the perfect coloring by combining some techniques from Pixlr, paint.net and PhotoScape.
Do you mean the actor or the character?
Both :D I have, sorry to admit this, no clue about Supernatural...
