The Wait... by Bekurah-Toshin The Wait... by Bekurah-Toshin
The Wait… is almost over…

Fanart of Dr. Sheldon Cooper and Penny from the TV show ‘The Big Bang Theory’.

Obviously a scene/moment depicted years in the future. ^^ But as far as I’m concerned this is how it will be one day, that’s what I believe (maybe not exactly like this, but you get the idea). If by some off chance you’re one of the few people who have no idea who these people are or what this show is (what rock have you been living under? lol j/k), I highly suggest you check it out, it’s amazing.



This piece was done as a submission to our (the Sheldon/Penny shippers) countdown to the season 3 premier project at The Paradox’s home base at LiveJournal: [link]
You can view all submissions to the countdown here: [link]
I also wrote a mini fanfic of sorts to accompany the image, you can read that and view my actual Countdown post here: [link]

Members who signed up had to pick a free day on the countdowns list to commemorate and submit a fan-work of some kind on that exact day. A fanfic, fanart, fanvid, article, photo manip, or whatever else you could think of, as we counted down each day to the season premier. It’s been a long road, and there’s been a ton of awesome stuff submitted. This is my contribution, and I’m quite proud of how it turned out. =3



As anyone who knows me or my work will remember, I don’t like to exact copy an already existing image. That said, I did use several reference pictures to help me with this (especially with their profiles, which I wanted to be just right), but otherwise you won’t find this or any individual pics of them that look exactly like this. This picture is unique. <3

Though you may notice a resemblance to an earlier piece of fanart I did of another couple. [link] I really just love this pose, and I’d been wanting to update it or use it again for some time. This piece provided the perfect opportunity, yay! I think I like it even better with Sheldon and Penny. lol

Ok, I’ve blabbed enough, hope you guys like it! ;3

Special Thanks:
I’d like to dedicate my entry to both my parents, who are not only both fans of TBBT (my mother is also a S/P shipper), but they are also the reason I was able to finish this and get it posted on time. The cord to my laptop broke days before the deadline, and I wasn’t going to be able to get a new one for at least a week. Thanks to some quick thinking, my mother found a way to fix it, and my father actually did the fixing, allowing me to get everything finished with time to spare.

Thanks guys, I love you, and I owe you big time! lol

--------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: (Seeing In Color)
My art inspired Tsukihysteria (AKA: Jude) of The Paradox (@ LJ) to put her own spin on this piece. After asking my permission of course, she posted her colored version of this art, and it came out just lovely. ^^ I’m so flattered, thanks Jude, you’re a doll.

Many around me who are fans of TBBT don't believe this could happen or should, if it wasn't a sitcom, this would make sense. Penny would balance out Sheldon and mature him in ways that would actually benefit his brillant mind. Amy's roaring lust would blow his mind if she is ever unleashed on him. In would be like opening another dimension. IMHO!!

Oh I totally agree... I was not a fan of the Amy character or what she brought to the show (unlike the addition of Bernadette, who was the cutest lil bad ass ever). She's partly why I stopped watching the show, though there were many other reasons. The whole dynamic of the characters and their relationships got screwed up, and everything was suddenly about sex, and girls vs guys, and everyone just seemed to hate each other, and it basically was turning into a generic sitcom... it lost it's heart, and so it lost me as a viewer. But I'll always remember the good times, back when the show was sweet and funny and nerdy, when it was just about this group of friends being amazing dorks, about them putting up with one another cuz no one else could, but more importantly cuz no matter what they really did love each other like family, and in the end they always had each others backs, and when Sheldon and Penny were like total bros. lol They were adorable together, in any type of relationship they shared... I'll always miss them, and the whole gang. *sigh*

Got off on a bit of a tangent there, sorry. lol Thank you for the comment! ^^

I love this for a couple reasons. But I have to point out that at right now, I am not a Sheldon x Penny fan... maybe as friends, but not lovers. I am all for Leonard and Penny.

However, Penny and Sheldon's characters are amazing together, because as time went on, they became better friends and did things together, which I thought was awesome. And in real life, Jim Parons and Kaley Cuoco are best friends, which is a plus too.

But, when Amy was introduced, I totally fell in love with Sheldon x Amy. I think their characters are great together.

But, this is still a great piece of art, and I'd totally dig a Sheldon and Penny kiss scene even if nothing happens after that.

I'm sorry, but today someone told me one of my BBT fanarts was stolen by someone else, and I've seen this one is on her gallery as well.

I thought you should know. If you want to check, it's in this gallery (I hate giving her views, but, well, I guess there's no other way): [link]

Sorry to bring bad news :(

Bekurah-Toshin Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh I know! =o And frankly, romantic or otherwise, I've always felt that Sheldon and Penny shared this unspoken bond, one even they themselves maybe somewhat unaware of. The way they are just so in sync, and alike in many ways despite also being polar opposites. lol Just... everything about their relationship is so interesting and entertaining to watch, and you feel like there's always so much going on between them in their scenes together, like while they are having one of those Shenny moments the whole world around them disappears. They are just so engaged and passionate (and FYI, I don't mean in a sexual/romantic way, I mean in a general sense). They just have that SPARK! :dummy:

I don't care what anyone says, I've always thought that Sheldon and Penny are two best friends who have no idea they are best friends. lol ^^

i totally agree...u see im watching the 5 seasons right now...and let me tell u there are a lot of scenes that create this feeling!!!from the 1st epi sheldon talks about her calling her beautiful...he is flirting with her..and her with him...the moment that penny is reffering to them as beautiful minds ...u should see the the look on sheldons face...During the seasons...im on the 4th now...u can tell their connection...in a strange way they are always there for each other!!he lends her money without a thought,he helps with the penny blossoms,she is the only who hugs twice!!!!and let me tell u that kaley especially during the hugging scenes she was having a great time!!i mean she is really laughing!!!!they seem to me that they are spending a lot of time only just the 2 of them!!!anyway i hope the writers see the light at some point...the shenny movement is constantly growning...let me tell u that...and not without a reason!!!!!the show itself leads all of us to this conclusion!!!yep brainy is the new sexy....and its about time the beautiful lady ends up with the lovely geek!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!the tall one !!!lol!!!!

lol!!! Oh let me tell you, fellow awesomenetastic shipper... I knows! :heart: :slow: I was really involved with The Paradox movement and group over at LiveJournal for a long time, and I still have EVERY Sheldon and Penny scene from the first 3 seasons on my laptops hard-drive. Not the whole eps... just their scenes. lol *face-palm* I mean, I loved the whole show and all the characters in the first 2 seasons for sure, but Sheldon and Penny is where it's at, yo! :love:

No matter what happens, they will always rock! May we never jump this ship! :highfive:

I'm a Shenny shipper, and I think this piece is just perfect. It has a whole ton of feeling, and I never knew that a drawing could have that much chemistry incorporated in it. It's beautiful. It's like the perfect moment for them, and I am caught up in it. When I glance at it in passing, I then just have to go back and stare at it for a while, every single time. Your skill really is astounding. I love it. I really do.
