Promo pic of Tom Welling from 8x01! - I worship at the television altar
Promo pic of Tom Welling from 8x01!
Courtesy of jeannev (thank you again!) and andreas_ri, under the cut is a gorgeous promo pic of Tom Welling from the first episode of Smallville's S8. I don't care if you're the biggest spoilerphobe in the world (and yes, I guess it might be slightly spoilery), trust me, you're gonna want to see this!! NOW!!

I have no words, because there are none. Just look at him. *THUD* Who wants to make a poor girl an icon? *bats eyes prettily*

He is, without a doubt, the most stunningly handsome man I have ever seen. *loves him*

See the full-size version of this and 12 more stills at Andreas' journal HERE.

Oh my g-d! I SO hadn't seen the new picture!! Thanks for alerting me!!! Wow! I'm at work right now so I feel like I can't properly stare and drool, but WOW!
Thanks again!

I can't believe how buff he is! Look at the way that shirt stretches across his chest! And I can't stop staring at his face. Those eyes, those lips, that jaw, the scruff!! I'm at work, too, but I can barely form a coherent thought, much less get any work done. I just want to sit and stare. LOL!

Wait, now. This can't be a still from Smallville. Am I going color-blind or is he NOT wearing the blue shirt/ red jacket combo?! Did TW tell them, "You make Clark practically kill his own father for Lana? I didn't say anything. You make Clark chase after a pregnant, married woman? I just gritted my teeth and nodded. You make Clark utter a line like "The world ending doesn't matter- only Lana matters!"? I kept my mouth shut. But I swear, if you assholes don't let me wear something besides that goddamn red jacket, I am busting a cap on some mofos!"

Sigh, I know he's way too nice (and professional) to say something like that, but the image of it sure does make me smile. :-) Hee. Stupid wardrobe people.

LOL! I've missed your sense of humor! There was a BTS pic out there that indicated he's back in the stupid red jacket by the end of the episode, but at least we get this! I am so gonna love this episode, I can tell already! :)

Wow! He's bulked up a bit. And I really like his hair that way. *gets lost in her thoughts*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 27th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
I like his everything that way. *stares dreamily*

*iz ded* There are no other words for it. The man is nothing but sexy!!! I've had a hard time working today because I've been too busy drooling. :p Thanks for posting.

Me, too! I'm afraid I'm going to short out my keyboard, and how am I going to explain that to the IT guys? ;)

I can't wait for S8 to start now. If the CW does a good job of getting these pics out there, the ratings are going to be phenomenal!

So if no ones jumped on the icon thing I can see what I can do. I haven't opened PS in over a month but I have plenty of time to kill before my next class.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 27th, 2008 07:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
OMG, I would love you forever! A Tommy icon from you would be unbelievable! Does it help that he's at least dressed like one of the Supernatural boys in this pic? :)
jeannev From: jeannev Date: August 27th, 2008 08:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sexy! Gorgeous! Scruffy! Buff! Built!

There just aren't enough adjectives for his Pretty.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 27th, 2008 08:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree completely! I have a meeting in an hour that I haven't even started to prepare for, and I just can't tear my eyes away from my computer screen. I'm hopeless! *stares some more*

Holy CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 27th, 2008 08:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
I swear I was thinking of you when I posted this, Rap! :)

The other pics also have guns and knives! I think the CW finally figured out how to promote this show!

I saw this one at jeannev's journal. God he is freaking beautiful.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 27th, 2008 08:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's where I stole it from (with her permission, of course). And yes, he absolutely is!!
carolandtom From: carolandtom Date: August 27th, 2008 11:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
There are no words to describe what those pics make me feel. He's so amazingly gorgeous! *Sigh*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 28th, 2008 12:55 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm with you, Carol. No words. He's so pretty it hurts. *sighs with you*

There you go, there's your scruffy Clark. I know you've waited months for him. I'm happy to see you're not at all disappointed.

Now hurry up and get back home so you can shave, Clark! Please!

*not a fan of the scruffiness, at least on Clark *
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 28th, 2008 01:00 am (UTC) (Link)
What?! *sputters* *gasps* You don't like the scruff?!

That's okay, to each her own. :) But I just might think you're crazy. I kid, I kid! LOL!

I didn't like Jimmy with scruff at all (in Sleeper). I hope they never go there again.

Wow, he is just bursting out of his little grey top and I like it!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 28th, 2008 02:15 am (UTC) (Link)
I know! And the look on his face! God, he's oozing sex out of every pore. I can't wait to see this episode.

I swear if this pic were on a poster advertising an action adventure movie, fangirls (and boys, for that matter) would be lining up in droves to see it. Please, Tom, go on to make movies after Smallville. I want to sit in the dark at the IMAX and watch you drink, swear, have sex, and save the world! :)

You always have the best Tommy!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 29th, 2008 07:38 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't think there's ever been a Tommy to surpass this one. I've been staring at this pic every chance I get for the past 36 hours, and I still can't get enough of it. I can't wait to see how he plays this Clark in the episode!
starry_dawn From: starry_dawn Date: August 28th, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Does it come as any surprise that I'm more happy about that horrid red jacket not being there than about scruffy Tom? ;)

That being said, though ... *thud*. Gorgeousness, thy name is Tom Welling.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 29th, 2008 07:43 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm ecstatic that THRJ is nowhere to be seen, too, but based on the preview caps posted on KSite, the Justice League made sure to save it. *rolls eyes*

Gorgeousness, thy name is Tom Welling.

Truer words were never spoken!

That does more than stop my heart! Does a few other things first! Yum! This has really been a good week after seeing those photos posted! I couldn't wait to get home and do something with them! That one above is my favorite! LOOK at that amazing man!Absolute perfection and I HOPE he's getting the news about how much we love them cuz so many times people are critical of him but I'd like him to know that he's got NOTHIN' to be shy about! Take it off Tom! Get that shirt off NOW! :D

Wow you really DO have a lot of my avis!...lol..I haven't done to many lately. Mostly requests since I hate posting all of them and I like working with big spaces more. I'm glad you like them though. I see some older ones. They were pre-photoshop days! I really should try to make more but it's not as fulfilling for me.

*Goes back to staring at perfection on my desktop*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 28th, 2008 10:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's my favorite one, too, and I was thrilled to see it featured so prominently in your wallie. Everything about it makes me melt! That incredible chest, the look in his eye, the scruff, his beautiful face, and everything else. Even his stance is hot!! We've never seen Clark look so masculine or so sexy! Or should I say, so Tom-like? :D

I always wondered if he was aware of how the internet exploded with fangirl love when the Vogue pictures hit, and I'm wondering the same thing now. I hope he knows how much we love him, and that it's for more than his incredible good looks, too. Having said that, though, I agree with you. Get that shirt off NOW! hee!

I'm just thankful for the avis you have made. You just have a great eye, IMO. And I can well imagine that wallies and manips are much more satisfying for you to work on. But when you do include an avatar, I snag it! :) Like this one, from the Vogue shoot, which is one of my favorites. I just hope realizing the full extent of my obsession with your art doesn't make you feel like I'm stalking you!
fotw_sv From: fotw_sv Date: August 29th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Stalking? ....lol...Uh no! I have not entered the thought! I'm sure you're not the only one collecting fanart or mine for that matter! I have my own fanart stash that I've snagged from various artists I love, more some than others so I'm guilty of being a fanart pack rat! :) Trust me!

Hey I don't know if you ever read any of my thread comments on the subject but since you know Jc, I thought you might like to know that he was the one who got me started in real fanart to begin with! It's all HIS fault!....lol...I was just doing funnies and manips I think back in the early days and maybe a wallie or two that were IMO now very primitive, due to lack of good software and experience, and he asked me to make something for his video and then some wallies of Chloe so he's the one who encouraged me in my early fangirl days! Now you know why I miss him so much! He was a tough critic too but I appreciated his help and honesty in shaping my creativity at inception if that's the right word. Along the way it's been my online and personal friends, especially Nanette, who have encouraged me and helped me to get where my work is currently. That's why I appreciate you and everyone who comes by to say hi and comment. :) I'm glad you have become a part of that plus meeting really nice people along the way!

With that I say..."What a FAN-tastic subject to make art of! The perfect hot sexy man that Tom has become over the years! He's an inspiration"

That Vogue avi is also one of my fav looks on him. Beautiful Tom relaxed in a chair with that sweet smile.

Oh those new photos are really more Tom like than Clark to me, almost like an older Nick Castle. I like this Clark and I wonder if he'll have a more Superman demeanor this year! I'd really like to see the end of the BDA and see the Man of Steel! :) There's nobody else that can be Superman or Clark to me than Tom Welling!

Thanks for sharing your story about Jc with me. That's so cool that he helped you discover how talented you truly are! He encouraged me similarly with my episode reviews, inviting me to post them on his site, and helping me overcome my shyness about it. Because of him I met lots of new people, and I became more comfortable reaching out to others. That's how I ended up meeting (in the virtual world, anyway) you, and Craig, and Derek from SHoE. I do miss him, and I think about him a lot.

I like this Clark and I wonder if he'll have a more Superman demeanor this year!

I think someone was listening to you, and the answer is a resounding yes! Imagine my surprise when I signed on tonight to answer comments and found that we had been given even more gorgeous new pics of Tom!! He looks so adorable in the white shirt, and so heroic in the blue! I think that's my Superman! *bounces* I can't wait to see him save the day!
