Title
: Dungeons & Dragons
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Spoilers: none


This manip was made for Team Teyla AU Fest at the [info]team_sga community. Dungeons & Dragons AU prompt by [livejournal.com profile] friendshipper.

Teaser:







( click for bigger )

VERSION TWO

I've made the second version only, because I really like how Ronon's manip turned out. As a whole thing, I think, I prefer this one.

the original pictures: Teyla: here || Ronon: here & here (ver.2) || John: here || Rodney: here & here ||  dragons: here

The D&D artwork can be found here, under Home > Galleries.


When I started this,  I was afraid it would not look good, because the originals are hand drawn. This, actually, turned out to be the the easier part. :)  Composition, on the other hand... *grrr*  Elf!John wouldn't fit anywhere. Fortunately, the stargate idea struck  and this is the final result. Hope you like. :)

Very interesting. (And I do think I prefer version two.)

Thanks. I like the 2nd Ronon manip better myself. I just felt it didn't fit the overall manip so well. Glad you like it, though. :)

Very amazingly cool! I don't know D&D but I love the thought of them as elves and wizards, etc.

Thank you. I know almost nothing about D&D myself :), but I couldn't resist when I saw the artwork on their website. So many possibilities. :)

Teyla looks gorgeous although the top bit of her outfit makes me smile and think of Xena! :)

I am really amused that Rodney's a ... mage :D

I wouldn't expect John to be anything but an elf and hee, Ronon looks dashing as ever!

Lovely stuff :)

Thank you :) I manipped Teyla outfit a little because the original was a little on the.. lewd side. ;) Glad you like them, even Rodney, the mage. ;) I actually haven't thought of him as anything/one else.

Wow. I'm totally in love with Elf!John. Very nice. And I do think I prefer version 2 Ronon - great manip!
 
posted by [identity profile] aretria.livejournal.com at 06:53pm on 25/04/2008
Thanks. I like the 2nd Ronon better, too. I just couldn't him so well in the entire manip. Recolouring was hell.

Eee, magic-user McKay is genius! Also, John's elf ears are adorable. I like the colours and textures so that it looks like a drawing, that's awesome. :D
 
posted by [identity profile] aretria.livejournal.com at 06:55pm on 25/04/2008
Well, the ears are not my creation. ;) And, as the originals were drawn I had no other choice, but to fit in the manipped parts. I'm glad you like it. Thanks.
 
posted by [identity profile] neierathima.livejournal.com at 04:31pm on 25/04/2008
awesome. This is brilliantly conceived and executed. I love mage!Rodney. He probably spends all of his time insulting other peoples schools of magic.

LOL. I just bet he does. :) Thank you.

This is so cool! XD I can totally imagine the team going to some world in the Ancient database and something happening when they arrive. They'd all notice John first and be all: "WTF?" "Um..." "Colonel Sheppard, your, uh... ears?" And he'd be all: "Hu?" And touch them and be like: "WTF? My ears are pointy?!"

And then Rodney would see dragons and get freaked out and accidentally throw fire on something and, like, burn a tree down (or piss the dragon off). And they'd all be: "WTF IS GOING ON?!" And they'd be stuck because dragons guard the gate, so, naturally they'd have to dress in native clothing so they can get info from the natives on how to fight dragons exactly (because, you know, they just get attacked when they're in their tac gear).

And... and... yeah. ♥ You did wonderful work! Thanks for sharing!

Holy hot mama!

Ok, aside from the absolutely perfect choices you made for each of them (and I agree - this Ronon balances the image better, though the other one turned out very well on his own), this picture could not be more full of mind-blowing pretty. I love what you did with Teyla's skin tone and sliding John's face in without disturbing teh hair (some things never change!) and Ronon! The hot, badass orc! *wipes drool*

I swear, I actually thought you'd drawn Rodney to fit in, red glints in his hair and all.

So, a question - are you okay with me using your teasers in the masterlist? I'd like to do it with all the art, but I won't without permission.
 
posted by [identity profile] aretria.livejournal.com at 06:44pm on 25/04/2008
Thank you. :)

Ronon balances the image better *nod* Yes, exactly. I like the other manip better, but I felt it didn't exactly fit in in the overall picture, so I went looking for something else to manip. Glad you like. :)

I love what you did with Teyla's skin tone and sliding John's face in without disturbing teh hair (some things never change!) *grin* I had some problems with Teyla, especially with the outfit - the original was a little too... busty ;), but also with her skin tone. I wasn't sure if it wasn't too orange. Still am not sure if it's not too light.
And John - first I thought, I would leave some of his original hair but that resulted in a rather funny end product ;)

As for Rodney, no, the face is not drawn, but the lower part of his robe is. Based on the second D&D drawing. It didn't fit the rest so I had to draw... using a computer mouse. Never again ;)

Thanks for the comment and yes, feel free to use the teasers.

Oh HOLY CRAP that's awesome. WTB coherency, PST.

edit: Talking to hubby on AIM about this fanart:

Me: John is, of course, an elf.
Him: really?
Me: You never noticed how pointy his ears are? Very, very pointy?
Him: Yeah, I guess so.
Him: But, elves have a CON penalty!
Him: Maybe an elf ranger...
Me: BINGO!

Yeah, it's kind of hard to miss the ears. ;) After googling it, I'm still not sure what a condition? penalty is, but I can so see John as a ranger. Thank you. :)

Both Ronon's are very nice, but I actually really like the first.

I'm unreasonably fond of elf!John. Just looking at his glowy blue pendant makes me feel happy. :D

That is magnificent! I love the different fantasy types/tropes and how you've fit the characters into each!

JOHN'S AN ELF. *laughs* I cannot tell you how much that amuses me. Ronon's manip is gorgeous in both versions, Rodney's floaty-fire wizard is perfect, and I LOVE THE GAUNTLETS AND THE HANDS. They're both really hard to do, so, very, very good. Excellent.

Now, would it be at all possible, and bribes are definitely on the table here, to convince you to do Radek?

They're both really hard to do, so, very, very good. You do know this is a manip,right? The only things I changed were the colours. :)

I will think about Radek. Good idea. :)
