Finally done! Half manip, half drawing.This was supposed to be simply Elizabeth, sitting in the command chair. Then it morphed into a more sinister AU version, as I deduced I'd post it for Halloween (yes, that's how long I took to finish this thing :]). Then I couldn't get my tablet to work with Photoshop and everything went on hiatus. Finished drawing it in Painter.

Here're my (quite old) manips of Shepard. Nothing special, just 'stick the head on the different body' kind of thing. No originality at all.

Manip #1

The first one (Robin Hood - I just couldn't help myself when I saw the original photo. ;) ) inspired my later  entry for 12 Days of Teyla


Robin Hood AU )

Manip #2

This one is even older and is a result of my disappointment with the lack of John themed Wraithbait pirate layout (even if Pirate!Teyla is still my favourite :) ), I've also planned for Rodney, but got bored along the way.
Original photo is from PotC wallpaper everyone probably already saw more then once, so I will be lazy and leave it without the link. ;)


pirate!John )

Comments welcome. :)

In case someone was wondering, I'm still alive. Just a little under the weather, overworked and losing my interests in SGA. :( Anyway, here's some Teyla art, I haven't posted to this lj before.

.number one.

My BigBang 2008 entry for [ profile] secondalto's Teyla/Carson story "The Most Unlikely of Couples". I was in a mood for something romantic, and her story is, like, the definition of romance. ;) Anyway, that was supposed to be Teyla with Carson. Unfortunately, my manipping skills failed me totally. I had grand plans for some other scenes, too. Well, I ended with only this one.

.number two.

My 12 Days of Teyla entry. I made a wallpaper. Here's the original entry, on [ profile] teylafen  community.


Available resolutions


Next, I'll post some old John Sheppard manips. And Elizabeth (from Dungeons&Dragons). I wanted to manip Radek, but couldn't, and frustrated, thought I would make Elizabeth first, to get in the mood. Well, Radek's still not done. :( I'm also working on one AU drawing of Elizabeth (half drawing half manip, anyway). Let me tell you, I can wip out a decent manip in under an hour. This stupid thing is taking me weeks already. My 'everything must be perfect' approach to drawing makes working with Photoshop pure hell. Thank god I found a suitable photo for background, because I would never ever finish it otherwise. If I ever will.

*is frustrated - goes to sleep it off*

Manip for [ profile] reel_sga: Two Weeks Notice

posted by [personal profile] aretria at 05:23pm on 24/05/2008 under , ,

Fanart for [profile] reel_sga 2008 challenge.

Title: Two Weeks Notice
Prompt: # 63: Two Weeks Notice
Category: artwork (Photoshop manip - DVD cover)
Author's Notes: 
Yes, I've made John a bodyguard. Strictly due to my sudden inability to manip that gun out of Brad's John's hand. ;) I used the posters of Two Weeks Notice (and the quote comes from the DVD cover) and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. And, of course, some SGA photos. :) Enjoy.

I know, I know. I lose at thinking up original titles. :)

This is one of three projects I have in mind (I just lack some decent photos :( ). This one was going to look a little different, but, unfortunately, I couldn't find a suitable photo of Rodney. (I wanted him in a similar pose to Larrin).

Used various photos and screencaps from Travellers Be All My Sins Remember'd (quite obvious, which one ;) ) and Rodney's season 4 cast photo. But, don't ask me where I got it, because I really don't know. Looked for it on MGM, and websites and nothing. Oh, and John's season 4 cast photo (for the gun :-D ). The manip itself has three versions, because I couldn't decide on one of them.

Call it an AU. :)

ETA: Made the manips a little bit lighter. Looked at it at work, and they were really dark.

I saw the 12 Days of Teyla Love-A-Thon announcement at [ profile] teylafen and decided this would be a really great opportunity to finally make this manip. I was thinking about it for couple of weeks, now, but was getting sidetrack by pretty boys other things. What I had in mind, was to basically manip these two photos - one - two. Source: I think [ profile] mklutz post, again, but I could've gotten them from somewhere else. I don't exactly remember. Anyway, I love those candles (snoring Ronon, too, but I had to cut him out ;) ), and Teyla's clothing and wanted to make something out of those two images.

As it turned out, I used over twenty screencaps from 3x12 Echoes to make the background (floor, walls, etc.). Perspective of the whole thing is probably shot, because of it. It was a nightmare (and then I realized, it was the same room, where John, Ronon and Teyla stick fight and I have a high resolution photos on my hdd. But, as I've already finished, I could only slap myself for my stupidity).

Anyway, here it is. Together with a wallpaper, both 1024x786 and 1280x800px.  For them, I've also used hq images from 1x13 Hot Zone. From the late NewAtlantis.Net.

Utter crack. I would have never admitted I've made it, if it wasn't so pretty. ;) John Sheppard, The Vampire Count of Atlantis? Whatever. As I said before, I blame this on alcohol. :)

# promotional photo of Sheppard from NewAtlantis.Net (I cut his head ;P ),
# high resolution screencap of Atlantis from episode Lifeline made, I believe, by [ profile] velocitygrass,
# drawing of Dracula found via I don't know, who made it, but it's this one,
# Photoshop brushes (bats) (1) by Kencho (2) by wyckedBrush.

It looks like it's painted, but it's all Photoshop. The Dracula's drawing dictated the style. Head+hair+skin were the worst part. Added the second moon, the bats, recoloured the whole thing, so that everything would look like it belongs. Slept on it. Posted. The End.

This has nothing to do with the episode, in case you're wondering. Just something I thought about when I browsed through my pic folder. Those two John photos, or rather his pose(s), caught my eye and this is the effect. This was supposed to be John&Rodney piece at first, but as you can see, nothing came out of it. :) I couldn't resist the WTF! expression on John's face. :)

# John's photo from The Return II episode (at
# photo of John from Michael (at [ profile] mklutz   journal, from rare season two images)
# others from & Gateworld.Net, used for the details (gun, walls, etc.)

Oh, and I discovered, that this thing looks awful on my old CRT monitor (I'm working on my notebook). Wrong colours, wrong brightness, far more darker. *sigh* Hopefully it's not the case with all of my fanart? *looks hopeful*
