The Pegasus Expedition by Anendda-Rysden The Pegasus Expedition by Anendda-Rysden
Legends whisper of an advanced civilization, of a mysterious city that can sink below the waves. Scholars have debated the existence of Atlantis for ages, but no one was brave enough - or foolish enough - to actually seek it out. At least, that was true until millionaire heiress Teyla Emmagin mounted an expedition to seek for the fabled lost city.

Over a century later, all that remains of their expedition is a trunk full of old documents and smudged charcoal sketches of strange artifacts and arcane writings scholars cannot decipher. Regrettably, the Pegasus Expedition itself never returned. However, almost a year after the brave fools set out, several fishermen claim that they saw a mysterious blue comet ascend into the night sky.

Oh, didn't I tell you? There is also a photo of the expedition, stiff and faded with age. If one looks closely, one can see the spires of a great city rising in the background. And if you care to study one of the tattered and burnt papers they left behind, you will see that someone penned the words "Our Journey Begins"

Strange... since those words are found on the last page of a journal dated many, many months after the Pegasus Expedition departed London, never to return...

A collaboration with *leyna55. Full credit goes to her for being my inspiration and for the amazing photo, circa 1907. The rest of the wallpaper was done by me.

Download for full size! :aww:

Love, love, love this. Great concept, great execution. You did a fabulous job on their faces and the poses are just right. Love the attention to details like the aviators glasses for Shepard and the gun on Ronan's back.

As much as I would love to take credit for it, I'm afraid I didn't do the "photo" of the team. *leyna55 was kind enough to let me use her picture in my work, so compliment her! I did the rest of wallpaper - the old, burnt papers, sketches, etc. :)

This is so amazing, I absolutely love it!! Both the 'photo' as well as the rest of the wallpaper! So kudos to both of you! :D
It's funny, I also had this idea about setting the Atlantis Expedition into the past (Victorian) though I envisioned Elizabeth Weir as the rich heiress :XD: I'm still dreaming about writing that story one day but I'm not sure I actually will...it would mean a lot of research and such...

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. Weir would totally make a good rich heiress! LOL. I'm not sure what you call it (Victorian, Steampunk, etc.) but I've always liked the Jules Verne kind of world. It's just got that old-fashioned adventure feel about it, you know? I'd love to write a story about it, too! So many ideas, so little time.

Thanks again for the comment and the fav! :)

I love the concept (and your description) and I really like the execution, with the little sketches and ancient script, the textures of the pages (crumpled and frayed edges) and the notebook and glasses. Well done! :)
