Sheppard with, um, wings by crysothemis Sheppard with, um, wings by crysothemis
So this one requires a bit of explanation because, seriously, wings are really Not My Thing.

In fact, this came about because I was making a list of Things I Would Not Draw, and wings were right up there at the top. And then I got to wondering why not, and somehow it turned into a personal challenge, like, how could I possibly draw wings on John Sheppard and make them in character?

The next thing I knew, I was drawing this.

HB pencil with a fair amount of correction in Photoshop, because I was lazy and it's drawn on cheap sketch paper, so it wouldn't hold up to all that much erasing.

His wings are as uncoordinated as his hair! I love it!

But then, you know I adore your work. =) =)

I have to say, John Sheppard with wings is an amazing combination and something I thought I would never see. I have seen however, some really bad attempts at feathering, but this is Fantastic!

;) This is my true colors coming out -- not the wings, 'cause wings actually don't do much for me, but the oddball sense of humor.

Humor doesn't come across so much in straight portrait work, so I think I've thrown quite a few people for a loop, here. =P

Well the wings are a little too much, but there is some properly placed significance in there. All parts of the drawing are well done, especially Sheppard. ;)

Heh. Let's just say those wings were not exactly meant seriously. =P

(Is it possible to draw ironic wings? Apparently not. ;) )

Also, thanks for your kind words!

I love the irony of his I'm-going-to-push-up-my-biceps-with-my-fists-to-look-maaaanly bearing that is so very obviously to compensate for the girly wings.

McKay would have a field day with that observation. Hoo boy.
