'Twas Brillig by crysothemis 'Twas Brillig by crysothemis
This is a Stargate: Atlantis piece, drawn for the PaintedSpires community on livejournal. My prompt was: "John fights the Jabberwock with his vorpal sword."

This is a graphite drawing (well, three, actually), colored in Photoshop.

Good Lord, how did you manage to ignore Tenniell and yet still make something so ridiculously gorgeous?!

This is so well done!

If Sheppard had to face the Jabberwocky, he WOULD look like this.

OMG!!!! *chokes on cookie, spills drink on keyboard while convulsing, computer smokes, crackles then explodes sending Stargate obsessed girl flying across the room to land on the cat. Cat runs in an insane rampage, knocks over the candle, carpet catches fire and burns it's way over to nail polish stash. Kaboom!!! Rolls over and brushes blackened soot off of eyes. Crawls back to remains of computer* I'm okay!!! Wow, this is awesome!!!!! I mean, like totally awesome! Hey, was there ever a fanfic written about this? Cause I would kill to read it!

In the series John sometimes tell about dangerous creatures ,but I never seen one of them. Until now.

Good work ,but I think ,John would not use a sword. Rather a gun (borrowed from Ronan of course :D )

Egad! That is... breathtaking. The colours, the detail... everything. I adore the dragon and the scratches on John's chest look real. It almost looks like an artist's sketch for the drawing boards. :faint: Definitely my favourite pic of yours at the moment! :+fav: Gobsmacked!

:giggle: That's fine. It'd probably easier to make sure your artwork doesn't get ripped off if you take control of it. :D :glomp: At least you shared this great deviation with everybody!

Hilarious! I'm not trying to snark, but the sword doesn't look like it weighs anything the way he's holding it... though it isn't really that important. :)

I didn't realize at first what it was actually an image of, but when I did, oh my god how I grinned. :D

:iconcrysothemis:
crysothemis Featured By Owner May 9, 2008
It's a super-sekrit featherweight sword. ;)

In other words, I was working so hard at trying to make him seem nonchalant that I kinda failed to take the weight of the sword into account. :lol:

But thanks, glad it made you smile.

Oh, it was for a challenge -- I didn't write the prompt (although I did choose it). And of course, there were those T-Rexes in The Siege Part 1 . . .

The poem has long been my favorite bit of Lewis Carroll (followed only by the Mock Turtle's description of school in the sea: "the different branches of Arithmetic -- Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision" -- heh).

So glad ya liked.
