Steampunk Atlantis

"Archival photograph from the Atlantis expedition of 1907."

For an AU prompt challenge using the main Stargate: Atlantis team (John, Rodney, Teyla & Ronon). My prompt was Steampunk.

As usual, many references used. All the characters are referenced. I looked at vintage photos for ideas of the poses and some of the costumes. Notably Rodney's pose and clothes are referenced from a vintage photo of H Rider Haggard. This is a homage, since I read and loved his books as a kid, and he is partly responsible for my love for the concept of Steampunk.
The Zeppelin is based on vintage photos of the Graf Zeppelin. [link]

This is such a great piece of work. I stumbled on it on google a few months away when I was looking for something - and I'm glad I've found the original copy now! It's such an awesome concept.

Thanks very much! It was one of the prompts for a Team themed challenge, and I thought it was an awesome idea and had to try to paint something for it.

Well you did a great job, and I think it says something that I saw it about a year ago and it's been stuck in memory since!

this would be an awesome AU
the poses are so great and I love how all of them are still in character.

Thanks! I love AUs, and I couldn't resist trying to paint this concept. Half the fun was trying to decide who each of them would be in a Steampunk AU :)
