Why this piece is awesome: This is one of my favourite artworks by Leyna, and a classic Stargate Atlantis AU to finish off June. I love the structure of the picture  with John and Rodney done  in cooler colours, outside in the evening in intense conversation - well, Rodney's talking of course, and John's looking serious and intrigued. Then the rest of the party inside, in the warmer, candle-lit drawing room. The likenesses are excellent and it looks so real - good for inspiring all sorts of stories!

Why this piece is awesome: This manip surfaced a while ago, I think on tumblr, and it was confirmed that the creator was Merentha, as signed. It's such a classic, with John perfect as Solo and I love the way Merentha has blended Ronon and Chewbacca so Ronon really is Chewie. A classic AU fusion, and I wanted to memorialize it here.

Why this piece is awesome: These are portraits for a New York-based detective (Law and Order) AU where the team are in law enforcement - John and Ronon are cops and Teyla and Rodney are lawyers. They all look very cool and determined! It's really lovely work with nifty details, excellent likenesses and great colouring.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm playing catch-up with SGA-AU recs here, and this is another by loobeeinthesky - this one's on LJ and might otherwise be hard to locate. It's an Earth-based AU, with John as a missing C&W singer and Rodney either looking for him or aiding and abetting him. The collage-style art tells a gripping story all by itself, and as ever the likenesses are amazing. It's really excellent.

Why this piece is awesome: Sorry I'm so late with the recs this month - overloaded with a big challenge. I'm doing SGA alternate universe art this month, and this one is completely awesome - John and Rodney as WWII pilots in the Battle of Britain! John's in trouble as usual, and Rodney's keeping a stiff upper lip, but he's looking pretty worried. The likenesses are amazing, and they're both so dashing!

Why this piece is awesome: Another great artwork by Leyna - this one is from the SGA Big Bang 2008. I love their focused expressions, the tenderness, and the likenesses are really spot on. Love the ambience of the darkened room, emphasizing the intimacy. Click through a couple of times to see it full-sized - it's definitely worth it.

Why this piece is awesome: This one's from the SGA Big Bang 2009, and it illustrates [personal profile] general_jinjur's great post-Tabula Rasa story "The Magical Number Seven (Plus or Minus Two)". I love the clever combination of silhouettes with the swirling patterns and the way sal used very fitting song lyrics curling across the image. Really excellent design overall. You need to click through twice to see the detail properly.

Why this piece is awesome: What can I say - I'm a big fan of semi-naked John Sheppard, especially with chest hair and dogtags!  This is a work from the 2010 Atlantis Big Bang, and the depiction of John's upper body is very well done. I love the dramatic structure of the art as well, with the shadowy crowd in the back and the crouched, moving stance of the man with the whip, clearly about to lay the first blow on Sheppard's back.

Why this piece is awesome: Back to SGA this month, to revisit some favourite art from Big Bangs across the years. This one's from the Reversebang. I love the colour balance and the intricacy, the perfect melding of images from the show to make a new story, and the way the stargate's echoed by the concentric design.

Why this piece is awesome: Leyna's SGA art is well known and I had to include a piece here. Also, who can resist Sheppard in harem pants? Not me. I love the rich colour, and the details - like the lamps, the embroidery, and the desert at night with camels against the moon. John's looking flummoxed by the mess he's in, and Rodney just looks pissed. Also for some reason, I like Rodney in a scarf.

Why this piece is awesome: This is great as it's a favourite trope of mine - android!John and android!Rodney in a cyberpunk AU, but despite their being mechanical beings the art itself is dreamy, romantic and beautifully delicate. I love the soft colours and the sweet way Rodney's touching John. Gorgeous.

Why this piece is awesome: This month, more SGA and Sheppard, but now the theme's not portraits, but Sheppard with others. In this fantasy piece by crys John's fighting the Jabberwock with his vorpal sword, like you do. I like the detailed monster, the woods and the "old painting" palette.

Why this piece is awesome: And the last of my "John Sheppard portrait" recs for November, also by Gloria-san. I don't often rec two works by the same artist in a set, but this is very different from the last one, and it's just so gorgeous. It's an almost photo-realistic painting of John Sheppard in a black leather jacket, showing himself off in a gorgeously bratty way. Maybe it's the pose, and the slightly youthful, idealised depiction, but in my head this is a young Sheppard, just before the airforce, at a time when he could still act out, off to a gay bar to get himself picked up. Um, yes...that is to say, I really like this one a lot! (Oh, and definitely enlarge it for a close-up view, as the detail is amazing).

Why this piece is awesome: I'm squeezing in two final last minute "John Sheppard portrait" recs for November October, as it's still November October in most places. This is dark!John, depicted as a vampire, so I really should have posted it for Halloween if I'd been organised. It's a powerful work, with Sheppard looking grim and dangerous, as is fitting, featuring dark, dried-blood colours.

Why this piece is awesome: Trystings has posted both the finished work and a WIP gif of the painting's development, and I'm a big sucker for WIPs. It's a great portrait with Sheppard looking away moodily, featuring his usual crazy hair, and an excellent likeness. I love the style and the digital brushes used for an oil-painting sketch effect. Good work capturing his eye-colour, too.

Why this piece is awesome: Crysothemis is a legend with her wonderful John Sheppard drawings, and this one's a particular favourite of mine. He's just so utterly Sheppardy in this, standing there awkwardly with the damn wings and looking shifty in a "hey, don't blame me for these, I just touched the thing" kind of way. Gorgeous. Plus, bonus thigh holster!
