title: This Thin Fabric
for: crysothemis
by: bellewhan
request: I adore John, so really, anything John-centric or John/Rodney. Nothing NC-17 please, and no naked manips. I don't use fannish wallpaper and I'm not really looking for icons or a new layout, but I love both traditional and digital art. If someone wanted to illustrate one of my stories, I'd be totally over the moon, but that is really not necessary. I'm crazy about kisses and mood pieces -- art that focuses on an emotion or character trait. Really, I'm super easy -- put John in there somewhere and I'm happy. ::g::

notes: photoshop. john/rodney.

Eeeeee! OMG, space blanket!

I love this so, so much. The way Rodney's all curled up, with his hand tucked under his chin and his sweet, sleepy face. John's casual arm and relaxed posture and hair and sleepy sleepy face and . . . *contented sigh*

That is just incredibly, beautifully perfect. Thank you so so so much!

*happy sigh* when I got your prompt, I cheered out loud; I much prefer illustrating scenes. I did email the mods asking them to ask you what you'd prefer illustrated but I guess that the cyberdemons ate that email. So I got to reading your fic (but didn't comment since that might have been a little obvious). Endothermia was the outright winner. I did debate drawing a scene with Rodney in his dressing gown and John giving him a bar of chocolate (and blocked it out), but the space blanket scene won.

I'm tickled pink that you liked it.

There's something really really--

hm.

Magnificent, I think

--about this. It's the body language, I think; totally persuasive. Just--spot on, somehow; very very them! And the textures--the space blanket, the shirt. Rodney's arms make the piece, and John's arm slung over him, both guyish and also loving/posessive. And Rodney's both--self-centered, curled in, and totally trusting. It's really characterological. I like it a lot--thank you for making it!!

Magnificent that's awfully generous. Thank you, that's just really nice to read.

It just had to be: Rodney curled and John holding. As soon as I read Crysothemis fic I had the image (albeit chocolate bars and dressing gowns came a close second).

*G* lots of practicing, judicious use of an eraser, playing with my art mannequin and elastic bands and at one point my digital camera and gorilla pod.

This is a magnificent piece. cesperanza and crysothemis say it much better than I can.

I love it, so.

they were very generous with their praise. I don't think anyone's said 'magnificent' and anything that I've drawn in the same sentence before.

Ooh lovely work! Rodney's sleeping profile is brilliant, and the hand tucked under his chin.

This is truly lovely! They look all warm and cuddly. Can I cuddle up with them, please? :)

LOL.

In a perfect world; yes, you can snuggle with them.

Very cool, I love the way you portrayed the textures and the reflections on the shiny material around them. Also, it's a small thing, but the fall of John's jacket on the right side is lovely.

thank you

I took my art mannequin (I think that I should treat myself to some sga action figures) and some aluminium foil which I scrunched into a space blanket. I set up both on the kitchen table by the window. I'm sure that the neighbours were fascinated as I ran around trying to figure out the way that the light worked.

Absolutely beautiful. I love the colors, and Rodney all curled up in John's arms.

thank you. Funnily enough, John curled up in Rodney's arm doesn't seem to have the same emotional appeal (?)

Love this! Rodney's posture is absolutely perfect and precious.

Thank you

Rodney's posture is heavily based on a pic that DH posted in post filming exhaustion with his dog Mars draped over him. I can't find the link, though. It's a very cute photo

Neat! It has fascinating perspective and great faces. I am so envious that your fandom has enough serious artists that you can do an Art Santa exchange. WOW.

thank you for commenting on the perspective. I had a lot of fun with that. It's always nice to play a little. I wanted that sense of looking down upon them

This is just wonderful. I love the way Rodney's all curled up against John, while John holds Rodney protectively. So beautiful!
