Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

...Oh, wow, that's an awesome interpretation and I adore how it looks.

Ooooooo. I love the atmosphere! Ronon, and Todd!!

Yup, there's going to be a lot of carnage in a moment....

Awesome!

There's a distinct possibility, yes.

Glad you like it. When I read this prompt, I immediately flashed back to Todd and Ronon's final stand in TLM... there's something poetic about that scenario.

Oh my god, that's so awesome. Really. I love the classic ink and colour stuff... absolutely. *bounces* It was worth the wait, you have absolutely earned your points.

Wow. I mean...wow.

For some reason the thing I like most is the way Ronon blends in with his environment and the Wraith seem sort of other-worldly and out of place. (Um, at least to me. Black leather and startlingly white hair tend to stick out, I suppose?)

Well, and the detail. I love that Ronon's arm tattoo is visible, and that Todd looks fundamentally different than the other Wraith, as well. It's amazing.

That's just what I was going for. I wanted the two in the foreground to blend with the environment so the background springs to the forefront. Like a tiny moment of surprise when you watch it, to add to the tension.

Glad you like the little details. (I actually almost forgot Ronon's tatoo, but luckily with Photoshop it's no problem to edit this stuff in belatedly.)

Ronon and Todd make a great subject to draw. This was so much fun, and it practically drew itself.

Very cool! I like the atmosphere and how creepy the Wraith are. Also Ronon and Todd are a great team.

Yeah, they make a good team. I'm somewhat anxious what Joe M. and Co have in store for Todd next season. Of course that's also what makes the appeal... not knowing if he'll turn on our guys and try to eat them in the next scene. ;)

This is fabulous! And what a great take on the prompt!

Thank you. I was lucky that no one else snatched that prompt before me - it was just perfect.

Eeee! Gorgeous! I love the luscious shadows, the folds and details on Ronon (I could almost reach out and touch him!), Todd's hair (and how it's obviously *Todd*), the pine forest in the background and just all of it.

So glad you like it. Ronon and Todd make great subjects to draw, I found.

Yet another planet that looks like B.C... I bet those Ancients seeded the woods.

Ooooohhhhhhh, cool! The coloring is lovely, the shadows especially, so well done. The whole composition looks great.

Thank you, and thanks so much for the rec!

Dude, amazing use of ink, and I am in awe of your ability to capture the feel of moonlight. Simply stunning! Throw in the fact that it's Ronon and Todd (best scene ever from the season finale XDXD), and I totally have a new wallpaper~ <3<3.

:O)
So glad you like it.

Oh, that is so cool. I would totally read a comic about Ronon and Todd kicking ass all over Pegasus. ;)

Hey, me too! I mean, I'd totally read that. (I'd love to draw it, too, but I guess I should first finish the other WIP I'm working on.)

This is simply stunning! I really love how you managed to convey the alienness in the other wraith compared with 'our' wraith, as well as the eerieness (is that a word? meh!) of their surroundings. This piece has a lot of kinetic energy in it, I can completely picture what happens just a few seconds after this snapshot!

Oh, I really like that description. Thanks, I'm really glad you like it.
