*meep* That's creepy!

Poor John, I hope he wakes up because the thought of the Team being stuck and lost there... :(

Thank you! :)

I figure that, sometimes, John Sheppard's mind can be a creepy place, a haunting place. Found the background image first, and the rest just seemed to fall into place.

Wow...I hope it's a dream..really frightening....

Very well done...

Thank you! I'm trying to get in touch with the 'dark' part of Sheppard's brain. If anyone has ever lived nightmares...

That's really chilling. Great artwork.

Thanks, hon. I started out just playing, but then it started to take a real shape. Glad you like it.

Oh, very haunting and creepy! Nicely done, Neeve!

Thank you, dear. Call it preparation or research... or getting in the mood.

Disconcerting and intriguing - love the colouring and the typography, and my favourite profile cap of Sheppard. Wonderful ♥

Thank you, my dear. The font is "Twylite Zone" and I spent about a hour deciding on just the right one - just a little of that 'McKay' focus, I guess. I do enjoy 'aging' photos and working with coloring, so I'm happy this seems to work and glad you like it. ♥

Oh, wow. This is amazing. I love how we don't know exactly what is happening but it is scary! Hope it is a dream for John's sake. :D

Well, you know with all that's stuffed back in Sheppard's mind, he doesn't really need nightmares... I was looking to leave this as an either or - if it's a dream, it's a trick because it's haunting and a treat because he will wake up.

Thank you, hon!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! With a side of awwww, and I hope it's just a nightmare. I really like the background, the colors throughout, and John's expression - a great match for the overall tone.

Thank you!! I came across the background first and thought it was so haunting. It was strictly monochrome, but still creepy - I just tried to ramp up the 'haunting' feel to it. And that's a great 'go to' shot of Sheppard, very versatile. This is what you do at 4:00 am when you can't go back to sleep... ;)

Very intriguing! I like the washed-out tones, how that speaks to the chilling aspect. I guess the trick is figuring out whether this is real, or a nightmare. Great manip!

Hmmm, that would be a good trick! Thank you so much. The original background was monochrome and still very creepy and I found myself just messing around with coloring because I was awake at 4:00 am - wide awake - then the rest sort of fell into place. So glad you like it.

Oh my word...........it screams of nightmares that we all seem to have at one time or other in our lives....
>:-)

Yes it does - and especially for Sheppard, since he seems to carry his very own around with him. That's sort of the main idea here.

Wonderful storytelling piece! :-D

Thank you, hon! You know, as I was working with it, I thought it would make a good "prompt" pic.

CREEPY!!! The misty shapes were disturbing, then they started to be more than simple shapes, that's when I really shivered. Very well done!

That's what got me about the background image. I was looking for a spooky landscape and when this came up, I had to really look at it. Once I saw what it was, I knew it was the one. It was really just manipulating it to make it even more creepy looking, but then I love doing that. Thanks, hon. Glad it gave you a little spooky shiver!

Ooooh, the haunted Sheppard has lost his flock. Eep!

I couldn't tell what the shadowy things were the first time I saw this (again, with the phone not doing these art works justice!), but I'm glad I took a second look. Delightfully creepy!!

What an excellent job, neeve!

Thank you!! I really enjoy working with a photo to make it aged and to bring out the story that I see there. It's nice to know when it works - glad you like it.

Eeep. I hope that the rest of the team hasn't been converted into those creatures down below. :(

On a happier note: love the colours at the atmosphere of the piece!

Thank you! <333

I think this is mostly in John's mind... but I'm glad you liked the coloring and atmosphere... that's what I was shooting for.

wow - that definitely deserves a story to go along with it! I love how you used the yellowish color to tint John's face. In fact, love the eerie feel to the entire piece. Awesome work!

(Let's just hope Rodney wakes him up with a kiss and a grumbled, 'no more scary movies for you, Colonel Suggestible')

Thank you, sweetie! The original background photo was monochrome, but I felt it needed something to bring out the story it wanted to tell - I'm glad that came through and glad you like it.

Let's just hope Rodney wakes him up with a kiss and a grumbled, 'no more scary movies for you, Colonel Suggestible.

Yes, that!!!

This is SUCH a compelling image. You can find them John, dream or no!

Thank you!! Yes, poor John, he's tortured no matter if it's a dream (where he has no control) or real (which he wrests control from whomever/whatever thinks they have it).
