Fan Art: Female John  
This was inspired by aretria 's fanart, the female!Rodney got me thinking, and after several hours of making, a day of waiting and then another few hours fiddling, I came up with what I have. Now, I made John/Joan science staff cause I have a real love for anything geek!John, but there's a bw version where she could quite as easily be military.

Joan Shep banner

I'm gonna follow her example on the set up, and so...

I used these three pictures to make up the final one:


Rachel's S2 cast photo
Torri's S2 cast photo
Joe's S2 cast photo
Photoshop 7
Lots of time

The body and face is Elizabeth's. I slimmed it down slightly, cause this is John we're talking about, and eventally fiddled around with the height of her head and so on. The hair is Teyla's, only darkened a lot. The eyes, nose and mouth are all John's. Though, they've been fiddled with too in terms of height and width at times. And other stuff...

I'm pretty sure it came out well, but I've been staring at it for ages, and can't decide if it looks too much like John, or not enough, but all things considered, not too bad. And, as I mentioned, she's science staff because geek!John rules and never ever gets old.

And here is the result:

Comments more than welcome, would love to hear what you all think about it, what I did right or wrong so next time, it's better!

Yay, you posted! :D I don't think I've ever inspired someone before. ;) I think I like the alternate colouring version best.

I've seen those around before, and it's made me wonder. I always assumed they were made mostly with pre-existing Joe pics? Always made me pause.

Glad you like it, and that it works like that too, it's what I was trying to go for with her. I'd offer you an icon of it, but she's science staff and not sure if you go for that.

In anycase, glad you like, and think it works!

Oh. My. God.

*spontaneously combusts from glee and awe*

How did you...how?

I could go into details.... I even have the different stages saved as a .psd if you want... *g*

Lot of work, fiddling, soft brushes, pasting, re-sizing, rotating, ect ect, but it was fun. And it's worth it to see that a few people like.

So Thank You! *vbg* Honestly, glad you like it!

:D It looks really good... Especially the blending on the face.

I'm so shallow, I'm actually amused that Joan has Elizabeth's breasts...

Also, scientist! Yay!

Thank You *g*

*snickers* Hadn't thought of it that way before, or tried not to anyway, and *snickers*. Oh Valen, probably good thing I'm not a sparky shipper or else my head may explode with that thought.


Glad you like it.

That is really amazingly well done. You put her face back together correctly, which is astonishingly hard to do.

That means a lot, coming from you *g*

Thank you!

Wow, that's pretty impressive - looks like a real woman, but looks very...Sheppard, too. (and I'm not even into gender-swap...what is this fandom doing to me!?)
Neth: DW - AQOM Smileneth_dugan on December 14th, 2007 01:38 pm (UTC)
I think this fandom corrupts pretty much everyone, makes slashers out of shippers, genderswap fans out of those who'd previously leave it alone.... it's like the one ring *nods*

And thank you! That's great to hear *g*
