SGA Regency AU by Leyna-art SGA Regency AU by Leyna-art
How shocking - another Historical AU painting! This is the last of my recent trilogy of Stargate Atlantis Alternate Universe paintings. All are based on other people's prompts from Challenge communities, but all also represent genres I enjoy (Steampunk, Detective Noir & Regency).

For the Paintedspires Challenge. The Prompt was "Regency AU, a rendezvous on a balcony"
Influenced by the works of Georgette Heyer, Jane Austen & Bernard Cornwell, my original intent was - Rodney & John escape the Drawing Room, to have a friendly conversation on the balcony. While I was painting, both their expressions turned more serious. My friend ~talietha suggests that Rodney is discussing Byron's The Corsair, while I think John (the one in the uniform) is newly returned from the Peninsular War - and (to use modern terminology) is still somewhat shellshocked. I tried to suggest a little of John's isolation in the painting.

If the costumes are familiar, I based many on the 1995 Pride & Prejudice, and John's is from the ITV Sharpe series. All the background characters are also from Stargate Atlantis (some more succesful in likeness, than others!).
As always, many references from SGA used, though I'm rather pleased that I also drew various limbs unreferenced (those would be the wonky looking ones).

SGA Regency AU by *leyna55. From the suggester:"Every once and a while you run into a piece of fan-art which stops and makes you go "hmmm". This is not just a polished fan-art for Stargate Atlantis but it is also for the Victorian Steampunk genre too." ( Suggested by bolsterstone and Featured by aunjuli )

Wow. This is gorgeous. And Rodney and John really do look like themselves.

Thank you! I had lots of practice painting John and Rodney and sometimes the portraits really worked out well.

Love love love this! I can just imagine Rodney McKay as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Keller as Elizabeth Bennett. There should be more things like this in the world! :) Love you work!

Thank you! Jennifer would be fun as Elizabeth, and Rodney has the arrogance for Darcy. I do like the thought of him dressed in regency clothes, in any case :)

Thanks very much! I like Sharpe and I thought his uniform would suit John, too :)
