Mister April: Todd by sleepyowlet Mister April: Todd by sleepyowlet
My second contribution to the Wraith-calendar project - Todd in a bathtub. I blame it all on Susie the Brainslug - except the Rodney-ducky, which was my stepfather's brainchild. All hail to the Rodney-ducky.

"Rubber Duckie, you're the one,
You make bathtime lots of fun,
Rubber Duckie, I'm awfully fond of you;"

:iconernieplz:

Took one and a half days, painted with MyPaint, all things Stargate belong to MGM.

Please don't fav and run. Feed the Brainslug! :)

Oh no, he's just resting his arm on the rim (the angle would be wrong for anything else). Nothing interesting going on there! :XD:

Thank you! I'm glad you like it.

I'm convinced that Todd is quietly humming the song to himself there. :D

Thanks!

I don't like to see *my* wraith made fun of....the only reason I put him in my faves is that his face is so lovely in the sleeping.

I like Todd's sleeping face in this image...that is why I made it in my favourites.

The thing that I particularly like about this picture (apart from the cheeky subject matter, of course!) is Todd's hand. And I mean that in the nicest possible way....
I am not a visual artist but I have been given to understand that hands are one of the most difficult things to draw/paint. You have done a sterling job! Not only does the hand look realistic (proportions right, within itself and in relation to the rest of the body) but its placement is natural and it actually looks like a Wraith hand!
Well done!
I also like other details, such as the McKay ducky and its suitably stressed expression, the Wraith/human hybrid font on the calendar, the chevron washcloth as pointed out by WraithWorshipper (this detail actually escaped me until I read her comment) and the PINK shower cap!
I am not confident enough to post a proper critique on this one as I don't know enough about painting, but if I did, I would make two small comments:
- the placement of the pillow. Does it lie under the lip of the bathtub? If so, it would not help much in its main function of comfort, as the neck is still resting on the bath itself. When I take a bath (hmmm, now let me see, how many years ago did I find time to take the last one......??) I tuck my pillow under my neck, between neck and tub.
- I would LOVE to see pink bath bubbles, to match the shower cap! Just 'cause it is the Commander, you understand....:lol:
These comments are not meant to detract from your wonderful and amusing work in any way, I thoroughly enjoyed it! :clap:
Thanks for sharing

Yes, hands are horrible. Hands and feet! :D I'm glad you think it came out okay.

Ah well, you caught me :blush: I know nothing about bath pillows. Never had them, and it's been years since I had my last bubble-bath. My flat only has a shower :( - let's just say he got sick of it sliding away ;)

And pink bubbles? Oh dear. I mean he can pull off a pink shower-cap, but that cap and bubbles? People might get scared... :XD:

Thank you for your lovely long comment! :hug:

that duck is brilliant!
You're a champion, really. You made it, you deserve a big :hug: and Todd look... like himself - so it's a total success.
Diplomaticlly I won;t ask what is he doint with that hand under the foam... it can be completely innocent, maybe he's scratching his itching hip? Do I even believe that?.. Ah, Czarna, pull your head out of the gutter!
Anyway, splendid job!

Thank you! I'm glad you like. The arm is actually completely innocent - the angle is all wrong for the hand to go anywhere near any ... interesting places :lol: he's just resting it on the rim of the tub.

But interesting thought, that... :D

You know, there is another "boss" character that likes rubber duckies.

Maybe it's only sneaking it;s way down... or perhaps not. He looks too peacefully for anything like that. He looks like he simply felt asleep in that bath.

MmMmMmmmmmm Commanderrrr...... :D
LOL at that pink thing on his head :D and look at that "duck"!
Awesome funny and sexy! :)

Then I have some imaginations in my head about this situation......but it's not so public XDDD

I love the typo. It's a good mixture of wraith and human characters, I mean the font :)
So lovely lovely :)

Ah well, that's Todd. Wears pink shower-cap - is still sexy. :D

I had lots of fun inventing the letters and numbers. I quite like them too, and will probably continue using them.

Thanks!

Wonderful Todd bone structure on his face. The shower cap makes me LOL and I'm glad a few locks of his hair have escaped to fall lightly on the pillow. :) The chevron washcloth is a nice addition too. :) I like how the McKay ducky looks fittingly fretful. :XD:

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. I had lots of fun with that ducky :lol:

I think he was finally upgraded to guest quarters in Atlantis, since he's such a frequent visitor. Maybe he borrowed the cap from Jennifer? But who knows where he got that ducky...
