I Hear You Now
After getting struck by electricity in Tao of Rodney, Radek somehow starts hearing Atlantis.
This is my art entry for the SGARB 2018! I really love Radek as a character, so I ended up using him in my pic this year too :) I also love sentient Atlantis, so I had this idea, that after getting zapped in Tao of Rodney, something happened to Radek and he suddenly started hearing Atlantis even though he doesn't have the ATA gene. So I tried to put that into the picture, as well as the team being there for him as the tries to figure things out :)
And I got a wonderful story for my art, "I Hear You Now" by the sweet and talented helenkacan! I love that she used Radek as the main character, and wrote such a wonderful, heartwarming story around little snapshots of his life, and the people on Atlantis, living in a future where the Wraith are no more. Please go read it an leave the story all the love that it deserves ^_^

I Hear You Now
I really struggled to get my idea into an image. There's really no clear physical representation to use for sentient Atlantis, so I ended up using the Atlantis style window as some sort of a connection to the city. I still feel like I didn't do as well as I wanted to in expressing the relationship between Radek and Atlantis, but I hope I've done enough. Then again, if this inspires anyone's imagination at all, I am happy ^_^
