Atlantis art - Pythagoras's Nightmare

So, the 'Trapped in a Dream' square on my trope bingo card has been mocking me ever since I got the thing. I had absolutely no idea what to do with it. And then Atlantis happened, and clearly this square was meant for Pythagoras's subconscious. Or something...

Pythagoras has fallen under the spell of an evil witch. While his friends try to find a way to break the enchantment, Pythagoras is trapped in a world created by his own subconscious. A world populated by his memories and fears, his dreams and his nightmares...

Look at all those triangles! This is proof that maths isn't good for you, poor Py is having a nightmare... or actually a dream about Jason and his muscles :) Lovely wallpaper.

I have two words to say about this piece. F***ing. Triangles.!!!! *headdesk*

It seems to be mostly nightmares, except for the one where Jason has gone into gratuitous 'pose' mode. :-)

Brilliantly done!

Thanks! I wanted to put more nasty stuff in, but we've only got four episodes for screencaps to work with!

This is v. satisfying. Lovely use of layers and triangles and soft colours around b/w Pythagoras. Dreamy, in fact!

Ooh, thanks! It seemed like a relatively simple idea at first, and then turned into a multi-layer nightmare! It's just a shame there aren't more episodes to get screencaps of nasty things to torment him with *evil grin*

That's really great! Poor Pythagoras. But bits of his dream are scrummy and cute :) Nice fill!!

Thanks! A teeny bit of posing!Jason managed to sneak in amongst all the nasties. Pythagoras must be dreaming that Jason will rescue him, lol!

Aw, poor Pythagoras! Loving the triangles *g*

Hee, thanks. Poor Pythagoras, he has rapidly become my favourite, and therefore is going to get whumped. Even the triangles are out to get him! :-)

Absolutely perfect composition for that prompt. Great coloring and texture. Awesome!

Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with the end result, but all those triangles were a complete pain to do!
