    I do not like arts contests and voting for those reasons. Arts are supposed to be fun creating at least for hobby artists (and hopefully for pros, too) and not so much about being the best.
    Knowing there will be a fave picked can easily make people feel uncomfortable for trying to be the best and so feel bad about what they can do or thinking they do not get a fair chance because another artist has more supporters who will vote in their favor.
    Also I am thinking such a gallery would be a chance for an artist to try out something new which they might rather not do when they think they could not compete with others then

    Game 1 : I was thinking, what if we could make a little challenge that there would be a little stargate on an empty page then every fan could draw some weird alien landscapes? Then we could make a gallery from the best ones.

    Game 2 : Or we could make some "SG postcards" about different natural landscapes if somebody would be good at photoshopping the active / inactive gate into photos. Is it a silly idea?

    Well.. Just a little stargate with some steps, then let the fans draw around it whatever they want. Or if it could be printed then it would be interesting what children would draw around a mysterious portal. Nowadays they make thematic colouring books for adult (Harry Potter, Star Wars, mythical creatures, mandalas etc.), then we should make our own Stargate this way... Then these pictures could be collected in a gallery etc. Not so many fans are pro here, so everybody could show their imagination this way.

    * * *

    I talked about in my "own" thread about alien landscapes :

    ...
    Have you ever heard from the Naica cave in Mexico?
    http://www.luvthat.com/wp-content/up...hua_Mexico.jpg

    Or the Wave in Arizona, USA?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wave,_Arizona

    Or the Glowworm cave in New Zealand?
    http://www.rumblerum.com/glowworm-cave-new-zealand/

    Or Hang Son Doong cave in Vietnam?
    http://www.atchuup.com/son-doong/

    or the Dallol Vulcano in Ethiopia?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dallol_(volcano)
    https://steemit.com/photography/@car...rt-in-ethiopia

    or the Danxia Mountains in Zhangye, China?
    http://www.awakeningstate.com/nature...hangye-danxia/

    So such places are the inspirations for me to imagine "wild" alien planets. Okay, they can never afford to shoot some scenes there (Naica would be too hot anyway), but maybe they could use them as digital backgrounds. You know I would be happy with a stargate on the savannah with some real / digital baobabs or acacia trees or dragon trees. There are such rare plants on Socotra as well which could be used as inspiration or digital background in the future. Just they should forget the pine trees!
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adansonia_digitata
    http://www.viralforest.com/alien-looking-place-earth/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracaena_cinnabari
    http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-...ears-old-00866

    Or if they could visit exotic alien worlds there are so many crystals, marples, mushrooms which could be inspiration to odd looking alien worlds. JM also said that it is not a lack of imagination that they can not find out new aliens with weird looking for the Stargate : Universe show... It is rather a budget question.
    * * *

    My next idea would be to make some macro pictures. I was just cooking some vegetable soup when I was thinking that even broccoli, cauliflower or carrot pieces could look like an alien world...

    (I believe I need some sleep.... )

    A stargate fan on livejournal made an atlantis coloring book a couple years ago. Those who wanted a copy just had to send her the amount, money and their addy, and they got a coloring book back.

    I have found these drawing on the wikipedia. Vilnisr made an amazing job:
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...y_stargate.png
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...s_stargate.png
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starga...y_stargate.png

    Resource:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stargate_(device)

    It is so good that we can compare the gate in these drawings.

    * * *

    I was a bit bored, so I deleted the MW glyphs and I've kept the empty gate as a model.

    So I have made an Asgard gate with norse runes glyphs:
    https://tamm-assets.top-fan.com/9e3f...46c87_full.jpg
    Maybe there could be a triangle Mjölnir motive on every chevron or on the main one at 12 o'clock. I had to add additional runes as I haven't had enough for 38 glyphs. I was not aware that even a rune called "Othala" exists.
    https://previews.123rf.com/images/zg...-letters-o.jpg

    And an Oannes gate with cuneiform glyphs:
    https://tamm-assets.top-fan.com/2ea5...90ab7_full.jpg
    But the main credits goes to Vilnisr as I have just played with his work.

    * * *

    I have made an Ori stargate as an original drawing by myself :
    https://www.stargatecommand.co/forum...tml&k=b4ff8e7b
    https://tamm-assets.top-fan.com/b74f...a7928_full.jpg

    Well. At least I tried, please don't laugh, I haven't got a calliper at home. I haven't drawned anything for ages and I am not a professional artist anyway. There are so much more talented people with the right tools on computer.

    I was thinking whether use the oval shape of the Ori or the original round shape should be kept. So the original round one has won, but that is the reason why is no inner decoration on the top.

    Then I decided to use the Ori symbols will be the chevrons, while the Ori symbol glyphs should be in a spinning outer ring as the inner looking Ori chevrons wouldn't have looked cool with spike standing outside, Maybe the top symbol hould much larger, but then the "staff" part would have been too long. Kawoosh is formed in the middle anyway, so the standing out parts should not influence active event horizont of the wormhole.



    The idea came from the Ark of Truth movie. I know that this opened oval shape would have looked better:
    http://kepek.csillagkapu.hu/albums/m...OT-BS-0028.jpg
    But then how would it spin? Would there be any "floating deltoid part " between the two edges (holded by energy field ike in their supergate). So I wanted to keep the round form of the original stargate, but the chevrons were directly places assymetrical, so the bottom and top part have got bigger distance. And as I said before that is the reason the inner ring hasn't got the decoration on the top. The other reason is that I have seen this painting on the wall :
    http://kepek.csillagkapu.hu/albums/m...OT-BS-0008.jpg
    But probably this is about a conquest about the infidels in Milky Way, as the minimalistic Stargate looks like an MW gate. They have sent the Prior through the stargate and even the Beachhead pieces, so they must have at least one working "normal" stargate. Maybe they spied on the Ancients, or they have seen the route of the seeing ships across the universe, so they could have meet with the stargate technology anywhere in the galaxy. They even had their own ring transports as well.

    The whole Ori gate is my little obsession to see some adventure in the Ori galaxy, just to see the aftermath of the fall of Adria and the Ori. Maybe some hostile forces would like to learn how to build more supergates, so Tommin and his people would be in danger etc.

    By the way I would like to mention that there were two different supergates in season 9. One of them is the normal Beachhead, when the pieces came through the normal stargate, but the Camelot supergate was much bigger. You can see the size difference, when Carter was standing on it.

    As I wrote it in my own little brainstorming thread here:
    https://forum.gateworld.net/threads/...galaxy-in-2020
    "One of them could be like a "transformers" type of gate. The gate would like a normal gate, but with a special function it could extend itself. There would be some folded gate parts between the chevron parts (like a folded tape measure), but then it could enlarge itself. So slightly bigger ships (like a tel'tac or alkesh) could fit into it. So if we count the scales, then Orlin gate is size 1, normal stargate size 2, this one would be the "medium" size 3, the beachhead gate is size 4 and the supergate is size 5.

    The other would be a bit similar. In this case the chevrons would be put together by an energy shield, similar to the beachead gates or supergates. There wouldn't be a normal spinning on this one, but we could find out a creative way how to dial it. Probably this idea could work in an other galaxy or maybe as an Ori stargate."

    I imagined the Ori gate with the same colour like most of the Ori staff. So the gate should be white or light grey, with black symbols on it. Maybe the inner ring could be this gold colour with black motives like in the movie. The Ori symbol as chevrons would be completely white (the buttons would be purple). Locking wise I had more ideas:

    1. The symbol of the outer ring would be "copied" between the little oval shape and it would like like a red projection on smoke,

    2. The chevron could turn around by the purple button, so the 7 symbol Ori symbol would look into the puddle.

    3. As a defense mechanism, the staff part could be extended as a barrier what would create a force field type thing.

    4. Or after chevron activation the staff part would pull up itself so it wouldn't disturb the forming puddle.

    The wormhole could be a flame wall. That would represent that power of the Ori in the galaxy. The watery event horizont was in Ancient controlled space, while here would be like a flame wall. (like in AoT). Or simply the event horizont would be orange or yellowish instead of blue, That would still express same thing that these gates are / were in Ori controlled space.

    As you can see I have got a concept, I hope you can follow me.

    I wouldn't call these as fan "art" as I was just looking for the right pictures what I tried to put next to each other. I am pretty bad at Photoshop, so they were done in Paint. Don't laugh, I am oldstyle.

    Thank you. I know you are an expert and I am just a beginner. As I said it can be hardly called as "art" as it is rather a collection of screenshots. They are not even changed sized anymore. Just it is really time consuming to arrange them that how the different color tones would look better next to each other. So I managed to make a mistake yesterday and the v2.0 had a repeat picture. Sorry, I was really tired.

    Now I fixed it and updated it:
    Stargate Atlantis weather forecast v2.25 (poster version - 72 pictures) by Platschu
    https://imgur.com/a/yVP9oOx

    I plan to make a little mix of planets, races and ships. Maybe a Stargate ABC with planets.

    edit. I have just realized that Imgur also decreases the resolution, so it is not the original size. Great. I will find a solution shortly, then I will share the links again. I am cursed.
