Daleks! by fresian-cat Daleks! by fresian-cat
I've always loved the wonderful artwork from The Doctor Who and the Daleks Omnibus (1976)

So, here is an 'updated' version, with the Daleks replaced with the New Series variants.

I've tried to find out who the original artist is, but to no avail. If anyone does know, could you please let me know?

Thank you. I really enjoyed painting this, its a lot looser than I usually work. I think I learned a lot doing the copy.

did you use watercolor and ink for this?

No although I guess I should have - I didn't have any inks. I used a Sharpie pen for the linework, and very diluted acrylics for the colous

This is great! A really nice homage to the classic drawings of the Daleks. :D

Thank you. I really love that book, and its illos. I have a real fondness for the Who stuff of my childhood - it was all drawn/painted, none of this all-photo sameness we have now

Thanks :D

I took a print to get Nick Briggs to sign, and recognised it without any prompting - even wanted one. Needless to say, I obliged!

Great stuff, they look ready to do real damage in a cool blending of eras!

Thank you. I'm surprised by this, cos I found the New Paradigm actually look pretty good here. I reckon it must be a cartoony style to them? Which is why they never worked on screen - Daleks are tanks, not cartoons

They were just too big and garish I reckon, the subdued colours they used in Asylum worked much better.

Agreed. I saw those at Cardiff a couple of weeks before they hit the screen, and the blue and red looked good, but the white one (hadnt been repainted) looked pretty naff. Too plastic. The metallic red and blue gives them more weight and solidity somehow. We also saw them as part of the show/tour in quite low lighting which really helped.

I'm glad the production team seem to have arrived at the conclusion that they're scarier when they're smaller!

Fantastic work.
The colours are spot on and it just makes them seem classic and brilliant.
Also seeing them like this makes the new-new Daleks' shape make more sense.

I totally agree about the new Daeleks.

Thanks for the kind words :D

I can take no credit for anything on this, I just straight copied it. Except the Daleks, of course
