Nice! I am working on a Dalek embroidery design for the wife’s pillows right now. You’ve inspired me to crack on with it.18 December 2013 at 18:29 #23071Anonymous @

@fatmaninabox — re. CGI Daleks. Very nice work. What did you use, if you don’t mind me asking?18 December 2013 at 19:10 #23074Anonymous @
I use a couple of modelling programs that I’ve had for donkey’s years.
The model was created in MilkShape3D. It’s a pretty basic bit of kit and doesn’t have any rendering capabilities but it’s the easiest modeller that I’ve used and is reasonably priced (£20 a few years ago). You can import/export .obj .lwo .3ds formats as well as meshes from a number of games. I bought it to makes custom characters for the original version of’ ‘The Sims’ !
The rendering was done in Anim8tor which is freeware. It’s not bad for rendering but I find it awkward for modelling.
I also have Blender (not to be confused with Blendr), another freeware package, but it’s very complicated. It took me a couple of weeks just to figure out how to import files 🙂
Textures are created in Photoshop although my Dalek doesn’t use any apart from the insignia under the eye-stalk.18 December 2013 at 19:50 #23075Anonymous @
Really love those images from tumblr. 🙂
That’s a nice little touch on the ‘Twelve Doctor’s of Christmas’, 11 passing drumsticks to 12, handing on the baton, so to speak.18 December 2013 at 20:51 #23076Tennantmarsters2013 @tennantmarsters201319 December 2013 at 12:09 #23122Anonymous @
@fatmaninabox — yeah, Blender has got what’s probably a needlessly complicated interface but it’s a surprisingly powerful program considering it’s free. Don’t know the others. Tend to use 3DS Max for my modelling with the occasional bit of Maya thrown in. It’s one of my New Year resolutions to sit down and have a proper go with Mudbox though….20 December 2013 at 10:04 #23141Anonymous @
3DS Max = £3,300 😯 I’d have to sell my granny for that, which would still leave me 3 grand short 🙂20 December 2013 at 11:47 #23152Ameliam @ameliam
Myself, family and friends have almost finished our own tribute to Dr Who and it is a story for between 10 and 11. It is shaping up to be really good and we have just posted a teaser trailer, comments would be very welcome!!!!

Saw this over on the Doctor Who tumblr: it’s apparently Thank You, Matt Smith in Circular Gallifreyan.20 December 2013 at 20:56 #23180
@FatManInABox- I can see your lovely Daleks & even the tea in the teacup. Thanks for sharing!

Here is a drawing I made of Matt Smith!
the drawing took roughly 28 hours.
I used graphite on smooth bristol paper.
size 9inches x 11inches.
I dedicate this to Matt because I am very much not ready for the death of my favorite doctor, especially on Christmas. Please share! i’m in need of some exposure. Thank you 🙂21 December 2013 at 06:44 #23188Anonymous @
@myawho – consider yourself exposed 😀
A lot of fantastic artwork on your deviantart page. My favourites are ‘Frodo Of The Shire’, ‘Aragorn’, ‘Stormtrooper’, ‘Matt Smith Portrait’, and ‘Dalek for President’ (I like Daleks, Daleks are cool 😉 )
@wolfweed – I must confess that I forgot to do the ‘tea’ on the model (which has since been rectified). It was done on Photoshop using the bevel/emboss filter with the highlight’s opacity set at 0%. The glowing eye was also done using PS. Love the Mittens, must get a pair and perhaps a matching scarf 🙂21 December 2013 at 10:25 #23192
@myawho – Great video – Great drawing!

@fatmaninabox — yes, Max is not what you’d call cheap. But still a kick-ass bit of kit.
And there are, ahem, other ways… (not that I’d advocate them in the slightest…..)21 December 2013 at 19:45 #23213Anonymous @

@wolfweed I had to remove the bmi stuff from your link to the X year itch pic. But frankly I’m sorry I did. I’m going to have nightmares 😀22 December 2013 at 16:41 #23234
I wonder – Could this often ‘shipped’ couple’s relationship be the reason Smith’s Dr accidentally married Marilyn Monroe?

My friends and I just made this Doctor Who fan video. We spent two months on it and worked hard to get it out in time for the Christmas Special. Let us know what you think 🙂 http://youtu.be/u5_PB0kn0c8

I’m appealing (no – really)
Have a scintilla of artistic merit? Know how to use a graphic manipulation package? Anytbody? We’ve had a request to change the front page image periodically and, as we are about to launch new retrospectives it may be fun to ask people to contribute images based on the stories we’re going to show. So to give people some time to think here are a couple of clear favourites if anyone wants to consider them:
1st Doctor – The Time Meddler
2nd Doctor – The Mind Robber
3, 4 and 5 have no clear winner, so we’ll recanvass opinion later.
6th Doctor – Vengeance on Varos
7th Doctor – Curse of Fenric.
Your help will avoid us having to use my own contributions. I mean, you wouldn’t want to stare at these for 4-5 weeks would you. 😉
So art, characters, cartoons, whatever you want to do. Over to you.10 January 2014 at 16:01 #24171Brewski @brewski
An insane (and now obsolete) timeline for the Impossible Girl.
Sorry, this theory was already shattered by TNotD. But I couldn’t resist posting it.
1 The First Doctor and his wife find themselves having to care for their granddaughter.
2 (What happened to their child is not part of this idea, but a good topic for another day)
3 The Doctor wants to name her Lily, but his wife adamantly refuses and finally agrees to “Susan” which means “Lily”.
4 The wife becomes aware that the Great Intelligence has plans to kidnap Susan. She can’t explain it, and the Doctor knows nothing of this. But she convinces him to steal a TARDIS and spirit Susan away (deliberately pointing him to one with a broken navigation circuit to make tracking them harder.)
5 The wife goes into hiding
6 At the onset of the Time War, the wife risks coming out of hiding to find Susan. She must protect her from the destruction of all Time Lords by hiding her with a Chameleon Watch.
7 Susan becomes “Clara” who feels she was “born behind the face of Big Ben”, which she would if he perspective was the Chameleon Watch face!
8 When(ever) Clara dies, regeneration occurs, but in a different way because of the Chameleon Watch. She re-forms as the same person in another time and place. The universe brings together all the right elements at the exact right place and time, like a leaf blowing off a tree at precisely the right moment.
9 When the Doctor’s wife came out of hiding, she reunited with the Doctor to help him fight the Time War. Their solution was that she would remain on Gallifrey while he applied the Time Lock. Only they knew the vocal key to the Lock: The Doctor’s Name.
10 When Rassilon attempts to circumvent the Time Lock, the Doctor’s wife attempts to send a message via Wilf. Later, the Doctor sees her and she is able to communicate wordlessly with him how to prevent the Time Lords from returning.
11 Later, the Doctor becomes aware that the Great Intelligence, who has pursued him several times, is actually after Clara and so discovers her secret. He restores her to being Susan. (Clara sometimes misplaced her Watch which she called her “mojo”.)
12 Susan immediately understands her mission: to free River Song from the Library by giving her one of her regenerations.
13 River regenerates into a form the Doctor knows now. But didn’t know when he first met her. After all, River’s future is the Doctor’s past. River goes on (or rather back) to be what she always was: the Doctor’s wife. The First Doctor. Susan’s Gran. (Whom Clara mentioned having lost.)
14 The First Doctor and his wife find themselves having to care for their granddaughter.
15 The Doctor wants to name her Lily, but his wife adamantly refuses and finally agrees to “Susan” because she really couldn’t stand the idea of her granddaughter being “Lily Pond”.12 January 2014 at 00:42 #24229Anonymous @
This doesn’t really fall into the category of fan creativity but it is creative and has an element of time travel (sort of).

A couple of pics of my latest CG Dalek. The New Paradigm Daleks are hated so much that a few members of the Project Dalek Forum (including Mechmaster) redesigned it and christened it the ‘True Paradigm Dalek’.
It’s now roughly the height a Dalek should be and it’s lost it’s ‘hunchback’. If the BBC were to replace the NPD’s with these guys, I’d be a happy bunny 🙂
I thought having an organic eye ‘humanised’ them too much so my version has gone back to the cold, lifeless blue light.15 January 2014 at 09:41 #24325
@fatmaninabox These look great, I’m glad you’ve lost the hump, that really did look awful in the show. I also love the shadow on the bottom picture. The only thing that looks a bit odd is the “neck” area i.e. it looks like if you press down the head, ketchup might be dispensed from the ray gun! 😛15 January 2014 at 09:46 #24327
Not exclusively DOctor Who but I thought it might be appreciated here!

After the hunchback, the biggest problem that my Dalek building buddies and I had with the NPDs was that they were so drastically out of proportion. Although the PDF redesign is a vast improvement, it still suffers from that problem. The skirt and fender are bigger than the New Series Dalek but the shoulders, neck and dome are smaller. And the blaster’s so big I’m surprised it doesn’t topple over due to the weight 😀
I’m working on the Peter Cushing movie version at the moment but if I get a chance I may make a few tweaks to get it looking less bottom heavy.16 January 2014 at 16:26 #24350
@phaseshift – I think your ‘retrospectives’ graphics contributions are great and should be used.
The more versions submitted by different people, the more the images can be swapped over the weeks.
Here’s a quick Fenric image I’ve done. I’m interested to see other peoples’ take on Fenric & the other stories…
@fatmaninabox – Nice nip & tuck on that ‘Cherry Coke’ Dalek…16 January 2014 at 17:08 #24351Anonymous @
I have designed a LEGO Dalek. I am now selling it on ebay if you would like to have a look.16 January 2014 at 18:58 #2435318 January 2014 at 10:20 #24368
