Genesis of the Daleks by PaulHanley Genesis of the Daleks by PaulHanley
With apologies to Michelangelo. :D

Something different- hopefully no one's come up with this (I think) obvious idea already. :)

So Davros created the Daleks in his own image, and Davros said unto the Daleks, "EXTERMINATE!"

That said, brilliant work, right down to the gas mask, land mines, and giant clams.

Actually, my most-stolen work did have a copyright notice right on it. I expect it took said art theives a good five or six minutes to brush over it. I often don't even bother now b/c it just mars a nice piece of artwork. :shrug:

That's what I mean when I say "brushed out" it was watermarked right into the pic. Unless you're willing to use a watermark/low resolution that's so severe it ruins any enjoyment of the work at all, there isn't much stopping a thief with remedial skill and the Clone Stamp/ Healing Brush features from Photoshop.

I think it's a safe assumption that Daleks didn't make this. If for no other reason than it's a bitch to hold a paintbrush with a toilet plunger. ;)

What a contrast with the original where all the figures are very rigid and don't flow organically. Of course, that's totally what you were shooting for! Great job! One of the best DW art concepts I've seen :D
Reply
:iconpaulhanley:
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Professional
Exactly- ya can't give much "flow" to a Dalek (unless maybe if you're Lee Sullivan- somehow that guy can draw Daleks w/ more personality than any other artist). I thought about giving Davros a little more flexibility a la Molloy or Bleach's versions so that I could better emulate God's pose from the original, but ultimately I decided it'd be funnier if it stayed true to the completely stiff and paralyzed Wisher version. :D

Unfortunately, I can't sell it, as I'm sure BBC Worlwide's anti-piracy unit would take a dim view of that. :( Still, if they ever want to buy the rights from me... ;)
