Chibi Dalek Thay by jinkies36 Chibi Dalek Thay by jinkies36
A chibi or 'super deformed' version of Dalek Thay. Drawn at the suggestion of :icon1010100100101:.

I was really worried about whether I could actually draw something with deformed proportions based on an ordinary source image. Then I realised that I usually do a lot of work to get the proportions right in my art, so I must be naturally inclined to deform everything I draw anyway ;)

The changes I made to the proportions were to increase the size of the 'bumper' up so it overlapped (and removed) an entire row of balls, increasing the length of the 'head' so it overlapped (and removed) the first 'rim', stretching the middle section somewhat, making the balls get larger towards the bottom, and increasing the size of the 'hands' and 'eye'.

This was actually supposed to be a quickie, but after drawing the lines roughly in one hour, it looked so good I spent a further 30 minutes tidying them up. The colouring then took three hours. Total time spent was therefore 4 and a half hours.

This was drawn at print resolution, the full size image is over 3600px high. I used a tablet PC. The lines were drawn with a fixed opacity, variable width brush and the colour was 'by eye' using the airbrush tool.

Hopefully the end result is suitably cute ...although I wouldn't recommend going in for a hug ;)

Cute. I don't think Daleks are supposed to be cute, but...

So exterminate me. Heck, I wouldn't mind.

Have you seen my Dalek Caan too? [link] He's much older and from before I'd developed by current style, but nonetheless he's by far my most popular deviation...

You made a Dalek look cute! HOW did you do that? Quite an achievement... Does it give hugs with its plunger rather than exterminate people?

Sereiously, I like this a lot. :nod:

Well I always put a lot of work into getting it right, usually with heavy use of the free select, move, scale and rotate on the sketch layer...

I have actually planned out how I'll draw all the members of the cult in different poses, but I think I might save some for later so I'm not just drawing daleks over and over :)

I like how you do them - I sorta suck at drawing daleks for reasons I don't know myself XD

They're a bit annoying to draw as they're all straight lines and geometic shapes, which you can't really get away with drawing in a sloppy or flowing way. I was much sloppier than normal with Dalek Thay and even that was a bit frustrating at the lines stage.

On the other hand colouring daleks is lots of fun, I like doing metallics :)

It's a chibi version of a Dalek the main alien monsters from the British science fiction series Doctor Who. The show started in 1963 (on the day JFK was assasinated). The Daleks have been in it since the 5th episode. The show has been broadcast on PBS stations since the 1970's and is currently shown on the Sci-Fi channel. It's still the most popular drama series in the UK and has won the Hugo award for the last 3 years. Wikipedia entries here [link] [link]
