Doctor Who Playdough

In lab, we did things with playdough. It was awesome. I took the leftovers back with me, and made these because I'm completely unoriginal and can't think of anything myself.

A Top Trumps card for Pudsey, as seen in the Merlin in Needs. He's also got awesome stats.

Top Trumps Cards

A friend got me a pack of Merlin-themed Top Trumps cards from the UK. I thought that it could use a few extra cards...

Yes, I went through all the real cards and gave my fake ones stats that made sense (well, somewhat. I still don't understand how Percival is stronger than Kilgarrah, or why Sir Leon's leadership is so low.)

Also, I just want to say that I thought that the tree that simpleton!Arthur loved so much was wonderful.


A bottle of hemlock based on the one from the Merlin episode "Fires of Idirsholas."

More Lego Doctor Who

So, awhile ago I made a lego Tenth Doctor, which can be found here. I had been meaning to go back and make more Doctors, and yesterday afternoon I finally got a chance. So here arelego Ninth and Eleventh DoctorsCollapse )

American Gods Drawing

I was incredibly lucky this summer and got a chance to see Neil Gaiman speak at the 92nd Street Y. He was hilarious, as was Lev Grossman, and I am now insanely excited for the American Gods sequel. The best parts of the interview were when he spontaneously started talking about Doctor Who and tried to imitate other daleks' reactions to the red one (because apparently daleks can't see the color red), and when he answered the question that the friend I'd gone with asked.

Anyway, when asked about his inspiration for the first book, he said something which fascinated me. I don't remember the exact words, but it was something to the effect of: he used to get on the wrong airplane frequently when traveling, and then would get shepherded around from airport to airport, and one would always be closed or there wouldn't be any seats left, and he felt like a pea under a cup being shuffled by a god.

I'm not a particularly good artist, but I really wanted to draw that. This is the result.

As a point of interest, I had originally planned to show the whole god in the sky (and he would have looked remarkably like Dorium from the Doctor Who episode "A Good Man Goes to War"). Since I can't actually draw people or cloth that didn't happen, and I think I like it better like this anyway. Also, I know that the god's hand looks weird. Just pretend it's an alien or something.

Nordic Mythology

I've been a fan of Nordic mythology since I was a kid, so when I went to see "Thor" yesterday, I was kind of worried that it was going to completely ignore the legends. While the movie's Loki was malicious and power-hungry rather than a simple trickster, Sif's hair wasn't terribly pretty let alone blonde, and the plot was fairly standard, the music and special effects were more than enough to make up for the problems.

Anyway, I was inspired by the movie and a convenient tutorial on a paint.net forum to create this picture:

This is a Viking helmet and Mjolnir, Thor's Hammer. The helmet was created based on a tutorial from paint.net, as was the engraving on the hammer and the stone texture.

Random Abstract Pictures

I was playing around with paint.net and came up with a couple of things.

I thought that this looked like a bunch of cells under the microscope.
