Heavenly Host by Marker-Mistress Heavenly Host by Marker-Mistress
I had a little bit of a hard time last night. It's been four years to the day since my dad passed away and it's been pretty hard to get my mind off it.
I tried though, and some weird way of going about it my robosenses kicked in and I drew a Host from the Doctor Who special Voyage of the Damned.
It's an angel...get it?

Anyway, made under an hour with mechanical pencils, erasers, paper towels on sketchbook paper.

I've never understood why the Hosts always say "Information" before a sentence. I'm not complaining; it really emphasizes their lack of human emotion.

"Information: you are all going to die." And I really loved the bit where David's trying to save his life with only one question.

I've never noticed before, but... the angels almost look like they could be a version of the phantom of the opera :O.

Yeah, I realize that has NOTHING to do with this drawing (which EFFING INCREDIBLE, by the way :D), but... I ust noticed that... FREAKY! In a REALLY ironic way...

It's wonderful stuff.
My art tends to hide until the last day of a deadline and after days of crying about how much I don't want to draw anymore.
After that, it's plain sailing.

Oh yeah, once procrastination mode kicks in you get the motivation and the zeal to see it through, then you can relax in peace knowing it's done lol

Holy host in heaven! I recognized what this was just by the thumbnail before I ever read the title! Cosmicdancer, you never cease to amaze me. Professional grade work here, ma'am!

When I saw that episode of Who the first time, I actually thought about you and wondered what you might think about them (the Heavenly Host sort of reminded me of the Voc).

Ahahhaha! Oh that's going in my databank for best start to a comment ever!

D'awwww I'm thrilled you think so! It looks so much better from a distance somehow, like it's real!

Awww That's sweet of you! They are what Vocs like D84 would end up looking like (I think) going to Voc-heaven :D Only sans the killing part...

I think sometimes being emotionally charged helps motivate pieces to completion. I think my dad would love this.

*HUG* Yeah, and I know he wouldn't want me dwelling on it, but it's hard not to. But I think it'll be ok as long as keep myself busy.

Thanks! It's amazing what a 9mm and 7mm mechanical pencil can do ;)
