As some of you may know I've worked on and off for the past few years on Dr Who, designing and creating some of the fabulous alien characters with Millennium FX, the talented folk responsible for the series' prosthetics and creature effects. We try very hard to keep any new creatures or characters out of the public eye but sometimes (largely due to the intense interest shown by the shows' dedicated fans) it's just impossible! Yesterday (18th March) within hours of finishing filming the latest episode in a breezy Cardiff park images of the newest creature appeared on the internet. I'm not going to provide links here as I feel I'm still bound by the NDA (non disclosure agreement) I sign for each season but a simple Google search, for those of you interested in spoilers, will find you eyeball to eyestalk with the newest addition to the Dr Who menagerie. Enjoy!

Once the show has aired I will post my own pics of the beastie, of whom I'm very proud!!

During my brief flirtation with Facebook I actually felt my IQ begin to slip a few points...a more pointless and puerile waste of time I cannot imagine. On top of that my address book was hacked and dumb and random emails were sent to almost everyone on it..including my bank, solicitors, clients etc. I eventually got a mail from AOL threatening to close my account unless the emails stopped. I have deleted my FB account and will never return...I'd appreciate it if no 'fan pages' appear.

So long as it involves gratuitous female nudity, free love and hard drugs then a cult is just fine....oh yeah, and I wanna be called The Great Ahzuzu!

Your stuff is creepy as hell and will probably put me to sleep in tears.
I like it.

Maybe you could look at the less creepy stuff just before bedtime?
No.  Night time is best for these sorts of things :c

True...can't argue with that!
Hi Dave I'm trying to brush up on my airbrushing skill's I have the single action Paasche kit , what compressor would you recommend. For the uninitiated should I just start of with simple patterns and colour schemes IE Animal prints and textures ??

Hiya Billy
There's a wide range of very good compressors out there...and also some real rubbish. The best thing is to buy the very best you can afford, in other words don't buy cheap. I use an Iwata Professional studio model which will set you back 150 but you can get some nice reliable ones for 60 to 70...I don't know any brand names apart from Iwata and Sparmax...these are the only 2 I've had in the last 20 years, so don't have much expertise in other makes.

As for where to start? Well with a single action you wont be able to do much more than broad, base work. You really need a double action brush to achieve good results. Again if you are going to buy a double action brush don't go cheap, buy the best you can afford.

With either a single or double acton the trick is just to play around with it...practise, practise, practise (like everything) until you feel confident and comfortable. Many people think airbrushes are some kind of magic wand that you kinda wave around and achieve wonderful results. But they are a tool that requires LOTS of get busy and have fun!
Thanks for the advice I've ordered the Iwata Studio Sprint Jet Compressor,for 178,also ordered 0.2mm 7cc Cup Dual Act Gravity Feed Airbrush Kit.
That was only 16 so may need to invest in a higher quality kit,if it turns out to be  a bit crap.
 What kind of acrylic paints would you recommend ?.

I've just started the Dick Smith's Advanced Professional Make Up course so I may have a few question's and queries for you,
in the near distant future when I may run in to some problem regards Billy..
