Dr Who - The Silent by Kaduflyer Dr Who - The Silent by Kaduflyer
I grew up with Dr Who, it's part of my heritage as a British SF and fantasy nerd. If you would have told the little kid, that was me hiding behind the sofa, oh so long ago, that one day I'd be making monsters for Dr Who I'd never have believed you.
But for the past 12 months or so that's exactly what I've been doing. And at times, huddled on freezing cold sets up in Wales where the show is shot, I find it hard to wipe the big grin off my face or suppress the little giggles of joy as I realise just how damn lucky I am to do the job I do!

The design brief for these was a cross between grey aliens and Edvard Munch's The Scream painting. I absolutely hate grey aliens so there's more Munch here than ET.

The top photo's are of the sculpt. The middle photo's are of the painted masks. I actually made them quite pinkish as I wanted them to look soft and babyish. The open mouthed version you can see was used to create a digital morph of the creature's mouth's distorting as they used their psychic attack!
The bottom picture is a publicity shot from the show. They were eventually shot using extremely washed out colours, so all my subtle paint work got lost and in the end they looked closer to those damn Grey buggers after all!....curses!!!

What the heck is going on? I keep looking at the photo but when I look away I can't remember what it was. Hey what these marks on my arm?

I'm having similar problems…people keep telling me how much they love the silence and I'm like: "wha???…..I don't remember making them!!…." (and my arms covered in similar marks!!)
