A Cosmos Without Doctor/Master Scarcely Bears Thinking About
Suddenly, Shalka. 
7th-Jul-2010 10:47 pm

Nine out of ten people know of my abiding love for Shalka - and really, there is so much to love. Here is some of that love, in a form all people with eyes can enjoy.


First, an illustration for Bagheera's Unsafe, Insane, Consensual  , which is a fine thing, and which I probably should have read more closely before illustrating because the Doctor is, unfortunately, wearing too many clothes here.

So that's a realistic rendering of a cartoon based on real people. Expect a mysterious bearded man in a white robe to come along with the date-rape cocktails any second now.

And another thing, which is quite an old thing, hence its tepid qualities.

Oh, very cool. The cartoon is hilarious. You see, Doctor? The Master has his reasons for wanting to top all the time. People might die if he doesn't get his way!

Well, people die when he doesn't get his way about what cereal they should have; if he doesn't get to top they might die.

The rendering is gorgeous, but the cartoon gave me the giggles. It's the "ding" at the end of all the "bwoop"s that really makes it.

Or perhaps I'm just easily amused. I've been informed (repeatedly) that that is the case...

No, dings are always funny. AlternaNine probably calibrated every function on the panel to go 'ding' whenever anything happens. A
lien invasion? Ding. Kettle's boiled? Ding. Some dust's moved three inches from where it was yesterday? Ding.

Shalka is gorgeous! I bet that will have made zero's day, Shalka rep that she is :D

Wow, the illustration is really well done and beautiful. The cartoon will probably amuse me for the rest of the night, so thanks muchly for that :)

Just try not to remember it in public. I hear they put you in a special room if you start giggling on street corners.
8th-Jul-2010 07:22 am (UTC)
excellent picture - and i'm glad you didn't quite remember what happened, because the doctors' waistcoat and shirt and silly necktie are all excellent - as it the way the master's hair is slightly mussed at the back, bless.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; you know there's something very wrong when the Master's personal grooming is not up to standard.

The cartoon COMPLETELY cracked me up--the 'dear' at the end is somehow just too perfect for words. And the illustration is GUH-tastic.
9th-Jul-2010 09:27 am (UTC)
I may have briefly given in to my secret belief that the Shalka boys are literally an old married couple. I take nothing back!

The Doctor's answering machine message is a classic case of "no possible heterosexual explanation."

Woooow. This is amazing and hot. Especially hot. You're incredibly good at likenesses and difficult poses and expressions and clothes (I also don't mind them being there at all, because it's sexier with clothes on). I love what you did with Shalka!Master, too, because he looks a bit like Ainley and a bit like the War Chief and a bit like the animation, and that's a great mix. I think from now on when I visualize Shalka!Master, he'll look at lot like this.

As for the comic - love the Master's naked feet <3

Cartoon Master looks like the lovechild of Ainley and Jacobi with the War Chief doing his hair, which was...interesting to try to draw.
Sexier with clothes...on...you say? What fresh madness is this.

Bare Masterfeet do not get the attention they deserve, this is a problem that requires immediate rectification.

Oh my god that illustration is gorgeous. There might be too many clothes, but they're really nice clothes.
12th-Jul-2010 02:07 pm (UTC)
Ok, so, I didn't say? Because I fail comments? (You will have noticed it by now. You've not mentioned it, but that's because you are a nice, polite, well brought up young lady. Or else you're going to have your Auton double kill me in my sleep. Perhaps both! It might fold the blankets and leave a mint on the pillow after it's done disposing of my mangled corpse! I am sure that would leave some comfort in my parent's weeping souls!)

ANYWAY. That comic is gorgeous and funny and delightfully entertaining? And I kind of can't ... stop staring at their legs? Now that I've started? Damn you. But. But. But. That illustration. God Ana. The Master's mouth/ And that little bit of mussed hair. Just .... wow. I want to swear quite a lot but I feel it may not be the Time or Place. That illustration is ... it is the most perfect thing you have ever done. I am in love with it, a bit. Just. Wow. I kind of want to make out with my computer screen. I AM NOT BECAUSE I HAVE DIGNITIES ANA. And more importantly it would mean I'd have to not look at the picture for a bit, and that hurts my soul. Also I suspect my computer of static, and that would not be nice on my tongue.

So anyway. I think the lesson you can take from this is that your art promotes objectophilia and it is either time to pack up your easel and go home or just go with it and see just how far you can take this strange new power. The choice, as ever my dear, is yours.
12th-Jul-2010 06:22 pm (UTC)
My Auton double, because it is a polite well brought-up Auton double, would offer you a beverage of your choice and a firm handshake before it skins you alive.

YOU HAVE DIGNITIES? HOW MANY? CAN I HAVE SOME? Ah, now the world will see the sensual sensual potential of RoboMaster. Or RoboMaster's mouth, anyway.
Isn't Shalka!Master an object anyway? That's double objectophilia, Alex, I think you have to do a penance for that.

Then I shall sling my knapsack on my back and go forth into the land of red leather.

Why did I miss all the awesome Shalka art? Why? *cries* But now that I found it I will save it to my laptop and print it out and stare at it for hours...maybe it was better when I missed it. Or not. Wonderfully done anyway^^!

Hello there,

I recorded a podfic version of Unsafe, Insane, Consensual this afternoon. I completely blame you for that. I was clicking all the lovely tags and came across this illustration which I missed, and it is so completely gorgeous. Just, so fantastic, I have no words. It inspired me to run off, reread the fic seventeen times, and then record. I haven't edited yet, but I hope to get it done soon.

Would I be able to make a cover for a podbook out of this image? I'll credit and link, of course, and possibly drool over it a little more. I'll try to not bastardise it, just add the title/author etc.

*drools more*

By all means! Can't wait to hear it.
12th-Jan-2011 01:32 pm (UTC)
Awesomesauce! Thank you. It'll be up really soon.

13th-Jan-2011 10:42 pm (UTC)
I made podfic! The artwork is so very lovely. I want to pet it or something. Thanks.
15th-Jan-2011 08:10 am (UTC)
Hurrah! This is me, grabbing that, and listening to it with my ears.
14th-Jan-2011 05:15 am (UTC)
I'm a bit late to this party, but I came here via the podfic and just wanted to say how utterly lovely the illustration is. Their expressions are perfect.
15th-Jan-2011 08:09 am (UTC)
Ta! It's one of my favourites, which is probably a sign I should draw more Shalka, always.
