Dalek Week - making history by ThePrinceOfParties Dalek Week - making history by ThePrinceOfParties
If you don't think one ex-crossdressing-Darwinist-airwoman and four random Austrian children, one of whom bears a striking resemblance to a pig, can draw a massive sidewalk chalk mural in a single day with evidently only one box of chalk, then YOU haven't been paying attention.
'Cos it's Deryn F:)ckin' Sharp.

Anywho, t'was concieved while watching Tangled! You know that part where she and Flynn venture into town and dance and play with the townspeople and Rapunzel lays down some mad chalk-drawing skillz with the kiddies like the born-to-be-leader she is? This is Deryn doing that. 'Cause she married Alek. Which would make history.

I admit I took some shortcuts through Photoshop with the cobblestones and overall it's a bit sloppier than I would've liked, but after I sneezed all over my desk--and this drawing included--whilst simultaneously trying to eat a goddamn cherry, I kind of lost the will to carry on.
It was hilarious and gross but also sad.

Deryn, Alek (c) Westerfeld

HAPPY FRIDAY OF DALEK WEEK, Y'ALL! I DON'T THINK I'LL MAKE IT THE LAST TWO DAYS D: IT'S GETTING HARDER!

Day 1: wtf
Day 2: such great heights
Day 3: crossover
Day 4: faith
Day 6: walking on air
Day 7: a place to belong

May I ask?:) Do you just work the outlines with a pencil and then color it with crayons? How do you get such a soft look, I'm jealous!:XD:

Usually yes! And most of the time I go over the lines in pencil again when I'm down colouring. I start with the lines very fair so that the colours don't smudge into them too much.

Adorable. I really like to think that this would happen, somehow, some where in their future. I love the bottom picture of him wiping the chalk off her cheek

Deryn was quite astounding, really, and entirely worth throwing away an empire for.

Wow really? That would sure be awesome, but I'm not sure how it'd work without them actually being emperor and empress. SCOTT WILL FIND A WAY! :dummy:

You're the first person who has really been able to capture Deryn as, like, a girl. You know - with long hair and everything. :salute: And, the mural is awesome. I want me one of them narwhal fabrications. :iconiwantitplz:

O.o so awesome, but, I've read Goliath. I will say no more incase you haven't because I don't want to spoil the ending. I wish it had ended like this though.

By the way, I love the fabricated narwhal thing! :D
