Yes, it's the first page of the newest Doctor Who strip by yours truly. This time I want to introduce Richie Brackin who commissioned me to collaborate on this story with him. He started with an idea and scenes with dialogue and we bashed together this story (actually, much like "The 10 Doctors" during its publication, it's still an organically developing process). You can probably guess the content just from this title page, but I won't be giving away any secrets just yet.
While I have some buffer built up on this one, I will be posting it once a week. But life is short and mine is busy, so bear with me. We'll get through it.
By the way: Sing along as you review the page: "BADAH - BAH! BADAH - BAH! BADAH-BADA-DUM, dedeedledee-dee, da da da beDEEDLEdee-dee, da da da, ba-da da DAA-DUM! Ba-da-dummm.... "Uploaded by Rich at 01:00 on 22 August 2011

The Dinosaur Table Project - 4
It's been a while since I've updated this little log. Last time I worked on the table I didn't add anything overly significant so it seemed a bit much to do an entry for a couple of small additions. Most of that session went into regluing. Turns out the spray adhesive I used didn't really stick very well and the mountain segments started to separate. I found that carpenter's glue works a lot better, so I had to redo portions of the land and mountains.
This weekend I finished the peaks over the Triassic period. My goal was to make a transition of mountains, high pointy peaks for the young mountains, lower peaks for the middle section and way over on the right are the low, rolling hilltops for the well aged mountains.
Here's a view from the POV of an Acrocanthosaurus standing in the forground in the Cretaceous period. In the distance you can see the high peaked Triassic mountains. I like the low-angle that gives a sense of scale.
Here's a slightly different view from behind the Tyrannosaurus.
Here's a view across the mountaintops with the approximate location of the Pteranodon aerie.
This is down in what I've started calling 'Sauropod Alley'. In the background you can see the cliff face. In the foreground is a new piece of scenery. During a visit to a pet shop, Hilary found some fantastic fish tank decorations that will enhance the table wonderfully! This is one of them, a clump of palm trees. I will have to do a bit of research before sticking it down, but it will probably wind up in the Cretaceous or Pliestocene era.
Here's a downshot looking into the small sea, home of the various marine reptiles.
Thanks for reading!
