September Competition - Doctor Who Original Art!

September has arrived and its time for a new competition! It couldn't be easier to enter, all you need to do is leave a comment about the prize and you'll be entered into the running. Any kind of comment counts but you have to make sure you think about it as you can only enter once, so make it funny, make it complimentary, make it a song, make it weird, make it anything you want but make your comment count.

This time we have some original ink art from the world of Doctor Who by Graeme Neil Reid.

This was done for fun back in 2002 and anybody who knows me knows I'm a big fan of Doctor Who. The idea was to take one of the original (as there was many versions) movie posters for the film Star Wars and do a parody poster for the Who story 'Remembrance of the Daleks' from 1988. The story has Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred as the Doctor and companion Ace battling those pesky pepperpots and just like the Eccleston story 'Dalek' from a few years ago this also had the great British public agog when the Daleks finally conquered the ability to go up and down stairs, yikes!

The prize is threefold this time. You'll own the original inked illustration which is on CS10 heavy art board and measures 45cm high by 39cm wide (if you click on the image to see it bigger you'll be able to spot where I cheated on the skirting of the Daleks by drawing it in Adobe Illustrator and printing it out to be stuck on the board, far too hard inking circles freehand you know!) and you'll receive an A3 print of the finished movie poster and (because I have two copies for some reason) you'll also get a copy of the 'Remembrance of the Daleks' DVD. (The DVD is for regions 2 & 4.)



Terms of entry: 1. Only one entry per person. 2. Comments must be left by the end of 30th September 2009 to be entered into the competition. 3. The contributors to Scotch Corner will judge the comments left and decide a winner with the contributor supplying the prize having the casting vote. 4. The winner will be announced on the website as soon as a decision has been reached. 5. If the winner does not have a contact email address available on their comment profile then it is the winners responsibility to contact Scotch Corner at scotchcorner@me.com and supply mailing address details. 6. If the winner does not contact us after one full month a new winner will be chosen. 7. All decisions are final. 8. If you are unhappy with any of these conditions please do not enter.

  2. Are the daleks more proficient at killing anyone plot related than stormtroopers? Plot armour is definitely highly superior to any other kind.

  5. What a perfect film comparison! A civil war Dalek story mixed with a story of an empire divided. Great image, great use of shadows. Love it.

    Hope to see more of your work!

  7. The brilliance of this image - like unlimited rice pudding.

  8. These pieces of art would look incredible framed on my wall.

  9. mmm...the shadows should have been generated by the big ole flashy light thing that the Doctor is generating. Looks a bit like the Stockbridge artwork and is quite effective in colour.

  14. When I saw this prize it bought a tear to my eye, Just thinking of how happy it would make our household gave me the power to get through the day. Your generosity demonstrates that despite war, famine, global corporate Armageddon, and impending destruction of all that we hold dear, there is hope. Hope and Love which can, if we work together get us through. If this artwork was on our wall, all the hungry orphans that I'd help if I won the lottery and had time would greatly benefit. Thankyou so much.

  15. Just a simple entry to say that's some cool stuff and I'd love to win.

  16. a lot of people get quite arty farty on here with chat of composition and shadows etc etc, but still no-one is in agreement with me that Sylvester McCoy was indeed an annoying wee baw bag that should have been clearly blasted into space by a couple of bucky wielding Daleks screeching in their familiar tone "beeeat it mcCoy ya wee fanny"

    ReplyDelete
  17. Maybe Dr Who would have been more successful against Daleks with a can opener instead of the screwdriver, hmm?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great picture,is the 7th Doctor putting his hand up,to ask to be the Doctor again?

  23. I'll swap you. Jar of my uncle Donnovan's ashes for this.
    Or how about unlimited rice pudding?

  24. My Uncle Declan would be so delighted if he were to come over to our house for tiffin and saw this picture on our wall, in an elegant frame, sympathetically lit. He once dreamt that he was Sylvester Mccoy and often reminds us of this fact.
    Incidentally my Uncle Declan is fond of rice pudding.

  41. My husband's a big fan of "Doctor Who" and his favorite of the seven classic Doctors is Sylvester McCoy. He also adores Sophie (but he married me, so that's okay). He's also built a Dalek and Davros reproduction. And a cyberman. And three (or is it four) full-sized TARDIS reproductions. He already has the DVD, but I'm sure he'd enjoy any of the other wonderful prizes.

  42. Appearing on BBC Wales Today, (July 20, 2004) responding to the question, "why do you think people love Doctor Who so much?"
    Russell T. Davies: "Because it's the best idea ever invented in the history of the world"
