“There is waiting, there is pain, there is blood, but it is joyous all, for we are in the sorrows of a travailing woman, from this arbor is the place of the breaking forth of yes, the children of hell, but also the opportunity of our salvation.”
Let Your Minis Have a Religious Experience: Stained Glass - The Miniatures of Tomorrow Method.
Hey there true believers, today I’ve got the long promised tutorial on how to create your own stained glass for diorama & display. This method, creates a very true to life effect, that while not as fast as printing on transparencies, replicates both the texture and actual principle of stained glass. This means that it casts a colored light like stained glass, and has the same high gloss as glass proper.
This Gorgeous Stained Glass Dalek Is Just as Likely to Yell ‘Excommunicate’ as 'Exterminate’
by James Whitbrook
What happens when you cross a Dalek with a stained-glass window? You get the most weirdly beautiful looking killer pepperpot the world has ever seen.
This ridiculously ornate take on Doctor Who’s most famous monsters was actually made for the cover of a Big Finish Doctor Who radio drama re “Order of the Daleks,” in which Colin Baker’s Sixth Doctor is menaced by a particularly dogmatic Dalek, wrought out of iron and plated with religious-themed stained glass panels. And, apparently, it also has a trident instead of a plunger for good measure, which is metal as shit, quite literally.
When the script for “Order” came in, Big Finish director Jamie Anderson knew the weird new Dalek had to feature on the drama’s cover, but instead of getting an artist to simply draw the creature, he drafted in designer Chris Thompson to actually create the Dalek as a full CG model. Not the first time that the Daleks’ fevered rhetoric has been linked to religious overtones, but certainly the most literal (and most pretty, which is an odd description to give to a Dalek).
French painter in the naïve style Séraphine de Senlis (1864–1942) was inspired by her religious faith, stained-glass church windows and other religious art. The intensity of her images, both in colour and in replicative designs, are sometimes interpreted as a reflection of her own psyche, walking a tightrope between ecstasy and mental illness.
These are Will Graham’s glasses! I am dying. Hugh freaking Dancy wore these on his glorious head. There is still FAKE BLOOD on the frame!! Now they go in a case where I never touch them again. Probably.
