Ducktor Who

Time for something a little bit different from cartoons. My brother asked me to decorate Beccles town council's duck for the annual duck race. As The new Doctor Who had just been announced, the idea of 'DucktorWho' came to mind.

 The idea was to decorate the duck with various iconic images from the series. I opted for the Tardis, a cyberman head, a darlek, and Tom Baker's scarf. I also intended to use question marks to fill up any leftover space.

 Here's the duck before painting began.

 The grey/silver for the cyberman's head has just been applied.

 The dark blue for the Tardis, and ligher blue for the darlek have now been applied, along with a white body. I decided to add the darlek design at the back, rather than along the base as originally intended.

 Here's the finished duck from the front. You can now see the Tom Baker scarf, along with the question mark motif.

 I forgot to take a photo from the back, but you can just about make out the darlek design.  Report to follow after the duck race!
