The Year Of Drawing Adventurously – Week 27: Robotic

Following the chart to 52 drawings this year.

As a big science fiction fan, I could have chosen any number of favorite robots (or androids) but I chose to draw a Dalek from Doctor Who.

For those of you unfamiliar with Doctor Who, I realize how silly that must seem. What’s so scary about a canister vacuum with a couple of plungers attached, right? Despite their rather ridiculous appearance,  only the Daleks threaten the very existence of the universe! Here is my mine:
