Decaying Orbit by Doktor A

Every morning I open up Gmail curious to see what toy news I will find. Yesterday morning brought one of the coolest customs I've seen in quite awhile. Doktor A's been working on this custom qee called Decaying Orbit for 6 months on and off and the time and care really shows through.  Dok's interest in the extraterrestrial got him thinking "..about all those test animals which were launched into space in the 1950's... Did any of them come back? Or are there lots of little dog and monkey skeletons orbiting the earth forever..."  From that inspiration comes this ace custom which is so rich in design and is executed so well that I just keep staring at it.  I have this urge to lick it. Eye candy, no doubt. Sometimes it seems kinda unfair to talk about individual elements as if that lessens the overall impact of the piece.  So I'll just say that the rust-patina effect is really special as is the use of accessories especially the helmet.   Dok's recent Qees  amaze me because it's as if a superbly drawn comic character has walked right off the page into full 3d Qee reality.  Ok, I'll shut up now.  Enjoy!

Andrew Bell is a cool cat and VP is the best news site around. I would love to get a set of prints because there are creatures always in my head even with my eyes open. We all have creatures in our heads.:)
