"That which holds the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel,"

 So don't look away. Don't even blink. Weeping Angel 




 A little gift for :iconkirilee:
 When I saw these two stock images: Angel 12 & Angel 6
my inner Whovian did somersaults and I had to be the first to make her into a weeping angel. 

 To get me in the mood, I watched The God Complex while I was working on this, which I somehow skipped when I was binge watching Doctor Who a few months ago. And it had weeping angles in it! I was so pleased! I'm also convinced that episode was inspired by The Shining.

This one was tricky, as I've never turned anyone to stone before, but the blur effect hides most of the mistakes. Phew!

There is so much action in this picture, awesome job :)
The shatter over her head almost looks like the angellike ring, which floats often over the head of angels :)

Thank you! I'm glad someone noticed that! A halo affect was what I'd been going for.

Don't Blink. Still haven't been that freaked out since I first watched that with any other TV show -ever.

That's my favorite too. One of the best episodes, in my opinion.
