Cybermen Mk VIII – The Lee Sullivan Design
Artist Lee Sullivan has been working with the Cybermen for quite some time. He’s come a long way from his early Cyberman illustrations (age 7) ….
Making his mark along the way by providing art for Doctor Who Magazine…
And drawing the Cybermen for the Battles in Time comic strip which you can read here
You can see more of Lee Sullivan’s Doctor Who art on his own website here
His Mark VIII Cyber-creations appeared in the Radio Times 8th Doctor comic-strip Dreadnought – which you can read here. (Roughly) the same Mk 8 design later appeared in the 6th Doctor webcast of Real Time – which you can watch here. And the Mk 8 Cybermen – or a close relation – might have appeared in a comic strip featurig a future Doctor prior to the relaunch of the TV series in 2005. Sadly, it was never made…
The Mk VIII appeared in the Real Time webcast – and has also been given CGI graphic treatment…
