The finished version of the sketchbook drawing. I was originally going to do the whole thing in color, and then opted for just one accent color: TARDIS blue. This is done in acrylic gouache with black ink on bristol paper.
Because I don’t know what he’ll be wearing, I kept it simple for now: long coat and a scarf. Everything is always more dramatic with clothes that can billow…
Peter Capaldi is going to be an AMAZING Doctor.
I’ve also always wanted to do a picture of a weird double-ringed planet, so here it is. (Apparently it really is plausible if a moon has an erratic orbit and is breaking up. Anyway, when did I ever let the laws of physics prevent me from drawing anything…?)
Oh crap, spoiler! I didn't know how the next doctor is going to look like!
But I like your art. *looks in the rest of your gallery*
But I see him dressed like a sort of stylish, older Bowie, with a little bit of an aviator/explorer look about him.
The strange thing I noticed only after the fact was that there's a Roman numeral 12 in this picture! (XII) The planet's rings make 'X' and the shape the Doctor and the sonic screwdriver make are the 'II'. Purely an accident that I only noticed after a glass of wine one night. "Heyyyy... there's a XII in there..." <?xml:namespace prefix = da />
