You may have noticed that I'm doing some Twelfth Doctor fanart because, well... it's... FUN. And shut up. I was literally jumping up and down with joy when I heard the announcement of Peter Capaldi as Twelve. (Yes, luckily no one saw this but everyone HEARD me scream with joy all over Facebook--for several days.)
As a geek and fangirl, Doctor Who and I go waaaaaay back. I was born the week the first episode of Doctor Who went on the air, so you can say we're both celebrating our 50th anniversary, ahem. (Yes, I just told you how old I am. Deal with it.) The first Doctor I consciously remember as a child was Jon Pertwee and his terrifying killer plastic chairs.  So no complaining about age issues and the Doctor or I will seriously go all Malcolm Tucker on your ass.

The current Doctor Who fanart I posted is in the sketchbook stages, with me presently working on them as finished illustration. (The one I call the "Planet Painting" will be, well... painted. In color. With gouache. So stayed tuned to this Batchannel.)

Also currently working on the last ten pages of Heaven and the Dead City, Chapter 3. Many, many tubes of grey gouache have met their demise this month.

Just remember: when in doubt, always reverse the polarity of the neutron flow. A handy tip.

Update: the inked version of Twelve Reviews Past Fashion Choices is now up for your perusal. (By inking, I mean I usually transfer the sketchbook drawing to a sheet of vellum bristol paper and use Pigma Micron ink pens, along with acrylic grey gouache, etc., for tones.)

All right: update. The finished "Twelve" painting is now up for your perusal. (The one with the weird double-ringed planet.) Instead of doing it completely in color as I had originally intended, I did it it as what I hoped was sort of a "retro" black and white illustration with only one accent color: TARDIS blue.

 I too was happy to find out that the new Doctor was a bit more mature (in Earth years) than previous incarnations. Kudos to Matt Smith for his very distinctive Eleven and keeping the popularity of Doctor Who growing. My first Doctor was Four and I have a picture with Tom Baker. I also have very warm and fuzzy feelings for Eight. I look forward to seeing how Peter interprets the Doctor as  I have only seen him as a character actor in other series.

I also really love Eight (and Paul McGann) and really wished he had more filmed stories. (He has a lot of great audio adventures, however). I was hoping they'd eventually show his regeneration into whom I presume to be John Hurt, the "Un-Doctor". I agree that matt Smith was wonderful as an old man in a young man's body. But I think Peter Capaldi will bring a lot of gravitas to the Midnight Hour. Nod

Thanks so much, fellow classic fan! :)<?xml:namespace prefix = da />Hug
  Tom Baker was probably my favorite of the classic Doctors because of his snarky sense of humor. (And well, there was K-9.)
But I do remember having a sort of crush on Jon Pertwee. (Well, I was a little kid. He fought monsters and wore a velvet smoking jacket. That was enough for me.)
And to this day I still have a horror of plastic chairs... Forget the Daleks-- the stupid melting plastic chair had me running behind the sofa. Waaaah!

This not being a direct response, it didn't show in my notifications.  Ooopsie!   :P

The Third Doctor was indeed a gentleman time traveller of the first order, even when he wasn't time traveling.

Oopsie on my part for not answering under "reply". D'oh.

And here I thought *I* was the classic fan.  Born in 73, the first Doctor I remember was Tom Baker during the Key to Time season (but he is not my favorite).  So refreshing to meet someone who gets it!  The best of the new fans I've met online, a film student from NYC, has devoured the classic series voraciously...but still loves Tennant best.  Feh.

Anyway, yes please more Twelfth Doctor art!
