The Doctor's Wife Poster

I was only expecting to have another sketchy drawing to show today but instead of come up with this rather dramatic picture.The above image started as my drawing of Idris but then exploded into what you see above. Once I'd finished drawing Idris I started playing around with the glowing aura which started bringing the image to life. Suddenly I found myself adding more elements and experimenting with the background swirls, adding the tardis, darkening areas, and erasing elements until I found I had created something which could easily be used as a final image. A lot of the above was in my concept but I still have ideas to bring in other elements and I do want the Doctor's face included. Really pleased with how this came out.

Doctor Smith

Been wanting to start this piece for a long time, a poster for 'The Doctor's Wife' episode written by Neil Gaiman. It's easily one of the best Doctor Who episodes ever as it explores the Doctor's relationship with the Tardis in a beautiful and very sad way.

Above is my first piece for the poster, showing Matt Smith's Doctor looking rather shocked and upset. Quite a tricky start but starting to get the likeness down now. This episode has a wonderful use of colour and lighting which make for perfect screengrab reference.

Cottage II

Made some adjustments on this. I think it's done now. Really pleased with it. Feeling inspired today to do more art so I shall crack on and hopefully have something else to post later.

A Cottage

A3 pencil.
Started working on this drawing for a friend. Haven't drawn anything like this in a long time so it's been fun working with line to create brick and stone textures. I've started working during my lunch breaks to actually get some art done. Hopefully I can keep this up and actually continue to post some new stuff here over the upcoming months.
