21 cents' worth - Doctor Who by Cataclysm-X 21 cents' worth - Doctor Who by Cataclysm-X
THIS GOT FEATURED ON THE OFFICIAL DOCTOR WHO TUMBLR OMG so exciting!
You can find it hereeee

:eager: thank you, whoever posted it there!

----------

2 mini-miniature portraits of Doctor Ten & Eleven of the famous Doctor Who TV-series.

I double-challenged myself this time by drawing 2 portraits twice as small as the Winchesters!



In other words, each head required:

8mm x 10mm / 0.3" x 0.4"



This was inspired by =griffsnuff's Tiny portrait, while she was inspired by my Winchesters. So... I guess that means I'm indirectly inspired by myself... somehow...in some way?! :dummy:



In fact, these portraits are so small, that I had to use a magnifying glass during the drawing process, which was exhausting.

When I wanted to draw shimmering in Eleven's (Matt Smith) left eye, I used an 0.1mm needle. I dipped the tip of the needle in white gel liquid and carefully placed it in the eye.
After several tries I finally managed to place it on the right spot. And there you have it: eye shimmering probably no-one would even notice. :meow:



Whenever I made a mistake, I couldn't fix it without erasing 1/4th of the drawing. I constantly had to start over and over and over again until I was finally done after spending approx 15 hours on drawing those 2 little fellas.


In summary, I used:
- sketchbook paper
- tortillions for shading
- 0.5mm mechanical pencils for drawing
- magnifying glass
- needle & white gel
- kneaded eraser
- steady hand
- headaches D:



I will get a bigger miniature portrait of David Tennant soon. I found *THE* perfect picture to draw. :plotting:


Cheers :heart:
