Find more of my pencil work on:
FACEBOOK :bulletblue: TWITTER

:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:



On a cold and dusty afternoon, I found a historic letter from my great-great-great grandmother. To my surprise I discovered that, on the back of the envelope, she had sketched a modern day looking figure whom she described as a 'time traveller' she had met...


(not really)


In other words:

Figure practice with David Tennant a.k.a. the Doctor as my model :thumbsup:

:dummy:

He's a fun guy to draw, but SO DIFFICULT.

To make it even more difficult I tried to draw a mini galaxy in the reflection on his sunglasses. (Approx 5mm + 7mm / 0.2" + 03" wide). lol. This drawing drove me nutty, so the more pleased I am with the result.


Apart from the face, this sketch was drawn with diagonal pencil strokes only.
Used mechanical pencils on A5 size Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook paper. Approx 4 hours.


Quite similar to my Dean sketch that I made about a year ago.



And even more similar to:




Used this stock image by ~frameofthoughts for the vintage background.


PS: You remember this one, *SheldonSands? :eyes:

Love the piece. The diagonal strokes definitely set it apart and I think it captures the Doctor very well.

Yea, whenever such a great character changes, the differences are usually seen as negative at first, so definitely need to give some time to get used to the changes before really evaluating. I had my doubts about David Tennant at first, but then he was just awesome.

Thanks for the tip on the confidential episodes. I'm watching it through Netflix streaming and you only get those w/ the DVDs - so I'm getting them as well now and they've been good.

One more to go - End of Time, Part II
