Character: The Doctor, Đ by BBC, Steven Moffat, Sydney Newman
I stole your childhood and now I've led you by the hand to your death. But the worst thing is I knew. I knew this would happen. This is what always happens. Forget your faith in me. I took you with me because I was vain. Because I wanted to be adored. Look at you, glorious Pond. The Girl Who Waited for me. I'm not a hero. I really am just a madman in a box. And it's time we saw each other as we really are. Amy Williams. It's time to stop waiting. - The God Complex; 6/11
Hello! So here is a new coffee and coloured pencil portrait, this time itīs Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who. The digital post-progressing of these images (and especially this one) is very difficult, at least for me. Had to play around with loads of settings for several hours to get it halfway decent without loosing all similarities with the original drawing. I hope that payed off and it looks at least quiet right to you this way? Would be very nice if you could tell me
Actually I planned this portrait series with the Tenth Doctor at first and actually started that portrait about a week ago, but couldnīt get around to finish it yet, so I just drew this one instead... Uhm yeah actually this one is from the future as I would never make such illogical things as drawing Eleven first and later on Ten and Nine so those will be finished in the near future as well (of course a future before the future Iīm in at the moment, but ahead of the point in time where you readers / watchers are right now*whirling around causing confusion*) okay, never mind me, itīs too late... Just look at the drawing, fav it if you like it and leave a comment, okay?
I hope you enjoy it, I always appreciate some feedback
Using nothing more than colored pencils and coffee, I found that the most significant thing in this piece was that it was done in traditional art. I would have thought that this was of the digital media if I hadn't read further. The color pallet you have chosen for this has turned out quite well, for it has a rather aged look, yet it looks very crisp and fresh all the same.
If I was to suggest anything, it would be to add darker tones towards some of the shadowing, such as near the coat and possibly in the texture of the hair. This is just my opinion, and I feel as though this illustration came out nicely done and that it would look just fine without adding such darker shadows.
Not only do you capture the look of the character, but the textures on this piece is quite astounding. I really do fancy the color tones; a deep shaded blue and the espresso come together very well. It's almost as if it is hinted at the Doctor Who franchise, and that even though it is a very old series, given the tones of the coffee (giving it that vintage look), it is all still so very fresh as it lives on with that definite, royal blue tone.
Anyhow, great job on this piece and I do think it looks very good. Given thirteen hours of dedication, the outcome was phenomenal. Well done~
