this was one of the artworks I rather hurredly put together for the Doctor Who Convention in LA this past weekend -- it got lots of love, I sold all of my prints of it, and even had the matted big version sold at auction for much more than I was expecting. Pretty good for drawn the day before, eh? Also, as a spoof of a da vinci drawing, if you scratch off all the pigment it has 'this is a fake' underneath.
Can anyone who likes this go Thumbs Up it on face book here: [link] so I can win a Doctor Who Series 5 DVD boxset?
Comments seem to have run their course, so I'm shutting them down. Many thanks to all of you who commented (and stayed on topic)!

What it says on the tin -- this is the "B Cover" (the second cover -- the "A Cover" is by Paul Grist) to the ninth issue of IDW Publishing's Doctor Who comic book series.
DOCTOR WHO #9
Written by Tony Lee, art by Blair Shedd, covers by Paul Grist and Shedd.
"Don't Step On The Grass" Part 1 (of 4): When the Doctor is called back to modern-day London by Martha Jones and U.N.I.T., the last thing he expects are the Enochian Angels of Elizabethan magician John Dee, the secret underground library of Greenwich Park, and an army of angry living trees!
While *CharlieKirchoff is the colorist on the interior pages, from lines to colors, this cover was done by me (I wanted to have at least one thing I did all by my lonesome ).
This issue (and my entire four-issue arc) is collected in "Doctor Who, Vol. 2: Tesseract" available at comic shops and bookstores everywhere, and internationally, and you can now even pick them up digitally via iTunes and Comixology.
Many thanks to `IanStruckhoff for suggesting this as a Daily Deviation, and a thank you to `majnouna for featuring it.
This is my second DD, my first being The Ten Doctors. I feel very honored that not only has Doctor Who brought me my first mainstream comic book gig, but also so many awesome new viewers on dA.
I apologize ahead of time if I can't thank everyone for every fav, because I know how this can pile up rather quickly, so I'll say it right here; thanks for looking, thanks greatly for faving, and thanks very much for watching.
Oh Doctor Who. Words cannot express how hopelessly addicted me and my roomie are to this show. Pictured here is yours truly and my roommate Jink . She got me into Doctor Who and more specifically the clever and sexy David Tennant. I'm not going to explain the joke because it will only make sense to those familiar with Doctor Who (3rd season specifically), but keep in mind that all this dialogue is canon.
Doctor x Master secret OTP.

PS: Oh yeah. It's titled "Self Indulgence" because I made a bunch of (almost) true comics that revolve around myself (and sometimes Jink). Jink wants me to turn these into an informal webcomic. She would make some alongside me and we would probably post them on a different account. What do you think, oh citizens of deviantART?
"Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars", July, 2009. Digital drawing in Photoshop.
UPDATE: On November 19th, 2009, I sent current Doctor Who composer Murray Gold a link to this image via Twitter, and he said it was "very cool," so it can't be all bad, right?
Note: Heard in buzzings around the intertubes that this is apparently a cover for a Waters of Mars adaptation comic. IT IS NOT. This is nothing more than a piece of practice art from me. IDW, the stateside publisher of Doctor Who comic books doesn't adapt episodes, and has no plans to adapt WoM, and Doctor Who Magazine in the UK doesn't do adaptations either (they have plenty of original material). Okay? Okay.
Need to keep in practice, so here's a Tenth Doctor piece in anticipation of the upcoming (November) Doctor Who special, "The Waters of Mars."
