FAQ: A Journal of Impossible ThingsI keep getting the same questions from both Doctor Who fans and those who have no idea what's going on, so I thought I'd write a journal entry about this project. It's a bit silly to write a separate FAQ section for this, but I really need a place to link back to whenever I'm asked something about this series of drawings.FAQ: A Journal of Impossible Things4 years ago in Personal More Like This
WHAT'S A JOURNAL OF IMPOSSIBLE THINGS?
It's a dream journal featured in the Doctor Who episodes Human Nature (3x08) and The Family of Blood (3x09). In this two-parter, the Doctor rewrote his biology and became human in order to hide from the Family of Blood. The Doctor's human persona John Smith kept a journal where he wrote down and drew things he saw in his dreams, which were actually memories of his adventures as the Doctor.
The original prop journal was created by artist Kellyanne Walker and the text was provided by Paul Cornell.
SO WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?
My aim is to draw my own version of the Journal. I intend to draw all
Classic Who for "New Series only" fansI got this question from my buddy Robert on Facebook yesterday:Classic Who for "New Series only" fans2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Any suggestions for a guy who is a diehard fan of the new series but feels overwhelmed by the idea of going back to a show of 20 plus years of episodes? I'm afraid I'll either not like them because my basis of comparison is a show made during a time when TV production values are the highest they've ever been, or, I'll love them and lock myself in a room until I've absorbed the show(what still exists) like I did with the new series (that was only 3 seasons in at the time)."
It echoed comments I've gotten from people here. So here's my answer to him, slightly edited and expanded:
Short answer: THE BRAIN OF MORBIUS; GENESIS OF THE DALEKS; THE SEEDS OF DOOM; THE TALONS OF WENG-CHIANG; CITY OF DEATH; EARTHSHOCK; THE CAVES OF ANDROZANI; REVELATION OF THE DALEKS; INFERNO (in that order) If ya wanna just dip your toe in the water, try those nine. I REALLY recommend starting with something like THE BRAIN OF M
My Little Whoniverse Master ListThis is an index of all the Doctor Who and related characters that I have either drawn or am planning to draw. Most, if not all of them are reference sheets. As you may have noticed, I'm trying to ponify as much of Doctor Who as I can. If any of these links are broken, please let me know.My Little Whoniverse Master List2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I DO NOT TAKE REQUESTS. Any requests will be ignored. If you have any questions, here's my FAQ.
For those of you who haven't read the FAQ- I'm not going to ponify EVERY character that's ever been on Doctor Who. I have have to draw the line somewhere for my own sanity.
I've tried to group them into logical categories. Characters I'm unfamiliar with are probably in the wrong ones.

You must be following me to enter, I will check.
You must favorite or share this journal as a 'i am at the very least planning on participating!'
This contest ends January 15th, 2014. I will be the sole judge unless for some crazy reason this becomes larger of a project than i expect.

This is why the Doctor is RealThis is something that actually happened some time back, but I didn't really write it down or anything. Lately though, I was thinking about it, and I wanted to share it with my friends here.This is why the Doctor is Real1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To give a little background, everyone in my family watches (and loves) Doctor Who. I have a very young sister who has only gotten to see a handful of episodes of the new series because the rest would scare her, but she still was desperate to see more of the Doctor, so we started watching the classic episodes together. She's our little Whovian. She loves all the Doctors, especially Eleven and Four, and she said Sarah Jane is her hero because 'she must be, like, the bravest person EVER and I want to be brave like her.'
I guess that's why I wasn't sure what to tell her when one day she walked up to me, a serious expression on her little face, and asked 'Sarah, is the Doctor real?'
I was stunned. I thought she understood it was just a show. She's never even believed
The Nature of A TARDISNOTE: After answering a fellow Devianart member with this statement, I felt that in a rare moment of clarity, I was able to finally ARTICULATE what my belief is on what the exact nature and workings are of the TARDIS is, and just had to share this with all of you. Comments and responses are welcome, but my view on this subject is now pretty much set in stone, and will remain unchanged on this subject. The following text is fairly lengthy, but breaks down the nature of the TT Capsule in simple terms without getting too heavy into Quantum Physics, and hopefully is easily understandable to any fan of the show. Please enjoy the read, and know that this is the basis for the work I am doing to try to convey these concepts in art format for the TARDIS: Type 40 TT Capsule, Mark III Technical Manual of which I have recently uploaded art for.

TARDIS Levels DescriptionThink of the TARDIS that looks like a molecule model, or Atom. It's rings with Domes all circling around the central engine, and eye of harmony. As with the Prometheus planetary map concept from the movie, whereby the 3D graphic shows orbital paths, and planets rotating. In the TARDIS, these paths would represent the corridors, which can move and spin to connect with different sections around an orbit relative to the main section. each room is either connected to the corridor, or separately floating in this limbo until needed. The TARDIS can create more rooms, and attach them to the corridors at will, or delete a room, converting the matter (a flux state of matter) into energy and feed it directly back into the main engines. These rings and rooms each represent a specific floor. as the TARDIS grows in scale, new rings are formed spiraling out to the next floor and rings surrounding the previous floor and rings, and central engines. Think of the TARDIS to use the analogy coined by ShrekTARDIS Levels Description3 months ago in Personal More Like This

Tennant was the 10th Doctor and Piper played his on-screen companion Rose Tyler in the BBC One show.
Filming on the show, which will also star John Hurt, will start next week.
Tennant's successor, Matt Smith - also in the special with his new assistant played by Jenna-Louise Coleman - says fans "will not be disappointed" by the 3D show, due to air on 23 November.
Tennant and Piper have long been rumoured to be making a return for the special, which is being written by the show's executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat.
In January, Piper, appearing on the Graham Norton show, denied she would be appearing.
"I wasn't asked, no," she said.
"I think Matt Smith may have said, in passing or in jest, it would be nice.

I'm putting these down in the order they are usually asked, not in the order I think they should be asked.
Q: How much money can I make?
A: I make a good living for a single person in the Western USA selling in the DAZ market. I also sell at Renderosity, but I would describe that as a "hobby" or "bonus" income; it would be hard to do without it, but it's not what pays the rent every month, either. For the most part you will make back according to the time you put in. Only a few top artists get into six figures in American dollars in our market, and they are the biggest names who sell the biggest products.
Q: Can I do it in my spare time?
A: Not if you want to make a living. We do have hobbyist artists at DAZ3D, for whom this is a second
Morph Transfer Options Added to DS 462That's DAZ Studio 4.6.2, the latest version as of this writing.Morph Transfer Options Added to DS 4625 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you transfer morphs with Transfer Utility, you might previously have noticed that you have no option to only transfer SOME morphs. This can particularly be annoying with Genesis morphs, where you end up transferring hundreds and then have to sort out and save to library just the one you want.
Well, the newest version of DAZ Studio has an additional feature to help with this.
In the Parameters tab, when you've found the dial for a particular morph, right-click on it. One of your options is "Favorites." Hover over that and you can choose "Add Selected Properties to Favorites."
On most items, all morphs are not favorited by default, including Genesis. Mark just the morph or morphs you want to transfer as favorites in the manner described.
Now when you start Transfer Utility, uncheck everything but the "Morph Targets" option. You need to have the "Show Options" button checked to expand that par
