Dr Who - David Tennant

As promised. =)

The tenth Doctor, in an image created from a lot of references. So you won't see this same image done by anyone else. I'm sure I could have made my life easier just drawing from the same old publicity photos, but where's the fun & originality in that?

I'm not actually as happy with this as I could be, but I had to have it finished by this morning, so it's as good as it's going to get. Trying to finish off drawings at 5am when you had 3 hours sleep the night before is apt to cause problems. That's why I have discouraged critique - I know the problems, and if you find one that I don't know about, it will only bug me, seeing as the next time I see this picture, it'll be behind glass, and I won't be able to fix anything. So I'd rather not know, if it's all the same to you. ;)

Time Taken: Probably around 20-30 hours. I lost track.
Materials: Quill 110gsm sketching paper, 0.5 mechanical pencil with #B lead, #8B solid graphite pencil, plastic, kneadable and electric erasers, tissues, blending stumps and cotton buds.
References: ~10
Size: A bit under A3, the same as Dr #9

This is the first drawing with the distinction of being watermarked with my logo as well as my name.

I hope you like it! Enjoy! =D

Around 20-30 hours (it's easy to keep track if I do something in a couple of days, but when it stretches to months, it gets a bit tricky to be really accurate. ;)) I'm not overly happy with it, but it's okay, and I'm glad you like it! Thanks for the :+fav: too!
