"Everybody lives, Rose! Just this once — everybody lives!"
"Rose, before I go, I just want to tell you, you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And d'you know what? So was I."
Another Doctor Who
art commission from Big Chief Studios
! Portrait of the Ninth Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston - it's meant to be a dually melancholy/hopeful piece, as it was inspired by both the triumphant scene in The Doctor Dances
and his bittersweet regeneration scene at the end of the season. (I think the nanogenes really resembles the golden light of regeneration? Maybe it's intentional, as they both cause change/revival? These were my thoughts...) Part of my Doctor Who poster series
This painting took even MORE hours and tears than my Tenth Doctor painting, which I didn't think was actually possible... I'm sorry, I have to talk about this. I was basically crying to everyone I knew, I was struggling with the likeness and the pose and just EVERYTHING, think I worked on this on-and-off for nearly four months. OTL I had to repaint the hands so many times; in the end, I just set up lights and had my poor boyfriend (who had to listen all the crying) do the same pose and took my own reference photos... Aaanyway. Painted in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Cintiq tablet.
EDIT 4/29/15: Repainted parts of the background and fixed some details!
