The Turn of the Universe

"He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And... he's wonderful." 

I was commissioned by Big Chief Studios to do some more Doctor Who art! This is a portrait of the Tenth Doctor as played by David Tennant, and is a part of my official Doctor Who poster series. I really wanted to continue my ongoing theme of the Doctor + wonder, which began with "The Roar of Our Stars" piece I did last year.

This painting took many many hours (and tears) and many reference images... total painting time... I lost count... but I finished it sometime in August 2013. Painted in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Cintiq tablet. Reblog on Tumblr! Will be posting Nine and a special 50th Anniversary painting shortly too! Thank you BCS & BBC for this awesome project!

Totally stunning! Are you doing the earlier Doctors? I hope so. If you are, I can hardly wait to see your Eighth (my fave) and Fifth (my joint second fave with the Tenth)!

I still have the feelings this drawing gave me when I first looked at it in 2013

My dad saw this and said it was 'frivolous' and that 'fanart' is not 'art', just a term used by people who draw unoriginal things to justify themselves.
