I am UNSPEAKABLY proud of this one. 8D
If you don't mind my saying so.

Hours and hours in Photoshop, original pencils by Jeremy Dale and inks and colours by me.

Lighting is FUN! And hey, comments and criticism on the technical elements would make me happy inside.

Added 'Doctor Who' in the title to help out DeviantART's crappy search engine system. Hopefully.

Original pencils:


Colourable inks:

Amy: I love sunsets.
Eleventh doctor: sunsets are majestic.
Rory: can we go back in the Tardis before the Daleks show up, and it gets dark?

Question, if you could, would you redraw this with the weeping angle of liberty (the one that took over the statue) in the background?

WELL, if I did that, I'd want to change their outfits to be episode accurate too and that'd be a lot of work. I kinda like it as it is.

hey has anyone ever noticed that the tardis says "PULL TO OPEN". but almost every single time, the doctor or companion or anyone really, just pushes it open? Is it like, one of those doors that opens both ways? if thats the case then why have instructions on which way to open it?

This is so awesome! I love the expression on Rory's face XD

The texturing on the Doctor's jacket is impressive!

I also really love the lighting. The TARDIS is all glowy XD

Seriously amazing!! Or as the 9th Doctor would say "Abosutely Fantastic!"

Hey, just wondering if you would like to do an art trade sometime? I'm afraid I can only draw animals and human females (male heads are so hard to draw!) and am only really good at traditional art, so you can just ignore this if you want to. Sorry for the spam!

Hey there! Afraid I don't have the time for art trades. :(
I've got University, DWR, SFTT and other sketches and projects on my To Do list these days, and I don't want to be adding to it.

You did not put the Statue of Liberty in the background with Amy and Rory.

Oh my; where to start? I really admire the quality here, and the obvious work put into it.. that's sometimes hard to find in collaborations like these.

Probably the biggest part of this picture that draws me in is the color variety and the tones; you've mastered a wonderful range of values and, to me, that's always delightful to find. Especially with the absence of lines in the background, and the colored ones on the characters (which is a technique that I love, albeit hard to pull off at times) I think the interplay between lighting and colors is very well done.

The characterizations are also something I'd like to applaud; I appreciate the balance between caricature and realism here, particularly the expressions, which are complex but don't try too hard to capture specific features. Ughhh I'm trying so hard to type this properly and maturely or something but the coloring and their hair and those clouds and the tweed--I give up! There's just something about your art that's whimsical and thoughtful and faceted and different that draws me in and keeps me there, looking for that one little detail I missed.

Really, if I were to nitpick anything, it'd be the lack of significant texturing on the TARDIS' body, but, honestly? The simplicity of the background against the complexity of the foreground is sort of what balances the composition out... I've got nuthin'. :shrug:

Thank you for a marvelous illustration, and a good day to you! :rose:

I think, they're in trouble... on a scale of 10? 11!
Look at the background, a weeping angel! This is like a foreshadowing.

Anyway, this image is brilliant, I love it, great graphics!
