For a thing. A SECRET THING.
I used to hate doing backgrounds, but now I kinda love it and spend way too much time on them. DO NOT FEAR BACKGROUNDS is the lesson learned here today.

This is beautiful. From one fan of the Doctor to another, I am honestly envious of your artistic ability. The light blurring of the TARDIS gives it that "I'm here, but you just don't see me..." effect of the combined perception filter and Chameleon circuit. I find my eyes drawn to the house, even with the stark contrast of the cool color scheme of the TARDIS and the warm color scheme of the rest of the scene.

You've done nicely with the Rule of Thirds, giving the viewer a false perception that the house is the main point, when it seems to me that the TARDIS is what the piece is all about, how it is seemingly always there, but just past the reaches of reality and human influence, lost in time but always finding its way. I congratulate you on your amazing art, and hope to someday become even a tenth of how good you are at this.

The colouring is great, it is evening or sunrise from the look.
The way it is shown is implying the doctor isn't expected (like usual.)
And I think, from the shades used, it is quite a calm picture.
It reminds me of a poem I wrote;

He stood alone,
Watching the world fade away,
Because no matter who asked,
He couldn't stay.
The world ran past him,
on gilded wings,
He cries to his heart
As the ood sings,
If anyone asks
Why the tardis is blue,
It's because inside it is an alien,
With both hearts torn in two.

Friends come and go,
Leave him to shame,
He only wishes
Rose would call his name.
Donna and Martha,
And Sarah Jane too,
Amy and river,
And jack,
All faded away,
And now his life has gone black...
Why the tardis is blue,
It's because inside it is an alien,
With both hearts torn in two.

Vunderful!
(You're work, I mean.)

When I first opened my activity tab for the evening, I had a slew of artwork to look at and view, (because I try to look at everything from all of those that I follow,) I was immediately grabbed by this. Not only is that blue box of awesome and wonderment in it - but the colors seemingly called out to me to readily, if not instantly, open this up to view.

For someone who says they weren't necessarily a fan of backgrounds at one point in time, I cannot tell. Your attention to detail in the shading of the home to the subtle shadow from the home in the grass is stellar.

The forced perspective from just left of the TARDIS to the house makes me feel that you've placed your own perception filter around my neck. I know it's there. But...I just...don't.......care.............

With a simple color palette and wonderful and playful direction with light and shade this is more than simply stunning - it's fantastic.

I never mentioned before, but you really captured an average british house here.
Are you bringing in new characters at all? Since you're returning Claire, I'm excited to see where SFTT is going ^_^

(Oh, by the way, this isn't anything to do with that /OTHER/ secret project you had going.. did you?)

Thank you! It's actually a real house. I went house hunting online and picked one I liked to use for reference. I'm secretly hoping that one day someone will go "HOLY SHIT THAT'S MY HOUSE". :P
(It is. It is the other secret thing.)

Unless I'm mistaken, I do believe that's Clara's house. What the devil are you up to?

Love it, by the way. Someday, I hope to get around to liking backgrounds as well.

It's not Clara's house, but hers is cute and boxy as well I think. But I AM up to something. :D
(And thank you)
