Does It Need Saying?

So I finally started watching Doctor Who, and of course its amazing. I loved the ending to this episode. It was sooo bittersweet I could hardly take it. :XD:
There are other things I need to do, but I just couldn't help myself. This was really fun to paint - especially because I had to make up most of the details because my reference was so pixelated. Near the end I decided to throw in the TARDIS; little did I know it would take up an extra hour and a half of time! Drawing that thing correctly and in perspective is a pain, especially when you end up miniaturizing, blurring and lowering the opacity when you're finally done. :P
I wanted to try out painting without an initial sketch again (first attempt here - [link] ) and just tweaking and refining as I go along. Its very refreshing :)
Anyway, hope you like!

wow, this is really good. At first I thought it was cosplay, but then I looked a little harder, your shading caught me off guard. I had to concentrate on the picture to reassure myself this wasn't a photo you took on the beach.

I REALLY like this. keep up the good work!

I loved how you managed to capture the passion in Rose's and 10.5's kiss. When I saw it, for me, I was like, "Yeah! It's about TIME!" even though it broke my heart that 10.5 isn't really the Doctor. Not really. The original Doctor and Rose never kissed in Rose's memory, and the original Doctor never got to kiss her the way he wanted to either.

Just a sad, sad day. Not to mention Ten looked so flipping heart-broken when he had to leave. He barely got to say goodbye when Rose and 10.5 started kissing, which I thought was a bit rude. Say goodbye to your old doctor Rose! Don't just leave the other one unforgotten!

But nooo...

Sorry. I have rants about that episode. Loved it, but it just hurts.
