Captain Vimes



Tumbld here.

Born out of daydreaming (again) about this promised Watch tv series (again). I've decided John Simm might well be my dream casting choice for Vimes: he might look a little young for the part for some people's taste, but I think he has the quality you really need in the actor for Vimes: an thoroughly engaging, soulful performance that absolutely sells viewers on the truth of the character underneath all the fantasy and the humour of the story.

(Or perhaps I'm simply being unimaginative re. coppers called Sam who have a propensity for dropping 30 years into their own past.)

So, Sam Tyler from Life On Mars waking up in a '73 demolition site has become the basis for Sam Vimes in a dragon-Devastated Ankh-Morpork square.

An experiment in digital illustration, trying to mix up differently styled picture elements. Perhaps some of the elements used to build Vimes' figure are a little too close in style. I'd have liked the contrast between the illustrated and photographic elements to be as pronounced as they are in the background.

Ohhhhh I love John Simm. I don't think I would've thought of this in a million years, but it would totally work for me!
