Doctor Who 50th for SDCC'13 Souvenir Book

1K Favourites
Here is my entry for the San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Souvenir Book celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who!! I wanted to put together a piece that really highlighted ALL the Doctors. I struggled with an idea for a good 2 months and didn't come up with this particular concept until recently. But I am so satisfied with how this turned out!! The idea was to play with the word "run" as it is the longest running sci-fi show (and still going strong), and that it is what the Doctor does when the situation calls for it: basically ... RUN! lol :D

The hardest part about this concept was trying to get the right colors for the earlier Doctors. Photo ref is all over the place, so I had to do a lot of referencing from toys and action figures instead. I'm not sure about how submissions are handled, if entries have to be hand-picked, since this is my first time submitting art. But I hope mine ends up being printed in the book.

Doctor Who has become one of my all-time favorite series and I just wanted to contribute to it's amazing 50 year RUN! :D

50 God, I never thought of that. The first episode came out when I was only a 7 month old baby. I'll be 54 in March. I first saw the show during the Jon Pertwee days in Phoenix Arizona in 1974.

XD Very clever wording and love how you have all the Doctors running nearly as Tsunami of Time Lords.

I was wondering if I had permission to use this as my Facebook cover photo? I would credit you. If not, that's totally alright, just figured I would ask :)
