A very fun Fifth Doctor and Nyssa T-shirt design commissioned by Circular-Time!
I have been wanting to draw Five for a long while now, so I was quick to accept this one. In the process of learning to draw him I ended up with whole pages of other sketches to play with and maybe post later, so that was an extra bonus! I love being commissioned for Doctor Who artwork, especially of my favorite Doctors.
My favourite Doctor and my favourite companion. Heck, they're just pain far and away my fave TARDIS team ever (I wish they'd had more stories together just the two of them without Tegan coming back at the end of Arc of Infinity, they made such a good team). Also I wish Nyssa hadn't left when she did on Terminu.
This is really beautifully arted, and so so cute and I guess I've shipped them for like the last 15 or 20 years but that's not necesssarily a bad thing, right? (I'm 32 btw)
That said, my other fave companion - Zoe - appears to have gotten the same treatment post-TV stories, what with her memory erasure breaking down and causing her to essentially go a bit crazy for the rest of her life.
I'll just stick to the TV series.
On topic, this drawing is lovely. <3
(I also ship Zoe/TARDIS, but most people think that's a bit of a weird pairing lol)
No, I'm sorry, this was a paid commission from a client for a T-shirt she wanted to wear to a Doctor Who convention to show the actors. I can't post a version without my watermark or other people could rip and print it everywhere and her T-shirt would no longer be unique.
And yes, they are definitely Team Nerd. I love that whole. "Can I have your sonic screwdriver, now a pencil" scene. Only Nyssa could so matter-of-factly short out a robot with a pencil. Loved it!
And definitely love that look on 5's face. Nyssa was always his favorite. (As attested by Peter Davison.)
I hope you get loads more Doctor Who commissions.
I absolutely cannot wait to see Sarah's face when she sees this. She's gonna smile that beautiful smile, I know it. One more month!
I'm sure...And it's still a beautiful smile, I agree.
And a bit jealous, as I can never afford to go where she's at. And she has no reason to come it to my state.
Beginning to think I'll never meet the Pretty Lady. Which is sad, as she's had such an impact on my life.
(They were re-runs or episodes on tape)
