Vote Six (2013) by SteveAndrew Vote Six (2013) by SteveAndrew
A rare poster from The Doctor's ill-fated sixth run for the Gallifreyan Presidency in 5196. The Time Lords liked his running mate (running mate, get it?) Perpugilliam Brown, but frankly found The Doctor to be a bit of an arse at first. By the time of the first debate, he mellowed somewhat and voters began to warm to him, but it was all too late...

"DOCTOR / BROWN '96: WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!"

This is a very neat poster and it makes me laugh. This is vector right? How do you create these?

Thank you! :D

I probably did this in entirely the wrong way! I'm a huge fan of Adobe Illustrator and use it frequently at work. Sadly it's a bit expensive for me to get a copy for my creaky old MacBook at home. I tried Inkscape, a decent free alternative but, although I can see it has potential, I had a lot of trouble getting used to the interface. (I've been using Adobe products for the best part of 20 years, so my mind has trouble using non-Adobe keyboard shortcuts!)

So, I just ended up doing this with the lasso tool and layers in Photoshop, simple as that. I had to use a photo of Colin and an Obama poster for reference. If you zoom in veeeeeeeery close, you might be able to see that some edges aren't as smooth as vectors.

Thanks! I actually thought of this ages ago and was planning to put it out before the 2012 election (seemed like an obvious gag.) But then I got a case of the wobbles when I thought Romney might get in and I thought this poster would be in bad taste. And other pictures got in the way too.

I really should have done this with vectors, but sadly Illustrator is rather expensive for me at the moment, so it was just done with the lasso and layer masks in Photoshop. Might have been the wrong way to go about it, but it was so much fun to do, I'm seriously considering one for each Doctor, as you suggest. :-)

By sheer coincidence, it was only after I finished the image and posted it, that I found out it was Colin's birthday!
