Doctor Who Sketches by stratosmacca Doctor Who Sketches by stratosmacca
This is one of the pages out of my sketchbook. As usual, it started out with an idea and then went kind of crazy...

At the top and to the right are my designs for an outfit for the 6th Doctor. The guy really could have used a better costume for his run on the series, and he really could've looked quite cool. Instead, we got JNT's "marketable" approach to the Doctor's appearance, and thus Colin Baker ended up looking like a crayon box exploded. Sigh.

Anyway, I think he would've looked awesome in a design similar to the one I've drawn. Maybe some blue-ish tones to his attire.

And to the bottom left we have... Well, it's my take on the 4th Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith in the Matrix. That's probably the best way to describe it. Like I said, my sketches tend to get crazy.

If they did, that may have been the Sixth Doctor's costume. And add a dark blue or black (or both) and the Sixth Doctor could have been longer. After all, it's not the clothes, it's the man.

And the Fourth Doctor and Sarah aren't bad looking Matrix Style.

I love the one with the caped greatcoat, he would have looked fabulous in that! 

I like you're lovely, clean-lined drawing style too.

Don't ask me why 4 and Sarah looking all Matrix makes me happy, it just does

I applaud any attempt to fix the 6th Doctor's godawful outfit while staying true to his character. Nice work.

Yo, great work. Just to let you know that Colin Baker wanted his outfit to be dark blues and violets. So his outfit was all the designers fult... i think.

No amount of cool costuming could've rescued that era - the stories just werent there.

Colin Baker actually wanted his Doctor to dress in Black Victorian Garb, but the Designer wanted the Colorful Out Fit. At First they tried a Compromise, The Technicolor-Time Coat, over a Black Pinstripe Suit, but the directors and Producers, wanted to go with the complete multicolor costume.

I LOVE your costume for 6. Especially the cut with the extra material in the shoulders there. You going to color it to show your ideas for the way you would have done it?

Pretty good drawings, though I certainly disagree on your opinion of Colin's 'technicolor timecoat.' That thing was great on so many levels, though I'm not going to get in to that here. I'll just go ahead and say that these drawings are very good, especially the big one on the right.

I am REALLY loving your Six outfit design, the jacket looks rather jazzy, and the rest of his gear seems about the same, but is probebly a much duller colour, though I can honestly say that I actually like the "Crayon box explosion" jacket ^^; I think this would have deffinately have been more to HIS taste...

and, though he isn't really a likeable Doc in my Eye, Your matrix four is pretty cool as well. :nod:

mmmm, lovely. And Colin Baker would've looked very nice in that, especially were it blue..
I've gotta say, he may be violent (although in the two serials of his I've watched I have yet to see any evidence besides him beating up a fake police officer, which is something Jon Pertwee would have done..), he's different and that's what make him interesting..

lol Crayon box explosion. Couldnt have put it better. :XD: As much as I love the Amazing Technicolor Screamcoat, Colin deserved so much better. Hell, he himself wanted to go black for his Doctor but... yeah. ^_^;

Thanks for drawing him a more bad ass get up, friend. ^_^ :thanks: :+favlove:

Thanks! Glad you like :D

I always thought Colin got a bad wrap from fans. He's actually a pretty good Doctor if you strip away most of the JNT-ness. I would have loved to see him in all black! How cool would that have been??

I know! I've been wanting to do some more Doctor Who work for a while. I'd like to do a few more 4th Doctor pieces.

Sigh. Maybe one day...

There's nothing wrong with that! I'm relatively new to it too. I think I got into it about four years or so ago and fell in love with it. There's so much history to go through, but it's a lot of fun! :D

Cool, Fourth Doctor (is very hot) and Sarah-Jane in the Matrix, i love your sketches. The Sixth Doctor looks very dishy in that outfit, i can't wait until you colour it. :headbang: This rocks, i'm adding it to my favourites.

Yep, seriously! Take a look: [link]
(You should recognize this particular Doctor from an episode of Blake's 7... Remember Bayban the Butcher?)

Poor Colin Baker. I always thought he got a bad rap. Sure, he was far more violent and harsh than the other Doctors, but... I still kinda like him :)

Yeah, Colin Baker's Doctor was the most violent of all of them. I always figured he was just using his role as Bayban to practice for his Who gig ;) :D
