Bow Ties Are Cool by swimmingtrunks Bow Ties Are Cool by swimmingtrunks
They are. And so is this past season of Doctor Who! An expression of my love was long overdue and I was looking for a little outlet between freelance things, so this happened.

EDIT: OMG, DD! Thanks so much! I'm glad you guys like it!! I'm all in a tizzy here, lol. Anyway, thanks again- enjoy!- and so excited for April 23, amirite?

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-26
No arguments about it, Bow Ties Are Cool! *swimmingtrunks captures the latest incarnation of the Doctor and his companions perfectly through their combined dislike/adoration of the simple bow tie and her colorfully sketchy style. ( Featured by y2jenn )

Notice: I don't give 5's to anyone but God himself :p

I really love the artwork as a whole, for me it's minimal and complicated at the same time.
I love the detail in the characters as much as the fact that they resemble the actors properly, even though they're not exactly the same. You've got the spirit of them.
I love the simple yet absolutely fitting background, it's perfect for the Vortex effect, but it still gives the impression of your own style, just to meet the character's faces.
Their expressions are perfectly right, especially Amy and Rory's are like they're taken from a screenshot.
The TARDIS in the back is enough to give the message that it's there, but without being heavy and "stealing" from the rest of the artwork.

All in all, I love this!!!

The Doctor's pose makes him look like he's saying:
I'M DA BOSS. DEAL WITH IT.

I wonder why 11 was the first Doctor to wear a bowtie since the 2nd Doctor.
