You can still find illustrationfriday.com but it is no longer the site that once hosted a weekly prompt and sometimes offered awards. The new domain is http://www.illustrationage.com . It's still a great resource for budding illustrators, though.


Because of this change, I will be placing the group into stasis as a read-only gallery of collected illustrations. No new illustrations will be added... UNLESS there is someone who would like to curate the collection by finding good illustrations in Deviant art and add them. If you'd like to be a curator, please send me a Note.

Today's prompt is to share the first art you favorited, mine was this tutorial:  Pencil Tutorial by Girl-on-the-Moon  She also was writing/drawing a wonderful Doctor Who comic. She has since moved on, but her early work is still in her gallery. This tutorial was one of the best on how to use a traditional drawing as a layer in  digital art.  #ShowYourHeart

Here is the first installment of a series of Features, "Fandom in Traditional Art". I'm starting with my current favorite fandom: Doctor Who! I thought I'd begin with a selection of the very first Doctor, played by William Hartnell.

The First Doctor - William Hartnell by MonicaRavenWolf   This first example is extraordinary in that it is an exceptional color rendition, aside from a wonderful choice of pose and expression, right down to the monocle (which he rarely used, but looks great!), it is rare to find a color portrait as his shows were filmed in black-and-white. I love the texture of the paper that shows through the fine colored-pencil work. All of Monica's Doctor portraits are consistently wonderful, be sure to check them out @The-Art-of-Ravenwolf!

Doctor Who/ William Hartnell by DukeDexter  An illustration produced for the fanzine "Matrix", Richard Farrell's portrait shows the Doctor from the serial "The Tenth Planet". Beautifully rendered in stark black ink on hot-pressed board. He also does awesome caricatures of all sorts of people, including some of the Doctors! Take a tour of @DukeDexter gallery for some guaranteed smiles :D

<da:thumb id="157843789"/>  Although this particular photo source is used often, Leighton renders it with accurate, but unfussy skill. I really love the loose, immediate quality of his lines and ink washes. He is also an excellent illustrator! See more of @LeightonNoyes Doctor art.
