10th Doctor by veririaa 10th Doctor by veririaa
The picture I worked off of is located at [link]

I had a really hard time deciding which category to post this in -- mainly because, I pretty much just pixelled the picture. I'm pretty good at copying, whether it's pixels or a painting in real life. Why? No idea. Anyhoo, I decided to post this under "traced base" even though I didn't technically trace it. I sure did keep the original picture open though for reference!

Anyhoo, a person over at Pixel Glam forums had made some Doctor Who character dolls, so that got me inspired to make something Doctor related too. And that's how I came about drawing this. I was going to create an actual doll, but this picture was so adorable of 10 that I just had to re-create it.

It was a great pixel study for me, as it were. It helped me to learn how to shade skin and hair on a larger headed doll/pixel image, which I'm so not used to doing (I always worked on smaller dolls!).

I don't think I'm actually done with it either. I'd like to have some sort of background...Or a frame...Or something to otherwise finish the picture. I was thinking of adding the text "This is my door opener!"

I also thought it would be hilarious to have him holding a banana instead of his Sonic Screwdriver!

I'm still in a debate with myself -- I really, REALLY liked 9 -- but 10 was around for much longer and is just so fun. I might draw 9 next. Thanks so much!

HOLY SMACK!

This is pretty freaking amazing! I do character dolls all the time and I usually work from a whackload of reference images, but I still can never get things to look exactly like the source material. Obviously, you don't have a problem with that. The face = on the money. The hair . . . . THE HAIR! That hair is not easy - believe me, I have yet to conquer it!

I like how you gave the colours more saturation and contrast than the reference photo (for example, his hair looks more brown than grey) - it gives everything a bit more depth and pop, I think.

So. Jealous. Right. Now. :D

Yeah, I tried to match the original colors but decided that wouldn't work out very well, because they would have been veerry flat and grey. I also tried to work out how to give him that chin stubble, that didn't work out either XD lol

That's okay . . . he's not particularly stubbley (on the sides near the sideburns a bit, but I don't think I ever noticed stubble apart from that . . .).
