The Doctor Who Portrait Project, vol 2

Here’s another progress shot of the First Doctor. Looks a lot more accurate now, I spent most of the time carefully checking over the proportions; enlarged the forehead and chin, shrank the cheek.


The Doctor Who Portrait Project, vol 1

I’ve been watching the original series of Doctor Who lately, and I’ve wanted to work on my portraits. I’ve decided to combine the who and do a portrait of each Doctor as I come across. If I manage to keep this up, hopefully by the time I get to the new series, I’ll stop being so horrible at it.

Here’s my first attempt, William Hartnell as the Doctor, with my screenshot reference beside it:

Update from yesterday

Replaced the buildings with clouds and fiddled with the levels on the tree

Last call to kick my ass

So, I’ve finally added Cyandog to the rest of the image and I’ve redone the buildings in the background (very quicly and lazily).

Two steps to go until it’s ready to post a final version: go get last-minute critiques and decide how to frame the final version.

Another day another update, whoa!

Anywhoo, here’s a drawing I did from a stock photo. I’m thinking of making a painting of it and I’m playing with composition.

Cyandog, check. Also: a pretty butterfly

Been a while so I thought I’d post a few updates.

First, a progress shot on that medabots fanart. Cyandog is in place and I’m halfway through colouring him. Once that’s done I just need to add some drop shadows to the trees and tighten things up a bit.

Second, a painting I recently finished and gave to my friend for her birthday. Took over a year from when I first said I’d “paint her a butterfly” and when I actually got it done >.<
