I’ve been steadily plodding along with the anatomy studies alongside my work on the Doctor Who portraits. Here’s a page of hands I did recently that turned out pretty well.

And some more of the perspective studies from the same book as last time:

4th Doctor – detail pass 1. Also, Perspective practice.

February 15, 2012 Leave a comment

Another update on the Doctor, just working on refining things.



So, in addition to  my work on Tom Baker’s Doctor, I’ve also been following along with some perspective exercises from a book titled “Perspective Drawing”. Unfortunately, the author’s name isn’t listed on the cover.

I’ve also started work on a charity/commission piece for a local community theatre group I’m a part of. They’ve requested a victorian-style portrait of a man in his 50s to use as a set piece for their production of Arsenic and Old Lace.  I’m excited to get started on that, but I’ve got to wait to see what size frame I’ll be working to fit, first.

This one looks a bit more like our beloved 4th Doctor, now that I’ve got my basic shading in.

Got the base colours in. I’m not working off any one specific screenshot for the outfit; I’m just taking my favourite pieces from each episode and throwing them together.


4th Doctor – Values, take 2

So, reworked the pose again, and shrank the head, since I thought it was a bit on the large side, even not counting the hair. Finally think I’ve lost that stiffness. Fourth time’s a charm, I guess.
