5th Doctor – back at it

I’m back to work on the 5th Doctor’s portrait. I know it’s been some 9 months, but I haven’t forgotten!

I’ve decided to try a different look this time. I’ve set up the background texture and colour based on what I learned with Four’s portrait and laid in some base colour. I want to try to  focus on the head and arms and leave the rest a bit unfinished, so I’ve let the background show through on his back and torso.

I did a bit of detailing to his chest and hair. Thank god for his straight blonde hair – after Tom Baker’s mop, it was downright easy.  I’m not looking forward to Colin Baker at all.

5th Doctor – Ambition levels: rising

So after some watching and re-watching,  I’ve decided on a screenshot. This has always been my favourite 5th Doctor scene: Coming across a tray of celery on a table at a party, the Doctor looks over his own celery, then the celery on the tray… takes two stalks from the tray, comapres them, picks one, and replaces his own celery with it.

It’s tricker than I’ve tried before – more of his body showing, hands present, face not very clear. I’ve got more screenshots of just his face in almost similar poses if I need them. I’m cautiously optimistic – this drawing went by a lot faster than my first attempt at the 4th Doctor.  Here’s my sketch:
