Another Doctor Who commission from Big Chief Studios and officially approved by the BBC! This is my long-awaited portrait of the Ninth Doctor, titled “The Parting of the Ways" - it’s meant to be a dually melancholy/hopeful piece, as it was inspired by both the triumphant scene in The Doctor Dances, as well as the bittersweet regeneration scene in The End of Time. Part of my official series!
I was commissioned by Big Chief Studios to do some more Doctor Who artwork for official BBC licensing! This is a portrait of the Tenth Doctor called “The Turn of the Universe,” it goes with my Eleventh portrait “The Roar of Our Stars.” (Ninth Doctor is also coming shortly in this series!)
Will be available to buy online as an official print from Big Chief Studios & BBC in the near future!!
cantfakethecake said: Okay my failed attempt at a dramatic entrance aside, what did you think of The Shakespeare Code? because that was one of my favorites EVER. And Doomsday, because that’s a necessary question.
Um, Shakespeare Code… I’m trying to remember… it was a long time ago I think…
Okay, so after reading an episode summary it started to come back to me a little. I remember being intrigued, delighted and then flipping out when Martha used “Expelliarmus!” to end the sonnet that cast the Carrionites away. I had kind of been spoiled for the Martha Is Shakespeare’s Dark Lady bit, but I still found it incredibly clever, nonetheless.
As for Doomsday, I have a post about that queued up, but suffice it to say that I appreciate what they did, and felt sad for them, but I don’t ship the Doctor and Rose on an OTP level (it’s kind of more like a BROTP… but with romance?) so afterwards I was more concerned with how they would carry on his sadness/character into the next couple episodes and so forth. I was quite pleased with that part, actually.
I don’t know if those sufficiently answer your questions, but it was a long time ago, and I usually watched them on a binge while playing Harvest Moon or something, so my memory is really sketchy. Sorry. :[
EDIT: When I said I had a post queued, clearly I meant that I it was in my queue, but actually already got posted. Whoops.
I always felt like I was intruding on this moment whenever I watched it or saw it as gifs. It’s like, this is one of the worst, most emotional points of both their lives… and here I am as a viewer, taking it all in. I felt like it was only proper to look away and give them their privacy… but I couldn’t bring myself to do that either.
