The Doctor by Chimaera-Stormhawk The Doctor by Chimaera-Stormhawk
I just finished this Today, I think it turned out rather well, although I had some difficulty with the blasted camera... I finally put my giant sketch pad to use, it's a lovely 18" x 24". Now all I need is a bigger scanner and I wouldn't have problems with the graphite reflecting the flash. :roll: I had better stick with good old 8.5" x 11"

Oh yes, and if you plan on drawing David Tennant in the future, prepare to go absolutely crazy trying to get his nose right... :no:

Very nice, but why is it being submitted as a new artwork to the Pencil Portrait club?

Because I submitted it before they got new folders and they haven't re-organized it yet.

...I don't know who doctor Who is, but I like the picture. Just as I like darthfar's picture of the aforementioned...
Who the hell is this man?
Could you briefly tell me? :)

It's a British show aired on the BBC that's been running on and off since the sixties. The Doctor is a Time traveller from the planet Gallifrey. His whole race was wiped out during the time war against the Daaleks so he is the last of his race. Being the last can get pretty lonely so he always picks up a companion from earth (usually from the 20th or 21st century, and usually female). Then they travel through space and time visiting places, and the Doctor usually ends up 'saving the day' from whatever evil they encounter.
Conveniently, his race can 'regenerate' whenever that form is dying ( aka whenever the actor's contract expires :D ) and take on a new, fresh form. Currently the newest 'Doctor' is David Tennant.
I've only started watching recently so all I know is stuff from the latest seasons. If you want to know about things more in depth you can ask *WraithTen because her husband has been watching it since it first aired, or you can check it out on wikipedia here: [link]
(Sorry I tried to make it as brief as possible) :D

Ah yes, Devid Tennant's nose, a tough one to draw. Why is that?
When I saw this in thumbnail view I knew who it was. You did a great job capturing his likeness! Nicely done!

I think its because his nose is wide but also narrow and pointy... :hmm:

You nailed his likeness. :nod: Very excellent job there Chim. Since you penciled him so nicely, I'm not going to let you fudge on his suit next time. You're going to have to go for all the stripes and the flowered tie. ;) I'm just sayin'...

Next time I'm using charcoal because I have a white charcoal pencil that would have been great for that. Unfortunately you cant use the white charcoal on graphite... it just doesn't work. I was going to do the pin striping, but have you ever tried to erase such a small line? I was mad that I didn't get it right either.

Great job on nailing his likeness and expressive "dopey" [to use Far's description] features :clap:

I think you did a great job with his portrait. You know, I've been hoping for larger scanners for the likes of us who like to work big :giggle: As for the graphite being reflective ... a lot of it also has to do with the paper. The more you saturate a paper with graphite, the shinier it becomes. Maybe a paper with a bit more tooth to it will help you for your next David Tennant drawing ;)

I mistakenly thought, "oh I have to color this in dark so that it will show up in the scanner" then I remembered how big my scanner was :doh:

Hehe, I remember making the same mistake once upon a time. It still turned out really well, and it was nice to see a David Tennant drawing in a different pose/setting. Everyone else seems to draw the same one as everyone else. Diversity is a great thing :)

I agree, I wanted to do something different than everyone else, and out of the three or four pre-sketches this one turned out the best.

Ugh, David Tennant's nose... Thank goodness I was working on cardboard when I drew him, because *that* could withstand a little more eraser abuse than most paper products! I could tell at a glance who he was, though; kudos for nailing him. :clap:

If you don't mind my saying so, Tennant looks a bit of a dope in *every* single one of his photographs. :lmao: Is that what endears him to his fans?

Ok, you did NOT just use the word 'dope'. :no:

I think I know what it is, as I have discussed this in depth. :giggle: No, I'm not obsessed or anything. :D He has a VERY expressive face. Which makes him fabulous to watch but every time, and I mean EVERY TIME, you try to get a still of him during the show...his face is contorted into some silly face. :slow:

That's what me and hubby think anyway. You'd have to watch the show to really see it. ;) *hint, hint*

Chimaera-Stormhawk Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks! :bow: Yes Cardboard is good for that.
I think that I would have to agree with you, although I don't think I would call him a 'dope' as such... his character in the show can be described as a very intelligent, very expressive child in an adults body... if that makes any sense. It's the expressions that make fangirls I think... sort of like the Johnny Depp of the U.K.
