My first, sketchy-ish tribute to BBC's Doctor Who, in honor of the new season starting this weekend! I never paint actors, so this was a huge challenge--took quite a lot of staring at and sketching episode stills before I could get his face and outfit semi-right, and this isn't as polished as I would like it to be, but I don't have any more time to spend on it. The Eleventh Doctor, with Gallifrey and Earth in his hands, and lots of swirly starry stuff.
This is really good; the composition, the pose, the soft textures, everything. The lower half is about how he's basically in control of the whole universe and he knows it, though he never meant to be so powerful.
