Regeneration by Saimain Regeneration by Saimain

So I'll...um...just leave this here...

There is no excuse for this, except my intense freaking out during the wait for the Doctor Who season finale this weekend! ^__^;;; Had to paint something to relieve the stress before I imploded. I love Eleven to death (augh) and never, ever intended this, nor do I ever want to see it happen, but it just sort of...threw itself onto the canvas and now I feel better.

[Edit: AND SO two weeks after I paint this Matt Smith announces that he's leaving Doctor Who.  We'll see his Doctor regenerate this Christmas!  *crying forever*]

So a theory on that point.

That MASSIVE explosion was the Doctor regenerating from his first FULL cycle of regenerations (1-12, 13 incarnations total). Then the ACTUAL change from Matt to Peter was that quick little one. If everyone will recall correctly, the Doctor's original regenerations were very subtle, but as time went on, his regenerations became increasingly violent. Until David Tennant's second regeneration which SHOULD have been his last. So the consequence of a brand new regeneration cycle meant that he had to regenerate FROM that original cycle into the new one. The whole new cycle of regenerations will all start subtle, and then become more violent as time goes on.

In conclusion: I think a lot, but not too much.

I was kind of thinking about how he could've been able to regenerate more than 13 times. I think it might have something to do with River giving her regenerations to him.

He's my favorite, not looking forward to this. I think they move on from doctor to doctor way too fast. Though, if they didn't I guess Mast Smith wouldn't have had the chance.

Only I became a Whovian a little too late! The Eleventh Doctor was immediately my favorite. I wish he'd stayed on one more year until I settled into the regeneration concept. I hope Matt will reprise the role whenever the show calls for it.

Peter immediately impressed me with his "Kidneys!" line. And he's a lifelong Whovian, so I'm sure he'll do a brilliant job. Not gonna lie, this incarnation is not exactly handsome, but perhaps his intellect will make up for that. It has before with the Doctors before 10 and 11.

Yeah, my brother and I always say that line when there's an awkward silence. I agree, and when I saw the episode where he was playing a person in Pompeii, I knew that he was going to be a good actor for the part as the Doctor.

First of all, let me say that I think all your Doctor Who fan art is absolutely stunning and I love it and I hope you keep on doing it. Now, what three paintings have come true, just out of curiosity?
Reply
:iconsaimain:
Saimain Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013

Thank you!  :)

The first one that came true was a sketch I hadn't posted online, showing my thoughts on the Doctor's new companion Clara.  Basing her on Oswin (half a year before we knew the connection between those two characters), I sketched her dragging Eleven around by the hand, in contrast to Eleven's having dragged Amy about the previous years.  And when the Christmas Special came around, that is exactly what she did! 

The Second one was "Oncoming Storm."  My depiction of a dark Doctor reminiscent of the Valyard, what pain and loss and despair would ultimately drive him to.  And in "Name of the Doctor," this was confirmed: “The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day upon day. He will have other names before the end: Storm, the Beast, the Valyard.” “The Cruel Tyrant, the slaughterer of ten billion, the Vessel of the Final Darkness…”

Then lastly this one, "Regeneration."  I was under the assumption that Matt Smith had signed on for another year, as BBC had previously stated, and I was just painting this to get out all my anxiety about the season finale.  And then, less than two weeks after I post it....  x_X;; 

(There was also the fact that I was depicting River and the Doctor being married before S7 confirmed that they'd honored their marriage and were calling themselves husband and wife, but that was an easy one.)  :)
