The Oncoming Storm by Saimain The Oncoming Storm by Saimain
My take on a darker version of the Doctor, the Predator, reminiscent of the Dreamlord or the Valeyard. A man who's been wounded one too many times, whose defenses have finally shattered under the guilt and pain and loneliness of centuries. He has finally turned his back on the universe, becoming the one thing he feared the most. The blood of entire worlds is on his hands, and there is no one left to stop him.

"See? This is what happens when you travel alone for too long." -Amy.

DON'T BE ALONE, DOCTOR!

—Edit: quotes from The Name of the Doctor: “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…”

THIS PAINTING IS NOW LEGIT, GUYS!! @___@

Holy crap! :o  *Hides behind couch*

This is how I imagine some of his enemies picturing him in their minds.
Dalek: The predator of the Daleks will be deployed.
The Doctor: You don't have a predator and even if you did, why would they turn off a force field for you?
Prime Minister: Because you will have no other means of escape.

Hi. Your work is absolutely marvelous. I'm developing an android game based on Dr. Who and would love it if you allow me to use this as the cover art. Please PM me

Thank you so much for asking first, but I will have to say no.  This is a rather dark and disturbing out-of-character scenario that I was just playing with--I would not want the Doctor to be seen like this, or promoted like this for a game.

(And if you are working on a game please note that The Doctor's name is "Doctor."  You cannot abbreviate it with "Dr." because it is not simply a title or a degree!  His name is Doctor.  The title of the series is Doctor Who, and it is a question--the oldest question in the universe.)  :)

I have been admiring this extraordinary painting for quite a time, but I just have to ask at last: what is the thing on his left wrist?
But really, the painting is so deep and creates so many thoughts and feelings. Every time I just have to look at it for a while...

Thank you.  :)  It's a handcuff, or part of some other metal restraint that tried to hold him back.  His hand is bleeding because he physically broke it.
