Time Lord Fashion by Saimain Time Lord Fashion by Saimain
I couldn't resist a sketch of River and Eleven in classic/improvised Timelord costumes. Poor Eleven…he can feel the cool draining right out of him. Undoubtedly the real reason he stole a TARDIS and fled Gallifrey all those years ago. XD

The Doctor doesn’t share my opinion of Timelord attire, as he’s spent most of his life defining his own unique and ever-changing sense of fashion…(which at times includes twenty-foot scarves and celery sticks and…well, Six, anyone?), and collecting an enormous wardrobe from all over the universe and throughout its history. Anything and everything to avoid having to wear this again, i imagine. I had way too much fun with this.

Thank you to ~Ardwenn for giving me a few moments to sketch for play between work projects! ^__^

I so love your art, I want to get it all as a tattoo ! lol

I like it! Time Lord fashion is very elegant...but the collar  thing looks rather uncomfortably heavy to wear.

:icontimelordplz: Out of all clothing possible, how did this thing come out as the fashion one?

Expressions are perfect XD

I love this so much, the expressions are in character if this were an actual scenario in the series! River and Eleven look so cute together in this piece!:love:

River: Oh come on sweetie, you look fine! Ravishing even.
Eleven: But River, this is extremely uncomfortable...not to mention it lacks a bowtie, which certainly makes this anything but cool. Can I just cha-
River: NO.
Eleven: How did I get myself into this...

I've been inspired to dress like that for comic con or if anything my senior year for halloween. It's so beautiful <3

They look gorgeous!

"Anything and everything to avoid having to wear this again" - Officially the best explanation ever for the Doctor's fashion choices! But seriously, though, I do love the crazy Gallifreyan robes...

Matt was the best Doctor.

I demand to see the 8th 8.5th 9th 10th and 11th Doctors in this outfit for the 50th anniversary!!

I love the way this is done! Eleven looks so awkward and uncomfortable and it's adorable:)
CrystalTwilight Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Wow they're adorable, poor Eleven looks so uncomfortable hahaha
Artwise the details are incredible, and the shading is lovely :D
Vendus Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
River probably is laughing right now... Eleven would just be flipping his lid on this... He has to be uncomfortable with his hair being shoved down like that...
stelleo Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
River owns that look! The Doctor looks a tad awkward though *laughs*

I LOVE his expression in this! Way too cute!
Neidonkorento Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be so hilarious if there was an episode in which he wore 'official' TimeLord clothing! He would run like a pretty little lady with the hems held in his hands to avoid tripping! And he would still stumble! :rofl:

He looks cute!

YE-E-ES! This is great.
Anaisdrawings Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm just fascinated by your art, I find very interested to represent the doctor and River with the Gallifrey clothes. Eleven does not seem confortable with this new clothes, we can see this with his expression, on the other hand River seems like her new clothes. I like your style.
sorry for my bad english.
BrentOGara Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Poor boy... betrayed by fashion! River looks spectacular, as indeed she always does! :D

This is adorable!
Alyssa-Lioness Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
I have a feeling River is loving this. She probably adores the sight of her Doctor dressed up so fancy and feeling awkward every second of it! :XD:
MalisVitterfolk Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it'd probably be more the awkwardness than the attire she is loving the most!

CleanCupCreamCake Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
Oh, this is magnificent! And your River! You've nailed the classy, mischievous little darling!
FluffyUnicorn96 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
That looks so amazing! It's like the Doctor and River Song (that is riversong, right?) when they're married and living in Gallifrey~ it seems really magical, but of course all just a dream. </3
Also, is that supposed to be a wedding ring on the Doctor's hand? because if it is, it's on the wrong hand.
Saimain Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013  Professional General Artist
I left that up to the viewer to decide. :) Some cultures wear wedding bands on their left hands, some their right, and who knows for alien cultures. It could be just a ring.

Oh I see ;D

I don't know what I love more--the whole attire or Eleven's face!
You capture facial expressions so perfectly!
