And He Knew He Was... Wrong by Girl-on-the-Moon And He Knew He Was... Wrong by Girl-on-the-Moon
Entry for #David-Tennant-Love's 'Emotional David' contest.
When I think of David's mad acting skillz, it's always the subtleties that impress me the most. This guy has got LAYERS of emotion going on. LAYERS.
In this moment I chose (from Waters of Mars) I can spot at least five different emotions in his expression and I have no idea how the hell he does it.
He never ceases to amaze me. Guh.
Done in pencil on standard recycled white sketchbook paper, whites made grey in Photoshop, then added white highlights in Corel Painter. About two to three hours of work. (Tutorial here: [link]).

Oh, and the title is a play on 'And He Knew He Was Right' (a terrible book, but a fun BBC series if you like seeing DT be a sissy) because you can see the fear in the Doctor's eyes that he might be wrong. LAYERS.
This man needs an Oscar...

:trophy: Woot! Winner of the #David-Tennant-Love 'Emotional David' Contest!

Excellent portrait. Love the style! Really like your musings on the actor, too, and I have to agree. He is very good. Makes me want to see some of his other roles, too.

unhappy David :nuu: But you're absolutely right, he has so much going in in his expressions, that's why I don't care for the 11th Doctor too much, he doesn't have the depth of emotion that David had.

His face has more layers than 7 layer dip. Best actor EVER. (at least up there) And you captured ALL of the expressions. Can I PLEASE steal your David Tennant drawing ability?
Oh, nevermind... I'll get there eventually...

Wow, this is such a great drawing! You do such a beautiful job with the shading and highlights that it looks as if he is going to speak at any moment. This was a well deserved win! :love: All of your portraiture is wonderful but I have a real soft spot for David Tennant and you really do him justice! :worship:

He does deserve an Oscar! This man is gifted far beyond any other.
The shading in this is beautiful, and the depth, not only in his emotions, but in his facial structure, is aesthetic.
