Not So Clever - Painter IX by Girl-on-the-Moon Not So Clever - Painter IX by Girl-on-the-Moon
I'm not too happy with the title, but I was listening to 'Shipwrecked' by Chameleon Circuit just when I finished it, and it IS the Doctor's thinking-up-a-new-plan-otherwise-we're-screwed/kicking himself face.
Oh the layers of David's acting.

Anyway, been wanting to do this one for a while, because GUH he's adorable and the lighting's fantastic.
Taken from one of my favourite (and best lit) episodes, "The Impossible Planet".

About 3 ish hours in Corel Painter IX, reference used.
Original reference shot ©BBC. Doctor Who ©BBC.

Want to know how I did it? How convenient! I did a painting tutorial! [link]
And the rest of my paintings are over here: [link]

And hey, no comments on how much you love David and hate Matt. I f*cking love Matt and I really don't want to hear it. Way to be all negative.

I think we can all agree that this guy has way too many fangirls for one actor.

Yes. You are correct. Too many women are having fun. They should be quelled. Silenced. Party's over ladies. You exceeded the limit for enjoying things. Joy has limits. Everyone knows that. Come on. Nothing to see here. The ban on Tennant has begun. Clear out.

Why the Bluetooth logo?

It's not the Bluetooth logo, although it is actually embarrassingly similar. It's sort of two Ls that make a B. Those are my initials. I have an alternative signature but this one is always just quicker.

Amazing. Best Doctor, best picture I've seen of him... Dave is somehow really hard to draw, but you COMPLETELY captured him perfectly.

Absolutely brilliant. And I agree--while Tennant is AMAZING, Matt Smith will always be my Doctor, and it annoys me that he's still getting backlash over two years later. Of course, that must have been how Peter Davidson must have felt after Tom Baker left, and look how fantastic the Fifth turned out to be.

Eh, I'm rambling now, I apologize. >.< An amazing painting, really well done.

People just need time to adapt :) Matt is different but not bad, Tennant left a strong impression on people and he had Rose to top things off. Just give them time, they'll come around ;D

Love your art by the way, you are incredibly good! :)

I honestly thought that was a picture for a minute XD Honestly only three hours? You're fantastic! Holy crap this is by far the best I've seen anyone do David Tennant. You, miss, are brilliant.

Also, Tennant will always be my favorite doctor, but Matt Smith kicks freaking butt so I'll be forced to stab anyone who rips on him.

I'm having an amazing time looking through your gallery. All of your work is excellent. Your paintings are mind-blowingly good. You did this in only 3 hours? Have a look in my gallery, I do mostly 3D work and I have a nice TARDIS in there ;)
Please never stop what you're doing. You will get somewhere!
