SFTT ORIGINS: The Professor by Girl-on-the-Moon SFTT ORIGINS: The Professor by Girl-on-the-Moon
THIS IS NOT A TRICK. God I hate April Fools...
Anyway, in case you wondering how he got out of the Time War.
That is how.

Edit: A few tweaks.

I had an unimaginable amount of fun on this one. I'm experimenting with actual comic formats and getting away from the Sunday funnies 3-square-panels thing.

Also, Mark Bonnar is unreasonably attractive and a very good actor. Look him up if you haven't already.

I do no justice to his Scottish accent. Sorry Scottish people. I may stop trying to type it phonetically after this. I think I'm failing miserably and you all know he's Scottish by now.
EDIT: No more phonetic "Scottish" accent. MY APOLOGIES TO SCOTS EVERYWHERE.

Oh, but that has nothing to do with him being in Scotland. Sorry if that's confusing. It just sort of happened like that.

I'm very tired now. Hopefully this will hold you over until I'm all finished finals.

And yes Classic fans, I threw Drax in there. BOO YAH.
SUPER EDIT: Drax is now 'played' by the wonderful Lee Pace as I had originally intended! And my version of Drax does indeed have an American accent. Why not have American Time Lords? Anyway, a character that resembles Lee Pace. For your enjoyment.

Oh and if there are any details of my Time War that don't match up with whatever the f*ck RTD wrote, I don't really give much of a shit. lol

Rest of the comic YONDER:

Oh I love it well done you have unbelievable talent, now I've finished gushing lets critic the hell out of this thing.

I love the explanation of how the professor got stuck on earth it works I mean it makes sense and explains why he can’t just wiz back home in his TARDIS but is stuck instead making tea with little mash-mellows, in a dreary cabin somewhere in Scotland.

My only problem with this explanation, and honestly I only noticed this just now (too busy laughing to notice inconsistencies whilst reading) but didn't the doctor say that if an angel got inside the TARDIS it would be bad I mean really bad, like sun exploding sort of bad. But honestly I’m happy to overlook that because this makes a great story and a great laugh and honestly I ignored all the inconstancies in plot that RTD dreamed up before.

I absolutely adore the last three panels good use of minimal language, and the third panel in, " this would be a lot easier with two friggin eyes," because honestly haven't we all screamed at the television when the angels appear " WINK GOD DAM YOU WINK DONT BLINK!!!" I know I have.

Once again well done and as always I look forward to seeing more of your work.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
45 out of 47 deviants thought this was fair.

The first five panels cutting between Drax & the Angel are very well done! The colours definitely work very well with the art and there is clear planning, thought and dedication shown due to the way shadows are coloured and on't show any indiscrepancies. The split panel featuring the Angel's head being blown apart (albeit temporarily) and the Professor reveal is very well executed through the split panel.

The design of the TARDIS interior is very nicely done, particularly so in my opinion as I'm a fan of the Classic interior. The roundels on the wall are well done and the colour scheme is drab but effective. As the Professor is looking towards the Time Rotor, the colours are once again gorgeously done and work very well with your art.

Finally, the panels with the Angels and the Scottish mountains show such a great contrast but work very well in their own ways. I particularly love the grimness of the Scottish hills in contrast with the oranges of Gallifrey.

Also, this is the first time I've seen the Professor and not instantly reconciled him with Simm's Master, so I'm not sure what you changed but it did the trick, for me at least.

I love this one. I mean I like most of your work but this one especially cause it's got Drax in :happybounce:  . Also I really admire the colouring and even the positioning of the panels is great in this one. Only just realised the angel's hand is like a gun La la la la . Can't wait for new additions (as you might have noticed I'm a fan of your work :) )

Oh wow thank you!
I'm hoping to get inspired soon, but it's not looking hopeful. D:
I want to continue the series SO BADLY but I genuinely can't find the creative inspiration to write what happens next. SORRY.

Bah - I never noticed before with the Angel's hand under his head just like a pistol when I first read this. A subtle "eff you" in return for getting it's head blown of. 

I've noticed you do draw the Angels in a way we don't get to see them in the series. Almost more emotive in some respects. Especially in your latest comic, subtle things like the brisling of their wings and their expressions. Gives them more depth and personality rather than the generic scary face they are so often given.

Aw thanks! I do try to make them a bit more emotive, yes. Because when you know that the monster is thinking, or might be figuring things out or might have a sense of humour... I think that's way creepier than a scary face.

When I was reading through the first part of your new Doctor Who comics, the range of emotion that you had on the angel was actually really spiffy. Made me think how their level of emotiveness could give way to one that isn't the villain of a story. Taken from another perspective they could almost be sympathetic. Heck, in Angels take Manhattan we had one that was tortured just to see if it could feel pain...but I digress. xD

Well yeah, they're a bit murdery in The Time of Angels, but there's nothing to say there aren't some who aren't evil at all.

In some ways they are like sharks. They only do it to feed, though the battery farm was kinda nasty.

 Of course their strongest weapon got toned down after their first appearance since it was a one move win, after that they just became somewhat murder happy. Which is a bit of a shame all things considered. Since the real fear is not them killing you, it's what could happen if they dump you in someplace far away and alone and in the past.

That last panel cracks me up. Every. Single. Time.
