Happy birthday, Peter Capaldi!
If you look at the date beneath my signature, I did this illustration back in October before we knew what his new costume would be. I am going to do a new Twelve (with new outfit), after I finish sketching out the others. (This is the style I wanted to do them all in: it’s mostly gray gouache and ink, with little color accents here and there like this one has.) :)
Rough sketch of the Time War version of the 8th Doctor, Paul McGann.
Like the others in this series, this will be turned into a finished illustration.
I wanted to do the later version of Eight before I get to the War Doctor. Scruffier, sadder and more disillusioned… and being menaced by Dalek saucers.
Rough sketch of the 8th Doctor, Paul McGann. Like the others in this series, this will be turned into a finished illustration.
I admit to being very fond of Eight’s gothic TARDIS with its candlelabra and books. In the book “Vampire Science”, Eight has a room completely devoted to butterflies. I thought the butterfly could also symbolize regeneration, as well as time travel in the Ray Bradbury sense. (“A Sound of Thunder”.)
I just received the envelope today, Ashley. THANK YOU!!! I’m still amazed that Peter took the time out of his very busy schedule to send personal replies to the scrapbook contributors. How awesomely WONDERFUL and what a gentleman!!!! :D :D
(And yes, this is getting framed. ;) )
- - - YAY raineszramski!!!
Rough sketch of the 7th Doctor, Sylvester McCoy. Like the others in this series, this will be turned into a finished illustration.
Things seemed to blow up a lot during his tenure. Plus I’m going to have him standing on a chessboard. (And the chess squares will be drawn in better perspective…)
Rough sketch of the 6th Doctor, Colin Baker. Like the others in this series, this will be turned into a finished illustration.
I couldn’t resist putting in Frobisher, the shapeshifting alien penguin, who is only a character in the Doctor Who comics and a companion of Six’s.
(Not to be confused with the Frobisher Peter Capaldi plays in Torchwood, who is definitely not a shapeshifting penguin. At least, I think…)
Rough sketchbook drawing of the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. It will be made into a finished illustration.
8 more Doctors to go!
Fourth of my sketchbook Doctors: Tom Baker looking just a little bit psychotic…
Again, this is a rough sketch for a finished drawing that will be done in ink and paint.
Yup, this is mine.
What happens when one of my cartoons starts traveling on its own without my knowing about it!
(Why I really need to sign my sketchbook drawings. *head-desk, head-desk*)

Third of my very rough sketchbook Doctors, with Jon Pertwee this time. Like the others, this will be turned into a finished drawing in ink and gouache. The countdown to all 12 (well, really 13) continues…
