I am actively persuing Commissions! Click below for more info!
My first full exposure to Doctor Who was the US Fox TV movie, which I did enjoy. When I eventually, decades later, actually got into the Doctor Who lore, I realized how weird and off this movie was. I still enjoy it. I’ve listened to quite a few of the audio plays featuring the Eighth Doctor. I enjoy those as well. I’ve got a soft spot for him.
I saw him as the Doctor in the Fox TV Doctor Who movie (the introduction and only adventure of the Eighth Doctor), pre-regeneration. Other than that, I thought he was the best part of the “Five(ish) Doctors Reboot”.
I got nothing about this guy, other than his costume is the very definition of “trying too hard”.
I have no experiences with the Fifth Doctor other than the delightful “Five(ish) Doctors Reboot” from the 50th Anniversary. Other than that, this is worst of my Doctor Who drawings. This guy was too young and too handsome, so the entire thing is just bland shit. There was nothing to grab onto to make an interesting portrait. So basically, my least favorite Doctor, automatically.
My second favorite of the Doctor drawings. I think I’ve seen a handful of 4th Doctor episodes, mostly as a kid on PBS, but I never got into them. As an adult, well, I still couldn’t get into them.
All I know about the Third Doctor was he was more of a badass than the prior two (and judging by his outfits, he needed to be), and that the actor’s son looks a lot like him, and is currently playing Thug Butler on the worst show on TV, Gotham.
More from the archives. I’ve never been able to get into the pre-reboot Who stuff. My first Doctor was technically Eight, but it was well into Eleven’s time that I first started watching the 2005 series. I tried to go back and watch some of the classic stuff. I watched the Three Doctors (1,2 & 3), some of Three, some of Four, very minimal of One. Just have a hard time getting into it. The pacing is molasses on those old shows. But man, the early Doctors sure are unique looking men, and a blast to draw.
I have a lot of stuff I need to get done by the end of the month. My commission deadlines loom pretty hard this month, and I want to get them done, which means I need to step back from some other stuff. So, the Sketch-a-Day is gonna take a short break, kinda.
I’m gonna cheat on this thing.
I have a ton of art that I’ve never shared. Some of it is stuff I wanted to color and never got around to it, and then there’s some stuff like this.
About two years ago, I started drawing all the Doctors, with the plan of turning them into a print of some sort. I made it through Nine, and never got around to Ten, Eleven or Twelve. I probably will, eventually. At this point it’s fear keep me from doing it. It’s been too long, I draw slightly differently, there’s a lot of detail, etc. etc. But for now, as I play catch-up, enjoy some unreleased tracks from my archives.
Inspired by Nick Marino, who mentioned Ecto-Cooler in a comment about a recent sketch, plus remembering that Kurt Dinse and I were once gonna do competing Slimers. Plus, yknow, ghosts, October, Halloween, all that.
My friend Bruce and I used to talk about how Rhino would be a perfect one-scene villain in a Spider-Man movie. It’s a James Bond opening, Rhino rampaging through the city. Spider-Man stops him. 1st 5 minutes, credits, then we get the rest of the movie with a main villain. It establishes other villains without needing to dedicate two hours to a character that might not be able to fill that time. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 came close to doing that, but still fucked it up.
