3rd Doctor.

Jon Pertwee had so many different costumes... He also ushered in color Doctor Who AND none of his episodes were erased while BBC was cleaning shop. The beginning of an era!

Look again.

I'm usually awful at making WIP shots in any sort of step by step process. Usually its just a "oh hey, someone should see this here, *WIP*" so heres a rare look at the start of a picture, where I'm still playing around with a couple things before committing to the long haul. My horse anatomy is a little rusty, plus throwing a rider on top of it is making me a little cautious. I ended up doing some research on "equestrian portraits" and it gave me a pretty good idea of what I wanted. (turns out, equestrian portraits are really static because the painter is doing it from life so the horse is just standing there, or its super crazy and probably made up and ref'd. just my guess. But I still like them horses!)

from left to right:
1: First go at what I think I want, liked the horse, don't like the rider.
2: Same horse, tweaked rider, like it better but still not what I'm lookin for in my head. The horse seems like it should be in something with a more interesting composition, but it just isn't working for what I am actually going to do. (saving this version for something later then!)
3: Tried something different with horse, super boring, total snooze, worst tangent ever. i kinda like the rider in this, its kinda what i need. The horse could have been saved if it had been in a larger picture with legs though, but it just wasn't working here.

So I ended up with this one, the horse has enough movement, have enough space for some kind of background, and the rider is will be perfect once I lay down some real drawing.

6th Doctor.

Colin Baker actually showed up in an earlier Peter Davison episode. It was really weird.

Coloring Pages

Jonathan is working on some comics, and i am lucky enough to get to color them. Here is a panel we both like, that doesn't really tell you much other than its really overcast here.

1st Doctor.

William Hartnell episodes are... interesting! Early Doctor Who doesn't hold up as well as say, The Prisoner, but they're still pretty interesting in a historical context.
