I'll Be Home for Christmas by SlightlyDraconic I'll Be Home for Christmas by SlightlyDraconic
If only in my dreams.

~~~~~~~~~~~

So, uh. This happened. I'm not really sorry for making it, but I'm a little sorry for not being sorry.

I'm rather proud of how this turned out (it doesn't show up here, but this is even cooler when you hold it a certain way next to the light because the ghost-doctors are pencil and kinda glow aaahhh). I wanted to do a goodbye piece for the Doctor who introduced me to the show. Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited for Twelve, but I think I'm still in denial about Eleven at this point. 

That's about it. Merry Christmas/happy holidays/joyful whateveryoucelebrate, everyone! I think I speak for all the Whovians when I say we're going to be sad later today, so let's have some fun before then, yeah?

Media: Van Gogh pastels (yes, really) and pencil
Doctor Who still doesn't belong to me. Working on that. 
For references I spammed Google Images for pictures of all the Doctors.
The art is mine. :)

Yeah, hopefully he will be as good as ten and eleven were. Just the picture made me sad..especially the title. The art is very good though! It's good to make art so beautiful that it effects people's emotions :D

No problem! :3 I was on YouTube and I just watched the scene where 11 ate fish fingers and custard- and I have to say- I hope 12 is as funny as that.

Ahhh, good ol' Van Gogh pastels, I love working with those, though I find them less practical then some other tipes as they're too greasy for my taste.

Yeah, I definitely know what you mean. Normally I favor the softer ones I have, but these seemed only fitting for this particular piece.

XD I'm joking. It's a really great, sad piece. I am happy, however, that Matt is leaving. Never cared for Tennant either.

Oh good, haha! :lol: It's kind of hard to tell when just reading text! And thank you. :)
Yeah, he wasn't everyone's cup of proverbial tea, but the nice part about the show is that it does evolve constantly. And even though I'll miss Matt, I'm really excited for Capaldi.

I'm excited for Capaldi too. I'm sure they'll find some way to screw him up though.

ERMAGERSH ISH SO AMASHIN

This is just... wow. Incredible. There's so much emotion in this piece I don't even know where to start. All their expressions are fantastic and incredibly realistic. The style is fantastic as well, as it adds a smooth and swirling effect to the normally chaotic regeneration sequence. And the fact that the style slightly mimics Van Gogh's is a pretty amazing yet subtle touch. Again, fantastic work. Keep it up!

IF OOOOOOONLYYYYYYYYYY IN MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY DREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEMS *bricked*

This is gonna make so many people cry

Ah, thanks for picking up on the Van Gogh thing! I wanted to do a tribute to one of my favorite Eleven episodes with this as well. I'm so glad you like the style too.

why would you

It almost made me cry; it's only fair.
