Designing the Thirteenth Doctor
This is my submission for a 'design the Thirteenth Doctor' thread on the site freakangels.com. I haven't drawn anything in years, but the range of the submissions made me want to make a contribution (I particularly like the more outre ones).
Tilda Swinton as the Doctor is something I’d kill to see, so to start with that's what I tried to draw, in Orlando mode - but I couldn’t quite make it work. So instead I went for Toshiro Mifune (think of his gruff persona in Kurosawa’s Yojimbo and High and Low especially) in a Brighton Rock-style suit and patent DMs. Sort of thirties-punk.
