I AM THE DOCTOR! by IridescentCatalyst I AM THE DOCTOR! by IridescentCatalyst
PLEASE READ!

I beg of you: excuse the image quality and try to focus on the concept. I don't really know how to effectively digitize my traditional works, so this is the best I can do with my phone camera and some editing.

I'm Matt Nguyen. I've lived for about seventeen years and not all of them were good. I've made many mistakes and it's about time I did something about that.

Yes, I know this isn't perfect, but like I said, try to look past the imperfections. There's ink smudges and various mess-ups throughout the image, but it came out alright. I think I'm just being too insecure about my art, hehe, as I know where I messed up because I was the one who made the artwork.

Overall, this took about twenty hours total in art class, spread out over the span of about five weeks - forty-five minutes daily, five days a week. It's the first artwork I've made in a long time, and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. This will hopefully be the start of an art "regeneration" for me. Therefore, I hope you guys like it.

Here's a verbal description of the picture:

Each letter represents an incarnation of the Doctor from Doctor Who, including their the items they're known for.

I - First Doctor: monocle, tie, cane

A - Second Doctor: recorder, 500 year diary
M - Third
 Doctor: sonic screwdriver, test tubes, "U.N.I.T."

T - Fourth Doctor:
 hat, scarf, bag of jelly babies
H - Fifth Doctor:
 hat, celery, cricket bat and ball
E - Sixth Doctor: 
rainbow umbrella

D - Seventh Doctor:
 hat, question mark umbrella
O - Eighth Doctor:
 T.A.R.D.I.S. key, fob watch
C - War Doctor:
 "NO MORE," The Moment (as the "big red button")
T - Ninth Doctor:
 banana, sonic screwdriver
O - Tenth Doctor:
 glasses, 3-D glasses, Converse shoes
R - Eleventh Doctor: 
Stetson, fez, sonic screwdriver, bow tie, Amy's glasses, glasses, fish fingers and custard

! - Twelfth Doctor:
 eyebrows, red interior of vest, spoon

Yeah, I know Twelve should probably have a guitar and sunglasses, but I made this pre-series nine.

Which Doctor/letter do you like the most in this picture? What about in general? Please comment, Whovians!

I personally like Eleven ("R"). He's my favorite Doctor, and since he thought many things were "cool," illustrating that was a blast.

Do you have a printer with a scanner? That's what I use to upload my drawings. The quality is better than taking a picture with even a good camera.

Unfortunately not. I know the digital picture would be much better with a scanner. Thanks for the recommendation, though.

Thanks! It bothers me when things aren't clean, so I used a ruler to make sure that this was.

I might in the future.

As a fan of Doctor Who, I love this and i think its perfect.:D (Big Grin) As an artist i still love it and think it's really good and detailed. You did a great job on the shading and i think my favorite is the first 'T' that represents the Fourth Doctor. In general, as in the show my favorite would be Eleven.

I have to say this is pretty impressive and I love the amount of detail and thought you put into this. I like how each letter represents the Doctor in various way. I haven't watch much of Doctor Who but I like David Tennant's Doctor as he was interesting and charismatic.

Best whovian pic ever.  I'd say David Tennant (10th) or the 8th Doctor.
