The Doctor's Cloud by SaraRichard The Doctor's Cloud by SaraRichard
So I was inspired by "The Snowmen" Christmas special of Doctor Who, probably the best Matt Smith episode in my opinion (I'm more a Tennant girl)

I loved Amy and Rory, but Clara is definitely awesome and adorable!

So the whole scene with the TARDIS in he clouds was just too much of a fun idea to pass up!

ACRYLIC ON PAPER
Add a Comment:
 
:iconartfrankmiami:
The description only says "Acrylic on paper" but I've never seen acrylic used this way. It's like a watercolor and your curves and transparencies are amazing. And you somehow make a color like yellow work for a night time scene. I always see night as whites and blues. Reminds me of Bahamian artist Alton Lowes' painting "Night Sun".

You captured the vapourousness(?) of the clouds in the studio bound DW scene perfectly. Then amongst all of this whimsy, you have these great solid lines sliding through it.

Additionally, the clouds themselves seem like steps upward to lead to your subject.

And as I said before, this was done fast. As I write this, it's been 3 1/2 days since the DW Christmas Special aired in the US. Great work!

I gave you a four on originality only because the idea and positioning came from the show, but how you presented it is all you, so 5s for the rest.
What do you think?

I love the colors, the light snowy draped sky blue, the light yellows. Very clean lines and definition in both the clouds and snow flacks. Love how you stylized the TARDIS herself, it certainly contains "the artists touch" and you made it your own, just as each Doctor has of their own TARDIS. Just love the whole work. <3

Clara is the best cx

I really love this one! Actually one of the ones I bought. I don't know how you make this stuff so beautiful, it looks like it should sparkle and the clouds should be getting me a bit wet. You're work is amazing, and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise!

I absolutely LOVE the style of art you have on this picture. It's positively beautiful, everything from the shapes you choose to how the colors layer lightly on top of one another. The blues and yellows in the piece really stand out and are effective.

I have to agree with you that "The Snowmen" was a fun episode and Clara is DEFINITELY really awesome. Looking forward to more of the new companion in March!!!

Gorgeous! I've been tempted myself to create a piece on this scene----it's just so inspiring! You've done a brilliant job with The Doctor's Cloud ! Definitely one of my favourite Doctor Who pieces, and one of the best I've seen in a while!

This concept is one of the many, many reasons why I love the Smith era of Who so much more than the mundane Tennant era. A return to a properly eccentric, quirky and alien Doctor. Lovely art here too.

I agree that you should make this painting available as a print, if not on dA, then have the painting scanned in high rez and printed so you can sell it on Etsy. This has already gotten a lot of "press" among the fandom via FB, I think it would sell well. Just my :twocents:
