The Lonely God by alicexz The Lonely God by alicexz

This is officially approved artwork, licensed by the BBC!

Print editions will be available online in the near future, read the announcement from Big Chief Studios: www.bigchiefstudios.co.uk/comi… & idlehands1.blogspot.com/2013/1… Prints will also be sold at the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Celebration Event at London ExCel on November 22nd-24th! HAPPY 50th!!

"Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame."
Final Doctor Who art commission from Big Chief Studios! Portrait of the (as of right now, still mysterious) War Doctor, played by the esteemed John Hurt. Part of my official Doctor Who poster seriesbut as you can see has quite a different, darker feel than the others; I was going for an intense, fiery battlefield sort of thing. The theme ended up tying in quite nicely with the mini-sode The Night of the Doctor.

Reference photos were provided by the BBC. They also chose this title "The Lonely God" out of a list I gave them (I was given no info on the special episode aside from the refs) so take from that what you will. :] We'll all find out what he's about in less than 24 hours anyway!! 

Painted in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Cintiq tablet; some textures and fire stock from cgtextures. Thank you SO MUCH TO EVERYONE for your immense support on this series of mine. I was absolutely thrilled to get this opportunity, and after all my struggling, quite proud of the resulting set!! THANK YOU GUYS!!

I love the colours in this portrait- somehow it makes the Doctor's expression all the more bittersweet.

Great job!

These posters are all so incredibly amazing! I'm curious: did you come up with the title "The Lonely God", or did you get it from somewhere else? I ask because the title reminds me of a quote from Christopher Paolini's "Brisingr" (the reason why I got into "Doctor Who").
