The Roar of Our Stars by alicexz The Roar of Our Stars by alicexz

EDIT 03/07/13: You can now buy a print in the official BBC Shop!

EDIT 01/26/13: Good news for those who have been asking about open-edition "The Roar of Our Stars"/"The Song of Your Sadness" prints! The two pieces have been licensed by the BBC and are now both available as official Doctor Who art prints!! Purchases can be made from Big Chief Studios Limited!

"Look at the sky. It's not dark and black and without character... the black is, in fact, deep blue. And over there: lighter blue, and blowing through the blues and blackness the winds swirling through the air and then shining, burning, bursting through: the stars! And you see how they roar their light. Everywhere we look, the complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes."
This work is part of my official series of Doctor Who poster-paintings based on the newer seasons. This one is of the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith. Originally commissioned by KLCx, thank you! Ref image from the 2010 Christmas Special.

Thank you all so much for your overwhelming support and comments on this painting! :heart: Makes a great phone wallpaper according to a lot of people, apparently (no need to ask for personal use like that, just please do not remove my watermark.)

Kindly reblog on Tumblr!

I don't know what to say about this. It all just is so fitting, the feel of it, the subject (I'm so vague, sorry), the title-- It just kinda gives me a feeling. A good feeling- like I am flying though the stars, or maybe they're falling past me... I have always loved astronomy and outer space. All of your Doctor Who masterpieces bring me right out there with those stars. It's the most amazing thing.
