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 and at 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!

The look on his face - you captured his character perfectly. And as with all your art, the whole piece is just breath-taking.

Hi. I don't know if your aware of this, but someone has used this upload in a YouTube video for the song 'Oh My Love' by 'The Score'.

It was used in the video by a YouTuber called 'The Grand White Fox' www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mkqqU…

Smiled when I saw this.
To quote the Doctor :
"Oh snow!--I love snow!"

I know it's not snow, but I just thought of that when I looked at it.

1. Why would he erase their signature?
2. Why would he upload someone else's art under his name?

Does his crediting the artist change the fact that he did the above actions?? Personally, I do not think so, but that may be just me.
