“Oh Amy, I hear the song of your sadness.”A painting I spent many, many hours Livestreaming, this is my tribute to the magnificent Amy Pond, who inspired Vincent van Gogh in her adventures with the Doctor. I hope if Amy stayed with Vincent longer he might've painted something like this - something that showed her inner sadness, something he could empathize with. This work is part of my official Doctor Who series.
“I’m not sad.”
“Then why are you crying?”
Little disclaimer because someone made a nasty comment! I researched van Gogh paintings like Starry Night and his Sunflowers series for this work, but I'm not claiming to be an Impressionist nor am I saying I am anywhere near as skilled as the great painter himself... this piece is a conceptual work, done with my own artistic style and choices with some influence that's meant to recall van Gogh's style. Reference from the episode "Vincent and the Doctor" from Season 5.

Your command of color is brilliant.
When it comes to art one can argue successfully that the only real skill is weather or not you can convey the ideas or emotions you want. I would personally like to say that I think its good, however, if you ask me, Donas story was way more sad!
This is my favourite DW episode of all time - and this piece brought tears to my eyes.
One of my favourite episodes.
Amy by Van Gogh Great Idea and great artwork
who would ever say anything mean about this?! This is way amazing!
Omg I immediately thought "Karen Gillan" and "that episode with van Gogh" before I even read the description. Good work!
Beautiful tribute. You did a marvelous job capturing that "Van Gogh feel" I think, while remaining true to your own sense of colors - the way the swirls form that little teal/rust gradient is something else. Amy's hair is rendered beautifully, and the streaks of teal are a nice touch (although... they look a little like she has her hair colored! Nice dye job, Amy?) and tie her hair in with the rest of the piece.
Aw wow I love this
I especially love this one - such a poignant episode.
very beautiful ! The hair and flowers are amazing..
Beautiful idea. Love her expression
Wonderful and meaningful! I'm astonished! Masterpiece !
Wow nice ! All your galery is amazing ! Very colourfull !
Now this is awesome. Well done.
Very nicely imagined and rendered
OHMYGOSH! I love how you mirrored Gogh's technique to represent season 5 ep. 10
This is literally so amazing. You have a fan ^_^ .
Beautiful work ! Showing sadness with these colors is just awesome
OMG I SAW THAT EPISODE THIS IS BEAUTIFUL I'M CRYING
It'd be cool if you did a painting of Rory Williams protecting Amy Pond inside the Pandorica for almost 2,000 years!
I love the impressionistic background with the more realistic person. The colours help tie the two styles together quite well.
magnificent absolutely love this one!
First episode i saw, this is Amazing!
Oh my god! Gorgeous! ^_^
Ugh. This wasn't necessarily one of my favorite seasons, or even one of my favorite companions or Doctors, but that particular episode broke my heart into tiny little pieces. And this painting makes my heart break all over again. (In a good way.)
This is soo good! I like how you captured Van Gogh's style in the background
screw however made a nasty comment, this is an awesome picture and it's inspired by vincent van gogh not a forgery for crying out loud.
SRSLY THIS PIECE IS GORGEOUS.
SRSLY THIS PIECE IS GORGEOUS.
Can I just... Marry you or something ? This episode was one of my favourite and Van Gogh is one of the artists I like most and... Your drawing is like... Christmas. Except it's not snowing so it's even better.
aw I love this!
Actually I think you ARE just as good as Van Gogh. Your art inspires me just as much as his does.
Simply gorgeous! It truly gives a melancholic feeling and the sunflowers are lovely!
super cool job !!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful artwork! Tres Van Gogh-esque and then some!
Love it. You managed to combine one of my favourite episodes of Doto Who (vicent an the doctor) with one of my favourite characters of the series.
wow this is... T^T so good!
Awww, how appropriate! How good!
I love how you mix your style with the story. Amazing art!
this is just amazingly beautiful .
Best. Idea. For. Fanart. Ever. This is so...so amazing!
