The Turn of the Universe by alicexz The Turn of the Universe 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:… &… (some sneak peeks in there too...) Prints will also be sold at the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Celebration Event at London ExCel on November 22nd-24th!

"He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And... he's wonderful." 
I was commissioned by Big Chief Studios to do some more Doctor Who art! This is a portrait of the Tenth Doctor as played by David Tennant, and is a part of my official Doctor Who poster series. I really wanted to continue my ongoing theme of the Doctor + wonder, which began with "The Roar of Our Stars" piece I did last year.

This painting took many many hours (and tears) and many reference images... total painting time... I lost count... but I finished it sometime in August 2013. Painted in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Cintiq tablet. Reblog on Tumblr! Will be posting Nine and a special 50th Anniversary painting shortly too! Thank you BCS & BBC for this awesome project!

Certainly a beautiful piece of art. When I see it, I can feel the wonder that invades one's soul when looking above, in search of answers, hope, and life.
