The Turn of the Universe by alicexz The Turn of the Universe by alicexz
"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!

Saw this in my favorites again after so long! I just want to say you captured the whimsy of the Doctor and his infinite capacity for travel. The wonder of the universe!

This is incredible! Do you intend on making it available as a print? (Or is it already available to buy as a print and I just can't find it? Haha)

This really brings out the 10th Doctor's more vulnerable side I think. It just shows how he has so much character, but with it, he also has this amazing sense of loneliness.
