Eleven is for Love by FireFiriel Eleven is for Love by FireFiriel
Obviously, this goes with my Five is for Riches picture [link] and the title comes from the same fortunetelling rhyme. Like the other picture, I got the urge to do this in the enthusiasm from an awesome climactic episode; with this one it was The Wedding of River Song. But unlike the other picture, I didn't have the opportunity to finish it within that initial burst of inspiration. I had intended to have it ready before the current season started, because it really is all about the last season, but it took the current season starting to get me enthusiastic enough again to finish it! Ah well. I am liking this season so far. They are laying something very powerful on very thick and I wonder where they could be going with it?... :excited:

This is picture I talked about in that To the Moon picture [link] ; how I got a better likeness of Rory in that one, which I did in a few minutes, than in this one, where I spent a long time and looked at a bunch of references. But I am pleased with the likeness I got of the Doctor here.

One of the reasons it was hard to get myself to get back to work on this is because it had to be colored pencil. I don't use those nearly as much as I used to and find myself a bit at a loss with them. That and they're so messy! I didn't remember them being this messy! But those are some gorgeous colors and intensity they have. I ended up using not too many colors for this, for one thing to make things simpler, but also because I really really love that transition from gold to indigo involving red-browns and purples that I used for the stars. I got the idea from one of the worlds in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

How does the rhyme go? I'm super interested.

As long as you don't steal my idea and draw pictures like this with those titles for the other Doctors, 'cuz I'm gonna do more! :XD:

One is for bad news,
Two is for mirth,
Three is a wedding,
Four is a birth,
Five is for riches,
Six is a thief,
Seven is a journey,
Eight is for grief,
Nine is a secret,
Ten is for sorrow,
Eleven is for love,
And Twelve is for joy tomorrow.

I think you did a great job of capturing Dr. Song there. She looks so very much like herself that when I saw her I heard "Hello, Sweetie." :giggle:
The stars are just beautiful! You did a great job on those, too. :nod:

Okay, I love this :D You did get 11 down well! And River's hair :laughing: The poses and body language are all so appropriate for the characters, and make it very romantic and cozy, especially with how warm and dark space looks!
I've gotta say, I can't get over how crazy the dynamic these four have :XD: You'd think with all the complexity and strangeness from all the timey-wimey weirdness, that they'd be so messed up, but they aren't. They've come out so sweet :aww:
I really like how you used the purple to shade for all the warmness rather than a more blue color. Still brings a hint of coolness, but keeps it much more cozy.

Thanks!
Yeah, and it's quite extraordinary, with most companions they spend some time with the Doctor and it's a very crucial part of their lives, but with most of them it's just a part and they have the rest of their lives separate from that. With these folks, pretty much their whole lives are involved with him. Pretty neat.
Thanks again! I do like that purple.

You're welcome!
It is! I mean, at the end of the Christmas special, it really hit me... "Aww they're like his family ohmygosh ;___; " It's so different from what he's had, but it's so awesome. But that also makes it more sad!

Indeed, they are his family, the first he's had since Susan! Well, Jenny was sorta, but that was weird. But it's funny, if you said the premise as it stands now: A show about a couple who travel through space and time with their son-in-law. :giggle:
