I probably should watch me some Dr Who some time. Especially now I've run out of BSG

Woooah those are quite stunning. I don't even like Dr Who and I could be tempted to buy this comic.
Nice work!

Amazing. Next time I run into you I'm gonna poke you to draw me Rose and Ten, and then I'll wait like two years for it but it'll be worth it I know.

Likenesses take time honestly. ( As you can see these are heavy reffed photoshop heavy as that's the way they want em )

But I can try quick sketches!

Oh I know, and the odds of me actually running into you sometime soon-ish to ever again are so one in a million that it's hilarious. BUT that beings said these are wonderful and I love the Martha stuff completely!

I haven't really watched much of the new Dr. Who stuff. But I gotta say... I think these are some of my favorites of yours so far. Very good looking stuff. Great expressions!

Followed over from doctorwho. Those are absolutely gorgeous. Were they prints or posters, I'd snatch them up in a flash (which is actually quite a large compliment as I generally don't buy wall art of my fandoms).

Are you starting to trace photos now? Looks like these were traced from actual photo reference. Not criticizing or saying it's a bad thing. A lot of pros do it to save time and capture certain expressions and realism in a quick way. But yeah, these looks a lot more photorealistic than your usual work...which in an odd way I kind of don't like these as much.

When you do licensed comics based on actors, that's how it goes.

Heavy photo reffing ( at least for me ) is the exact opposite of what you are saying. It in no way saves me time and usually makes things more stiff, rather than helping expressions.

They're photorealistic because they have to be basically. It's not like my creator owned work.
