Opening The Closet Door
In case you were wondering (particularly those of you unfamiliar with Doctor Who, Matt Smith is dressed as the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant. This was quite tricky for me, because in addition to a character design more complex than my usual, I had to draw Matt Smith’s facial structure with David Tennant’s appearance, as this Matt Smith was still Matt Smith back then. It wasn’t easy. I did enjoy switching the screwdrivers, as the Tenth Doctor used a different design.
The reason for this is because Jorocks would have moved in back in 2009, which was before the Tenth Doctor regenerated into the Eleventh Doctor (the regeneration was on Jan. 1, 2010). Even though our Matt wasn’t quite as obsessed with Doctor Who as he is now, he still was obsessive enough to have David Tennant’s outfit and screwdriver. (Incidentally, I saw the actual outfits worn by both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors when I was in Cardiff.)
I used Rich Morris’s drawings from his fan comic The Ten Doctors as a reference to draw Matt as Ten. His is an absolutely brilliant fan fic, both in story and art, that you should definitely take the time to read if you like Doctor Who (and that’s coming from someone who typically dislikes fan fic as a rule).
