“This was a mistake.”
“Why? I look like her, I think like her, I sound like her...”
“But you’re not her! Look, I can turn you on with the press of a button, but I can’t... I can’t turn on her soul.”
This was inspired by my latest obsession with Kamen Rider and a scrapped idea from Moffat with the Ninth Doctor, ret-conning Rose as an experiment from Nine to create the ideal companion. I twisted it a little to make it Ten with Time Lord Victorious vibes, trying to bring Rose back after being separated. But the moment he does it, he realizes how wrong it was.
She makes him feel safe and her lap was so comfy, he just... happened to fall asleep during the movie.
Hehe... I know, I’m terrible.
Last month’s big project for me was something very special. The two people portraying the Tenth Doctor and the Thirteenth Doctor/Rose are Ryan Jones and Essay Hood. He always cosplayed Ten and she was always Rose... but Ryan, unfortunately, passed too soon. Shortly thereafter, Jodie Whittaker was announced as Thirteen and Essay looks SO much like her. It was like Ryan was reaching out and saying “It’s okay. YOU’RE the Doctor now.” So when I saw the comic cover (originally drawn by Giorgia Sposito and Arianna Florean), I wanted to paint it as Ryan and Essay because it was like they were reaching across the time streams to find each other. The second painting is based on a photo by Bryan Humphrey. They may be my favorite couple I’ve never met. ^_^
