A free request for ~LadyMiir for helping me out :3 She requested the 10th Doctor from Doctor Who, David Tennant. I got really excited by the request, 'cause I've been wanting to do this type of painting for quite a while xD (I have a whole list of people I want to paint, heh). I took it as a challenge and did the best I could, even if the resemblance isn't as strong as I wish it were. Thank you again!

No specific ref used (I just grabbed a whole bunch of pictures of him so I could learn his face...)

The bowtie's not entirely correct, but still. I can assume he was trying something new and didn't entirely like it.

I was told way after that some of the refs I used were from an episode where he poses as some school teacher, and does wear a bowtie x'D Sorry.

Ohh, I love this, though, honestly, the likeness to David Tennant (10th Doctor) isn't too strong, since at first I thought it was Matt Smith (11th Doctor). Plus, Smith always wore the bow ties, coz' you know, "I wear bowties now. Bowties are cool." Tennant was the suit-with-longcoat-and-sneakers guy. (With brainy specs when he wanted to look smart.)

But I do enjoy the texture in here alot. Especially the hair.

I'm so sorry OTL the refs I had must not've been good (he had a bowtie in a few of them...).

Oh, it's okay. (Still like dat hair) Hmm, well then it was probably from one of those episodes with parties or something.

His hair tends to be an unkept mess that looks better that way anyways. Often has a pinstripe suit or a blue one with a brown trench-coat, a regular tie, and sneakers/converses. Yeah, it varies at times, but I think ever since 4 (Tom Baker) started doing that ridiculously long rainbow scarf thing, outfits started to be associated with a particular incarnation, so yea.

I don't know what you're refs look like, but there's always places like google and tumblr, non? :meow:

Yeah, that's actually where I got my refs xD It was odd, though, 'cause he just looked so different in every picture I found, so it was kinda tough.

Personally, I'd do practice sketches first, just to see if I can get the likeness down. But that's just me. As long as I can get certain key points down, I suppose it's all good. I don't really -consciously- think about this things too much, but I think one of the biggest reasons I first thought it was Smith (other than the bowtie) was likely the nose and perhaps the length of the face... :? (maybe, maybe not)

These may not be the best references, and it's not all Doctor Who, but you can compare 10 and 11, at the very least: [link], [link]

David Tennant is the 10th Doctor... You here have drawn the 11th... Matt Smith is the one with the bow tie, which you've drawn here. [link] David had the trench coat and suit. [link]

You did a good job of the 11th Doctor but... you let let my down Pai. ;~; *is an incredibly HUGE Doctor Who fan*

applePAI Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Student Filmographer
Yes /D Yes he is the 10th doctor and I am aware that the 11th Doctor is Matt Smith but I did not draw Matt Smith (at least, not intentionally...);;;; I know little about Doctor Who, so I don't know about wardrobes, but I just went off of the photographs of Tennant that I had... OTL I worked really hard to make it look like him, guess I failed there (I did try to make sure that some of his obvious characteristics were there, like his funky ear shape and his chin);; I'm really sorry I let you down.

I'm just really confused, mostly because David doesn't have the bow tie, side swept hair or brown waist coat. This is a wonderful picture of Matt though. x'D

Oh now I see where you got the bow tie from, that's the episode where he becomes a human school teacher and has no idea who he is. My bad. ^^; It really threw me for a loop there because the bow tie is Matt's thing. Plus is didn't help that when I saw the picture on my laptop I was in a room full of other Doctor Who nerd fans and they were all 'That's not David, ra ra ra...'

Probably because I have seen Smith's series more than Tennant's and so I know how to tell the differences from Smith more? |D;

applePAI Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Student Filmographer
I dunno. I'd only really known about Smith, and he just has these facial characteristics that I think have really high contrast to Tennant? I guess it's just me. I was actually afraid this would come out looking like Richard Hammond, if anything.

The face maybe, but the outfit and hair is definitely Matt's.

I dunno. Their hairstyles always seemed kinda similar to me. And I've seen Tennant in an outfit like that before.

KirasDarkLight Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I've seen him in brown too, but from the angle he's positioned at the hair is very Matt. Plus he's wearing a BOW TIE. That is Matt's signature item, just as David's is the trench coat.

Though Pai just showed me that she got one ref from the ONE episode where he becomes a human school teacher, and the ONE episode where he wears a bow tie. I feel a bit out of place now. Cause that was the thing that threw me off the most.

:iconnaivespaceman:
NaiveSpaceman Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Well I haven't really seen much of Tennants series and I've seem more of Smith so I never really got what was supposed to be his signature thing. The teacher episode may be one of the only ones I saw, dunno. Just remember him wearing a bowtie once.

KirasDarkLight Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yeah David wears a bow tie in the episode called 'Family of Blood' and that's the only time, because he's hiding from an alien family in human form. But yeah, other wise it's the big trench coat.
