Speaking of Perry White, this week’s sketch is of actor Lawrence Fishburne. I’ve been watching the new TV series “Hannibal” this spring since I am a big fan of (almost) all of Thomas Harris‘s books, but I am giving up on the show. Fishburne’s job portraying FBI boss Jack Crawford is one of the few good things about the series, however.

I am really swamped right now coloring a big job on the computer, so this week we are going to have to go with a quick digital warm up sketch of an easy target. Here’s Ian McKellen in his role of Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings and the recent first installment of the Hobbit films. This took about 12 minutes including the gray washes. I did a Gandalf for the SotW some years ago but never really liked that take… even though this is a loose, speed drawing I think the results are better.

The last of the Doctor sketches! Here is Matt Smith, the current Doctor and number eleven overall.
You can see the full series here, and my limited edition print will be ready to debut next month at Comic-Con, followed by sales here on the blog until they are gone. By the way, these sketches are just studies. . . the final illustration will likely have some different takes on the various Doctors (although I did like the way the last four turned out).

Better late than never today… still catching up from the big Reuben Weekend. Here he is, the one all you Whovians (at least you female ones) have been waiting for! The Tenth Doctor, as portrayed by David Tennant. This one is dedicated to my daughter and Doctor Who fan, Victoria! DT is her favorite.
One more to go…

This week I thought I’d do my Doctor Who series sketch digitally and record the process like I have done once or twice in the past, but I somehow messed up the video recording. Thus, I have simply a digital sketch and no video. Sorry about that. Oh, and here we have the eighth Doctor, as portrayed by Paul McGann.

This week our subject is the fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. Worry not, Whovians… I will eventually get to David Tennant, so stop asking.

We continue with our series of caricatures from Doctor Who? with the 4th doctor, Tom Baker. I was told by a few Whovians that the appropriate expression for Baker’s doctor should be a giant, goofy grin, but I like some of his bemused expressions better.
