Ancient Songs of Boe-kind by MidnightReinor
Ancient Songs of Boe-kind
I just had to do this when it popped into my head.

So I'm rewatching the New-Who, and get to the second episode (technically the first) of the second season, New Earth.  I've always loved the scene between the Doctor and the Face of Boe when he's sleeping and the Doctor says: "I'm here.  I look a bit different, but it's me; it's the Doctor." 
BUUUTT, knowing the true identity of the Face of Boe while I watched it made me rethink a couple of things--especially the "ancient songs" he telepathically sings in Novice Hame's head.  Seeing as it's the year 5,000,026, I thought something from the 1940's would be hilarious to hear instead of some primal, ethereal chorus.
Plus, I mean, that's just his style to sing a Sinatra crooner, right? :la:

Also, this is only my second attempt at using a digital sketchpad (generously loaned to me by a dear friend).  IT'S SO AWESOME THANK YOU

Old God by MidnightReinor
Old God
"I walked away from the last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me! I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man! I've watched universes freeze and creations burn. I've seen things you wouldn't believe. I have lost things you will never understand! And I know things. Secrets that must never be told. Knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze!!"
-The Doctor : The Rings of Akhaten

So I guess after all that blue in my "Caverns of the Satan Pit" painting, I wanted to do something with a little more warmth in it. <sarcasm> I loved the image of the Doctor facing off against something so massive and unbeatable as the "god" of Akhaten, AND THEN PROCEEDS TO BATTLE IT WITH THE ACCUMULATED PAIN AND SENTIMENT OF HIS ONE THOUSAND (plus) YEAR LIFETIME.  The 11th Doctor isn't my favorite, but man this episode was awesome.  I removed the walls of the temple (Pyramid of the Sun Singers of Akhat) in the painting in order to expand it, and changed the contrast in the sun more to my liking. And yes, I did paint every single one of the asteroids in the Rings individually. No shortcuts.

24" x 12" canvas, with acrylic paint.

Caverns of the Satan Pit
"But if this is the original, does that make it real? Does that make it the actual devil, though?" 
"Well, if that's what you want to believe. Maybe that's all the devil is, in the end. An idea."
(The cable stops. The Doctor is dangling, mid-air in black nothingness.)
"That's it. That's all we've got. You getting any sort of readout?" 
"Nothing. Could be miles to go yet. Or, could be thirty feet. No way of telling. ...I could survive thirty feet..."
"Oh no you don't. I'm pulling you back up."
(She reverses the drum. The Doctor stops it.) 
"What're you doing?" 
"If you bring me back, then we're just going to sit there and run out of air. I've got to go down." 
"But you can't. Doctor, you can't."
"Call it an act of faith." 
"But...I don't want to die on my own." 
"I know."
"If the others gets back in touch, if you talk to Rose, just tell her...Tell her I...  ...Oh, she knows."
(He unclips the last carabineer, and falls into the blackness.)

I started this last year and finally finished when I got off school.  I just absolutely fell in love with the environment and tone of "The Impossible Planet" and "The Satan Pit" when I first saw it.  The bluish atmosphere was the hardest to recreate, but doing a dark wash over the canvas before painting was kinda fun.  I should up the orange on their suits and the light on the ground, but I'll get to that later.
Done on canvas with acrylics.

Best. Fracking. Show. Ever.

Snowy Falconer by MidnightReinor

The final for my class.  Stayed up until 3 in the morning to get this thing done on time.  Blech.  The shmutz in the background was a paaaaaaaain.  I'm happy with the face and the cloak though.  Inevitably, I did the fun stuff first and saved the branches for last.
16"x20" with graphite and a blending stump.
