Ok, here it is, my final drawing project of the summer.

I wanted to celebrate the companions, the heart and soul of Doctor Who really, by thinking of all the important traits needed to be a good companion to the Doctor / Audience. I tried to include as many New and Classic companions as I can but I apologize if I missed your favorite one! I guess I forgot Rose, my B, I’d put her in the Braveheart category.

I hope you all enjoy.

Doctor Who and the Muppets, what better combination is there?

ZOE: How can we get to the device?

DOCTOR: Yes, that’s the problem.

JAMIE: Doctor, I’ve just had an idea.

DOCTOR: Shush a minute Jamie, I’m trying to think.

JAMIE: Yes I know you are, but-

ZOE: Oh Jamie.

JAMIE: Will you listen to me. Now there’s a dead easy way to get that device thing.

ZOE: Really?

JAMIE: Yes, now listen. You said they were going to drop it down the centre hole, the one they’re drilling outside here.

DOCTOR: Yes.

JAMIE: Well it’s simple isn’t it? All we’ve got to do is dig a tunnel through from here to the borehole and catch the seed device thing on it’s way down. Well, it was just an idea.

DOCTOR: But Jamie, it’s a brilliant idea! It’s so simple only you could have thought of it.

JAMIE: Oh.
                               *Jamie considers what the Doctor just said*

JAMIE: Eh ?!

So. Okay. I did something I never thought I would ever do… I painted some ponies.

As a gift to my friends Paul & Jen, one’s a diehard Doctor Who fan the other is a diehard My Little Pony fan. Through the miracle of watercolor and alternate dimensions, this gift materialized.

I’m pretty happy with the likenesses drawn on the TARDIS crew (though I wish I did a bit better on Zoey).  And I am not an Equestranaut… so if there’s some sacred visual rule of My Little Pony that I disgracefully rendered, cut me a little slack, please. :)  it’s not my forte.  Thanks to infinityjoe for the insight. I am happy with the cartoonish likeness on the pony characters though.  And the colors worked out pretty well, I think.
