“Not The One You Were Expecting” - Digital Oil Painting
I had a request to paint Bobby as the Doctor and I loved the idea of it. I rather like how my interpretation turned out, he seems very 8th Doctor to me. I gave him the trans-temporal sonic screwdriver because I love the design of it. The title is a reference to “The Night of the Doctor” when the 8th Doctor appears and says, “I’m a Doctor. Though probably not the one you were expecting.”
In my vision, Bobby!Doctor is working on something at his console (the lower right picture) when the Tardis door opens and in walks Belle (the picture on the left). He whips around, pointing the sonic at her (the top right picture), and demands to know how she got in. She explains, a bit confused, that she saw this blue box sitting on the hill and got curious and the door was open. As she is marveling over the ‘bigger on the inside’ time ship, the Doctor lifts an eyebrow toward the ceiling. If the Tardis opened the door for Belle, then Belle must be special. He instantly whirls her up into his life, determined to find out just what makes her so different that the Tardis would take a liking to her instantly, and Belle, fascinated by this strange man and his stranger life, goes along for the ride.
This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.
