Doctor Who Fanart
 
What would the four main characters of the original Doctor Who TV series look like if they were reimagined and redesigned for a 21st century cartoon? That's the project I'm working on right now in my deviantART gallery.

This is the Doctor:

More information here.

Obviously I don't want to devote a whole thread to my stuff, which is why it's named "Doctor Who Fanart", so if there's anything you'd like to share, I guess this is the place.

Yes, he does. He looks like he's ready to give me a stern lecture.

Alright, I've just been high-concept'd. We need a Doctor Who cartoon series.

Well given that there is audio for the original few episodes of Dr. Who but very little actual moving pictures - but there are some stills - would be interesting to see someone animate it instead. Make it more straight up "Adult" animation style, no silly "boings!" and weird sound effect graphics, but do it like you're simply animating the original. Maybe tweak the sfx a tad just to make them 'pop' a bit and you could be onto something.

That's what they did with "The Invasion", isn't it?

Yep, Cosgrove-Hall (noted for "DangerMouse") did the animation.

(I need to purchase the infernal thing.)

Sincerely,

I was with you until now. That is NOT Ian Chesterton. Steven Taylor, maybe.

I know what you mean, and I agree to some extant, but you have to understand that I'm not just drawing these characters in a cartoon style. I'm trying to imagine what it would be like if one were to use the original Tardis gang for a cartoon show targeted at contemporary kids. In order to do that, some things have to be altered, every character has to find a distinct role and visual identity, and I can't just pretend that we're in the 1960's anymore.

Anyway, if my version of Ian looks off to you, I'm afraid you're not likely to like my Susan:
