Re: Doctor Who Fanart

Susan with what appears to be a sonic screwdriver. That should negate a certain percentage of her "perils". And, if we can assume her boots are "sturdy", that should prevent many a twisted ankle. Looks like this Susan won't be a constant "damsel in distress".

I know you're going for a "contemporary" look, hence Susan's "modern" wardrobe, which IS neat, BTW. I'm just reminded of a two panel cartoon illustrated in the Doctor Who Magazine years ago. "Retelling" the opening evenys of "An Unearthly Child", Barbara and Ian ponder Susan's strangeness. One asks if it's her unusual knowledge of historial events. The other replies, "No, it's the fact we're in 1963 and she's wearing a Walkman and fashion from the 1980s!" (I thinks it's the unkempt hair that reminded me of that strip.)

Sincerely,

Bill

Thank you for the kind words.

While I was drawing this, I realized that the Susan I liked was the Susan from "An Unearthly Child", a girl full of spunk and energy, with an air of alien bizareness about her, which is why I tried to draw the 2013 equivalent of that. In later stories, the character evolved and quickly became a generic "damsel in distress", which I didn't find quite as interesting.

Indeed! It's certainly different, and daring, and many other things. I can't quite connect to it, however, it's much too elliptic for my taste.

If you have not seen it, I think you would really enjoy the "unaired pilot" cut of "An Unearthly Child" (which is available as part of the "In the Beginning" DVD box set. Ford plays Susan as even more "alien" and with a bit of a "stately" air. As she talks about her grandfather and herself (once Barbara and Ian have barged into the TARDIS), she hints that she is royalty and then sits upon that ornate wooden chair like she were a queen.

Alas, as was discussed in a round-robin discussion about the first serial (that I saw on YouTube just this weekend), Ford laments that Sydney Newman approached her and kindly requested she "take it down a notch". Apparently, Newman wanted Susan to be the character with whom children and young teens could relate, so she devolved into someone of a "scream queen" (er, princess).

Continuing that stream of thought, Ford lamented that her character didn't have the chance to "grow" as she would have enjoyed Susan "falling" for Ian. What?! I never heard that one, but it came straight from Ford's mouth!

Sincerely,

Bill

Anyway, if my version of Ian looks off to you, I'm afraid you're not likely to like my Susan:
Actually, TMM, I think this is right on.

And that's why. Still don't dig your version of Ian, though. Sorry.

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.
With that statement in mind, here is a digital attempt at Tom Baker using Poser.



And, no, I am not thrilled with the scarf. The mapping is primitive and results in stretching.

(This is an old piece, anyway.)
