The companions sketches are on hold for a few weeks, so in the meantime I’ll be posting bigger and better pics of some of the Doctors I drew for my “Infinite Doctor” piece earlier this year.
First up, Robert Holmes (for my money, DW’s best writer ever) as one of the “Morbius Doctors”. And just for a goof, a TARDIS control room concept for him that I collaged together in about 20 seconds. :)
Companion sketch #72: Jackson Lake and Rosita. Originally they weren’t going to be in this series (I’m skipping most of the “one off” companions), but I remembered I had an old commission piece that included them- so it just took a few tweaks and a quick color job to make them part of this.
And now a little bit of bad news- this is the last companion sketch for a few weeks, since I’m busy with some new official gigs and have two big conventions coming up (Alamo City Comic Con this weekend, and Wizard Austin the week after). BUT… I have some daily Who content that I’ll be posting here in the meantime- some old stuff that’s never really been seen online. More on that tomorrow. ;)
Jonathan Pryce as the Master. I drew this a few years back for the background portraits of “alternate” Masters in my “Past Masters” group shot.
Companion sketch #71: Beatrix “Trix” MacMillan. Based on a Mike Collins illustration in DWM #341, with the costume taken from a description in one of the EDAs. A lot of folks online seem to have “cast” her as HUSTLE’s Kelly Adams (con artist- makes sense), so I ran with that. It’s a little weird though, when you consider her character’s brother in that was Fitz’s voice actor, Matt Di Angelo! :D
Companion sketch #70: 4th Doctor companion Sharon Davies, from the early days of Doctor Who Magazine (back when it was “Doctor Who Weekly”).
Companion sketch #69: Jo Grant (later Jo Jones)
Weird drawing this one- I’m so used to depicting her as Iris. :D
Companion sketch #68: the Doctors’ new companions from Titan Comics- Gabriella “Gabby” Gonzalez and Alice Obifune.
Companion sketch #67: Okay, he’s not actually a companion (yet), but… here’s Danny Pink.
Btw, wasn’t “Listen” great? My favorite regular episode in years.
Companion sketch #66: the 8th Doctor’s adopted daughter, Miranda Dawkins
Companion sketch #65: Erimem and Antranak
Yes, I kind of bungled Antranak’s legs. They won’t be visible in the final collage these sketches are for though, so I didn’t dwell on it. ;)
Speaking of finishing things- this marks the last Big Finish companion on the list. Unless of course they announce a new one in the next few weeks- which is entirely possible with the speed of their output. :D
