This looks amazing!
I think I've seen either 3 or 4 of the different regenerations of the Master. :D

those are all the masters? are they in order? (kinda look like they would be but i'm fraid i don't know them all..when does the kid show up???)
Finkelmistcomics Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
as far as anyone really knows they are (1st Master) (13th Master) (14th Master) (15th and stolen life Master) ( Between the 16th and 28th with a new cycle from the Time Lords Master) ( Between the 17th and 29th cuz we just don't know Master) ( Between the 18th and 30th as well as the same face again for a final regeneration on the show Master)

I love this, there's plenty of group portraits of the doctor out there but if this isn't the first one of the master then it's certainly the best!

Love it for the classic Masters. The artwork's great but I can't stand the Simm incarnation. Delagdo's the original and best.
caldwellart Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010
Agreed,Delgado's the man.

I love how the old masters look so positively evil it's just so lacking subtlety it makes me want to laugh xD

Love the colors and shading you did!
Maki-Ubermach Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2010
Excellent values and love the color contrasts, looking very high class.

Only thing would be the Master in color, might have too much contrast in the details of the cheekbones, chin and brow line.

I don't think it was a mistake, I think it was an intentional portrayal and you might be satisfied with with it but as a viewer it does break the beautiful flow a little because it grabs so much attention from the nice job you did on the rest of him. Sometimes reference images when followed thoroughly don't always translate perfectly when illustrated but the high level of it as a whole is still wonderful!

One of the most enjoyable images I've seen in a long time and lovely detail.

well done!
Serbezaathemuffin Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009
I've been watching doctor who since 2005 when it newly began and I can say, in just my opinion. John Simm is the best master EVER! :D no doubt to me, not only because he's the best looking but he really pulls off the ookiness and madness :meow:

I really love the set out of this, it's like it's an advertisment for the master, and I love that you put in the master as a small child, kind o adds an innocence to the masters evil scary look. I also love the detail put in and the colour contrast :) amazing job (jeeze that was one long comment :aww:)

Multiple Master goodness.

You get a :+fav: just because The Master is fucking awesome.
bristrek Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009
Nice work! It won't let me do the critique thing cause I'm not a paying member but in the case of Simm, Ainsley and the movie Master there's something off around the eye area, upper cheek maybe. Not sure what it is. Actually, I think it's the bits where the cheek starts to go up and into the side of the eye.

But it is fantastic. Seriously, it's a great idea, good colour choices and you've gotten their expressions over well and in character. You can see what they're feeling.
