No words can discribe how amazing this is! I mean, if I had your hand to draw, I would never stop. I mean, the detail work is just phenomenal and it's overall amazing! You really captured the personality and paaearance of the Tenth Doctor. The background of the telephone booth/trasporter is just amazing. All in all it is just magnificent! But I do have one critcism though, his eyebrows are a little triangular. Now I get it that he is raising his eyebrows but, and if I remember correctly, his eyebrows aren't that, what's the word I'm looking for, pointy. But it's amazing work!

I like Matt Smith better. Sorry just a statement. Artwork is amazing. Not going to critique though sorry. I'm better with critiquing fanfictions. You wouldn't want to hear the critique anyway. It would just be me gushing.

Every night , someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,

At least fifteen people in this world love you.

The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you

There are at least two people in this world that would die for you

You mean the world to someone.

Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever,something good comes from it.

When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.

Always remember the compliments you've received.

Forget the rude remarks.

So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list including the person that sent it to you.

Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you.

Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm tomorrow, it could be anywere . Get ready for the biggest shock in your life

Do not break this chain. Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes !!

Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! <3 remember that your loved
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 😉
= Fight for you 
= Respect you
= Involve you
= Encourage you
= Need you 
= Deserve you 
= Save you

Send this to all your friends & me if I'm one......If you get 4 back you are liked but if you 
get 7 back then you are seriously loved 😊 Heart

The only way i know its a painting is the shape of the highlights on his face, but its not like i could do better

That is simply amazing. I thought it was a picture at first!

This is amazing and though you say its a painting I will be refusing to believe it. It looks extremely realistic and you have done an amazing job not only painting it, but capturing the moment and the essence of the 10th doctor.

My favorite Doctor! Love this!
cleverjellybean Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Yes DAVID TENNANT !! This is a perfect symbolic piece with him discreetly holding the screwdriver and well-captured quirk. Too bad we can't enlarge to see the details x)
