An art blog. Sort of. I also reblog stuff sometimes.

You'll probably see a few things about Myst, Silent Hill, Hannibal, Pokemon and more.

Currently there's a lot of posts about Doctor Who since that fandom grabbed me by the hand in December 2013 and said "RUN".

 

(pointing at Eric Roberts) What the HELL is wrong with this guy?

I know you've probably already gotten, like, several hundred of these, but your art is phenomenal. Watercolor is so hard to control but you make it look perfect every time! I adore your style and I'm even happier that you're part of the small group who know about Eight and Charley. Not to mention all of your works that aren't based off screen caps are always hilarious or heartbreaking or both and I can't get enough! You have no idea how happy it makes me that a fan artist like you exists.

You have no idea how hard I’m blushing right now. Actually I’ve been blushing since I’ve first read this message and it was like 40 minutes ago. Thank you very much for stopping by and writing these kind words! ♥

I’m glad I’ve discovered watercolor last year, before that I used to make most of my pictures with pencils, photoshop or acrylic paint, and watercolor is a lot quicker (and also a lot more practical, it can easily fit inside your pockets or your bag). It allows a lot more freedom.

And no, I haven’t got several hundreds of messages like this one, probably less than twelve so far, I didn’t count. Some people hide nice comments in their reblog tags (and I love it!), but very few send me actual notes. I never know how to answer to this type of message either, my heart always flutters a little when I receive one xD

Small watercolor paintings based on screencaps from the Doctor Who episode Gridlock (Series 3, episode 3).











I love this episode. It’s true that nothing much happens in it, but I adore its setting and its characters.
How does Tennant’s face even work?
Maybe it’s the ’90s kid in me speaking, but I really like this kind of dystopian polluted future (science fiction kept throwing this at us back in the days, glad to see the trope is still used).

I’ve always had the same mobile phone since I was 16 years old (so yeah, roughly ten years ago), and it was still working well, but I got a new one yesterday. Since I never ever changed the first one and never used my customer points either, the new one was extremely cheap (20€). And of course I saw a lot of people using smartphones around me, but I’ve never used one myself, so this feels like futuristic technology to me.

Stuff I said about the phone so far (read: stuff that made my beloved laugh his ass off): "I added one of my drawings as a background, look! LOOK!" "There’s the Internet on this thing… like, the real Internet" "It’s like a tiny tiny computer, it’s so cool" "WAIT WAIT I can have groups for my contacts and… pictures? What for??" "It would be better with a tiny keyboard" "IT CAN TAKE PICTURES" "do you think I can put, like, real sounds or music as ringtones?" "SEND ME A MESSAGE SO I CAN HEAR IF THE LINKING BOOK SOUND WORKS"

You know what, Barbara, Tlotoxl can say whatever he wants: you look like an actual goddess with these clothes.
The Aztecs was already one of my favorite Classic Who episodes so far (the last one I watched was The Ark, for the record), and then a couple of days ago I saw a colored version of that incredible outfit that Barbara wears during most of the story… and I just HAD to draw it.

Zagreus isn’t one of my favorite stories, but there’s something fascinating about its concept, even if I don’t really like its execution.
My brother saw this and asked questions about the background. I told him it was Eight’s TARDIS, showed him some pictures of it, and said it was my favorite. He answered “oh, is it because it looks like something from Myst?” AND HOLY SHIT HE’S RIGHT. I NEVER REALISED HOW MYST-LIKE THAT TARDIS LOOKED UNTIL NOW. That explains a lot.

Sometimes you’ve got this project that you wanted to make for years and years but didn’t because you’re scared of messing it up. “Vertige” (working title) is an idea I’ve been kicking around since 2007 and I never seriously started to work on it until last year. Recently, I’ve been experimenting a lot with watercolors and inks, so I’m finally working on the actual comic.

Still no answer from any publisher for Terre Obscure. I’ll keep working on this one in the meantime. And try some other publishers if I don’t get any answer at all.

reasons the eighth doctor is the best and people should totally listen to his audios:

  • paul mcgann’s voice
  • super fucking cute and enthusiastic
  • tendency towards ridiculous shit
  • deals with more crap than ever thought possible by man
  • ~*EIGHT AND CHARLEY POLLARD*~
  • the audios make the show’s evil rassilon make more sense tbh
  • literally goes through so much crap, though
  • such a sarcastic little shit

I’ve just listened to The Girl Who Never Was.

I think I let out some sort of distressed wail during the letter at the very end. This is heartwrenching. First the end of Absolution and now this. I mean, it’s like the writer wanted to say ‘Well, there’s no way in hell I’m going to let these characters have a peaceful, bittersweet ending ; I’m going to remind you how much you love them before I tear them apart in the most painful way possible.’
