12: 'Ginger. Ah, OK.' by simple-minds 12: 'Ginger. Ah, OK.' by simple-minds
Introducing the Twelfth Doctor if he were ginger.

The nerds among you would know what the Gallifreyan at the bottom says. :la:

I hope Peter Capaldi's Doctor has a beard; it makes him look saturnine like Three's Master. I imagine him to be colder, calmer, harder, more calculating. A combination of Two, Seven and Nine, with Three's penchant for delivering beautifully mistimed insults.

I imagine Twelve's reaction would be the above, after all the fuss of Ten and Eleven not being ginger, Twelve (the Doc does change his taste with each regeneration, after all) would consider being sort-of, kind-of ginger a humbug moment.   I think he'd be more concerned with his attire.

If the others ever became ginger, however:

Two: Oh, dear. Oh, dear me..
Jamie: What's the matter?
Two: I'm ginger. Oh, dear...
Jamie :You look like a Highland beastie!
Two: I certainly do not!

Three: Good grief!
Brigadier: What's the matter?
Three: I'm the gingerbread man!
Brigadier: Good heavens, Doctor, people are dying and you want me to tell you how handsome you are?

Seven: Ginger hairrr. Hmm...
Ace: So?
Seven: That depends.
Ace: On what?
Seven: Everything.
Ace: :bucktooth:

Nine: Fantastic!
Rose: What is?
Nine: I'm ginger with a northern accent!
Rose: You're so vain, you think the universe is about you.
Nine: Sort of, yeah.

I like the shades..which traditional tools you used? You also did a good job on the eyes, like some pieces feels like the person is looking out blankly but this one it feels like I can make eye contact with him.

Thank you. Colour pencil. I used a lot of shades of brown, red, grey and green. I wasn't happy with his eyes at first, so glad you like 'em.

Of them all I like how this one turned out, it's very organic and sketchy and I definitely feel the colors you used for him :D

Thank you. I wanted it to look organic. :la:

Nice shading on his face; I think the reddish tones on the dark parts of his face make him look realistic. His subtle expression is well done, too, as is his mustache. However, I think his eyes could be better shaded, because I can tell by the shape of his brow that his eyes are rather deep-set; thus, there should be more of a shadow around his eyes (his eyes can also look more 3D if you shaded the edges of his eyes darker). I think you've also managed to capture Capaldi's face generally speaking, but his nose can be more pointed and "hawkish."

Good job on this in general! He looks good with ginger hair :)

Thank you.

The reddish tones was an experiment. I didn't repeat that with the No Contest pic.

Yeah, his eyes are rather deep-set.  :)

Haha, thanks. Too bad he didn't end up ginger. Instead, he'd forgotten how to fly the Tardis.
