'Ancient and forever' - (Doctor Who) by DarrenCarnall 'Ancient and forever' - (Doctor Who) by DarrenCarnall
EDIT: The final version of this is here - [link]. I re-drew the bow tie to give it more texture and more detail.

"Ancient and forever" - Digital art drawn on iPad

"He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and can see the turn of the universe.

And.... he's wonderful."

EDIT: 10" x 8" fine art prints (with a framed option) available at [link] !!!

LOL yeah sorry, on my iPad. I've no idea how I do it, I just kind of... do. But I DO know that I'm very slow. like VERY slow. Some artists can do a thing in an afternoon and it's AMAZING. I can never do that. I have to work on things forever to get those kind of results. All I do is lots of comparisons.. looking at photos and thinking "ok, this bit here... could it look better? if so.. how" and try to figure out what isn't quite 'real 'looking. And I just tinker. 

Basically... never worry too much about how things look, never be worried that other people are better.. .people always are! Just do stuff.. mess around..  don't try to be perfect... just do stuff. And while you're doing it just look at examples of real world stuff and see how things are. Stuff always has way more detail and variation in it than we first think. Skin tones across a face... shadows, fur, trees... anything. Loads and loads of subtle colour changes. 

I've looked at your stuff and you're doing great! Just keep going and do the same! =D

If I didn't know any better (and I probably don't) I would say that your artistic talent is just as good as Dru Blair's.[link]
