T.A.R.D.I.S. - sketch-ish


Hellow, long time no see. Here a little sketch I made for school, uploaded for your eyes' pleasure. You might recognize what it is about, maybe not. What if I say *knockknock*, what do you say then? Naturally you answer with "Who is there?", but what if the man behind the door answers "The Doctor", what would you say? Ah- I see most of you get it, congrats ^^. For those who still don't or don't feel like reading this long prologue, it's the Tardis from the television series Doctor Who. I recently started watching it, I was actually forced to but never mind that, and when I was told to make a miniature (a decoration monks used to make around the first letter of a chapter they were copying) starring the first letter of my first name, I couldn't resist.

So the reason why I uploaded this, is because of the use of paint. I'm a complete toddler when it's about the ability to paint, so paintings are always a bit tricky for me. In this picture it's poster paint which also used in my other upload "Don't go in, it's a trap!", where I actually thought it was water paint, yes. But after a slight failure to copy the kind of rough style of that previous upload on a painting for a friend of mine, I wanted to investigate it a bit more.
That friend might notice the difference in the translucence of the different colours, in this little sketch I used less water and really kept in mind the realisticness of colours and lighting, plus the equality of a big one-coloured region. So in short it's less heavy-looking, lighter and probably more realistic.
I'm quite satisfied with the finished piece, but of course there are some things that could be better, like the glow effect of the light on top.

Uhmm, a lot of text this time, so for TL;DR:
just enjoy the picture and please leave a comment.

And again, the coloring is excellent. You should do this more often! The S also fits the Call Box surprisingly well... I also like the background a lot... Maybe a good idea to make the darker parts of "that previous upload on a painting for a friend of mine" It might look very good :3

Anyway, keep this up. The 10/10 is well deserved. I expect much more in the future, too!

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I'm certainly gonna make more paintings to become better and better, so you'll definitely get to see more of this. Although I hope the quality will be as good as this, if not better, because right now that's still just guessing.
Ow, that's good, actually in the sketch I made the S first and then drew the Tardis around it, so that might explain why it fits so well :P..
That painting? Hmm, interesting suggestion.. I will look into it and see what I can do.. *feeel the tension*
