A recently completed commission.
The commissioner (fountain of fun ideas, @mtemplar) had me do this piece up in reaction to a live violin/fiddle performance she saw. She thought it might be fun to see the Doctor playing one as well.
I misunderstood her intent in the initial sketch, and did up something much more moody and sad (much in the vein of Holmes), but she passed me vid of the performance, and a few other images to pint me in the right direction.
I'll still do that sad violin one, though. ;)
Anyway, in addition to the happy Doctor, since Ten's run was fraught with more than its fair share of depressing moments, I went bright as possible in places; the TARDIS dances on the music, while, in place of the time vortex, which I usually do as color on black, I went with some "happy lil' lines" (thanks Bob Ross) and placed that over a more cheery white.
This was also my first full piece drawn in Manga Studio 4 EX. It was my shakedown piece - I had the pencils done already, so I decided to import those to MS, and just start inking, searching through the manual, Google, and asking questions of those in the know when I hit a wall. Best way for me to learn things like this is to just go for it, and find and correct my ignorance along the way.
A fun piece, and I'm happy with the way this came out.
