The Eleventh Doctor by napalmnacey The Eleventh Doctor by napalmnacey
This is just a temporary placeholder version of this image until I can get my latest paintings to a proper art photography joint. I had to get it up here at devart, since you devart folks might not have seen this beauty yet.

I saw the episode "Vincent and the Doctor" of the new fifth season of Doctor Who, and I was so inspired, I painted this picture. Done from a screen shot from the second part of the Silurian adventure.

This ended up being way darker and moodier than I had planned, but it kind of works. Took me about two days, or roughly eight hours, which is very fast for me.

Acrylic on stretch canvas.

Somehow I just now saw this, but I love it nonetheless. Also one of my most favorite episodes yet, because I love how Vincent is portrayed. He's always stood out to me because I loved his colorful works, and felt his story was so sad.

I really love how you captured his serious look. He's always had this, "Shh, not while I'm thinking" gaze as he's busy calculating. The things I notice and felt you captured is how furrowed his eyebrows get, and that open-mouth thinking expression.

And I still want to do a Mentos commercial. His outfit looks like he walked right out of an 80's Mentos commericial.

That episode really did reach some untouched parts of my psyche that needed it, and I would hug whoever wrote it forever and ever in thanks. Vincent Van Gogh was truly incredible, and I have always loved the vivacity and immediacy of his works. For my favourite TV show to pay homage to him and acknowledge his problems in such a sensitive manner was beyond my expectations, hence the many tears as I watched it!

Thank you. Matt Smith really does have a world of things going on behind his eyes. That's really hard to get in profile, but I'm glad you seemed to have caught it.

I've never seen anyone dressed like him in a Mentos commercial, but that's mostly because our Mentos commercials were way cheesy with horrid shirts and stone-washed denim. I'm in Australia. LOL!

Well, Stephen Moffat is the writer, so when you get the chance, go hug him! And take me with you! =p Too bad Amy was already in love with her soul mate, or else maybe we could have dreamed he had someone. He really did love fellow red-haired folk. Seeing how the Doctor brought him to the future to see people loving his work did make me tear up too. I just thought, what if he really could see that? Would he have changed his mind?

Oh and if you look up the old Mentos from the US, you might think he'd be in one. :D

I don't think Moffat wrote that particular episode, I think someone that had been famous for writing another tv show came in.

Re: Van Gogh, probably not. Depression is a strange thing. Even if everything is going okay, it can make you feel absolutely miserable. Kicking the Black Dog is the hardest thing in the world.

I never see the credits because I skip the intro after awhile... I don't watch it on TV because I'm American and I don't get BBCA. I just find distant friends who upload it for me. ;)

And I wish he had someone who he really could have connected with. I think with someone patient enough to work with him, you never know what good it would do.

The weird thing about serious depression (especially that which is exacerbated by absinthe drinking and alcohol) is that it convinces you that it's better for you to rid the world of you (and the problems you bring) rather than go on, that ridding the world of yourself is a kindness. I know, it's a terrible, messed up thought, but it's the reality of the condition. What Van Gogh needed was proper psychiatric care and the right medicines, but sadly they hadn't been invented yet.

Yeah, depending on the person, medicines can help. It sounded like he had more than one problem, like his ear issue, which I'm sure didn't help. That definitely would have needed medicine or surgery, lol.
