Bow Ties are cool by memorypalace Bow Ties are cool by memorypalace
Bow-ties ARE cool.

Matt Smith as the eleventh Doctor.

When I first saw Matt Smith in costume, I was unsure, but he's really fitting into the role well, and brings a freshness to the show, with his floppy haired slightly awkward Doctor.
First time I've tried a background like this, too. Looks a little Dave McKean-ish, though that wasn't the intention.

Oh, and please fullview to check out his tweed jacket, I took a while making that texture, and I think it works pretty well, I'm thinking of posting it in scraps.

That tweed texture [link] :D

Ooh, I love this! :D
The background is seriously cool - how'd you get it? :O

:D Thank you :)
The bg is simply pages from a dictionary scanned in and cropped/arranged, then the "colour" is a pic of space added on top and altered slightly . It's more obvious when you view it sideways :O It just so happened that the light/dark areas corresponded with the pages XD
Anyway, I'm glad you like it, I may post the bg in scraps one day, but it is simple enough to make in the meantime :)

Thank you, I didn't want to make a big thing of the background, I just hoped that Dr Who fans who were paying attention would get it :D

I like the boney, oldish look of his face.
It makes the Doctor look more his age, while still resembling the young Doctor.

Thank you, I do think he looks a lot younger/older from different angles actually, which suits the character very well :D

As much as I enjoy this pic... and the new doctor :D
...his face is wrong xD youve made him look all old and boney faced D:

but yeah other than that... *thumbs up*

memorypalace Featured By Owner May 29, 2010
Well he is kinda all boney and sharp and anglular,and from different angles varies from young looking to much older XD Yeah, the likeness isn't perfect (his eyes are much more deep set than this, and his chin more peculiar), but it was drawn without reference :)
And he does rock as the Doctor also, I think he's done an awesome job of filling Tennants shoes. Oh, and thanks :D

The tweed looks AMAZING. And the dictionary clippings in the background make a really clever touch.

Oh, and I appreciate the tweed remark, it took a deceptively long time :O

He's definitely playing it differently from Tennant, in a good way I think :D
It's good to have a hero in a show who is slightly awkward anyway :XD: makes a nice change :) And thank you for the comment, also
