Doctor Thirteen & Sketchcards

Well… this is not really the place for a debate on the issue, but frankly I’m not at all happy with or impressed by the current incarnation of Ye Doctor in Doctor Who series 11. I feel Jodie Whittaker is hopelessly miscast** and the series has been all-round terrible (with the bizarre exception of Bradley Walsh, I’m shocked to hear myself saying)—and I’m not particularly inclined to watch more of them. According to the current strawman arguments, that makes me some kind of -IST. I assume most sane people realise the issue is slightly more nuanced…

Nonetheless, I did have a go at drawing Jodie as Dockeroo and the result is kinda visually interesting. Or so I think, anyhow. BTW, this artwork is for sale, so feel free to make offers! 🙂

NOTE: THIS ARTWORK IS NOW SOLD. If you’re interested in a similar piece, drop me a line!!

Below Jodie, a couple of small sketchcards of monster characters I like whose names begin with H. Open to offers on those too!!

**Obviously, the brilliant Joanna Lumley would’ve been a far superior choice, per her non-canonic, jokey 1999 turn as Da Doc in The Curse of the Fatal Death. But I guess she’s a little too old now? Well, y’know, in shitty ageist terms, anyhow……

Cyberleader & New Gods

Just a couple of new drawings finished recently. First up is a portrait of David Banks and his alter ago, whom he portrayed in the classic run of Doctor Who during the 1980s, namely, the Cyberleader (of the Cybermen). Secondly, a pinup of Orion and (as a large floating head!) Darkseid, from Jack Kirby’s New Gods.

Monsters Colour Grading Tests

So… I’ve been playing with the footage for Monsters, and I’ve done some tests on the colour grading. The raw footage has a very flat colour profile, which allows filmmakers to push the images to suit the mood or preference more comfortably. Below are two graded frame grabs and finally a look at the raw (unmatted) footage for comparison.

(A trailer for the film is coming very soon!!)

Monsters Shoot

Principal photograph for Monsters was completed last night (Sunday)! In a very cold warehouse in deepest Coventry, the six-hour shoot went really well… a couple of annoying technical problems were surmounted without any great drama. (Okay, maybe some drama!!)

Huge thanks to Liam Woon for his brilliant performance and going above & beyond to help us ensure it all worked out! More soon!! But in the meanwhile, as ever, here are some photos for you to peruse…
