To those who don’t know, Chris Chibnall is the most recent showrunner for Doctor Who. This fact may not be accurate for much longer. It’s fair to say that he’s been a little controversial; some might say (very poor), but I couldn’t possibly comment.
Anyhow, this drawing was done last December and was for a vaguely Gilliamesque animation project, hence it was done in pieces. The project’s been on hold, BTW, but maybe we’ll have a finished video soon. It’s only a silly bit of fun, though.
So what we have here are the original inks/pencils, sans arms, followed by the full figure in colour—and finally, a detail of the head with the addition of more hair. You see, Chris used his immense fortune to purchase lovely, sparkly new hair piece/weave/plugs that fools approximately nobody…
In the Gilliam vein, I obviously wanted to make him into a real grotesque—maybe slightly to the detriment of his likeness, as he’s fairly bland-looking, really. Still, I think it achieved what I wanted quite well.
