Dr. Who Came from the Stars (fandom mashup!)

What do you get when you combine Dr. Who with the Korean drama  You Who Came from the Stars ? "Dr. Who Came from the Stars," of course! Here's the time lapse video showing my inks. I scanned the linework and colored it digitally. (Full disclosure: as you can see on my instagram , I also watercolored the original, but with very indifferent results . . . I'll blame it on the first time trying this paper, ok?) Despite my sometimes wibbly-wobbly perspective--don't look too closely at the Tardis!--I really like the finished piece. Check out my  Society6 shop  for  prints ,  iphone cases , and  t-shirts ! My sister still can't believe that while I was traveling last year I passed up not one--not two--but  three  opportunities to take a selfie with cardboard cutouts of the hero from You Who ; do you think she'll finally forgive me if I give her a print of this picture?

Happy Thought, Indeed!

Although I would never want to compare Edward Bear (Mr. Sanders?) to Mr. Collins, I can imagine a Regency Winnie-ther-Pooh proudly displaying his closet of honey pots to visitors, which prompted this non-canonical '95 Pride & Prejudice/Winnie the Pooh illustration! The elaborate border and general Regencyishness were inspired by  C. E. Brock's  watercolor illustrations for Pride and Prejudice , and of course Pooh's design and the general color scheme were taken from Ernest H. Shepard's illustrations. Here you can see some of my thumbnails and the initial sketch (also on my Instagram account last week!) in  Non-Photo Blue Pencil . Inking with my favorite Sepia  Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens  and watecoloring took about two hours. Subscribe to  my youtube channel  and stop by  my Society 6 shop ! *Some links are affiliate
