so I logged on a few hours ago only to see my desktop literally EXPLODED. not surprising that the source was the amazing and talented burdge.
and while I know she didn’t reblog with the intention, she has the boon. so this is a quick thank you sketch to burdge for having such an enormous following and through osmosis they destroyed my dashboard.
I couldn’t decide if Harry and Ginny would be the best thanks because in the past we’ve shared the feels over them, so…they’re cosplaying another amazing duo.
mostly, thanks for just being a rad, burdge! :)
I JUST GASPED (and then promptly choked on my food, but i digress)
lisa, i’m so so so so SO happy!! and surprised!!??? i just really wanted to get your print shop some attention, because i’ve been a major fan of your drawings since the beginning of time. and i know what it’s like to try and get business flowing with artwork (a struggle honestly). you deserve all the positive attention and more! <3
also, i’m DEAD and this drawing killed me. thank you a million times!! (っ˘з(˘⌣˘ )
Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
RTD subverted the idea of the Doctor as God, not supported it.
The imagery of the Doctor as an all powerful deity is constantly juxtaposed with him being unable to prevent death despite his most desperate efforts. Astrid’s resurrection is impossible and the notion of choosing who should die deemed monstrous, and the Master rejects the Doctor’s salvation to spite him. When he does eventually snap and and become the Time Lord Victorious, he is undermined by the actions of the very woman he saved.
I felt the need to post this for three reasons:
- 1. people in general asking how I did it
- 2. people questioning if I took a gifset and ran it through photoshop filters
- 3. because I want people to know that its digital art- painted in photoshop- not traditional. In my original post I used the words “hand painted” because I was groggy and exhausted and I wanted to imply each frame is a from-scratch illustration but I think some people took it to mean there are 16 physical hang-on-the-wall paintings of this which there certainly is not. I tried to change the wording but the post kinda went viral before I had a chance to catch myself. Sorry about that. I may be less awesome than you thought. Oh and on a side note this method of animating is called rotoscoping (same method was used in the movie Anastasia).
