8th Doctor

8th Doctor_kelly yates

In my quest to illustrate all the Doctor’s with the TARDIS, I’ve finally gotten to the 8th Doctor! I’ve been looking forward to this one for some time, especially since I really enjoyed the Doctor Who movie that aired on Fox in 1996. Although I wasn’t entirely sure which outfit to illustrate him in, I finally decided to go with the updated version after seeing the “Night of the Doctor” mini episode. It just felt like the right direction.

I also decided to incorporate embers and storm clouds as a prelude to the looming Time War and my loosely planned triptych design between the 8th, 9th and War Doctor illustrations. If you look at the 9th Doctor piece you’ll see a Dalek head on ground symbolizing the end of the Time War and War Doctor piece (when I get to it) will be fully engulfed in flames.

Pencil, ink and colors all by me.

Hot Topic Doctor Who

This is an exclusive Doctor Who cover I did for a Hot Topic trade paperback. It’s probably one of my favorite pieces because of how the exploding TARDIS came out. Pencils, inks and colors all by me!

Anyway, I’m not sure why, but I completely forgot to post this piece last year. Enjoy!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Back in 2010 Hasbro tasked me with developing character designs for second GI Joe movie. The characters they had me work on were Snake-Eyes, Firefly and a new character called GI Joe. They wanted to see everything from realistic to cartoony and over the top.

Jedi Padawan

Padawan SithI’m getting excited about the new Star Wars movies arriving next year! Supposedly, some of the storyline is going to revolve around a Jedi Academy under the guidance of Luke Skywalker.

Well, since I haven’t been invited to work on a Star Wars movie, I thought it would fun to create a Jedi Padawan I’d like to see run around on the big screen. The idea of someone from the Sith species training to become a Jedi Master developed because of the conflicting elements of his evil origins and desire to follow the light side of the Force. Plus, his red skin against a blue lightsaber would really pop!

Okay, geek moment is done.

4th Doctor and K-9

4th Doctor and K-9

The 4th Doctor illustration…FINALLY!

It’s alway fun to see how a piece of art will evolve from the initial design. This piece originally didn’t have K9 and was suppose to have a red Gallifrey background, but then I started tweaking the colors and the golden green color scheme just seemed to make everything pop.

I’d eventually like to do something like this for all the Doctor’s. I just need to find the time. Hope you enjoy!
