The 11th Doctor: Matt Smith by Gorpo The 11th Doctor: Matt Smith by Gorpo
My first doodle of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor. I have a full body version on my desk at work.

ED:
I get this question a LOT, so I'm going to answer it here in the comments.
"Why are there only 9 Doctors? What happened to the 1st and 2nd Doctors?"

Answer is, when I drew this I started with Matt Smith's head near the left side of a piece of paper. The silhouettes were added as a stylistic afterthought. But I ran out of room after I got to Jon Pertwee.

For a complete version, check out this submission: [link]

Hey i have a qeustion for you about Doctor Who. If Dotor Who Regeneration is he still the same person or is he a different not with skin but with mind.

He's supposed to be the same person. One of the descriptions I read about the process was that when regeneration is triggered, it releases a hormone called 'lindos' which flashes through every single cell in his body with a massive burst of energy which reshapes and realines them. They reassemble themselves. Some Time Lords can (were able to?) control how they looked after but depending on the circumstances it's more of a volatile, random process.

Romana was able to completely change her appearance at will before her body 'gelled' into the form she wanted, which was to look just like the Princess Astra from Atrios. The Master seemed to be able to make sure he always looked pretty much the same before he ran out of regenerations and had to take whatever he could get. But even then for a while he was able to give himself the classic swept back hair and goatee.

How it effects the Doctor's mind is another matter. Each incarnation seems to display its own preferences and tastes in clothes, food, people, etc. and they all seem to feel that they are superior to all previous and subsequent variations. But they're just different aspects of the same guy.

When they meet each other (like in my comic "The 10 Doctors" or the various episodes "The Three Doctors", "The Two Doctors", "The Five Doctors", "Time Crash" and so on) it's because the Doctor ran back over his own timeline either by accident or because something or someone outside forced it to happen. The TARDIS deliberately avoids landing somewhere it's been before when it can and altering his own history is very dangerous.

You can think of it like either he's the same guy wearing different suits and behaving different ways because of his age and experiences. Like a kid meeting himself as a teenager, an adult, a middle-aged guy and an old man.

Or like a tadpole meeting itself as a frog.

Same guy. Different appearance. Slightly altered personality.

There is an Australian artist, who has a table at Wondercon 2013, who has this artwork, and is claiming it as his own. I will get photos and email them to you, is you wish.

Please do! I'd be amused to see that, thank you. What is it about THIS artwork?

I sent the details to you via Twitter. I even sent info to Bleeding Cool, as they have a passion for exposing art thieves, and people who claim other peoples' works as their own.
The artist is named James Gilarte. Here is the link to BleedingCool [link]

You can see your work front centre, though he blackened the background, to try to disguise the swipe.

When I approached him with a copy of your sketch, he claimed ignorance and claimed he was the creator and not you.

So, perhaps you may need to, as they say in Los Angeles, Lawyer up.

Thanks for the heads up! I don't know if it's worth dumping lawyer fees into it. It's a silly doodle I did for a lark one day and he's not the first to steal and sell it. He may well have stolen it from someone who stole it from me!

Anyway. I'll look into it but I'm really more amused then offended.

True. But, instead of being a scummy ebay seller, using your artwork on bootleg items, or on Etsy shirts, he's furthering his own "career", by tracing and flat-out copying other peoples' work, like the often mentioned Rob Granito and Josh Hoopes. I'm sure his entire portfolio was copied artwork, and going by his website, he comes across like a complete glory-hogging jack-ass, to boot, who is happy to steal other people's work and claim as his own.
But, then again, he thinks he's immune being in Australia, rather than the US.
It would be nice, if you contact some of the US convention organisers (like Comic Con International, who run San Diego, WonderCon, and Ape), and let them know his game, and I'm sure they'll gladly ban his ass from future events, like Mr. Granito and Hoopes.
Contact Rich Johnston over at Bleeding Cool, and ask his thoughts. I know he's a huge fan of exposing comic-art thieves and such like.

Gorpo Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012
Thank you! I do have plans for at least 2 stories that feature the 11th Doctor. As I've become a huge fan of Matt Smith in the role, I'm sure there will be others in the future.

I am, however, working on several things at once.
1: "Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic"
2: "A Time to Live; A Time to KILL!" -With Richie Brackin and Christina Folkers
3: "Storybored" -With Dominic Marco
4: "The Fairies of Cottondale Wood" -With Jennifer Morris
5: "The 23 Doctors" -For "Doctor Who's" 50th anniversary.
6: "Thursday: Halloween"
7: "13/31" -With Hilary Doda

All this is happening concurrently. As well as my day job from which I've got 2 months off. But I'll get to everything eventually! So keep reading! :D


5: "The 23 Doctors"

Very nice.

I've been thinking how much I'd love to see your 10 Doctors story adapted as a canon tale. The more I think about that, the more I realize that only way it could possibly work is through animation, given that some of the classic Doctors are gone, and many of the others have aged too noticeably.
