I Will Not Forget One Line of This [Storybook] by The-Longfall-of-1979 I Will Not Forget One Line of This [Storybook] by The-Longfall-of-1979
"We all change, when you think about it, we’re all different people all through our lives, and that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this, not one day, I swear, I will always remember when the Doctor was me.” --11th Doctor

And this is why I love Eleven. Why, [despite the many flaws it had] I loved the Christmas Special. Because of the WAY he left. What he taught me when he left-- and that high note he hit when he was regenerating. I think its safe to say that most all regenerations [save for the fantastic Nine.] ended where the Doctor was scared, in pain, despairing and confused-- maybe even with the ever-popular "I don't want to go". And I think we thought that Eleven, [being the lonely Doctor he was] was going to be the saddest of all-- but may I say that with those tears came a smile of mine. :) I was so delightfully content with how he regenerated-- it wasn't so extravagant or dramatic or weepy; I was just so happy that he found peace with who he was. That-- in those last moments, he was that Optimist he claimed he'd always be. That, as sad as the storyline of events he had were, he felt ok with not knowing what was going to happen next. I guess that's just the kind of stuff I like. :) It was personal, it was nostalgic, it was him touching all the memories, the pictures the children drew for him; how he kept every single one, touching them and hanging them up carefully--[I personally love picturing him telling any sort of story] and how he just.. lived a life, found a place where people needed him to stick around. I don't think I'll ever forget that. Moffat has made many mistakes; and perhaps in your opinion, he's ruined the show; But one thing he does-- and does very well, is give out those moments. Those parts with heart that you'll never forget. Those parts that you'll find saying to yourself in the future. 


Well, that's enough of that. :) Many thanks for all the birthday wishes so far; I'm very humbled by a lot of the messages. I wanted to submit this one on my birthday, because It's sort of become a favorite of mine. Something about drawing things like a kid would, breaking out the crayons, coloring outside the lines that I love. :D I suppose its not so much about the art, but how it was made? I started drawing this on the 31st, and finished after the new year-- I guess it's a part of the past and the future! But really, thanks for all the wishes. I dearly appreciate it. :thanks:

Stories behind this artwork can be found here! --  Easter Eggs in the latest artwork!Hello! I thought I'd share a little of the story behind the latest artwork. :) (Smile)  
It's chock-full of details, but I did not release it for download or large viewing [due to nasty thieve-y folks who can't keep their hands to themselves]
This artwork says "It's good to have a friend". :) (Smile) The story behind this little phrase is this: While I waited for the doors to open at the new years celebration we attended, this little girl was running around, she ran into me-- I gave her a smile and let her play with the little trinkets I carry around-- and after a while she gave it back, left with a friend of hers; and I asked 'is that your friend?' and she said "Yeah! It's good to have a friend, I can be yours too if you want!" and I just thought it was kind of sweet. :) (Smile)
This little number might look familiar to some. :D (Big Grin) If I wa

Daily Deviation

I Will Not Forget One Line of This [Storybook] by The-Longfall-of-1979 A wonderful Dr Who fan art. Done in a very colorful and kind of antique looking art style. Its very beautiful, for more similar style artwork please check out the artist's gallery. Well done ( Suggested by PondSongPond and Featured by Ry-Spirit )
I've always admired your work, the collage effect of the aged "paper" background and the simplicity of your rendering. This, in my opinion, is the best one yet.

Best marks for originality, in which the scene is immediately recognizable and yet not actually derived from a specific screen of something from the episode. It's like a visual "reading between the lines".

For both vision and impact you have hit the perfect emotional balance. Touching all his memories in the form of children's drawings. It's as if he spent all those hundreds of years on Trenzalore retelling his adventures to the children.

The technique is uniquely yours, and this particular drawing highlights the best qualities of your loose, simple style.

29 out of 29 deviants thought this was fair.

I must say that the first thing I noticed right off was your beautiful style on this piece, as well as the creative title, both were very eye-catching and drew me in the moment I saw the thumbnail!

Even more then that though, I love when an artist is able to achieve a softer, even traditional look using a digital medium, because for me especially that is very hard to accomplish, and I have always struggled with it.

Now on to the subject himself. The 11th Doctor has always been my personal favorite, and I agree that his regeneration was an extremely powerful one, which you have captured excellently here, the entire feeling of it comes through, especially from the drawings on the wall, and this scene you have captured is almost as moving and powerful as the actual event.

Extremely well done, this would have earned a 6 out of 5 for me if that was mathematically possible!

Oh, I wanted to cry. Sentimental evening.
This picture reminded me a feeling as while parsing old school dialogues on ragged pieces of paper, drawing for memory and other stuff.
Such usually you find in the box on the upper shelves or under the bed when tidying up.
Find, read, look...
And arises before eyes the picture like this: a collage of pieces of memories.

Sorry for my English, but I could not pass by.
