A Rhythm of Four by naturalshocks A Rhythm of Four by naturalshocks
TUMBLR :bulletpink: FACEBOOK

The wonderful John Simm as the Master in BBC's Doctor Who. Used a promo photo for The End of Time.

Another white-on-black practice. I've got used to this technique, so I went for a bit more detail this time. :)

A few WIPs can be found on Facebook: [link]

○ white watercolour pencil (Faber-Castell)
○ white pastel pencil (Derwent)
○ A4 black paper
○ eraser stick

I'm in love with this drawing. It captures the darker side of the Master but still has that hilarious glint of insanity in his eyes. I can express how awesome this is.

Magnificent...really.
The white drawing on the black paper just fits to the character of the Master :)
Love this fact. :D
And the picture looks very accurate and the details are just amazingly well done!
The look of the Master is perfect!

You're of course welcome! This really is gorgeous. I did a project in school with white charcoal on black paper, and it's fun but tricky as hell. You really MASTERED it though. (Oh, I'm so bad...) But in all honesty, this is gorgeous. Not to mention, he's damn sexy. The end. Done rambling :D <3 <3 (<--time lord hearts.)

So I added this to my favorites a long time ago, and I must say it's beautiful. I keep coming back to it. One of my favorite John Simm works out there, and his face is rather hard to draw.

Thank you! :D I *love* drawing stuff on black paper. It was a bit odd at first, but once you get the hang of the technique, it becomes very addictive.

I love it when artists use colored paper-- it gives a whole other dimension to the drawing :nod: Your drawing is very cool and dramatic. The skin looks a bit furry but on the other hand, the hair and the beard look super awsome :w00t: Draw an animal next time? :flirty:

Wow! Bravo! I love the menace, the malevolence, and the mischief in his expression. And you have also captured, in the eyes, the weight he carries from those drums. What an amazing piece!
