Solace and Solitude by naturalshocks Solace and Solitude by naturalshocks
TUMBLR :bulletpink: FACEBOOK


"It was beautiful. They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems. And on the continent of Wild Endeavour, in the mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords. The oldest and most mighty race in the universe. Looking down on the galaxies below, sworn never to interfere, only to watch."

I think I'm going to take a small break from the journal drawings now, since I've got 2 other projects to finish, but after that I shall continue with the creepy gas mask kid. Thank you all for voting. :hug:

For a moment, I thought this was taken straight from the show. It just looked too real to me, but when I looked at the page itself, I noticed that it was drawn with normal writing instruments. You're an incredible artist to be able to draw such realistic images. You have earned my respect as a fellow artist. (Though I admit I haven't been practicing too much lately.... I did attempt to draw the red grass fields on a Nintendo DSi XL flipnote, but I only had three colors to work with and could only use two at a time.)

One of my very favorites of these (it's hard to choose!). Again, love the detail you put into these; from the sketches to the scrawling musings of 'John Smith'. ^_^ Yay.

I love the way you always manage to make it look as though the notebook is dissolving away to reveal a magical portal to a wonderful place =P

That's how I feel when I look at this. It makes me think, what if you decided to bury this somewhere and someone dug it up in 50 years or so -- it would be like a movie!
