This is among my favourite deviations of all time, and now that I've acquired a premium membership, I have the privilege to tell you why in critique form.

COLOR: Your colors blend well rather than clashing, an important quality all art should have. By using browns almost everywhere else in the picture, you immediately drew my eye to Rose and the panicked expression on her face. You then guide my eyes through the rest of the picture using...

LINES: The curved lines in the background lead from Rose to the melting faces of past Doctors, 1 through 9. You also use less defined lines to lead from Rose and 1 through 9 to the 10th Doctor, the focus of the picture.

TEXTURE: Overall, this piece gives me the impression of liquid - the paint, the melting, the fluid strokes and splattered look of it. Also, 10 appears to be the most "solid" or "concrete" part of the picture, although he is melting, conveying (in my opinion, at least) that he's the only one left standing, although it won't last forever and eventually his fate will match those of his past regenerations.

LIGHT: This piece is more light than dark, but rather than giving it the general "happy" feeling associated with light, it gives the picture more of a...I'm searching for an adjective here, but can't find one. Let me rephrase that and say it gives me the impression of insanity, desperation, and powerful emotion.

Overall, I'd say your vision, originality, and impact deserve solid five stars. However, I believe that technique can always be improved upon. In my opinion, the picture could do without the rainbow on 10's back; it draws the eye away from your other splash of color (Rose's face), however it does contribute to the way 10 seems to be "melting."

Thank you for sharing your talent!

This is amazing. It must be one of the best Doctor Who artworks I've ever seen. The expressions, the realism, the colours, the feeling you get when you look at it - it can't be described in words. I wish I could express propersly how awesome this is, but all I can do is give it a humble try...

For once, I see art of the ten Doctors where they actually ARE the ten Doctors - resemblance and all. The colour works for me in a way that I can see what is in the past, what is in the present and what is a dream, or an alternative reality. The vivid colours of Rose's face come in complete opposition to both the sepia tones of the rest of the artwork, as well as the expression of true pain in Ten's face.

Truly amazing. I hope I find that book somewhere.

Both frightening and moving. Not only is there a superb use of color, but the TEXTURE really gets me.
