Lungbarrow - DWM version by Harnois75 Lungbarrow - DWM version by Harnois75
This was one of the earliest things I did for Doctor Who magazine. Submitted in 2001, held in the Panini archive for a decade and recently returned to me along with a lot of other pieces. At the time I wasn't all that happy with it, but seeing it again I don't think it's too bad. The Gallifreyan guard looks a bit pants, and having done the ebook of Lungbarrow a few years later there are obviously some scale issues out of wack that weren't pointed out to me in the brief, but all in all it's ok.

I haven't toyed with it in anyway, this is scanned straight from the A3 painting warts and all. Medium - Gouache.

y'know, whats really weird is how much the portrait on the wall resembles Ecclestone. Very Prophetic.

I was thinking of how much it looked like William Hartnell.

Ah yes, Gallifrey. Which RTD destroyed.

Great art.

Fantastic to see this in all its detail, and as such a larger size I've seen it before.

RedRed (I believe that's the guard's name) was stuck in a transmat for 900 years or so, so he can probably afford to look a bit odd.

Ah, Lungbarrow. That book had such a profound impact on my nascent fan-ness back in 1997, and I can clearly remember this picture appearing back when I still read DWM. Loved the portrait of a young William Hartnell on the wall, brilliant touch. Was the peculiar "vault" under the clock supposed to be a Loom?

I love this! I can remember first seeing this in the mag, it had such an effect on me. The colours are fantastic. I also remember the Cat's Cradle one with the process or datavore menacing Mel. Brilliant, and like this piece, so evocative of the novel.
