TARDIS 1990 by Harnois75 TARDIS 1990 by Harnois75
Painted in 1989, speculation on where Doctor Who might have gone and how it might have looked.

Reworked slighly in PSP recently to darken the image.

Very sleek.

I adore this console room design. Did it ever feature in a DWM article? I've been wondering the same thing about your David Troughton artwork (which is also fabulous!), is that anything to do with the plans for him to become the Eighth Doctor in the Virgin New Adventures or just your own fan fic?

One of the best TARDIS designs I've even seen!

This is really, very, very interesting
TheRamblingNutcase Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014
Words cannot express how much I adore this console design! It's a perfect blend of classic and new! If I were The Doctor, I'd definitely have this set as the console, it's very badass.

I'd like to see you interpretation of the artwork that might've been used for the show if it had continued in the 1990's. The design that was shown on "Doctor Who Night."

Entirely possible, considering the size of the set they were using back then!

A crucial component is missing, my friend!
Without this vital device, the victory of our true enemy is assured and we will be rendered helpless!
....Where is the couch?
fbi12345 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013
There is no couch in the main console room in the Classic Series. That happen in NuWho. Though the doctor did have a living room of sorts.

I like this design
iLikeTheUDK Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013
Did you paint this?
Harnois75 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Originally painted in gouache, yes.
Pencil76 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013
This. is. Awesome! I have to admit, I didn't much like the Tardis in the 1996 movie, the feel of it or the colors. This is the exact opposite, and the feel of the environment is very much like how I feel the the Tardis is supposed to be. I love the sleek design, all the little flashing buttons and lights, and how the small, compact room feels more like a control room, instead just one big room with a console in the middle. Great work!
tristan-gustafson Featured By Owner May 25, 2013  Student General Artist
Funny how the latest console room resembles this one. I love your work though!
GillianIvy Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've featured this in my latest journal design: [link]
Harnois75 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks :-)
GillianIvy Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Love your work, btw. ;D
Ridesinnight Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Would luv to have see this in the doctor's wife :)
android65mar Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
Interesting that you went for the outer doors as inner doors thing that the new Who went for.
BlackLanternDaddy Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
it's strange but this now looks like the TARDIS in The Snowmen.
iLikeTheUDK Featured By Owner May 9, 2014
Yeah, and the console looks a bit similar to the one used from 2005 to 2010.
Tuiteyfruity Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
OK, I really want the console to look like this
a8ken Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Its very star trek the original series which i like alot. If i were to be a time lord id choose this desk top theme!
LordTigeron Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012

Better then the coral thing on TV at mo
phalon1111 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2011  Student Artist
I think it looks amazing. It's unlike any TARDIS console I've ever seen.
Colourbrand Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Now that is what I CALL a TARDIS!!!
nickmandl Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
this is fantastic, and ver star treky
i feel like it might be a little uninviting for the doctor, atleast the more recent doctors but i could picture some older doctors or definitely the master in it
IceOfFire Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I wish the TARDIS was like this. The new series ones are not as good as the original series' TARDIS's.
akirajay38 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2011
looks cool, i can see the evolution from the 80s console room, honestly i like this more than what the 2005 series got. course in my mind the 8th doctors console room was the best(all steampunky) but i really like this interpritation, has a 2001 element to it.
kingtuter Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011  Student General Artist
I really like the look but yeah bit to sci fi for me :P
I just wondered, I know you retouched it slightly with photoshop but did you use any other program?
Harnois75 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Paint Shop 7, which has some quite nice lighting effects.
Police-Box-Traveler Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011
Nice work! It is a little too Star Trek but I like how integrated everything looks. Got some nice depth and detail here.
margflower Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2011  Student Digital Artist
That would be a sweet Tardis control room!!
BlueBeacon Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Wow looks like something from star trek or star wars, very awsome looking.
The-Bongmaster Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thats pretty kool :)
2Scribble Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
VERY McCoy-era... definitely seems like something seven or five would fly around in given that they were the Doctor's most disposed towards computers banks 'n such. The gothic thing was mostly four/eight whereas the organic bit mostly belongs to the new Doctors. The others seem to be 'between' organic/techy :)

Either way, very snazzy
iLikeTheUDK Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013
The current console room is techy (and also strangely similar to this console room).
thedropkickninja Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2010
I cant picture the current or last 3 doctors cruzing around the universe in this. But its still pretty damn slick
Destro7000 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010   Digital Artist
that design seems more of the universe of 'Alien' to me than Dcotor who...good design, but I espect Riply to walk through the door and some pilot masks to chatter to each other. Perhaps a little xenomorph to burst through an airvent! :D
jaime9526 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
guess where all the alien sets ended up being reused.......including the pilot mask if memory serves.
BassTrebleExe Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Really cool! =) And wierdly prophetic of the Russel T TARDIS too...
timeagent6 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
Very cool!
