Just for you guys, I made a new print of David so that I have a proper excuse to promote my Society6 page on this blog. You can buy all the pieces above as prints, shirts, hoodies, pillows, tote bags, and wall clocks! I’m currently out of work, so this is my only form of income at the moment, so if you cannot buy, a signal boost would be greatly appreciated. I hope to do more prints with DT soon, and if anyone is interested, I will make prints available from their suggestions and make another post when the time comes.

David Tennant & Catherine Tate Doctor Who photoshoot

I have to admit that I was very green when I first started [at the RSAMD]. I hadn’t really done anything in life and I was surrounded by all these people who were much older and had much more professional experience. I remember spending most of the first couple of years just trying to bluff it. The older students managed to corrupt me, which was great. Instead of doing double maths at school, I was doing something I really loved and partying in between.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
I really hope you can appreciate the blood sweat and tears that went into finishing this by the 14th. Hand painting the same thing 16 times is.. fatiguing. But I’m pretty happy with the result, so I guess it was worth it. It was very experimental mixing my portrait painting with animation. I may do more in the future but if so they will definitely have less frames cause damn. Also this is actually a bit bigger, you can see the full size here (x).

Thank you so much for your answer! He’s so down to earth, it’s refreshing to read his quotes. And by the way, I love your tumblr! :)

Oh I love getting comments like this because it encourages me to plow through my work faster so that it doesn’t last until I have to surrender and collapse in bed at 2AM for a couple hours of sleep, so that I can finally get some free time to force myself to pop in some things to the queue, so thank you very very much for all the love and support! Keep it coming!

From where/when is this quote? :D

This quote is from an interview David did for CIS magazine in August in 2005 all about his role models growing up, how he feels about being a role model, and the influence his parent’s had on his moral sense of having a public persona

Hi there :) love your tumblr. Where do you get all these awesome DT quotes?

I get them from various video interviews, red carpet premieres, TV spots, magazines, and pretty much anything that David has appeared in. I also make sure to stay away from anything scripted so the only quotes everyone gets on here is purely David and David alone. I’ve been told many people can’t grasp his accent, so it makes it easier that I can understand most British & Welsh accents, so David’s polished Scotts is nothing for me.

Any quote I find just splashed onto a web page doesn’t get posted until I confirm it being published in a legitimate interview or source. If I can’t confirm beyond a shadow of a reasonable doubt that those words at some point or another left David’s lips in the given configuration, it doesn’t get posted. I have had to toss out quite a few because of fraudulent information about the quote being from David and turning out to be from someone else entirely.

The hardest part is finding the source of an unreferenced quote about David.  Good to know people appreciate them, though. Thanks very much!

As I may soon discover, people will have expectations of me that it will be impossible to meet. All any of us can do is be true to ourselves to the best of our ability.

»SHOWRUNNER CONTEST

I would like to bring up the question that was posed to everyone a few days ago about me making a painting of David to be uploaded when done as a reward to my 500+ followers (nearly 550 now) that will be given out at random under a “reblog this to enter” post when this blog has reached 1,000+ followers. While I have had a few votes on replies or askbox, they have literally been 2 for each category and tied straight across the board! How bout that? Anyway, the question was what sort of painting of David should I paint?

  1. David from Doctor Who
  2. David from Fright Night
  3. David from Casanova
  4. David from Broadchurch / Gracepoint (the US adaptation)
  5. Shakespearean David (he’s been in Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Love Labours Lost, Much Ado About Nothing & Richard II, if you care to be specific)
  6. or Simply David

Now I know the integrity of my artistic skill comes into play for something like this, so if you want to see heaps of examples of my work you can either visit my art tag on my personal blog HERE, my art blog HERE, or my deviantart HERE.

Thanks for following and don’t forget to vote!

When I was a boy, I wasn’t interested in sport and I didn’t follow any football team, so it was posters of Madonna that I stuck on my bedroom walls, although I certainly didn’t think of her as a role model.

In a profession like this, there’s always a lot more steps up and a lot more steps down.

I’m such a pessimist that I was sure the film would fall through. It’s because of Trainspotting and Ewan McGregor. People kept telling me I sounded so ‘hip,’ so ‘cutting edge’!
