The Tenth Doctor

    I recently met with a very talented man called Antony Halls who lives in Herefordshire. He showed me a bust that he had made himself of the tenth Dr Who incarnation played on TV by David Tennant. I was amazed by this bust, which is approximately 1/10 scale. He sent me a resin copy when he was happy with the original which was an excellent casting with no air bubbles or mould lines whatsoever. The hair and facial features are especially fine. I have rarely seen such a clean casting.

    I wanted to do this excellent bust justice so it has taken me a couple of months to complete. I used acrylics and oils on this piece. When I was happy I purchased a 50mm x 50mm base from Historex and used a piece of aluminium tubing to connect it all together. Antony tells me this is a one off and wont be available to purchase. Personally I think its one of the best likenesses Ive ever seen and I am honoured to have painted this for him.

    This is how the bust turned out.

    Hi Everyone.
    I would like to thank John for posting his paint-way of the 10th Doctor, David Tennant bust that I sculpted. He is a very skilled artist. I have worked as a commercial sculptor and artist for over 25 years. It is always nice to do something for myself. This was an exercise more than anything. Prior to sending a white cast to John, I did my own paint-way on the same bust. There are so many differences in each artist approach to painting the same piece. I paint using Humbrol oil paint. Here are a few pics of my paint-way. Thanks for all your kind comments as well.

    An excellent likeness. Would be a treat to see all regenerations of our favourite Time Lord...and maybe The Master as well.
