Doctor Who Fanzine Cover II by blackbirdrose Doctor Who Fanzine Cover II by blackbirdrose
It's that time of year again, and I was asked to make another Christmas themed cover for the Brisbane Doctor Who Club's fanzine. :holly: Last year's cover: [link]

I finished this way back in November so I don't quite know what to say about it... except.. who knew snow was so hard to draw..? And don't even get me started on footsteps.. :faint: :giggle:

Enjoy this festive fun and have an absolutely marvellous holiday, whether you celebrate xmas or not! :blowkiss: :icongrouphugplz:

Doctor Who (c) BBC

Loved this! This seem to have everything that I love: Christmas, snow, Santa, 11th Doctor (my favorite Doctor) and his companions Amy and Rory (my top favorite companions). What else can I ask? Well, at least ONE more Christmas Special with the Ponds. :(   But that probably can never happen... Oh well, Christmas Carol was still great.  :D

Oh heck yes! I'm pretty much going to say that it now has a very CLOSE place next to Christmas Carol. But hey, when you have Nick Frost as Santa (not probably my first choice to be honest), Santa Clause, 12th Doctor that I quickly started to like, snow, Christmas and Alien Invasion. What else can you ask for?

And Doctor going: I'm riding a sleigh! Was great and adrobable!  :3
But the Alien joke was probably my favorite as I thought about it too. And that's why those crabs creepped me out so much. I had great fear of Facehuggers, mostly because they resemble spiders too much that I fear.

So yeah, as you can read here, I LOVED it!  :D

Glad you did - I did too! A mix between Alien and Inception! I was WAY on board for that! (the Alien joke had me laughing too :D)

Must admit it took me a while to get into Capaldi as the Doctor but its a interesting change. :nod:

I introduced my younger brother to doctor who and he loves it! He is convinced the doctor is the one who delivers the Christmas presents and not Santa. I sorta believe that to. :giggle:

Dear Blackbird:

This is Indy. Greetings from Canada! I hope this finds you and yours well.

Your snow's great, but your Northern Lights are out of this world!!! I've yet to see them in RL, and this is probably the closest I'll get. How did you draw them or are they stock?

I'm also glad to see you've include Rudolph in this one!!!I've got a great little art piece in my favourites simply titled, "Grandpa Rudolph." Yup, he has grown into strong old buck now and his grandson, Randall, has followed in his hoofprints, so to speak, but his nose doesn't glow like his grandpa's--it's his hooves!

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the unofficial mascot of Christmas!

Keep u the good work, kiddo! Mind if I put you on my watch list?


Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

Awww, thank you so much! :iconcblushplz: I actually chose my favourite photograph from a google search and used it as a reference to digitally paint it - it takes an awfully long time to get right, but so worth it! I'm pleased with how it turned out! :love: Glad you like it too! :hug:

Haha, yes, Rudolph! I had fun drawing those reindeer! :rudolph: That drawing sounds very funny! :D

Thanks so much, Indy! Of course you can, I'd be honoured if you did!

Dear Blackbird:

This is Indy. Greetings from Canada!! I hope this finds you and yours well.

That's the funny thing about the Northern Lights. For years, my mother and I had this argument going in which I kept telling her that the Lights weren't real for I hadn't seen them. You know the old saying--I'm from Missouri--SHOW ME. She was raised, with her brother and sisters, on an Ayrshire dairy farm, and they saw the lights all the time. It's also the thing, too, that one can't see anything too celestial with the lights of a city constantly getting in the road.

As I think of Sherlock's "sensitive area," my mind is taking the sewer tour. Now,that I've given that second thought, I'm wondering how in blazes the leeches got through his clothes. Yet, if you think John's angry now, just wait til Sherlock gets back after the Reichenbach Falls. He's going to bust both Sherlock's and Mycroft's beaks--Sherlock for staying away for three years and not letting John know he's alive. Mycroft for telling the stuff about Sherlock's childhood to Moriarty and we, the fans, are going to bust Benedict's beak for his enjoying filming Reichenbach Falls. I'm telling you, Blackbird, our ginger is a bit of a thrill seeker.

In short, John's wrath over a ruined date will be nothing compared to his wrath when he sees Sherlock again. By the by, I know the drawing of which you speak. It looks as though it's been drawn by an eight or nine year old. Still, one can tell it's Sherlock.

In his books, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle described his detective as a sociopath. Sociopathy has two main "symptoms": 1)The person can't read facial expressions or body language and 2)They want to join in social situations but they don't know how. There are others, but I can't remember them off the top of my head at the moment. Yet, there is a camp that argues that he's high functioning autistic or has Asperger's, which is basically the same thing.

I don't think the egotism and high intelligence are two of those symptoms. I think they're just Sherlock. John should be used to Sherlock by now. It's the city of London I'm worried about. Now, if we can get Anderson and Donovan straightened out, we're away to the races!

Yes, I do think there's hope for our beloved detective. I also think that John loves playing parent to his naughty little five year old detective.

Have you ever seen "A Scandal in Belgravia?" It's the episode in Season 2 before Reichebach. In it, the only things that are keeping Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch from being busted for indecent exposure are a bed sheet and a pair of size ten sandals. That's all! Yet, the scene in which he wears said sheet is a hoot! In this scene, he's in true "five year old mode." He won't listen to John. He won't listen to Mycroft. He actually goes to Buckingham Palace dressed only in the sheet and sandals. Please note that at this writing that the bed sheet is now as famous as the purple shirt of sex.

I suppose that in time John will make him a fit member of the human race. It'll be interesting to see how he does it. Oh, by the by, the aforemention Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch is not only keen to keep playing Sherlock, but he's also interested in taking Sherlock and John's relationship further than just being friends and flatmates.

As for the comments, you're quite welcome! I'm glad to have made your day!!


Sincerely yours always,

Indy.
