Doctor Who vs Darth Vader by Drombyb Doctor Who vs Darth Vader by Drombyb
Exactly what it says on the tin. :)

This is actually a request from Arosenheim : How about an image of the Doctor using his sonic screwdriver on the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, and depicting that his lightsaber won't light up. (Perhaps like an motion similar to you and I tapping a flashlight with the palm of our hands when it won't light.)

Here are pictures of myself I used as references (and please don't laugh! ) : [link]

Note: the two female Togrutas in the background are just random characters.

I do like your style, very detailed - although the doctor does seem a little out of place. The shading of his hair is an odd job - To be specific: The light is behind him and hardly above him while it isn't close enough to give that kind of gloss and shine so tone down a little with the parting at the back of his head.

The left side of his face is a little bright too, surely his hair would overshadow some places but the clothing, I have no critique with.

Vader's left hand looks a bit squiff. It's a little on the skinny side and work on the shading of the light for the hand. The perspective can fool you a little, although its a good job, the thumb of the far hand could be further outstretched while the four fingers perhaps closer together as this is how you'd smack something against your hand as if it weren't working.

Otherwise, A job well done Very good

Ah yes and as a side note - The detail of the two behind the doctor doesn't quite add up to the detail put into the doctor. It's almost as though the doctor's face is from another picture entirely. And try to add as much detail as you have with all other areas - try not to get lazy and the results will be immaculate

This. Is. Amazing. You've taken two of my favorite things, Doctor Who and Star Wars, and combined them into one amazing work of art. I love how the Vader half of the picture is dark and foggy, while the Doctor's is light and has him guarding the two Togrutas. Perfect representation of dark vs. light, good vs. evil. The Doctor's hand is a little awkwardly posed, but I love how it looks like he's sonicing Vader's lightsaber, which is being deactivated. The emotion of surprise on Vader through his hand is wonderful, since you can't use facial expressions. I really hope those two Togrutas got out safely!

Someone called :iconstargeek98: Star Geek 98 has reuploaded your picture after claiming they found it on Google. I have told them to remove it as it is yours…

Yeah it's ok, she got in touch with me and said she would delete it not knowing already it was on Deviant Art and made by you, she just said she came across it on Deviant Art, and I had told her that some time will have passed before you came back onto Deviant Art and read my comment, because it seems you hadn't been online in quite some time :)

My money's on the Doctor. My brother's betting on the sith lord though.

This is awesome, but I'd like to see him deactivate a Force Choke :)
