Updated 4th April 2010:
Right I'm updating the actual graphic file to include all the sprites I've done so far. These are all Doctor Who characters from the classic series, the modern series and the comics. They use only colors from the NES palette but do not use the NES colors per sprite limit. It's mainly a practise for me to work with a set palette while trying to pixel sprites that are recognisably based on well known characters, most of whom are live action.

My friend Schu has also done some great sprites in the same format and they can all be seen at the Doctor Who - Retro Sprite gallery at [link] where it also shows who each character is and at the bottom when they were added (in case you notice any slight style changes over time). Turned off the transparent background so it's blue like the gallery page I have for them, as the DA color is too light and they don't look good on it.

Doctor Who is property of the BBC. These sprites are the property of Carnivac (me)

I've seen several DeviantArtists use some of these to make bead sprites from and that's cool but please credit me and let me know too as I like to see them and actually would like someone to make me some to stick on my wall =)

Try making this a Sprite:

My favorite Dr Who Monster:
The Macra from 'The Macra Terror' (Not the ones from Gridlock)

I could add it to the list but I haven't done any for a long time and have about 20 or so unfinished ones that would take priority.  Could be a fun one to do though.

You're welcome! Do you have any plans of adding the Twelfth Doctor? Or the War Doctor? 
Reply

Carnivius Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2016
I already did both of those ages ago but I got tired of updating that main image everytime I did a new one so they're in as seperate entires in my gallery.   Been ages since I did any, my priorities have been elsewhere but i have some unfinished one of the Angels, Brigadier, Missy, Leela and River I should finish up and add.

wow im so impressed by your art, you inspired me to make a 38x16, 3 frame walking matt smith doctor based on your design :) ha I'm a beginner it's nowhere near as good as yours, so I'm not planing on using it anywhere. i just wanted you to know

Yes.  But not these.  Only for stuff I need to have move in game projects I'm working on. =p

Thank you. Actually I went to your page and noticed your boyfriend's aspergers blog.  I read through some of it as I was diagnosed as having aspergers a month ago (I'm 35 so it's quite late to get such a diagnosis but it explains so damn much of the way I been all my life and now at least it's official my parents can finally agree there's something different about it and actually try support me for once in their lives rather than insult =p).  Still getting my head around it all so it's nice to read about other people's experiences.

I'm glad he could help you. I actually haven't updated that bio in ages and we aren't together anymore but I still talk to him so I'll let him know.

Also, I was wondering if there will ever (or there may already be and I'm just blind) be a slitheen sprite. That would be perfect for my game so if one does get made then keep me posted!

Carnivius Featured By Owner May 25, 2015
Aw ok.  Still finding my way a bit. =)


Um, hmm. I haven't done any in ages (and have about 20 unfinished ones sitting on a worksheet png file such as River, Weeping Angels, Missy, 70's Sarah Jane, 70's Brigadier and thers) and I don't have much love for the RTD era.  However, despite my dislike of the race and their 'gassiness' a Slitheen might actually be quite fun to pixel due to the proportions and unusual look.  I'll think about it.  Just so busy with other things at moment. I'll let you know if I do one. =)

I said it once, I'll say it again: I love how you did Van Gogh. Who would have thought that the most emo artist in history could turn out to be such a badass? That episode was possibly my favorite 11th Doctor episode, and I also like how Bill Nighy gave his own opinions on Vinny while not breaking character

Pokemon that control space and time, these sprites of yours reminded me of old Pokemon game sprites

Ah right.  I get it now. =p  Sorry, needed it explained cos I don't know Pokemon that much.  I had Blue on my old Gameboy but was never really into it. Probably could only name about 10 pokemon... 20 at very most of the 151 originals.  No idea how many there are now.

I saw! They're all marvelous, you're really quite good! I look forward to seeing more~ I have a bit of a soft spot for Simm!Master, so we'll see. ;D

I have to say though, I prefer Classic Who (especially 5), so I  was REALLY happy to see that whole crew on there~

Aww, haha, that's totally fine~ I have a soft spot for Simm!Master because it's Simm (He's one of my favorite actors). The character itself isn't my favorite. xD

Just the fact that you have the classics is enough for me <333
