Vincent van Gogh by Carnivius Vincent van Gogh by Carnivius
Vincent van Gogh as he appears in the Doctor Who episode 'Vincent and the Doctor'. When I first watched this episode I was tired from a long day at a cousin's wedding and watching this at 2am in the morning and my tiredness made me totally miss the point of the episode. The second time I watched it next afternoon (when the HD version had downloaded) it totally worked for me and I really started to appreciate the greatness of this episode as an emotional character piece and I now rate it as one of the superb episodes. This sprite is my first historical character sprite from Doctor Who (as in the character is based on someone who actually lived in the real world) and it's mainly down to Tony Curran's excellent potrayal leaving a real impression (or post-impression.. art 'joke') on me. I hope I did him justice. The palette he's holding was a pain and I'm still not happy with it but it's tricky doing an object which is a weird shape aaand has a random mess of paint colors on it so I think I'll leave it as it is. I think it's still obvious what it is.


All the sprites together are shown on the blue background color at [link] or at my site's own gallery page for it along with sprites by my friend Schu at [link]

Are you lookin' for me, sonny?!

That was my fav line in that episode, shame that his name was not pronounced in proper Dutch (ie. VAN GO).

I totally agree. Steven Moffat should go to hell. But only for a day. Just to get the message across.
Then he can get back to writing Sherlock.
He left a hugecliffhaner on THAT too!
Sheesh

oh yeah I saw earthshock cybermen figures in forbidden planet the other day but I'm a lil broke at moment so I had to walk away and cry a bit. Doesn't help that forbidden planet makes everything more expensive too.

Another perfect likeness :) 'twas one of my fave eps too - perhaps because showing people who went unappreciated in their own lifetime how history has vindicated them has always been on my 'to do' list in the event I ever acquire a time machine ;)

As an avid lover of Van Gogh and on top of that, a lover of that episode (it's now officially my favorite) You captured him beautifully. If I may? Is he useable? For LJ icons or such?
Reply
:iconcarnivius:
Carnivius Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2010
sure. I've seen some of my others used on LJ before and they either just put a link to my Doctor Who sprite gallery site somewhere [link] or they have the icon itself directly link to my gallery site. I don't mind people using them at all as long as it's clear where the image came from and they ain't modified too much.

I loved the ending to the episode.
Just imagine though, if people like Van Gogh, people with great minds and talent of the past, like Da Vinci or Socrates or Beethoven were brought to our time, and shown the wonders of what their work did to advance mankind.
They too would have tears of joy.

yeah at first i felt it might be a lil schmaltzy and happy ending but he still kills himself which is quite strong for a show watched by kids as well as adults. Some idiot reviewer couldn't understand why he still commits suicide after seeing that he is appreciated in the future. the moron doesn't understand mental illness clearly.
