Danse Avec Moi by CT02 Danse Avec Moi by CT02
UPDATE:Print available here!


"Dear Doctor... Dance with me."
"I can't."
"...There comes a time, Time Lord, when every lonely little boy must learn how to dance."

This piece was inspired by "Girl in the Fireplace," one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes, and the lavish palace of Versailles. The Doctor and Reinette were cut out months ago, but then the project stalled. I simply couldn't finish. At last, I stumbled across a gorgeous panorama of the Hall of Mirrors and fell in love. The fancy, fussy gold detailing was right up my alley!

So, as they say in Paris, "Voila!"

Material: paper, matboard, mechanical pencil, colored pencil, Exacto knife, scissors, Art Gel Medium

Hall of Mirrors 360 view - [link]

Oh, I ADORE this!  One of my favorite episodes, lovely composition, and I LOVE that it's cut out paper rather than a painting!  First time I've seen Doctor Who art made this way, absolutely love this ^_^

This is really gorgeous! It jumped right off the front page at me and I knew exactly what scene it was inspired by immediately, even from the thumbnail. The perspective is really neat, and the movement of his trenchcoat and her dress is amazing. The only (tiny) thing I noticed that seems off is the chandelier - it looks like the chandelier itself is centered, but the piece connecting it to the "ceiling" (it looks like a tassel) is a hair too far to the left.

Also, Tennant's hair. OMG. <fangirls>

Thanks very much for the nice words! "Girl in the Fireplace" gets me every time, but I do love it so. It was a great deal of fun figuring out all the different textures for the outfits and Versailles.

Thanks very much! I believe this episode is SOLELY responsible for my new appreciation for France. The 18th century was incredibly fascinating!

Someday I would LOVE to see the Hall of Mirrors in person!
