A Christmas/Anniversary Present for Mike (Doctor Who x Margaery Tyrell)

The picture Mike took of the final product. Taken from an angle, so the image is not quite proportional.

Mike’s caption on Facebook: “I joke around with Melodie Miu about how with the casting of PATIENT ZERO, I basically shipped The Doctor and Margaery Tyrell. So she of course gives me the best Christmas gift: This amazing painting she did of Matt Smith’s The Doctor and Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell!”

We celebrated our 4th year anniversary in mid-December and before I went to visit Mike, I spent around 5 days on his present. Referencing our inside joke, I made a fanart painting of Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and Game of Thrones’ Margaery Tyrell.

I used these two images for my main reference:

This image is a lot greener than the official promo (http://bit.ly/1xmAybl). I liked it a lot more because the color of her dress stayed faithful to the book depiction of Tyrell color green.

I sketched out the forms on 12″ by 18″ acrylic paper until I got the details like Margaery’s hair and The Doctor’s crossed feet in the way I wanted.

Natalie Dormer and Matt Smith have the MOST interesting faces I’ve ever had to draw. Over the course of three days, I kept studying their pictures and painting over their faces until I finally got it right, particularly Dormer’s signature smirk.

Here are some versions of it before I settled on the faces I liked.

I unfortunately forgot to take a proportional picture of the painting in its final form in its wooden black frame. Currently, the painting looks most like Natalie Dormer and Matt Smith’s faces. So the first picture of this post is what I’ll show for now until I go visit Mike again.

Materials: acrylic paints, acrylic markers, Sharpie pens (for smaller details), acrylic paper, and colored pencils (for shadowing).
