These are all the little character portraits I did for the Tardis BigBang Challenge for Dr Who fandom where Artists are assigned a (20 000+ word) story to illustrate. My assignment was a cute comedy starring Sarah Jane, Jackie and Mickey (bottom row) with guest appearances by Rose, the Doctor and Donna (top row).
The cover I did for the story is over here in Scraps --> [link]
Mostly I just wanted to try out some simple portraits. These were great practice for expressions, teeth (!) and hair, but reinforced the fact that I work best when I know the characters well. Donna is referenced but I've only seen one of her episodes and it was difficult to get a likeness of Donna rather than just a likeness of the photo.
I'm grateful for crit from ~crysothemis
, ileliberte and Niki-chidon who offered advice on making the individual portraits in this mini-gallery more cohesive, and the design much cleaner and simpler.

ETA: my old monitor was so dark, and suddenly this looked much too light. I've changed the contrast and fixed a few things that bothered me.
