The Doctor’s 13th Incarnation as Sketched by You

Over at Whitechapel, comic creator Warren Ellis has thrown down the gauntlet to his community: Design the 13th (and final) incarnation of The Doctor. No Photoshop hacks, no pen-portraits, but actual drawings.

The challenge was issued on August 29th but the results are starting to trickle in now, including efforts from Pia Guerra (Y: The Last Man, Doctor Who: The Forgotten), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Fell), Annie Wu, and more. Pictured here is Guerra’s rendition of the 13th Doctor with Sally Sparrow.

Exciting, no? Any Whitechapel forum member is free to post their own illustration. I salivate (in private, of course) to think what some of’s featured artists could do in this challenge…

Chris Greenland always seems to get stuck writing the posts where The Doctor is someone else.
