The Thoughts of James the Person.

Sculptor. Animator. Writer.

A few weeks ago we announced that BBC America would be displaying Doctor Who fanart at the BBCA booth at San Diego Comic Con. We received an outstanding number of awesome submissions from Whovian artists and featured some on BBC America’s video cube! Which looked something like this:

(Actually it looked exactly like this) 

Here’s a slideshow of all the Doctor Who fan art that was chosen to be featured. Unfortunately the music needed to be removed from the video, but maybe if we all sing doo-wee-ooo~ at the same time we’ll all be able to hear it!

A sculpture of mine, as seen at the San Diego Comic Con (get me)
(The one on the right. The one with my name)

Pleased as punch to reblog this, as I rarely reblog stuff.

I frankly never expected to see pictures of it being displayed. 
Wonderful indeed and thanks for the opportunity. 

So I’ve been umming and ahhhing over this one for probably well over a week now.
I wanted to give sculpting Clara a go.
Annoyingly I don’t think I did the sculpt justice, it came out a lot rougher than I originally wanted but still I think its not *that* bad.

I think I *almost* managed it, almost.

It isn’t helped by the fact she’s not an easy thing to photograph either.

I’ve become fascinated with the horse-like expressions Peter Capaldi pulls and wanted to try another one. I thought the semi-translucent quality of the Super Sculpey worked nicely as I sculpted it and so tried a much lighter painting technique. Keeping the paint to an absolute minimum. 

I think it paid off somewhat.

-Good grief, so much attention for one signed photo, and so many new followers.

Hello wherever you are!

I feel compelled however to warn you of the inevitable disappointment you shall experience following me as I struggle to be even distantly interesting at best.-

You ruddy Vashta Neradas have been nicking my lightbulbs again haven’t you? 

So I got home and this was waiting for me.
I had written to Mr. Capaldi back in April to wish him a happy birthday and sent along a couple pictures of some sculpted and drawn bits and pieces. I got a pre-printed photo and the standard “We are afraid Peter is really very busy and can’t reply to his fan mail at the moment” letter a few weeks later, which to be honest I expected and yet was slightly deflated.
Then I return home today and find a curious envelope addressed to me in rather squiggly handwriting from BBC Cardiff.With trembling and excited fingers I tore the seal open with a letter opener and this was inside. I am even more in love with this man and can’t wait to see him in action.
Thank you Peter, you are a gent.(I also believe he wrote the address on the envelope. A nice touch)

I wanted to try something a smidge different (only a smidge mind) and so have tried to capture the wonderful expression on Capaldi’s face as he struggles to clamber from his miraculously shrinking TARDIS whilst filming the new series of Doctor Who.

I don’t know if I 100% managed to capture him or not but I like it and it was done with Super Sculpey, so it goes to show you CAN get good detail from what is usually treated as a clumsy and low detail holding clay.

Bit of a warm up exercise. A little Chlöe Howl appeared.

This took about two and a bit days to make.
Super excited about her new album “Trouble in Paradise” coming out later this month.

A series of sketches and caricatures I did whilst on my Trip to Italy…

I’m pretty happy with how they function and some took considerable amounts of blood and tears to work.
