This is the retailer variant cover for Doctor Who #14, quite possibly the last cover I'll be doing for IDW's Publishing run. Sad as that is, I feel blessed to be illustrating the final issue of Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time! More about that later!
For this Western inspired piece I wanted to go for something more tonal piece and pull in colors I don't normally try. Orange and purple compliment each other so I thought that might be a great place to start and it just fell into place after that. Being able to lean on one or two colors that pull all the various elements together is one of my new and favorite techniques.
I also took this opportunity to incorporate my wife and kids' names into the background. Hopefully, the kids' will appreciate it someday!
