It feels like I’m there looking at the Tardis and I can just hear the Doctor laughing in my mind Catriona E J Lindsay
I am glad I managed to transport you there, as I assume you are one of those who dreams of hearing the sound of ancient engines echoing from the void, knowing that those unearthly gusts which tug at your hair are blowing from the very lunatic fringe of the universe... and they smell of adventure!
Ahem. Sorry. So easy to get carried away..."

Ever read the Dr Who novel "The Nightmare of Black Island" by Mike Tucker. This reminds me of the very beging of that book and it sets a very creepy mood just like the story. Very good work on the lighting and colours keep up the good work. Catriona E J Lindsay
replies: "I think I listened to the audiobook, if it’s the one I was thinking about - it had to do with someone controlling people’s dreams, I think. It was voiced by Anthony Head. There should be a law dictating that all spooky audiobooks should be voiced by Anthony Head. He’s just wonderfully creepy."

You mind me asking how you made it, detailed? I’m kinda curious, and i wanna try to make my drawings like that sometime. Catriona E J Lindsay
replies: "I’m afraid I can’t remember if there was a sketch to start with, or if I did it from scratch on the computer - I think the latter. At any rate, I would start by filling the whole picture with the background colour (the sky) and then form all the other shapes on it by using a straight-line selection tool. I then fill the selections with colour. So it’s a bit like making a picture by cutting out pieces of coloured paper.
If I want to add any more subtle shading - like the light in the windows - I can use a smart selection tool to select only that exact colour, and then paint in the shading with a soft brush. That way the shading stays within that shape.
That’s pretty much how I colour all my pictures. I also use layers to keep the different areas of the picture separate, although I can’t tell you how many I used here, as it’s a while ago.
I used Serif PhotoPlus, but the tools I mention would exist on any reasonably good photo-editing program.
I hope that helps, but do feel free to ask any other questions you might have."

I’ll check out the program you mentioned. I bought a book from photoshop where was a part i could use (also something like this). I have Adobe photoshop elements, but i first need to make a good sketch for it, i don’t know what to make yet.
Thanks a lot for the info, and i’ll ask when i’m stuck somewhere
but first practice a bit (and a sketch of course) xD
