"Where are we going?"

"Alderin Beta! Boring, planet of the chip shops. But there is a 400-foot tree growing out of a clifftop on the north side of a mountain in the middle of the sea. And if you take the lift to the top and look up, at exactly 12 minutes past midnight on the 21st of September 2360, you can see more stars in one sky than at any other moment in the history of the universe. Itís like daylight, only magic!"
"Come on, letís go and see the stars."

"But I havenít changed!"

"And you never will, River. Never, ever."

-- The Doctor and River from Night and the Doctor, First/Last Night

In anticipation of the Season 7 premiere that hasn't come out in America yet. EDIT: Saw the new episode. LOVED IT. Moffat, you've done it again.

This kind of goes with my other Doctor/River painting, [link]

So this started out with me finding these brushes [link] and I was like, "Hey! They work for GIMP!" and I really wanted to try them. I thought they would make a perfect Doctor Who sky, so I started racking my brain to figure out what to draw. My friend and I started a Doctor Who marathon the week before the new episode came out, and I watched the Night and the Doctor shorts. When I got to that quote, I was like, "I wanna draw that!" So I did. XD

I will forever love these two together, even long after River's gone.

Thanks for the visual.  I was wondering what all those stars would look like.

This is such a beautiful piece of artwork. The little details with the hair and the lighting and shading make this looks so real. And the stars are absolutely gorgeous. This is probably one of my favorite DW fanarts.
