By popular demand- a chart of the TARDIS' most memorable exteriors from over the years... ;)

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who alerted me to this- the pic made its way to Neil Gaiman himself! [link] And then when I sent him a "thank you", he threw my DA page a plug: [link] Classiest. Celebrity. Ever.

my gawd so much eye candy here...I always wondered why though the ship lost her Saint John Ambulance Symbol on the front right door all those years then got it back in 2010.

when you look at the background, are the TARDISes actually in the TARDIS? Well, this is certainly an awesome piece. it is cool seeing all of them in a Row. have you ever considered drawing all of the TARDIS Console Rooms in a time line like this?

So, I've been using this as one of my wallpapers for a while, because it is just that awesome, but would you be okay with me making a Chrome browser theme out of it? With due credit, no alteration, and a link-back of course? :)

There's just soooo few Doctor Who themes for Chrome out there (and even fewer good ones), and this is one of the best fanart depictions of the TARDIS in a while - the fact that people are still finding it and reblogging it over a year after it was made says something. :)

The app I have for making Chrome themes allows me to leave the art completely intact with no alteration, via a particular "fit to screen" option - in this case (because of the dimensions) making it with this option means that when you opened a new tab while using that theme, the complete image would be on the bottom of the screen, under all your icons for Chrome apps. The toolbar and active and inactive tabs, as well as the background behind the apps' icons, would be in coordinating colors (in this case, I would go with some nice blues and greys).

When you create, save and upload a theme using this app, it allows you to place a bit of optional description under the theme's title. What I propose, in exchange for the privilege of using this lovely piece of art, is using the following for the "optional description: "Artwork used with permission of Paul Hanley. Original here: " and then the URL of this very page. :)

The theme would then pop up in searches for Doctor Who-themed Chrome themes with that description very visibly attached to it.

For the record, themes are free, or at least this one would be; it would be usable for free by anyone using the Chrome browser, and I would make absolutely zero money off of it. Just in case you were worried I was doing this out anything but geeky love. :love:

I can provide you with screengrabs of the proposed theme if you want them, and, if you okay the creation of it, I can link you to it here. :)

That sounds okay, as long as it's nothing commercial that'd piss off the BBC. Sure, send me a link. :)
studioyokai Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013
Yep! Completely non-commercial :) And it's up! Here's the link:


Thank you so much for letting me make that. :love: I've been dying for a good Who theme!

Lovely and detailed! They really used that many different police boxes for the TARDIS?
