Doctor Who: The Impossible Crossing - The Daniels Family

Hey there Who fans and Impossible Crossing readers!!

I thought it was about time you all had a progress update and a bit more art to keep your appetites wet! 

Progress with the remaining 17 pages of issue one (following directly from the 5 page prologue) is going well! Though I've been working on pages in a bit of an odd order.. I drew page 6, panel 1 then skipped ahead to page 8! Though I blame Alex for this as he wrote in what promised to be a challenging yet beautifully intricate panel to draw on page 8 that I just couldn't wait for!!
(If you follow me on Twitter you'll have seen a sneaky WIP peek, if not here you go!)
However now pages 6 and 8 are completely drawn and inked, ready for colour, I'll be moving on chronologically to page 7 next.

For now though here're some character studies and colour concepts for the remaining members of the Daniels family!

If you need a little reminding about who  the Daniels family is, then heres a quick re-cap.
Travelling 2nd class on the Titanic is Harriet Daniels, and adventurous and quick witted girl who befriends the Doctor for the duration of this story. she is travelling with her father, Howard Daniels, who finds in the Doctor an understanding and mutual respect, Thought the Doctor know he's more important than he knows!

Along with Harriet and Howard are Harriet's mother, Ellen, and younger siblings, Charlotte, Theodore and Evelyn. 


Ellen Daniels is your typical middle class lady from 1912. She's mostly concerned about her eldest daughter's reckless and inappropriate behaviour. Harriet, being nearly of age for a girl of this era, doesn't concern herself with thoughts of the future, but Ellen is all to aware of what is to be expected of her daughter if she is to thrive in society. And that doesn't include running around freely aboard Titanic!

Charlotte Daniels, although 3 years younger than Harriet, is much more cautious and aware of the proper etiquette for a girl of 1912. She is most certainly her mother's daughter and doesn't at all share Harriet's adventurous spirit, preferring to turn a blind eye and do as she's told.

With Theodore (7 years old) and Evelyn (2-3 years old) you have a solid family unit, typical of the Edwardian era, and our main characters in Impossible Crossing!
