Lullaby Watson by SherlockianHound Lullaby Watson by SherlockianHound
This was actually a request from *Cygnicantus, of a scene from The Sign of Four. They just come home from an exhausting day and Holmes, seeing his friend was rather done in, tells him to lie down for a bit so he can lull him to sleep with his violin. (And this violin kinda sucks- sorry, they're the freaking hardest thing to draw ever, lol!)

Can you say 'AAWW!" Couldn't resist that one!

Anyways, this took forever, but it was so enjoyable, lol! I think I actually timed this one mostly accuratly, and it took about 11hrs in multiple evenings...

I do take Sherlock requests btw, and have a couple more lined up- but I warn you! I'm veeeery slow XD
(Actually, if anyone has a request, they should note me so I take them seriously and don't consider them an idle suggestion ;) A few more details in my journal)

This definitely deserves an AWWWWW! So nice to see a scene from the original novels too! I love all the little details, like the books behind the sofa, the pipe in Holmes' pocket, the little round pillow, the coat/gloves/cane tossed over the back, and that little curl behind Holmes' ear! Even without a background, all those little things add up & give the sense of a messy, homey flat. :D

just noticed this, but I love the detail of the pipe stem coming out of his pocket, it reminds me of myself in winter when I have all sorts of things in my favorite robe's pockets (IPhone, Sonic Screwdriver, pens, rosin, food, ect.) and then I go and do something and my mother asks why I have so much stuff in my pockets and going through my head is, "don't ask, you wont understand anyways the way my mind works..." lol (I know I ramble, a thousand apologies)

No, no, ramble away!
I'm overly pleased that you noticed that actually ;P I sometimes stick random details in for my own amusement and its nice when people see them and notice XD
Thats the only thing I miss about winter months- so many pockets! I carry everything in there!

yes, I have retired my winter robe for the season and have my thin one, which doesn't have pockets, so I am reduced to having to remember where I put things....

yea I like details, my house in the game I play (wizard101, I know again, I am a geek) you can only have 250 items in a big house, and 150 in a smaller one, and I always run out of room because I always put so many details, but on your other one with Watson stitching up Holmes I noticed the pipe ash and smiled lol, eitherway I like details, it adds to an effect in the end.... :D

Lol, well, I've never heard of wizard101, but I've played at making houses on my friends sims game before, and that was always the only part that seemed entertaining. I actually doodle blueprints of houses, complete with furnature and such when I'm bored, frequently enough to be a little strange XD

Glad you noticed that! Mind you, my morbid self meant it to be blood... lol! ;P

XD nice, yea. Wizard101 is fun, plus if you don't like wizards there is now pirate101 that has a completely different battle layout. like I said I am a geek, it is just a fun multiplayer online game for kids, teens, and adults.... :)

Oh, I see! Well thats cool. I think I did play some sort of thing like that years ago, and enjoyed it. Can't remember what its called anymore... I never seem to go on the internet now for anything other than quick bursts on here every day or few to get my Shrelock fix ;P

I'm not really- its just not canon. I'm not opposed to it though- I always say to my sister, who ships them, that in alternate universe land, they'd make an adorable couple ;P I'm totally fine with others shipping them, but the idea just doesn't mesh in my view of their world.

There's some dang cute pics of them around though... along with some fairly alarming ones XD

Hello, I am Yugesh from Nepal. I just took a peek at your gallery and i was like "WOW!". Your artworks really conveyed some kind of emotion to my heart and that really made me feel happy. Your artworks convey more emotions than most of the artists on DA. Keep up the good work! :D Here's are free gift locations for you. ----->>> [link] And [link]
