What's it like in your funny little minds...? by Melancholy-Minds What's it like in your funny little minds...? by Melancholy-Minds
One of eight prints I sold at Otakuthon.
This one did particularly well!

A girl mentioned something about seeing this (or something very much like it) everywhere on tumblr, which had me confused since I've only just now uploaded the piece.

_____________________________________________________________________

The modernized BBC program Sherlock is my favorite screen adaptation of the infamous detective next to the Granada series with Jeremy Brett. Since the second series' finale, I've run through both nonsensical and plausible Reichenbach theories in my mind, as well play-throughs of how John will take to Sherlock's reappearance...

Now all I can think about is how Sherlock will react to John's Watson's new 'stache.

Ooh, sorry for the late reply! I haven't frequented dA as much these days because the school year's wrapping up and the projects are piling up accordingly. 

Both the background and the colouring style/palette were very much an experiment for me, so I'm glad you like the piece!

mmmmmm.... he does things to me! x.x
Only in this role tho! I've not seen a lot of his other stuff but I've seen pics/clips of him in other roles and he doesn't do it for me nearly as much as his holmes!

I wish he'd keep the hair regularly (though he hates it)-- it balances out his features and softens the angularity of his cheekbones while bringing attention to their overall prominence in his facial structure... It's really hard to explain, haha!

Bless the hair dressers who gave him that look for Sherlock. :heart:

From what little I've seen, I think you express yourself quite well in English!

Anyhow, I deeply appreciate the sentiment behind your comment. :)

UGH. I love your use of color in this! It's fantastic! I love how you used the hexagon pattern too.

Thank you very much! I was trying to be a bit bolder with my use of colours in this piece, so I'm glad that it's being well-received.  

The hexagon pattern is a reference to Holmes' hobby of bee-keeping after he retired as a consulting detective. :)

Amazing. Sherlock is gorgeous. Didn't care for John's mustache.

"John, witnessing a traumatic, emotionally scarring event with psychologically detrimental long-term repercussions is no reason to grow unbecoming facial hair. Shave it off."

He's probably gonna shave off the mustache if he's getting married.

I was greatly inspired by her art. In any case, it's a great compliment to have my art even remotely compared to hers!
