Grow out your moustache once more Watson, TAKE YOUR REVENGE upon this fork-tongued knave who has robbed you of your birthright as a Watson! You have already earned that manly flourish of follicles, now CULTIVATE it and watch Holmes sneer in purest envy as you take back what should be yours!
. . .
I may be a little bit of a Tory when it comes to the choice between Watson clean-shaven and the TRUE Watson (moustachioed); the only excuse I will accept for a Doctor Watson absent the magnificent mouse-catcher (in the English style of course!) which should be decorating their upper lip as a badge of office is that the Watson in question is FEMALE! (I'm a Tory, not a complete reactionary!).
Please accept my compliments (and one suspects that I should advance apologies for my outburst of temporary insanity; in my defence a Watson MUST wear a moustache or see every other incarnation laugh at him in the great Doctor's Office in the Sky - from Nigel Bruce to Jude Law they will heckle, although admittedly 'being asked to lose the moustache by the future Mrs Watson' is a pretty fair defence).
Oh God, I am so envious of your colouring-skills and your faithful portrayal of the guys. You manage to drag out all the small details that makes them SO recognisable, and yet they still keep that cartoonish/stylish look which I am absolutely smitten with. I wish wish wish I could get to this point with my drawings, but alas, I'll take consolation watching your stuff.
Back to the drawing; John is adorable; I like that you kept him somewhat 'slim' and a bit more faithful to his original looks, than I've seen elsewhere here on DA. His expression is to DIE for and SO in character with... with everything that has to do with Watson I always find that John is the hard one to draw because he's got this distinguish look, while still looking like an 'everyday man'; does that even make sense? Either way, you nailed it. And Sherlock. Oh lord he cracks me up. You got him to perfection here;I LOVE his eyes and his body-language. Just perfect.
Oh, and just a last note to compliment your ability to blend those colours; I am in love with it!
gah! I can't watch the video in Germany but at least I have this great little drawing too look at to shorten my wait for the next season..They would indeed make a great couple, sadly this is not going to happen...I think you portrayed (a part of) their relationship very well here...Love Watson's annoyed face and Sherlock's arrogance
Thank you ever so kindly for the chuckle! I can see where John would get a little frustrated living with Sherlock. Yet, you must remember his line in "A Study in Pink": "Who would want me as a flatmate?"
A second later, a body bag opens and there's Sherlock peering into it. Well, it's always been said that opposites attract, and you can't get two people any more opposite than Dr. John Watson and Sherlock Holmes!
Keep up the good work and would you mind if I put you on my watch list for your Sherlock stuff?
I hope I'm not spoiling anything by telling you that our beloved detective has faked his own suicide and will come back to our beloved Army doctor!!! I've been reading fanfiction.net and, in one tale, Sherlock even explains how he did it!!!
I also remember seeing a diagram that showed a lorry (British word for "truck") filled past the gunwales with soft stuff for Sherlock to fall on. Yet, my question is this:
Wouldn't Watson, despite his grief, hear the truck pull away?
Trucks aren't the most quietest things on the planet, as we both know.
With this in mind, we all know now that there's going to be a Season 3!!!!!
