Mr. Sherlock Holmes by Izabella Mr. Sherlock Holmes by Izabella
I love Sherlock Holmes. He is one sexy beast.

:sherlock: :lick:

*ahem* anyway, this took about 5 hours or so on Open Canvas along with a heck of a lot of cursing and consumption of the diet coke.

This picture was based on the most singular version portrayed by 1940s actor, Basil Rathbone. :worship:

Definitely impressive... I'm pretty young but I've read ALL the adventures, case files, etc.! I love the details...
Have you seen BBC's new series, Sherlock? (Don't mean to brag) but I think I'm a pretty qualified critic and I think it couldn't be a better fit- i'd urge any fan to check it out! It's modernized but so, so accurate, immaculate, and just addicting.
Well, that'd be my personal recommendation for you and again, breathtaking work.

Very nice. I love Basil Rathbone as Sherlock. I know he's not exactly canon (Nazis?) but he's the sort of holmes I like to watch now and then. Jeremy Brett shall always be my favourite (Not many 16 year-olds will tell you that!) but I shall always have a special place in my Mind Palace (reference) for Basil.

When I first saw that I thought it's Watson. It's not much like other pictures of Sherlock Holms. Then I remembered about Hastings from Agatha Christie's Poirot. It's him, in my opinion.
No matter, this is a very good drawing. Well done!

A remarkable actor whose character you have managed to capture just as he captured Sherlock's.

A great pity that the movies strayed so much from the original story-lines. Still, can't have everything, and they were still enjoyable.

Fantastic job.

What an amazing likeness of Basil Rathbone. By far THE original Sherlock Holmes.

Don't worry about the diet coke; at least you didn't go all canonical and consume cocaine!
