Watson and Holmes by elisabethzhang Watson and Holmes by elisabethzhang
I wanted to draw Sherlock fanart with some of the lovely patterns featured in the show. I'm a sucker for old fashioned wallpaper patterns.
I realize parts of their faces may seem off... I had some trouble with the proportions of their features.
The pattern above John's head is based off his Christmas sweater in episode 4.

Oh my goodness. What. How.

Your portraits are wonderful, I love how you sort of blend the two together. I just can't understand, it's so good. And whatever you're saying about how you got the proportions off totally went over my head because they both look fabulous. Darn you for being so talented.

I love it when the artist brings out small items in their art. The wallpaper and the sweater design are great as background design for our brave boys.

This is really well done. What kind of colored pencils did you use. (If that's what you used.)
Also, I'm enjoying the subtle blue tones. Melikes! :3

This is phenomenal! It's not often that I find art where the artist has truly captured the subjects' essences. I'm loving the tie in with the patterns; very original (especially using John's sweater as one of the patterns) Just magnificent!

Aww thank you so much! Your comment made me so happy like you wouldn't believe! I just love the John's wardrobe on the show - he is precious in a cozy sweater.
