Holmes sketchdump by AdAbsurdum Holmes sketchdump by AdAbsurdum
SHERLOCK HOLMES. Because I love him so.

...the git.

I did this on the back of an assignment, so the type on the other side shows through a bit.

I get these yearly Sherlock Holmes cravings and generally end up rereading the Conan Doyle corpus and compulsively watching the Jeremy Brett series.

...with regards to the upcoming movie, I have only this to say: if Robert Downey Jr pulls a Gerard Butler on this character, I'll commit hara-kiri.

May 2009: OK, I just saw the trailer for the new movie.
My prognosis: it's going to be an utterly heinous affair all around, if the slow-mo shirtless boxing is any indication.

Robert Downey Jr is not a Sherlock Holmes make. As bad as that sounds, I think you know what I mean and agree with me.

Anyway, I like your Sherlock image. Very well done. The smile... eh, maybe a bit too angled, but it works.

Dare i ask, what are some of your favorite tales of the Greatest Detective?

I have discovered a true kindred spirit. This is the exact thing that I thought when I saw the trailer. Never saw the film. Did you?

The top left one perfectly describes how I feel at school!

simply enchanting, the way your style captures an erratic overly compulsive and hyper deductive person is amazing especially "The Game is afoot!" that alone captures a wily and bold streak to an otherwise composed and calm person

"if Robert Downey Jr pulls a Gerard Butler on this character, I'll commit hara-kiri." you woulnd't be talking about the horrible job Butler did to the character of erik in phantom of the opera would you? because i agree. litterary characters (esp. the male ones) get DESTROYED (personality wise at least) every time they make a movie for them :P
love the sketch by the way

RDJ was fairly accurate to how holes was portrayed in the books.
(or at least in the Musgrave Ritual)
