My Mind Rebels at Stagnation by SmudgeThistle My Mind Rebels at Stagnation by SmudgeThistle
My personal version of Sherlock Holmes. :) He's not based on any particular version but it's safe to say he's influenced by many. I feel like I'm going to be spamming you guys with a lot of Sherlock Holmes related stuff, hope you don't mind.

So this took A LOT of work to finish (it's the mst complex digital work I've ever done!) and comments are greatly appreciated. Please tell me what you think!

This piece is going to be published as a part of Luke Benjamen Kuhns graphic novel "The Case of the Crystal Blue Bottle". [link] It is based on his story of the same name that has been published in a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories by various authors, "Sherlock's Home: The Empty House". The proceeds from these works are going to raising awareness for the Undershaw Preservation Trust, in an effort to restore the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There web-site can be found here: [link]

Needless to say, I am deeply honoured to be a part of this project. I will keep you posted as far as things go, and do take a look!

Sherlock! I love the stories about him and your Picture is great.
And it gives me the exact same Feeling that I have, when I'm reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyles books :D

It is a very nice version. I love the fireplace in the background. (Yes, I miss it.) I see traces of BBC Sherlock in the mantel. I like it.

That's too bad. At least its there. No, I don't suppose you would be allowed to stab it. Maybe the one downstairs? :XD: Yes, it does work.
