Elementary, My Dear Watson by DulcetFancy Elementary, My Dear Watson by DulcetFancy
Ah, yes, the undeniable Sherlock Holmes, a classic in and unto himself. There’s no denying that Jeremy Brett is perhaps the best actor to portray this character…sorry Cumberbatch fans. Excuse the puffs of smoke, ’tis late and I got a bit lazy doing that bit. There are probably other flaws that I somehow missed, but I don’t really care to go back in to tweak it. This one’s a bit dreary for my liking, there’s practically no color! Ack, pudgy hands…I really need to practice hands…I hate drawing them. Of all the caricatures I’ve done so far Brett was by far the most challenging. It’s probably obvious that I enjoy the old classic TV series from the ’80s. I liked how enigmatic and charming Brett was in that, he really seemed to “understand” Sherlock’s perplexing personality. He’s the true Sherlock in my opinion! Or at least as close to the character as I imagined him from the books!

I think I'm going to do Miss Marple next...the Geraldine McEwan one, methinks, (only because she's ADORABLE and has the cutest clothes!) and then after that I'll do Adrian Monk. Why, yes I am doing a mystery detective series of dollies, how'd you guess?

Hours: 7 1/2 not counting the months in between where it sat as an unfinished sketch.

OMG
This drawing looks exactly like a portrait of Vasily Livanov who was and actor performing Holmes back in 1980s. I think you should look up for it in google, the resemblance is fantastic and very explaining why many of east european fans find all the modern Sherloks similar to him in some ways)

Aww, that's cool! I've never heard of Vasily Livanov, and I looked him up, and they do look eerily similar! :D It's kinda funny too, because both
Vasily Livanov and Jeremy Brett did their own versions of Sherlock at about the same time. It's amazing how so many different people around the world are inspired by him.
