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.

Thanks! Yes, I'm familiar with the new BBC series. It is quite good. I've only read a couple of the books in my youth, but I'd like to read them again.

Wonderful use of colour! Really like the imagery of mere silhouetted feet in the background. Really like how you use the white, too.

I'm surprise there's other who do fanarts based from one of the classic live action series.

I've gotta say I adore this for the coloures more than anything else. The seamless transission of sutel tones is breathtaking.

Oh. Wow. I LOVE this, especially the highlights, and the color is spectacular! Also, I like how the girls skin just stands out from all the color in her dress, hair, and the pavement.

An outstanding piece!

It really does capture the feel of Holmes I think.

And an oil to top it off!

It's times like this I wish I had two brass pennies to rub together, because I would love to purchase such.

He has the perfect expression of detached focus, and it seems true to character that he's looking at the handkerchief the girl clutches, not studying her last expression frozen on her face. As others have said, the colors are amazing--and I love how you can see other people in the background, giving him space to do his business.

I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to write the little scene that this picture made me think of!

"How can he look at the maiden and not care--not feel for her at all, she must have suffered," one of the men standing in the small knot murmured.

Holmes did not look behind him; he spoke as he held the embroidered handkerchief up to the light. "While you stand there and feel sorry for the unfortunate woman, my good man, I am finding the one who slew her, and he shall be put behind bars in the end. Empathy has many faces. Now."

Springing to his feet, he sought and located the local constable standing near and came forward, holding out the evidence.
