Why the Hades can I just see Moriarty as Ursala, or Maleficent, or someone? Either way Grimm fairy tales rock! Moriarty would be the perfect person for the evil stepmother in Mirror, Mirror. This is amazing.

I love the arrangement of all the different pieces - the birds, the newspaper, Sherlock, the blood... Everything is just gorgeous and heart-shattering. I thought it was a photograph or a photoshop at first. I had to see the progress to believe it was a drawing. Beautiful work :heart:

Why would you do that? I'm crying again...
Your art is absolutely amazing and now that I'm a fresh Superwholockian, the Sherlock side of your gallery seems even more amazing than it did before. You are a real motivator when it comes to art, you know that?
Hip-hip-hurraa! :#1:

Gorgeous work, even though this is quite a tragic episode, I love the vibrant colors and how you incorporated the newspaper. Like the addition of the pigeons as well.

Saw it in a feature, had to double check if I'd faved it... And I hadn't yet! Ah! While honestly, this might be my favourite series 2 artwork, it's just so powerful! And vibrant! And there's something horribly beautiful about his face in this. I mean obviously you're brilliant at drawing, but it's the compositions, the colours, the birds, that really make this such an incredible piece!

I love you for doing this scene. It totally employs me, since I've seen this episode on Monday.
Had also tried to interpret the scene, but I am currently not satisfied with his face. :P
I think it is very difficult to paint his face. I love how you've managed that. Haven't seen better
pictures than you did about this episode.

Aw, I do hope you give it another go. I'd love to see your artwork. <3 And I agree, his face is difficult to draw, but I do love the challenge. 8D

Glad you like it! :hug: Thank you!
