Gottle o' Gear by naturalshocks Gottle o' Gear by naturalshocks
TUMBLR POST

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson in BBC's Sherlock. I used screencaps from 1x03 The Great Game as references.

Graphite pencils, black coloured pencil, acrylic paint, fineliners, white gel pen and black marker on A4 Canson Illustration.

More Sherlock fan art HERE.

Please don't repost.

I'm terrifically sorry, but I can't seem to remember what gottle o' gear is--what it means. Someone help?

Ventriloquists can't use labial sounds, so when a less-skilled one says 'bottle of beer' it usually comes out as 'gottle o' gear'. In Sherlock, Moriarty made John say the phrase to basically show that he's his puppet. :bucktooth:

It looks so realistic that at first glance I thought they were black and white screen shots.

I really like this design. I've seen the other two, so consider this a blanket comment for all three. The breaking up into three parts, the silhouettes, the bright colors - it all looks very clean and attractive, and the drawings are beautiful.

The colour is fitting as always and this looks just wonderful! :heart:
I love the scene you drew & the light of the torch. (And also how Sherlock seems to look at John? <3) And of course the scene where he is wearing the bombs.

Thank you so much! <3 I think I kind of blew it by choosing the bottom screencap, because it had a somewhat hazy look and the previous ones had harsher shadows. It's going to stand out from the rest of them. :/
