I ARTED A THING.
I literally haven’t held a paintbrush since last summer, and then on a whim I decided to splatter paint a Sherlock silhouette. xD
But anyways, can you actually tell its Sherlock’s silhouette?
I don’t know if it just looks like that to me since I already know who it’s supposed to be…
Oh what fun!

This is incredible.
Oh… oh my…
Martin Freeman discusses Series 3 of Sherlock and also fan art
Martin’s interview on Comic Relief
If anyone was ever in doubt of how Martin feels about this stuff, here’s a quote from our interview with Amanda Abbington on the subject:
Kristina: … honestly, my first question is, what made you decide to start interacting with the fans and the fandom in general?
Amanda: Because you’re all so lovely to Martin. And you’re all really nice. You all seem very intelligent, funny, and talented girls. Seeing some of the artwork and some of the stuff that was being written. It’s so good. Martin’s very very very very private—freakishly private, which is a good thing. I love that he is. But I just wanted to say thank you on his behalf and say hi and I fully support what you’re doing. It’s fine! And I’m not one of those girlfriends or wives who goes, “Those bitches!” I’m not like that at all, and I just wanted to say, you’re doing a fabulous job, because you are. I think it’s lovely how much you love Martin, and I love it. I genuinely love it.
Kristina: …You said that Martin found Tumblr first. Did that come before or after you started playing on the Facebook group?
Amanda: After.Everything came afterward. So we looked at Tumblr first and just used to giggle a lot. “Look I’m a kitten, why am I a kitten?” It went from there, really. I thought it was really fun.
Kristina: What’s your favorite thing or the most ridiculous thing you’ve seen?
Amanda: There’s one picture. Oh I’m laughing now. [Martin with the BAFTA, next to a picture of a hedgehog. Amanda has it saved on her phone and shows it.] But we love all the artwork. Some of the paintings are just amazing. And the knitted stuff! I got sent a knitted otter and a hedgehog. I love it. They’re upstairs. I won’t let the children play with them.
Kristina: These are mine!
Ardy: This is not a toy.
Amanda: No, these are Mummy’s.
You guys. YOU GUYS. I love you all. I tried something I’ve never done before and linearted with a different tool in Sai… then with the combined powers of Photoshop and Sai, I coloured this. I’m working towards the style I’ve always wanted to capture!!!
Also hi new followers! Gosh, I should probably tidy this place up a bit…
I’ve been watching you paint this and stopping myself from stroking the screen.
Plugging this for kafers because HE LOOKS SO PRETTY.

Wooly Jumper. Dying.
Andy of Bakerstreet! aka myself as a Great Mouse Detective character!
I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I WANT MYSELF DRAWN AS A GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE CHARACTER
Oh crap, I think I got a bit confused, didn’t I? ;)
So, Watson from “Elementary” with Granada Holmes and BBC Sherlock props (I’m not sure if London cab can be called a prop, though).
Why? Because why the hell not?!
A close up attached, because you won’t probably be able to see them properly at the top picture (Tumblr resizes huge ass photos).
P.S. Rest in peace, dear Mr Brett.
This is brilliant! I love that all these different versions have been mashed together to create such a beautiful homage to Holmes and Watson on the TV.
The Woman interacting with Sherlock. Wearing Sherlock’s coat, Loubotin shoes, Azagury dress, ‘battle dress’ - all knitted by yours truly. The look would not be complete without the riding crop, of course.
I am making John next, I swear! And possibly Molly.
Do you know what he calls you?
This is stunning!
