Three! Three whole pages inked, ah-ah-ah-aaah. I’m going to try to keep up some sort of useful pace with this project so that someday I might actually get the whole book done and able to be printed in one way or another. After Sherlock’s gratuitous snottiness in the first one, John’s very pleased to see Lestrade’s face and have the prospect of a case to keep Sherlock amused.

In keeping with the tradition, above you can see the painstaking pattern on Sherlock’s chair, as well as John’s welcoming smile for Lestrade. Below, you can see the piece in a frame, though it will have a long wait before it can go visit anyone at home. Also, a gratuitous hedgehog.

    Yay! LESTRADE!!! I love how the light is shining behind him (I can almost hear a faint chorus sung by a choir) – one really gets the sense of how grateful John is to see him and be rescued from the results of Sherlock’s boredom.

    I just adore the gorgeous textures and patterns that are a part of this series. Beautiful detail.

    Yay, thank you! I have plans to get all my favorites in here, hopefully, and Lestrade will definitely make it into a few panels before they hare off and ditch him. šŸ˜‰

    The textures are a pain to draw but the results are worth it, I think.
