Does your cat do this? I will be working away (or goofing off mightily) and suddenly find that there is a cat in my lap and I’m petting it. Belladonna’s sneakier than Pod most of the time, but they both do it. My question is always, wait, when did this happen?

I actually drew these ages ago for a commission, with grumpy Arthur glaring at a smirking Eames, but due to a hiccup with my scanner and some subsequent fighting with Photoshop, I didn’t get around to posting them.
Eames’ shirt has a lovely pattern in the orange, and his coat suggests a hint of tweed. Arthur’s wearing an elegant windowpane check, subtly patterned tie in a complementary grey, and a cream shirt that sets off his scowl.

The holidays are still far off for most of us, but it’s the time of year when creators have to think about what’s coming up. The Doctor, of course, is always very busy at Christmastime!

Sometimes I get dragged into a fandom and it’s instant love, but sometimes a friend will poke and prod and gently tug me toward a fandom for a long, long time before something sticks.
I finally watched Inception for the first time this year, and had to watch it a second time focusing on everything but the main plot to really enjoy it. The setting and secondary characters, however, are an utter delight, which is how we come to this — a typo turned into a terrible pick-up line.

When I was contemplating ideas for today’s Tentacle Tuesday, this idea came to me (undoubtedly influenced by the steampunk novel I’m reading) to draw the original Holmes and Watson. I borrowed the fashions from one of the old Paget illustrations, so blame him for Holmes’ weird little jabot, and then added in our random steampunky science nerd and of course Biffy, the friendly octopus. He just really likes Watson’s moustache, I feel. It’s quite dashing.
I decided to shade it all in warm greys to give it the feel of an old Victorian daguerreotype or something, which always runs into the question of whether I should color the skin of the people or leave them white as the paper. I compromised by making Holmes very pale indeed, and giving Watson and the scientist a bit more robust warmth. This kind of coloring takes a bit less time than proper color, as the limited palette simplifies things.
Another Man’s Octopus, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper.
Above, you can see the line that made me decide I absolutely had to draw the comic, along with an unimpressed Holmes uttering it. Below, they’ve made it into a frame with my bored 5-armed plushie and one of the original books.

John is most displeased to have woken up to find all the tea in the house sacrificed to one of Sherlock’s mad experiments. Let’s hope for everyone’s sake that Sherlock errs on the side of caution and comes home with a nice big box!
