Throwback Thursday: Sherlock and devil dogs

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third novel published and is hailed for its gothic, creepy edge, mist covered moors, murder and horrific hounds. Conan Doyle at his best.

I bought it back in the late 70's or early 80's and also fashioned it for pipes.  They were originally fitted with a dart board.  Good Bargain!

Happy Birthday, Sherlock Holmes!!! (According to Christopher Morley, and accepted by most fans, our beloved consulting detective was born January 6, 1854...)

'Ello! I am new here.
 
Sorry if I bore you with details
My day to day schedule is askew. I am up until 2-3 am. Drawing, playing Chess and most importantly, reading. Two years ago, I harbored not a speck of interest for a 1033 page collection of stories by Arthur Conan Doyle about an egocentric cocaine addict lying in my cupboard. But I have grown a lot since then. I was reading Edward de Bono's work: "Lateral Thinking", a few weeks ago just to give my brain the kick it sorely lacked. Then I happened upon that burly volume my Mom was forcing me to read a couple of years ago. My mindset was totally different this time round, so I picked it up and started reading. One introduction by Loren Estleman later, I was definitely most intruiged. The first chapter in A Study In Scarlet later, I was hooked. Desperately. Since then I have read almost all the stories in the first volume; in a collection of two. I have come to greatly admire the eccentric genius of Holmes and the 'acute' observations made by Watson. I have got back to drawing recently and my style has drastically changed. I have also been watching the BBC series for some time. Tonight I decided to draw a faceless figure. A faceless figure with gravity. The book was lying just beside me. So I went with it. After drawing the original lineart, my interpretation looked more classic than contemporary. Then I got to coloring. I just couldn't find the perfect color. Light brown? Olive? And then, would a pitch black empty face go with those colors? So I just searched up Sherlock. I saw Mr. Eggs Benedict wearing a black pea coat with a blue muffler. I tried that combination on the previous lineart and I really liked it. So the lineart was redone in a more modern manner. I then did the hair, and I really liked what I had done. I then decided to go completely modern with the adaptation. I never thought I would look at Benedict Cumberbatch for so long. Then going complete nuts, I splashed some red onto it, gave Holmes a pipe(cause he needs it), nudged him to the side and drew a cityscape. Seeing so much negative space, I decided to add a title. I colored it red, put in my sign aaaaaand voilà! We have this. I could be happier with it, but this is it for now. Please be completely candid in your criticisms and opinions. I shall take no offense.

+James O'Leary​ You are absolutely right. Amazingly, I already got a small audience at the BBC Sherlock community who like how I merged the two.

On Sunday, I tried to post a button with this message on it, but the photo came out blurry. So, here's a poster of the same.

As a child I wrote a letter to Holmes( you know, 221b, Baker Street) and surprisingly I received a reply. Later I found out, there's a museum there, and my English teacher, told me that they store every letter, written to them. Oh! I so wanna find my letter, someday in the pile!! Till then I'll just keep staring at my hot junkie genius!!!  #CumberbabeForever  !!

I have serious doubts that they keep every letter. The corkboard upstairs has examples of letters sent, but I wouldn't say it's complete, nor that they archive them afterward. In fact, I've never heard of that.
