Roommates 270 - Detective by AsheRhyder Roommates 270 - Detective by AsheRhyder
In which the artist fails to avoid more BBC shows, resulting in some minor timeline/multiverse fandom headaches for those paying attention,

OR

In which the French and the English fail to get along, but for an entirely different reason than usual in this building.

Because an Inspector and a Consulting Detective must, on principle, clash to some degree.


I did say I was going through a bit of a Sherlock phase. (More like frenzy...) In all honesty, I drew this one well before watching the majority of the show.




Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
Holmes and Watson belong to Doyle (this version to Moffat, Gatiss, Cumberbatch, and Freeman).

I hope you are happy to know that this time there no confusion of identities when I saw the panel of this comic, and that I also (almost) (again) fell out of my chair. (BTW, I totally absolutely love you right now for including Sherlock) (and John).
(and question: Will there be John Sherlock shippage?)

Probably not; not for lack of shipping on the artist's part, but because I moved on to other fandoms. My ships are many and vast.

btw Ashe, what type of inking do you use?

My memory is a little spotty, but I think by this point I was using fountain pens for line work, filled with Noodler's "Heart of Darkness" ink. It doesn't run or bleed when used with markers {unless you really work at it or don't let the ink dry properly}, which is good because the shading was done with Copic grayscale markers. I'll shift between Warm, Neutral, Cool, and Toner spectra of grayscale depending on what I've used to death and which set needs replacing or refilling, but it tends 3, 5, and 7 on the shade.

Once I picked up the "Heart of Darkness", I stopped using other inking tools for linework unless I needed exceptionally thin lines, which would fall to whatever ink pen I still had that would work.

I hope that helps.

Just watched Sherlock... and, consequently, read many of the original stories. Makes re-reading this so much more fun. Wish there was much, much more of it, though. The show's gold. And the series endings... especially the most recent one. Any theories about it? I have a notebook dedicated to theories about the end of season 3 myself.

I am terrible with enduring cliffhangers, and so have pretty much decided not to watch any of the last episodes of a season until the next one is out. It's the only way I have any hope of surviving.

*points skyward* I have a weird headcanon-y theory that I feel like sharing for why there's more than one Sherlock Holmes and John Watson hanging around. Sherlock Holmes is the most portrayed human character in film, with 254 movies and 75 different actors portraying him. We've seen characters being able to switch between different interpretations (like Valjean). I like to think that originally there was only one version of Holmes and Watson that could switch between or suppress different versions of themselves; but as more and more sometimes vastly different takes on the characters began to show up, they couldn't be contained in one vessel, and the major personalities (Rathbone, Brett, Cumberbatch and others) split off into their own separate forms. Thus, RDJ and Cumberbatch. Also the same happened to Watson of course, because you can't have Sherlock Holmes without his Boswell.

I love love LOVE this version of Sherlock. While yes Robert Downing Jr's version made me fangirl big time (because yes I am a RDJ fan and because he did do the role justice for the films); this one is just one of my all time favorite versions for a multitude of reasons (one reason is that for some reason I hear Alan Rickman a little when that version of Sherlock talks even though I know perfectly well he is not him nor is he related to Rickman in any way).

:giggle: Oh, that's fun. Sherlock and John are sure to make a splash in this fandom palace, just like they did in mine. They share a suite in my palace that looks like 221b Baker St., but they also have an adjoining room apiece for their own interests. :no: I hate Sherlock's "at home forensics lab in the fridge" habit too. Sherlock is so much fun, isn't it?! :X I can't believe that I live in America; if I were studying abroad in Britain, I wouldn't have to wait for the new season! Sherlock, come back; Watson misses you, as do all your Sherlockians, book fans, movie fans, TV fans, great and small!
