It's So Overt... by Gellyh It's So Overt... by Gellyh
...It's Covert!

Last Monday, me and Sanna went to see Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows here in my favourite theatre. And I can tell you, it was freaking glorious!! She had already seen it with some of her other friends, but that, of course, didn't stop her from watching it again.

And since she refused to answer a simple question; "Who would you want to be; Holmes or Watson?", I chose to paint Holmes (for obvious reasons) for her as a belated Christmas gift.

So happy new year instead, Sanna! :dummy:


Sherlock Holmes the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Portrayed by Robert Downey Jr.

Brilliant! I love how you've drawn his stubble. I can't do that without making it look like a bloke with the plague all over his chin :C

I went to see the movie a few days ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but there was this woman in the theatre who laughed like a banshee at the most inappropriate parts, like the chase through the woods. What was so funny about that....?

A drunken hobo attended the first half hour of the movie, or so. Kept talking out loud during some parts. At some point he left, though. Thank god!

Gosh, I soooo want to see this movie, sooo badly, but I don't want to hear the german synch of it for fucks sake >_> And since well, there's no chance of doing taht in a movie theatre or nearby I'll have to wait for the DvD... or you know, totally legaly watch it online. But I don't want to do that either, because well, it's Sherlock Holmes, it's Robert Downey Jr., and the low quality would just kill me. So I guess waiting it is. :I
Anyway...awesome art, so awesome it'd need a better word than just awesome. I simply love how you've done the metal :) *tries to reach out to touch the beard* ehrm and of course Downey and his fabulous facial hair x3

I feel sorry for you :/ I really do! God, I'd absolutely hate it if they'd dub all the movies here. I don't get the point of it either. What's wrong with subtitles? But I believe we've already talked about this. I hope you can watch it sooner than you'd think!

Drawing his facial hair hurt my poor hand, though xD Had to draw lots of spaztic lines rapidly, pressing down on my tablet pen pretty hard and then quickly and equally spaztically erase bits out of there. But it was still good fun! Thank you!

Lol I know. But he was adorable. I just wanted to hug him. I couldn't stop imagining Sherlock's brother as Gordon from V for Vendetta.

I have to say that I probably enjoyed this one better than the first. Not sure what it is... Perhaps because it stirred more different emotions, or because of the intense tension...? But I simply can't wait to get my hands on the DVD!

Indeed...It definately caused new emotions and I think the movie as a whole did better with the added action. With the first one you kind of feel that its a long movie (but in a good way) where as with this one it just kept you going the entire time :) it'll be a movie i wont watch for long intervals though to preserve the surprises and whatnot...

oh guys did any1 of you watch the end of the first season of kuroshitsuji? if you have i swear the people that made the first movie had seen it too. The plot lines for it was a lot like it and the time line is only like a year off. Coincidence? I think not!
