My love for you literally knows no bounds. I can't pick a favorite here, but if I absolutely had to, I think it would be Watson and Gladstone. Or Clarkie. Or...see this is why I didn't want to choose! ;)

These are all great but I'm still loving the beekeping-pic like mad, it's such a beautiful design. I want it on a t-shirt ^___^

You should pick Clarkie because he is so earnestly seeking your love and attention.

Thank you!

I just ADORE the colored one of Gladstone and Watson. It's so impossibly sweet. And I love your coloring style, I think it adds to the soft friendliness of the pic.

Also, poor Watson. Holmes, I don't think the whole, "disguise yourself as a weird old book-selling man" was the best route to go, after all. Ah well. Lesson learned.

lol, yes that wasn't the soundest of plans. Really. Trying to give everyone a heart attack?

BOO! I'M NOT DEAD.

Should have saved it for a hiccup epidemic.

You drew Clarkie! How cute is that! *squishes him* All of this is fabulous but know I can't stop thinking of Eddie Izzard. "HEEEEEEELLLP I'M COVERED IN BEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!

LOL. Now I can't get the image out of my head of Holmes, covered in bees, in his beekeeping outfit, "Well, this is certainly interesting."

CLARKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

<3 Thank you!

I love that you can see the little glint in Holmes' eyes in the 8th panel of The Empty House comic. Nice work.

LMFAO.

I WISH THAT ACD HAD WRITTEN HOLMES' REACTION TO WATSON PASSING OUT. I MEAN REALLY. YOUR BFF/LOVER PASSES OUT AT THE SIGHT OF YOU. SOME REACTION, MAN. REALLY.

LOLOLOLOL

<3 THANK YOU!

I wonder if they'll make Jude!Watson pass out. I doubt it; not manly enough. However, I can see him punching Holmes, and and then hugging Holmes directly after (because brohugs are ok if one bro just came back from the dead).

re: Empty House Oh, Holmes. *sigh* HOW IS THAT UNEXPECTED? Now he's going to cry, slap you a few times and then you can kiss.

I love this, especially Watson's wide-eyed realization.

And Watson and Gladstone, OMG, gorgeous. I love how they, like most pet-owners and pets, are starting to look alike. ;)

BTW, I recc'd these on my journal, FYI.

From: [identity profile] wheres-walnut.livejournal.com
He just underestimated how much Watson missed him. Such a goose, that Sherlock Holmes.

lol, it's true. They look alike in this one. Good eye.

<3 Thank you!!! That's kind of you!

OH THAT INKED AND COLORED WATSON WITH GLADSTONE! OHHHHHH! Such great color! Such a sweet pose, and the expression is adorable.

And I love that comic...it feels like you put a lot into the expressions here, too, and I LOVE IT. I didn't read the story, but you did such an awesome job drawing Holmes in disguise that I could see that that's what it was...I mean, that's impressive! You're awesome!

These are so lovely - I would frame that Watson and Gladstone portrait and happily hang it on my wall!

Awwwwwwww, thank you! Never-mind framing a picture of Gladstone! WE NEED A REAL GLADSTONE AND HIS PUPPY DOG GRINS.

You've made Watson's face so expressive and emotional. How did you do that??? Amazing. I love all of them. The comic has such nice pacing in the panels where Watson realizes whom he's talking to. Nice work.

At the risk of repeating myself, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS :D Seriously, not just a BRILLIANT comic, but a portrait of Watson and Gladstone too? You're my favourite ♥

Also! Clarkie! BEES! When Watson announced in the books that Holmes had gone off to the country to keep bees I did such a double take. ACD, you are a total troll. Bees? Really? However, that is an excellent beekeeping design you've created :D
