This piece is really giving me the chills, because it looks so deeply into the very mess that Sherlock is inside.
But John is always there for him - it's so hartbreaking and - warming at the same time. I love it <3

What indeed O_o
this is on so many levels of awesome. The ghostly images give such a cold and unwelcome atmosphere, but how in the center it's hopeful and touching. You my friend, rock :nod:

If it's possible for something to be spooky and heartwarming at the same time, this does that. Love it.

This is just incredibly beautiful, in so many ways. I love it.

I think Moriarty gave him something. Or maybe it was a bad batch?
rababco Featured By Owner May 9, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Can't stop staring at it. :O It makes me really want to know what's going on. All the different images, hallucinated about who know what. The way John is kneeling next to Sherlock with one hand on his wrist as if checking for a pulse and other hand is brushing against Sherlock's face while he looks at him with concern. It seems like Sherlock's life is fading and John knows it, which is why he keeps checking for a pulse to make sure he's still alive. He's trying to comfort Sherlock who's frightened and haunted by thoughts and ghosts. One has to wonder if he's even taking drugs, or as one person put it, if it's just all the things he sees. It might be after he come back after being thought to be dead and is suffering from some kind of PSTD and John understands 'cause he's been through the same thing.

Insanely awesome!

This reminds me of the scene in Howl's Moving Castle, when Howl calls the spirits of darkness because he is depressed about his hair.

I adore this drawing. The more I look at it, the more things I see, the 'unsolved cases', the bat coming out of the pinned bats. I love John and Sherlock's faces, especially John's expression and how blank Sherlock's looks, like he's completely shut down. I also love Sherlock's hair, the colors in it. I always seem to find myself back at this piece and finding something new about it.

I absolutely love this. I find myself coming back to look at it almost every month. Reignites my love for Sherlock every time I do!
varialome Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
okay i get that they can't make the new sherlock addicted to cocaine like the old sherlock - even know that would be interesting - but caffeine ?, seriously ? caffeine is for sissies
awesome painting by the way :)

Beautiful! I love the postures. And hallucinations. The guy on the couch creeps me out though.
Well done:D
ElliotGrey Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Student Writer
Well, Holmes was known to experiment with things; considering the time period, I'd deduce he's gotten a hold of some mescaline from the Americas. :XD:
heidinanookie Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
omg, this is such a famous painting by now! I totally deserves that DD.
It's double-cool because it's referencing Dr. Who. ;)

This piece seems so surreal to me that it just strikes me in a way that I cannot comprehend. It's wonderful.

Very neo-Goya. The sleep of reason does, indeed, breed monsters.
