Holmes' Happy Ending by HugMonster341 Holmes' Happy Ending by HugMonster341
I must admit I always loved the fact that in the end Holmes essentially said 'Sod crime, I'm off to Sussex to keep bees. Been nice knowing you all, come along Watson or we'll miss our train . . .'

Interesting to practice drawing a slightly older person than in my usual sketches. However, I always Holmes with a pallid and slightly ageless countenance due to his extreme thinness so I tried to keep the wrinkles fairly subtle. I also dappled a tiny bit of flesh colour over the paler colours I used for his skin in an attempt to stop it from looking too clay-like. In other news I HATE drawing slicked back hair . . .
