The Final Problem by SecondGoddess The Final Problem by SecondGoddess
Finally finished my Sherlock diptych-thingy!

(I already posted the left half with Moriarty ([link]) last week, but I think the two halves look much better together :) )

Andrew Scott as Moriarty, Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes :heart:

Thank you so much for this wonderful, thoughtful and poetic comment. It's definitely one of the best ones I've ever got on a drawing. :heart:

:skull:Words are just the ashes already forgotten my fellow creature; for what you've done here is the compelling strike of evidence, the ability to allure the silent motionless stride and the essence of pure life at the hour given. The angel and the demon I see;...You've done well my friend, you've unearthed a masterpiece from the realms of the mind you possess,...Once more, you've done well.:skull:

this is excellent. so moody & atmospheric, it's got a real film noir vibe to it. i love the dark shading & the contrast with the small slivers of light coming through. really good.

I especially love the way you've emulated their looking at each other with just the wall separating. That part gives me the chills, it's like they can read each others' minds or something :wow:

Yes! That was awesome! As if their connection was so strong that they could feel each other's presence even through the wall.....

After all they are the greatest minds, a wall is no hindrance. They would be able to look beyond it too. Amazing, really! :aww:

Like probably most people here I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil, but I started to practise seriously when I was around 13, which was 10 years ago :)
