Sherlock Returns by superstarwordgirl Sherlock Returns by superstarwordgirl
This is my first seriouis attempt at drawing Sherlock and Watson. I can't decide how I feel about the finished picture. I don't think Sherlock looks very Sherlock-y.:hmm: (Yep, I already know he looks way younger than he actually is.) Which is funny because in my random sketches it's usually John I have a hard time getting right. Not that I think he turned out perfect either...I liked this a lot when I finished it, but the enthusiasm's gone a bit downhill from there. So. IDK. Let you be the judge.

'Nyway, this is the first of many Sherlock stuffs you will be seeing from me.:plotting:I. LOVE. SHERLOCK.:love:When I say SHERLOCK, I'm referring to the show. When it comes to the characters, I cannot decide if I love John or Sherlock more. All I know is that it's definately love. I don't think I've ever watched anything and thought two characters went so brilliantly together, and I can't pick a favorite because I couldn't have one without the other. I CAN'T DO IT, I CAN'T.

*recomposing myself*

Sooo this is Sherlock and John coming across stuff on da web. If you're involved with this fandom you know what's out there, lol. Sherlock is disgusted with people's attempts at trying to figure out how he's alive (which I won't even look at; afraid of spoilers), while John is more concerned with the obsessed shippers fanart (and that would be referencing the SERIOUS stuff- not the hand-holding, etc, but the MATURE stuff).:giggle:Now I was a tad concerned with the concept because things like this often get labeled as "hate art", which is far from the truth. While I, for the record, don't ship them as a couple, I'm not a very judgemental person. This in fact has nothing to do with whether people ship the two or not. Just a funny idea that popped into my mind and I am hoping will not offend anybody on either sides of the matter.:)Hope this makes sense.

*sigh* Please ignore the wallpaper behind them. Don't look at it, it will poison your eyes with its hideousness. And if you can't keep from a slight glance, don't let your eyes linger on it for too long...you'll regret it. I know because I do.

Erm, I feel like I had a lot more to say about this picture. Must not have been very important.

Anywayyyyy hope ya'll like this, and NEXT time I upload Sherlock stuff it will be better.:)We all start somewhere. Plus I personally thought it was a rather clever concept which I haven't come across yet already so I felt the need to put it up before I find out someone else has drawn the same thing...this fandom is big...

NOTE TO PEOPLE I OWE STUFF TO: your requests/comissions are coming up next.

The wallpaper isn't that bad. :)

I've seen other fandoms do this, but you are first I've seen for this show. 

It's very nicely done. :)

Sherlock fanart!  Sherlock WOULD probably roll his eyes and delete his inbox; John would get curious and probably blush, or look semi-ill, when faced with Sherwatson art that was beyond the bromance level.  And the HP/Sherlock crossover/AU art?  Forget about it.  They'd both be spamming the users with hate comments, or at least Sherlock would because he's a troll like that.

:XD:Haha yeahhhh, glad someone agrees with me. Yeah, Sherlock would be quite funny about it. Almost makes me hope that in season three the public will go crazy for the idea of them as a couple same as the fandom has done just so we can see Sherlock react, lol.

Hee hee hee!  I doubt there'll be a kiss, but since same-sex marriage was recently made legal in England... maybe.

I've never thought of Sherlock and John as a couple, and then if you watch interview with the creators and actors, they themselves say it's not a romance thing. So I don't think they'll get together, but I can see why everyone else loves them together, haha.:)Ah, it is legal in Enlgand? Never knew.

Only recently.  I found out about it because of another fandom, which is like Hetalia only it uses cities and not countries.  It's called Cities.  Also, I ship Sherlock and John together in all levels of homosocial/homosexual interaction, from bromance to romance and everything in between.  No obvious notes of attraction were present in the books between them, but considering modern social standards, I can see why a lot of fans think that romance is implied on the show.
And in order to deliver the ultimate buzz kill, I hear that Martin Freeman's wife in real life is going to play Mary Watson this season.  :nod: That's right.  John Hammish Watson is tying the knot this season.
