Elementary by OtisFrampton Elementary by OtisFrampton
This is a digital commission featuring a master of exposition and his clueless pals.

The original line art measures 11 x 17 inches and was drawn on Blue Line art board in pencil. The final artwork was colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me coloring this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

I really like this. The art style is more cartoony, less realistic, but you still were able to convey the seriousness of the situation and the gloomy atmosphere.

Great depiction of Holmes and Watson at the scene of the crime, though I doubt that Holmes would be smoking a pipe at this moment. A mere quibble, though.

I accidentally deleted the article from my Messages, so I can't give you the exact title, but it was put up in the last day or so - It basically talked about how the image of Sherlock has changed over time, and how he was the first "superhero" with the first 'original' "superpower" - forensic science.

Good read, if you still have it.
