Anonymous asked: Hi! May I ask how you make your little Sherlock characters? It's just that I've seen that style of little people for other friends before and I've always wondered if it was a website where you could kind of customize them. Or is it just a style? Any info you could give me would be awesome! Thanks!
Hello! You certainly may ask the question, but I’m afraid the answer is rather dull. There’s no magical website that makes them for me: I just draw them! I use Photoshop Elements and a Wacom tablet, but that’s it.
Getting the likenesses right (and I hope I manage to do this, at least some of the time) is mostly a matter of practice. I always spend a lot of time looking at reference pictures of the actors, trying to figure out what their most recognizable features are and how to cartoonify them. Obviously, in the case of Benedict Cumberbatch, a LOT of staring time is necessary, but I’m willing to put the work in for you, viewers. Only for you…
It’s now been heavily hinted that series 3 of Sherlock involves a wedding of some sort, and although I’m trying to avoid specific spoilers, that hasn’t stopped my imagination from running wild and imagining Sherlock being coaxed into a bridesmaid’s outfit. Or indeed, more than one of them…
Shamelessly reblogging my own art, because if the trailer for Thor: The Dark World is anything to go by, Loki needs all the hair-care help he can get…
Anonymous asked: i'm such a fan of your all your fantastic artwork. brava! i think a gif of one of my favorite exchanges in the vaduz episode would be a great addition to your icon collection. here it is: Theresa: Maxi, do we have a medal for Teasing Recognition? Maxi: No.T: Shame. (Flirtatiously to Martin) You really earned it.(Martin laughs nervously.)
Aww, thank you for the compliment. Here’s my attempt at rendering that particular CP conversation in icon form. I hope you approve!
In case anyone hasn’t seen them yet, the rest of my icons for Cabin Pressure series 4 can be found over here.
Anonymous asked: d'you check your asks? stupid question, i know
In answer your not-at-all-stupid question, dear Anon, I do check my asks, yes. However, I have a tendency to answer them privately if they’re signed, and if they’re anonymous, I don’t generally post a reply unless someone’s asked a specific question.
Nonetheless, I do read and appreciate every ask I get. Therefore, lovely readers, please feel free to ask me something if you would like to do so!
A Doctor Who question: what happened immediately after Cold War? Maybe the Russians did give the Doctor and Clara a lift, but most lifts don’t involve going halfway around the planet. So here’s my mental image of the alternative scenario…
Sherlock Disney Princesses! Because… well, do I really need a reason?
It’s recently been announced that a sequel to Finding Nemo will be released in 2015. This news swam around in my funny (or should that be finny?) little brain for all of five minutes before a ridiculous Sherlock crossover was born.
A little something to celebrate the return of Doctor Who to our screens. Happy Easter from Strax the Sontaran!
Poor John Harrison. Not only does somebody love him, but he also looks sad when he thinks no one can see him…
Presented without comment
Why have I never noticed before that Benedict is the reincarnation of Kenneth Williams? Ooh, matron!
The Angel Islington, because my eyes and hands needed something to do while my ears were listening to Neverwhere.
More Sherlock season 3 excitement occurred today when a member of the crew tweeted a picture of an empty bathtub and then deleted it. Many imaginations (including my own) immediately filled with ideas for thrilling Sherlock scenes that could take place in a bathroom, but here’s my spoiler-free prediction of a drama that is much more likely to unfold there…
WHY NOT BOTH.
Reblogging my own post so you can all get the benefit of teabeforewar’s fabulous sequel!
