Repository for fanart done for the BBC television show Sherlock. Curated by samati.
ICE & FIRE
There he stands by your side, even now, even through this, even when he is no longer yours.
Even through the pain, hurt, betrayal.
Absolution, so sweet. All the sins, all the mistakes, forgiven. You are acquitted. Vindicated. Accepted.
Despite? Yes. In spite of? Definitely.
And yet you wonder why:
He conducts light, while you coax in darkness
He is passion when you are apathy
He is order when you are chaos
He is reparation when you are destruction
He is constant when you are anything but
The man is forged from flame and sand and blood
While you are encased in frost and steel and poison
In his veins thrums the heat; in them courses fire - fueling a beating heart
While in yours cold pulsates; ice freezes them, trapping a heart until its existence is almost deniable
How can it exist, this bond that you have forged?
If he is fire and you ice, how can you possibly co-exist without destroying the other? (But you have once; both devastating the other in one way or another. But that is past, that is forgiven. Here you are.)
Is this it, then? Is this tenuous ground that you tread the equilibrium point? Is this where black meets white, ultimate absence and omnipresence twine together and somehow form gray?
If it is, then maintain this balance - for both your sakes.
This is you. This is him.
This is gray.
I only own the art. BBC, ACD, Moffat and Gatiss own Sherlock. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman own their faces.
/leaves fanart and semi-drabble here and goes to bed/ psst.. that shit’s also on dA

The finished product (or as finished as it’s going to get).
All in all, around 8 hours work, as predicted. There are some things about it I really like, but as usual, some things I really don’t. But hey, it was fun and I’m glad the work in progress posts were enjoyable for some. I’ve put them all together in one post here.
Repainted one pic of 2 years ago.(maybe no one remembers the old one,haha)
John went back to 221B to visit Mrs Hudson. The Landlady asked him to stay for one night. When he tried to cook something for himself he start to remember the life in this room before. It’s just like Sherlock has never left…
(Sherlock is not a ghost in the background orz)
PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE BEGINNING!
Hey all! For August/September, Let’s draw Sherlock’s challenge is Draw Sherlock Holmes in your favorite scene from a film/tv show/anime!
Ends: September 15th!
Your challenge is to choose a scene from any film, television show, or anime and redraw it, either with Sherlock characters in place of the other characters, or Sherlock arriving to interrupt the scene. You can choose anything that qualifies as a film, short film, television show, cartoon, anime film or show, etc. Shows that only play on the web, or other odd situations, will be judged case by case, so please write and ask us if your idea qualifies before beginning. What doesn’t count: games, books, comics, manga, radio shows, etc. If you’re doing, say, a book that has a film version, use the film version, not the book version, for reference.
When you post your entry, please post the name of the film and link to the IMDB, and a little explanation of the scene, for those of us who may have not seen it. Feel free to rewrite the scene dialogue a little to make it more Sherlock-y.
-Entries using the same scene are fine; however if you notice someone has already done the scene you were thinking about doing, and you haven’t started yet, consider choosing something else for the sake of variety.
-You can include any pairing, any rating, any version of Sherlock. If your artwork is explicit it’d be appreciated if you could put it under a preview or read more. We’re very flexible on content.
-You can submit art (drawn/painted/etc), graphics/photo manips, cosplay, photography, or crafts. Photo manips should alter at least 50% of the original image to qualify (meaning you can’t just paste a face onto a screencap of your screen). If your image happens to have fic attached to it, that’s great, but we will not be accepting purely fic submissions this time around.
-We aren’t critical of quality! Whether you choose to push yourself and make something elaborate, or only have an hour or so and just want to participate, we love everything we get! Also, don’t put your work down in your comments!
-Please create new art! We feel it’s missing the point of the challenges to accept old works.
-Limit of submissions: max 2.
-How to submit: post it to your blog. Tag it “letsdrawsherlock” within the first five tags (you must do this when you post; if you edit in the tag later it generally doesn’t appear under the tag listing). You can also send us your post ID via askbox.
A reminder about our buddy group: Let’s Write Sherlock!!! This group is run by a different set of people, so the challenges will not be the same, but they update much more often than we do! Feel free to enter both!
"My Goodness, John, what is that beautiful rotten thing?"
"My Dear Sherlock, that would be a Rafflesia Arnoldi!"
First entry for Let’s Draw Sherlock! I basically grew up in Java, Indonesia, where my family have these ancient photos where my ancestors used to dress with batik cloths and blangkon hats. I always fell in love with vintage cultural clothes, since we rarely wears it daily in modern days. So I decided to used it on both Sherlock and John!
Sherlock - He wears a fit vest and coat, mixture to Western style since Western countries did brought a lot of influence here. Blangkon hat symbolize sincerity and gentleness, in outline resembles a true Javanese. The Batik cloth has many special patterns, for example this kind of cloth in the picture cannot be worn just by anybody. The people who wears such outfit usually comes from a rich / royal family. He also brought a Keris, a medium blade which has more mystic energy believed than any usual steel. It sometimes works as a family symbol too. Overall, this cloth yelling high social status from each and every part of it!
John - This is actually a proper doctor outfit at that time! The style also has a certain posh in it, that’s because the pupils who enrolled into medical school often came from a wealthy family. Doctor’s occupation considered as very rare thus frequently honored like royalty, hence their beautiful image. To symbolize their noble position, doctors have a badge pinned onto their cloths (just like it works for Sheriffs).
Raffelsia Arnoldi - a bonus trivia since the person who found it first was Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, a British statesman, later named by him. It made one fundamental part in which marks the British appearance in the nation history.
So there you have it, my version of vintage Javanese Sherlock Holmes & John Watson in the early 1800!
And because I always wanted to draw them in Batik ʘ‿ʘ
