Sherlock BBC: Happy Christmas by dauntingfire Sherlock BBC: Happy Christmas by dauntingfire
I have SO much art I owe people right now but I am running behind on my holiday cards so I prioritized. D:

(I have a Supernatural card I am doing also that is looking GREAT and has Sam, Dean AND Cas on it. Should be done soon!)

Anyways, here are John and Sherlock having a nice Christmas Eve together.


"You're not even going to help me decorate the tree are you?"

"Hush, John, and I'll play that song I caught you singing the other day."

"What song?....Oh God, you mean Alejandro? You can play that?"

"Yes, of course."

"*grins* Yeah, yeah, alright."


AWESOME string quartet version of Alejandro --> [link]

Anyways, hope you all like it! :)


I totally was half awake when I posted this last night so I want to add that the 'Sherlock playing Alejandro' thing is TOTALLY Sam_Storyteller's fault. He wrote an amazing Gen (though rather bromancy) Fic called 'It's not the Violin' ( you can go read it here: [link] ) where Sherlock plays it and now it's just a part of my head-canon.

MY APOLOGIES! I should have mentioned it before!

Also (C) to M & G and ACD, etc

Warning: I'm a rambler ;)

Uuuuuuuuuuuh I cannot express to you in words how much I love this. I mean, seriously, not only is it flipping amazing and beautiful and almost as wonderful as organic Spinach&Chive tea with a cheese scone- NO! Now I'm getting hungry! - but SHERLOCK'S LEFT ARM POSTURE IS FREAKING PERFECT!!! Ugh It does not do me good to see a bad posture in a violinist, and seeing it in art just ruins it for me, you know? It's like...such-and-such individual's art could be so much better if only they didn't draw the wrist like that or HOW COULD SO-AND-SO EVEN IMAGINE THE VIOLIN STICKING OUT OF ONE'S NECK IN SUCH A MANNER?! Ah, but seeing...seeing that good ol' left arm makes me so, so happy. :') Happy enough to ramble more than the 10th Doctor on a sugar rush! (Oh god....)

In short:
I love this, and I want to hug you for it. ^_^

This is going to sound weird - and I love the piece as a whole - but FANTASTIC job on the clothing. I have the hardest time getting the fabric to look like... well, fabric, so good job on that!! Your details are incredible!

love this sweet moment of revery between our boys.
NaughtyKnitter Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
Wonderful! Just gotta say, I love Sherlock's left arm in this. Not so much the right one, but that's just cause I'm a violinist and that's no way to hold a bow is you want to make any sort of presentable sound :P

Sherlock is not tuned into pop culture, as we saw with the Connie Prince murder case, but I like the idea of him doing classical covers of songs everyone would be listening to in our era. The only thing missing here? Me, aka Sherlock's female self, with my flute to provide harmonic back up!
dauntingfire Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
If you read the story I linked in the description makes sense. He heard it in a shop and decided to play it, he doesn't know who the singer is at all until John recognizes it and tells him. :)

But thank you! :)
AnaxErik4ever Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012  Student Writer
:nod: I can play tunes from memory too, pop, Broadway, or otherwise, and I can usually sing a song after listening to it for a minimum of 5 times to commit it to memory. :D and :fork: Hey! Sherlock, don't go bashing my instrument just because Mycroft can't play it and you associate me with him sometimes as I am an older sibling.
AkatsukiGirlRocks Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012
You are an amazing artist! I bow before you ;) The expressions are just so... brilliant. spot on. mesmerizing.

I love this! I used it for part of my GCSE artist study, so I had to do my own interpretation, I hope you don't mind. Would it be ok if I posted it on here?, as long as I give you credit, and I'll drop you a link if you like x

I just want to say that I rarely see anyone put effort into drawing Violin's or people holding violins, with any semblance of accuracy but you did. It looks beautiful, the whole picture is beautiful!
