Sherlock: Let Me Out by dauntingfire Sherlock: Let Me Out by dauntingfire
etothepii over at livejournal wrote a great Good Omens/Sherlock crossover fic called "I Used to Live Alone Before I Knew You"

Sherlock is Crowley-esque! :) It's fantastic. It's also John/Sherlock, just fyi. Go read!

I seriously looked at this and said to myself: "You know, this could be a Good Omens/Sherlock crossover". AND THEN I SAW THAT IT WAS. You legitimately just made my night. :squee:

I love this far too much. Is it worrying that every time I come across a piece of your work I then go back through your gallery? :P Either way great work! I was particularly impressed with how you threw so much texture into the hair and wing with just 3 colours!

SH & GO?! I'm going to go faint now. *swoons*

Very cool. Also reminds me of a fi9c called "A City on the Head of a Pin" by Mad Maudlin. Read it???
Blue-Jester Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011
Considering I love the show Sherlock, and I love the book Good Omens, and I find the crossover to be kind of amazing, I'm obligated to favorite this. I love the look of irritated disdain!

Oh my gawd, what is this fantastic crackiness? It's even worse than the Potter crossover, I must look into this immediately!

Also, very nice pic, love the eyes. And the expression. It makes me want to giggle hysterically for some reason.

Oh my... Sherlock AND Good Omens?! :D Fantastic!
Your Crowley!Sherlock looks perfect! Scarily close to how I imagined Crowley to look like as well, nice job!
sarahbeth89 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011
Saw this, thought "hey cool." Read the fic. Came back and... "OH MY GOD THIS IS AWESOME!!!!"

Sherlock as Crowley? Yes please.
CyanRain Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011
Good Omens and Sherlock? AWESOME! I love how you drew him. :meow:

*drools* OMFG...GOOD OMENS AND SHERLOCK! Beautiful art....
*insane fangirl cackle* Two of my VERY FAVORITE things...TOGETHER...CRAP.
My life is complete. No seriously. I am satisfied.
I may have fallen on the floor from this, but don't judge me for that. I'm just an insane Good Omens/Sherlock fangirl who thinks she died and went to heaven from seeing this. Don't mind me.

I love etothepii's story so much that I was actually planning on also doing some fanart for it! Of course mine would be a silly doodle, but the thought was there X)
Still, your pic is amazing. I love it. Etothepii doesn't get enough fanlove for all his amazing stories =P

Wow. It's my two current favorite things. I applaud you.

I want to fav this and the story 100 times ^^
SisterOfWar Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is awesome! I was just discussing GO with a few friends, playing the game of "who would star in the movie version," and I argued vociferously for Benedict Cumberbatch for Crowley. So, on top of being *absolutely gorgeous* (love the eyes and words being the only touches of colour), it's timely too!
SirLemoncurd Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2010
Haha, I pretty much bought Good Omens to read for my travel home just to be able to read that crossover ; )
(plus, eeeeeeveryone's been nagging at me to read either gaiman or pratchett. was about time)

I've only got a bit of the book left, so soooooon I'll be able to appreciate this drawing ; )
Thymewaste Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2010
Thank you so much for this picture and for the link to this wonderful crossover of two of my favorite fandoms. :heart: It made an already great Christmas Eve Eve ten times better.

This is great!!! I like how the only colour are the eyes and the writing which contrast greatly with the rest of the picture. Great work dear!!!
*scurries away to read the fic*
~~~Some time Later~~~
I read the fic. Thank you for sharing the link to it!!! :D:heart:
Gumby95 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2010
omg that fic is THE BEST. thx for putting me onto it. your art portrays it perfectly! I can just imagine Sherlock growling at Moriarty to let him out of the circle
XxXnoodleXxX Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2010  Student Writer
Oh ho ho! Love the expression here :D

Hm, never read Good Omens. Seems to be spreading a great deal. Is is very... teeny? I don't think I could read Teeny...
Caedesdeo Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2010
Good Omens is utterly not 'teeny'. It's a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, both known for their off-beat and sometimes wicked senses of humour. Featuring a cast including Aziraphale (an angel) and Crowley (an angel who did not so much fall, as saunter vaguely downwards), it's in many ways a fairly domestic British Apocalypse.

It's one of the only books I've ended up with two copies of, the first fell apart from so many readings. :D
XxXnoodleXxX Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2010  Student Writer
Oh, well in that case, I'd better get on it! I suppose I just assumed it was "Teeny" because most popular novels that circulate nowadays are like that... I didn't mean to be a bit snotty :D
Caedesdeo Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010
I...may have been a little vehement in my reply. :P
They are both authors who I would heartily recommend, but especially Pratchett's Discworld series and Gaiman's American Gods/Anansi Boys.

(It was actually published in 1990, which even surprised me a little when I checked- it really doesn't read as a twenty year old novel at all, apart from a few mentions of cassette tapes.)
XxXnoodleXxX Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010  Student Writer
No, it's alright. You have every right to be so assertive in your reply. I can relate, I would have done the same :) You make it sound very interesting, and I really would love to have a go at the series.
Caedesdeo Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2011
Heh, ok then. :D
With the Discworld books, the first two (The Colour of Magic/The Light Fantastic) are very much Pratchett's early works, and it does show in the writing. I'd personally recommend starting with the City Watch subset of books, which begins with 'Guards! Guards!', mostly because they're my personal favourite but also because they are a good starting point. :P
If you want a good starter for Gaiman's books, there's an anthology called Smoke and Mirrors, or American Gods and Anansi Boys. He's also written a book technically aimed at younger readers but just as good for us old ones called The Graveyard Book.
