Yesss Lestrade and Sherlock interactions are good times! They'd be all ornery but still save each others' butts. ;w;

I don't like this pairing. I'm more Of a Johnlock girl, but this is absolutely amazing. I love how you colored it. Fantastic job well done!

Oh thanks! I didn't actually draw it with romantic sherstrade in mind, although I do like that pairing sometimes. I'm glad you like the coloring... it's fun to use a limited palette! *__*

Oh no problem. Though I would life to apologize. My comment may have been a little on the rude side, and I just want you to know that's not at all what I meant it to sound like. I love this picture and you did a fantastic job.

It was a bit abrupt sounding but I knew what you were getting at. It's pretty easy to read a lot of Sherlock art as shippy even if there's nothing overtly romantic going on, and I totally understand the compulsion to say "I'm not into this usually, but I like what you've done"! Thanks again! :3

It's nothing, and I am sorry, but I'm glad you understand. Because I really don't want to be mean to anyone. But I do have quite the tongue, so again, sorry!

There is only 40 odd seconds in The entire 6 episodes of SHERLOCK, including the pilot, of romance, and practically nothing happens. So what is Sherlock BBC about?
Bromance, of course!
BROMANCE ALL THE WAAAY
AWESOME job!

Aw man thanks so much!! I'm so glad it hits your Lestrade feels!

ugh I love the idea of Lestrade and Sherlock dealing with each other before John came along... just them working together and getting shit done even though they sometimes drive each other crazy!

aaah I need to get back to drawing again and draw more of them!

Thanks for looking! ♥

I just love the lighting. And the perspective. And well...everything else too, of course. :'D They look so in-character and I love Lestrade's pose~

Just a question ((Lol, forgive me if I have asked this before...I have such a terrible memory)) Is there any certain paper or pencil that is best for drawing. I mean, I've been drawing for years but I mostly use cheap computer paper and an HB pencil. ^^; I would truly appreciate any suggestions~ :heart:

:iconbbshrimp:
bbshrimp Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
Aw thank youuu! hahah this drawing got all ridiculous with the weird colors and lighting! XD

omg drawing supplies! Be careful, I can babble forever about materials! I don't do it any more, but I used to do charcoal, gouache, watercolor, ink, pastels, etc. I loved pawing at different papers and such. I personally don't think there's one perfect drawing material... it's whatever you like the feel of, gets the job done, and can afford!

Right now I mostly do basic pencil or pen line drawings with no rendering (aside from Photoshop) so I like basic ol' Strathmore Sketch Premium Recycled 11x14in pads that I can find easily in a lot of stores. The paper has a tiny amount of soft, smooth tooth which I find pleasant to scribble on. I love drawing on computer paper too! It's so smooth and versatile. I just use a half-dead .5 mechanical pencil and lately F lead is my favorite! It's a bit harder and less smudgy than HB, but still smooth and comfortable. If my lines keep getting smudgy sometimes I'll go to the H range, but usually I'm too lazy. Plus the H range is so pale.

I guess a super generic guide would be using a toothier paper and softer leads for rendering and smudging, and a smoother paper and harder leads for line work. But... I mean, that gets mixed up however you like!

From your journal, it sounds like you're entrenched in college right now. Are you taking any arty courses? :3

Noooo, I don't mind babbling. It was a very informative babble and I truly appreciate it! Hmmm, I have never thought about using the F lead. I've always had them lying around but have never experimented with them before.

It looks like I have some things to try out. Thanks for the advice!! :D

Oh yes. The all consuming of like : College. I am taking a drawing course but I have to start with the basics before I can get to more advanced courses ;u; I go to the extreme with each piece I do because they're just too easy and I can't honestly help it. :'D

hahah yah with some classes you'll totally have to make your own fun with the tedious assignments! XD I bet once you start getting into the advanced classes you'll get some crazy materials lists and be able to try out all sorts of wacky media!

I don't miss all the ridiculous amounts of homework and projects in college, but I do miss the actual learning... all the new materials and subjects! yummm!
