Sleep well by lily-fox Sleep well by lily-fox
I was in the mood to draw something Sherlock & Johnny and asked my sister for an idea. She said she wanted to see John tuckered out on the sofa and Sherlock covering him with a blanket, maybe. Anything Kitter wants. C:

He was reading, until he fell asleep, my all-time favorite novel: Haven Kimmel's The Solace of Leaving Early. Poignant, maybe? Post-Reichenbach? Still haven't watched season two yet. I need a guaranteed happy ending before I'll stick my hand in that hornet's nest.



props: Sherlock & Watson Sir Arthur Conan Doyle materials: ink, paper + PS8 (wallpaper brush from Brusheezy.com)
music: The Streets, "Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way"

You're sincerely going to kill me.

It's those fluid lines more than anything-- the single curve from the crown of Sherlock's head to his hand. Makes it look so protective. Ughh. ;;

Oh god what a coincidence. O_O I've made one very similar deviation and I swear I hadn't seen something like that until now. Scary. xD
But damn this is ten times better than my piece. <3

This is so sweet... I don't know 100% why, but they really remind me of Dr. House and Wilson (do you watch House?). I love their expressions. John looks a little troubled and Sherlock looks so caring... Squee. ^w^

lily-fox Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
I've actually never seen House, but I've heard them referred to as incarnations of Holmes and Watson, so that's very appropriate!

Very much so. House is extremely Sherlockish and I can see Wilson being the Watson in their scenario.

I've probably been more of a silent admirer of your art, but now I have to say something. If I though I loved you or your work before, then I dunno what the hell I feel now. Sherlock is one of my all-time favorite shows, and this and the other Sherlock pieces you've done have made me incredibly happy. :aww:
Also, you're one of my favorite artists and one of my greatest artistic inspirations (alongside Alphonse Mucha). Just thought I'd let you know. ^^;

:iconlily-fox:
lily-fox Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012
Okay, the fact that you put my name in the same sentence as Mucha knocks me the fuck OUT. :D Thank you so, so much. I'm so glad you like the stuff I do and you feel inspired -- that is my favorite thing to hear. You're awesome!

Okay, so I was looking for some fluffy JohnLock fanart, when I found this, and then it hit me that you're the artist who successfully "marketed" Pet Project to the HP masses...

OMG YOU HAVE WICKED-AWESOME TASTE IN FANDOM/PAIRINGS!

-ahem-

Aw. Jawn is especially hobbit-y cute in repose, and much love for tender Sherlock too ^_^

The show is pretty amazing, I have to say. Unlike anything I've ever seen before. It's on Netflix instant, if you've got it.

SOOO BEAUTIFUL xD A word to the wise. DON'T WATCH SEASON TWO if you are expecting a happy ending. Wait until 2013. Probably a good idea x_x; Wait till season 3 xD Either way, thankyou soo soo much for producing such GORGEOUS JohnLock art ;_;

This is incredibly adorable. I can't even.
I probably find it even MORE adorable [if possible] than I normally would because that's sort of the stage my John and I have been in for a while, the whole tender-but-awkward-and-therefore-infrequent jive.
That doesn't make any sense.
The point is that I adore this.

That's kind of a sweet relationship-stage to be in. Still so much to learn! What's that line from that great Isley Brothers tune... "Sad to see a new horizon slowly coming into view..." The adventure of discovery. C:
