Sherlock Holmes full illustration

Here's the full illustration of the Sherlock Holmes piece. The Baker Street Study was based upon a mix of the one at the Sherlock Holmes Museum, the one on display at the Sherlock Holmes Pub and Sidney Paget's artwork. Holmes's dressing gown was taken directly from the Holmes/Moriarty illustration from The Final Problem.

Sherlock Holmes illustration

Here's a section of a new Sherlock Holmes illustration I completed today. I used Windsor Newton ink. I still have a little left, so I thought I'd use it up on some illustration work.

The inspirations were an illustration Frederic Dorr Steel did of William Gillette as Sherlock Holmes, the Baker Street Study which is on display at the Sherlock Holmes Pub in London and the dressing gown Sidney Paget drew Holmes in.

Sherlock Holmes graphic novel

I just wrapped up penciling and inking page 27 today. It's coming along great!! I've had a bit of time of time off in the past couple of weeks, so I've been able to devote some time to getting some pages in the can.

Sherlock Holmes's attire in the first act I based on the costume that William Gillette wore in his stage play.

The second half of the book I plan on using the costume Peter Cushing and Jeremy Brett used for the Sherlock Holmes productions they were involved in. Which more closely resembled the look of the original Sidney Paget artwork.

If all goes well, I should hopefully have everything wrapped up by the end of this year.
