Sweet dreams... by P-JoArt Sweet dreams... by P-JoArt
... are made of this.

Taken from my compilation of sketches ([link]). Some people suggested me to pick one and make a pic, and this one seemed to be the favourite one, so I did this. I'm not sure if it is ok: I wanted to do an 'animeish' colouring, but it turned out completely different. Oh, well...
I also made a wallpaper, not because I think my pics deserve wallpapers (^^; no, no, absolutely not), just because I liked more the composition. [link]

<font><font>What reason exists to draw them as homosexuals?</font></font>

There is a really simple answer to your question: I like it so I draw it. :P
Actually, you probably know that the two characters share a quite intimate and profound bonding, which has been seen from many fans (since 19th century, some say) as some kind of romantic relationship going on between them. Of course, this is not an official interpretation, but if you read carefully the books, there are several hints that might lead to this. If you are interested, try to read this ship-manifesto.livejournal.com… or any other Sherlock/Waton essay, there are many on the web. Moreover, the recent movies just made this subplot a lot more obvious.

That's not the point. Actually, I don't even really care about what Conan Doyle thinks about it (though I'd be curious to hear his opinion). This is not about the "truth", this is about the fan's imagination. The characters themselves are fictional characters, there is nothing "true" here, it's just "entertainment". And yes, I would have drawn this even if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself had said that he was against this interpretation. ;)

<font><font>I understand and respect your opinion are fictional characters, but specifically what I mean, no offense, without referring to you, is the depravity or fantasy with these two characters, that's what bothers me.</font></font>

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you wrote. However, no offense, but if this bothers you, why are you even looking at it? Maybe subconsciously you like it, at least a little bit, who knows? :P
Forgive me, I was just joking. ;) We probably just have different tastes. :)

I would love to feature this piece in our group :iconforgottentalesgroup: as we have a transcript series in which John and Sherlock are a couple and while this piece is not a specific illustration of our version of the boys I think it fits the theme of our group and the series 'Balsham Road Mysteries'. :) Please accept our invite if you would like your piece featured.

Love the whole composition. Though, as usual, I see my own particular fave pairing. And imagined the dog was kind of a substitute for a teddy(!). But Im just a cat person so what do I know! But it's kind of cute, nonetheless.

This situation is now marked as 'did-happen-for-real' in my brain.
There's no way anyone can ever tell me that Holmes and Watson and Gladstone never lay together in one bed.
THEY DID. Look right there!! *points*

I'm sorry, but the first thing that caught my attention... was that Sherlock Holmes... was spooning with Gladstone.

^^"
That was slightly unnerving, but putting that aside (WAY to the side), the picture is awe-inspiring. Not only is it cute and utterly adorable, but the colors and warmth that is created by your technique is really amazing!

I was never any good with feet, and so I'm debating on either being jealous of you, or simply giving your all-loving-kudos.

I love how both of their mouths are slightly open... more than likely they're snoring..

*sigh* Men...

First of all, thank you for all the faves and the watch! :hug:
Second: Holmes/Gladston rulez! X°D Just joking, they are not spooning, they are just sleeping, and you know, sometimes dogs are very good in snuggling while you are asleep (and cats too). :D I'm so glad you like my work, thank you for sharing your thoughts and for the kind comment! (feet are not that difficult for me, but I have serious trouble with shoes :fear: - beware the shoe! :worship: )
Probably snoring, yeah, and Holmes is drooling too. :D

Is that a puddle of drool! XD I hadn't noticed. I thought that that was simply some shadowing of his face onto the bed. That is hilarious. XD
On VERY rare occasions, I have found myself reading into some bestial pairing, but it just seems too awkward for me. Then again, everyone has their own opinion. :)

I know, I know.. you were only kidding about the Holmes/Gladstone thing, but still.

As soon as you started on the comment of dogs snuggling, I was going to retort with, "I don't like dogs" and yet my thoughts stopped mid-sentence as I continued reading and found what I was looking for "(and cats too)". :D

How can you have trouble with shoes, but not feet. Lol, I have trouble with both. XD That is why I generally only draw the upper portion of the figure, or at most down to their knees.

P-JoArt Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2010
I never read any bestial pairing stuff. Like Akamaru/Kiba, for example? XDD Sounds a little weird, but there are worse things. XD

I know, I'm not much into dogs either, but some are nice. Gladstone, for example! :D

Uhm... shoes are difficult... D: I think it is hard to draw their shape in perspective, they always look strange, and also I never remember the shape of the different models... T^T Feet have only one shape, usually! It's easier! :D

Anyway challenge yourself in doing what you can't do, it's the only way to get better. ^^
