Holmes and Watson

Ah, the amiable Mr Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson, two of my favourite characters. Here I present an old sketch I did probably about a year ago but rediscovered while trawling through some old drawings and thought I’d give it the old colour treatment. I like the contrast in skin tones, what with Holmes being very pale skinned and vampiric (is that a word?). I was tempted to put puncture wounds on Holmes’ wrist to indicate his love of Heroin but decided against it. Perhaps Watson’s hair should be rather more grey but lets assume this is them in their younger years. Original lineart.
Coloured version.
