Puzzles by StarshipSorceress Puzzles by StarshipSorceress
Sherlock: "Learning to see the puzzle in everything? They're everywhere once you start looking, it's impossible to stop. It just so happens, people and all their deceits and illusions that inform everything that they do tends to be the most fascinating puzzles of all. Of course, they don't always appreciate being seen as such."
Watson: "Seems like a lonely way to live."
Sherlock: "As I said, it has its costs."


A little fanart of Jonny Lee Miller from the show "Elementary." For those of you who havent seen the show, it's basically like the American version of Sherlock. The Sherlock in it is still British, but it's set in New York. (And a FEMALE Watson, whhhhattt? XD)

I was a little skeptical of the show at first because of my deep devotion to BBC's Sherlock. Poor Jonny probably had a lot of proving to do as an actor. But I have since realized there was no need to question the quality of the show, because it is quite original in it's own right and I enjoy it very much (and dat season finale, oh god ;A;).

Did some more practicing with the brush I used for my Loki bookmark. I really like the texture it has, it just takes some getting used to as it blends quite differently than my main brush XD

Lovely artwork! I'm a huge Sherlockian and I had the same misgivings as you (it's no BBC version) but it's such a good show in its own right. I really like the relationship Miller and Liu have in the show, and the reason why Sherlock is in NYC to begin with. Methinks if the BBC version didn't exist, this one would be more commonly lauded for being a great, modern adaptation.

Thank you :) It's definitely completely different from BBC's version, which is why it's really hard to compare the two. And I agree with you that Miller and Liu have a great onscreen relationship! I think maybe if Elementary were just a crime show and not a sherlock adaption, it may get more attention and praise like it deserves. It is quite good in its own right and I love the twists on the sherlock stories (:

Nice job! :). I was kind of confused as to why there wasn't really any Johnny Lee Miller versions of Sherlock Holmes on here because its a pretty good show :)

Thanks, I'm sort of surprised there isnt more art for it either. I guess because a lot of people are wary of watching it compared to BBC Sherlock. But I love both shows (: They are both great in their own way!
