John Watson by alicexz John Watson by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE


"You're not haunted by the war, Dr. Watson... you miss it."
Painted over Livestream today. The full video isn't available because I kept lagging out in the beginning, but thank you very much to all who stayed and watched! Companion piece to the recent Sherlock portrait I did - this is Dr. John Watson (looking all haunted and sad) as played by Martin Freeman in BBC's Sherlock series. I love the intensity coupled with the dry humor that Freeman brings to the role!

Drawn in Adobe Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. Reference from here. Painted for 2 hours on Livestream.

This picture of John has long been a favorite of mine. I hope you will consider submitting the whole series (John and Sherlock and Moriarty and Mycroft and Irene ard any others) to thankyoubbcsherlock on Tumblr - On Friday, September 5, 2014, flowers and the blog URL will be sent to the show as a gift of appreciation for all the pleasure "Sherlock" has brought so many of us. Submissions will also, as I understand it, continue to be added to the blog after that. Your wonderful pictures would add so much to the impact of the blog!

I know of two Doctors on TV
and they are both from BBC
I don't know whether to choose John Watson
Or The Doctor.
Why not both?
Because my fandom dwelling friends insist I choose one...

That moment, caught in-between thinking

hey, that book-man was really rude

and thinking

hey, that man sounded like (no, no, no, not again)

and thinking

hey, that man sounded like (...! ...! WHERE DID HE GO?!)

and subconsciously preparing to fall over

I think this is right before his brain fully registers The Return.

I'll comment this series all at once.

Irene Addler's and Watson's portraits are perfect! I think you can pull off a better Moriarty though, show a bit more of his character, I can see Watson's seriousness and Irene's cold and calculative look and I think you can capture Moriarty just as well.

And you also have got better Sherlocks in the gallery. As for Mycroft... well... I just don't like him that much xD

I'll be +fav'ing both Irene and Watson.

Congratz, great job.

This must be the best John picture I have ever seen and I think you don't get half as much praise for it a you should (which is A LOT). His expression is just so ... my words fail me. I'll go with 'spot on'. This mixture of worry/sorrow and iron determination is just so John it's amazing. GREAT WORK!
