The Violin by Nero749 The Violin by Nero749
I finished it a few days ago, but forgot to upload it... And then I was busy watching The Reichenbach Fall (excellent ep btw, but did anyone else wonder why Sherlock was wearing his coat and scarf at the very end? I mean weren't they supposed to be all bloody and torn after the fall? Also, if you've just faked your own death wouldn't you wear something else than the outfit you've been wearing in photos in newspapers for months?)

Then I remembered people might actually be waiting for this drawing, so I thought I should upload it right away...

BTW, if anyone knows how to photograph drawings without making them look really grainy and too dark, I'd love to hear about it... :O

I'm sorry, but I don't consider it spoilers after the episode has aired in the UK... Otherwise I could never discuss any show on any platform anyone in the world can read, because there are always places and people who haven't seen the show yet, or missed it, or... pff.

Aww, thanks! :) It is a bit overflowing with Sherlock stuff isn't it :)

I understand, but a simple warning (*SPOILER*) would suffice.
I got spoiled more than once and it makes me so mad :( It just
takes away something about the experience. (Oh god, I'm going all
captain obvious now.)

The overflowing is good, though. Nothing quite like getting into
a new fandom and discovering all those great treasures of art... :love:

Yes! also there was a rubbish truck that drove away as john arrived, and the fact that he said "this phone call, it's my note." - as in he was playing dumb on purpose so Moriarty would explain exactly how he arranged everything, and catch it on a phone recording.. or the fact that he asked molly for help in the scene before his 'death'. probably so she'd pronounce him dead in the morgue. And the most suspicious thing, that he made John stand on the opposite street, so he wouldn't see him hit the ground/or actually fall into the rubbish truck.

Sometimes I wish you could edit your own comments... I meant 'fact' before. Also I thought about that too, wierd that he would have his usual clothes on. not very discrete... The ep was brilliant though. I really hope they won't make us wait an other 17 months...

Amazing I love the depth and lighting in this picture kinda goes with a mysterious look which lets be honest is kinda how sherlock is. When Sherlock appeared at the end of the episode I wondered why he didn't have a scar or something on his head but we won't find out how he faked his death for another Year >:/ Once again awesome pic :D

No Problem. Yeah seriously for a Criminal Mastermind it's kinda bad to leave your phone on during a life threatening situation. I'm now just curious on how sherlock faked his death. In the mean time I found out something that was quite awesome in my opinion is that an American writer wrote a small book series of Sherlock Holmes Sister how brilliant is that?

Couldn't hold back from favouriting this, even though I was doing it during a 'smoke break' at work. <-- (I don't smoke, but I bloody well needed a break!) However, I didn't have time to comment on it, Nero-chan. How could you forget to upload this? Are you trying to do me in? Do you suddenly have it in for me or...

Okay. Cooling it down before hysterics set in. :D Also... blame yourself for this... you gave me something to think about. So. If that's blood then, yeah, it wouldn't come out of the scarf. If it's fake blood, that's soapy, and doesn't have the same properties as real blood. We didn't see the whole coat, just the lifted collar. Lifting the collar is his habit. It could be a new coat. The scarf -- lots of people wear scarves. I think he could get away with it. Moreover, I think some part of him was hoping that John would see and recognize him. I think he misses John so much he's giving him chances to find the truth, highlighted by the fact he went there at all. Of course, he knows John well enough to be very confident John wouldn't see him at that distance. GLAH -- SHUT UP, BUNNI!!!

What's more, The Hounds proved Sherlock can drive. Why not get a car -- hardly difficult for him -- get in in the garage, head across town, and only exit in a lonely graveyard? Minimizes the exposure, right?

You are amazing! :dance: This one is so dark! Much darker than I recall! Can you explain the logic of why?

Haha, smoke breaks without smoking, that sounds familiar ;) I used to work at this warehouse and I always got dragged outside for the smoke breaks, two years later they were still asking me if I wanted a cigarette LOL

Yes... but it would still be a coat that has a same collar... bit of a coincidence, and why RISK it? Master of disguise couldn't be bothered to DISGUISE himself LOL Anyway, I'm sure (I hope) we'll find out next series what the hell happened LOL
