Sherlock Holmes Week 2012

(all through the week, there will be Share the Sherlock Love. For more information, see here: love-sherlock-holmes.deviantar…

STARTING NOW: A chain-story. Since we are technically a BBC Sherlock fan group (or ended up that way) I'm going to ask that we keep it BBC. That means Sherlock and John, not Holmes and Watson. Also, for the sake of everyone, keep it relatively slash free. So no sex or anything. They can hug, but anything over that line is a bit much. Here's how this works:…
It's been STARTED! To All those involved: THERE IS A NEW FOLDER FOR THE CHAIN STORY. PLEASE SUBMIT THEM IN ORDER. If the person before you has not submitted yet, do not put yours in!!!!!!!Please!

:bulletblack:30 July—This will be Sherlock Holmes quiz day. The journal on that day will feature links to different Holmesian quizzes-whether it’s Sherlock, RDJ, or the original Canon, you can test your knowledge of Sherlock Holmes. Also, anyone willing to make a quiz—drop me a comment or a note, and I’ll include yours on the list. Make then as challenging and as fun as you want!

:bulletblue:31 July-- Fashion ‘Contest’ there will be a folder open up until then for any submissions. If anyone wants to donate prizes, feel free. These can be: Canon Holmes, your own Holmes, BBC Sherlock, Your own modern Sherlock Holmes. (In other words, you can think up clothing designs for any of the already-existing Holmes, or design clothes for how you see Sherlock Holmes).

:bulletblack:1 August—

:bulletblue:2 August--An internet trail. It will start with a clue here and lead through some of the best Sherlock and Sherlock Holmes sites/fan things on the web. (Subject to change, I will need help with it, so if you want to volunteer). Will only be up for this day.

:bulletblack:3 August—

:bulletblue:4 August--ends the chain-story. The full story will be posted here and featured in the group journal.

:bulletblack:5 August—This is to get in any submissions of how you see any future Sherlock Holmes. Whether it’s one year from now, or another 100 years, how do you see Sherlock Holmes in the future? The folder will be open until then for your submissions.

Still missing a few activities, so PLEASE if you have any ideas, let e know ASAP so we can get started!!!!!

Also, our contest voting is going on through 16 July, so please vote if you have not yet! Here's the link to the entries:…

Please note- This has finished for 2012, although I'm hoping we can do it all again in 2013- making it bigger, more successful, and better organised than before!!
Needed to get your attention :D Well, this is pretty urgent:

As you may know, Sherlock Holmes week is coming from 30th July to 5th August.
We need to show how much we LOVE SHERLOCK HOLMES.

Share the Sherlock love

- People can ask another Deviant to Draw a Sherlock Holmes related picture for free.
- They can also comment on this journal to ask another random willing Deviant to do the drawing. You can do fan fiction as well!!!
- Your talents don't matter!! Even if you are not the best at drawing, we want you to take part!!
- Any requests allowed, as long as they are to do with Sherlock holmes, and do not need a warning.
- There is a stamp for people who are willing to take requests!
Share the Sherlock Love by Tigzzz
- Send the information to as many people as possible, try to get EVERYONE involved.
- Finished pictures should be uploaded during Sherlock Holmes week.- There is a folder at :iconlove-sherlock-holmes: called Share the Sherlock Love for you to submit them to!!
- On the last day, a HUGE collage will be posted with everyone's artwork in.

Make sure to spread the word.

EDIT- You are welcome to put this in your Journals etc, so make sure to spread the word!!

Also, you can submit works that you have done before, but it should be ones that you have done as a free request, so that it goes with the idea of sharing the Sherlock Love :D.

I'm so happy. I never dreamed of reaching such a number. I've been a member of Deviantart for nearly four years now but only recently was I able to fully invest my time in my art. I graduated in June and received my Associates in Baking and Pastry Arts (finally). I work part time at an optometrist's office but my real passion is to draw. I've been working very hard to develop my style and improve my technique over time. I'm just so touched by this, you know? >< 
One of my greatest joys here on DA is holding contests, I love to hear back from people. So many here are just so kind~ I really enjoy reading about your preferences, experiences, your sweet words~ And thus to express my appreciation I have decided to hold this raffle

[Edit 6/26] WINNER
:iconmayuralover: please send me a note with your request :)

thanks to everyone that participated in the raffle c:

[Edit] I'm going to pick a winner on Thursday so you've only got a couple days to enter the raffle if you haven't already!

lololol so thanks to minikitty1516 for pointing out that nobody caught my kiriban xD actually last night I checked and was still a few hundred away so ... idk

I feel sorta bad for just letting this awkwardly disappear without any winner so I'll just hold a raffle. I really didn't want to hold a raffle this early but yeah
Favorite this journal and I'll use to pick a winner you must be a watcher and if you're the winner then go ahead and request a free drawing, same rules as below apply

I'll probably pick a winner near the end of the week. It gives more people a chance to enter and gives me a chance to finish some personal projects xD

oh my gosh guys in the past few weeks I've gotten such a rapid increase of exposure like I can hardly keep up with all the messages. So I figured why not host another kiriban?

What's a Kiriban?
For those who don't know, a Kiriban is when I choose a certain number of pageviews, in this case 11,111, and whoever is my 11,111st page viewer omg what is grammar takes a screenshot to show me proof that they were the person who caught the Kiriban. If you're the one that catches the kiriban then I will make a free drawing for you at your request ^v^

Why Another Kiriban?
Actually I had a 4,444 kiriban in April and I thought it was fun and back then I thought "hmmm maybe I'll hold another kiriban for 11,111. That'll probably take around 6 months" haha nope, it's been like 2. But it's summer so I have time, and breaching the 5 digit benchmark feels pretty amazing. Also, I have a thing for repeating digits xD
Last time I announced it when I was about 300 views away but then it got caught in like 2 days, so now I'm announcing it a bit early. Right now I'm a little less than 2,000 page views away so more opportunities for everyone right?


-I need screenshot proof that you caught the Kiriban. If you have difficulties getting the screenshot then you can use it's really easy and pretty much gives your screenshot its own web address that you can link me.

-You can request one human character, colored full-body or half-body, whatever your preference

-OR you can request a colored half-body or full-body animal.
last time I broke my own rules and drew a cat for the person who caught my kiriban. This time I'll allow you to request an animal instead of the human character if you so choose BUT it has to be a real animal that actually exists warning: I don't often draw animals so be careful if you choose this route

-OR you can request a full, colored landscape.
once again warning: I've only done one landscape study so far, so no quality guarantees. But I got good feedback on the landscape so I'll put it up as an option

-It can't be 18+, erotic, or anthro (just not my thing)

But really guys, I'm truly thankful to have the pleasure to know you all
Hosting this kiriban is my own little way of repaying the kindness I've been so lucky to receive from each of you.
Thank you to the watchers that have stuck by me over the months/years and thank you to all the new watchers that have suddenly flooded my inbox, prepare yourselves for the madness that is my life xD
I'm always working to improve and it's reassuring to know that there are people that want to watch my growth along with me. I don't want to let you guys down :)
