"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...
