Basil of Baker Street by Henrieke Basil of Baker Street by Henrieke
Anyone could've expected this, since I FINALLY got to see The Great Mouse Detective yesterday!
Ofcourse I already knew Basil from the many comics that were published in the Netherlands the past twenty years, but Basil's personality is kind of missing in there. Not very strange, I have no idea how you could put his manners into a comic.
I made this sketch while watching the movie, it turned out okay. His face isn't perfect, but I like it for a first (especially if you compare it to the other times when I first tried to draw a character). Maybe his eyes should be a little bit closer together... or maybe not. Since one little sketch is not enough, I guess there'll be more soon!

Oh, and character Đ Disney...

Lovely line art! You've really captured his likeness here. All that's missing is his deerstalker hat.
The Great Mouse Detective sure brings back memories. It was one of my favorite movies growing up. ^_^

Nah, his face is fine - I think he's a little taller. But I think the colors are right, and the clothing too. ^-^ 5/5! Definitely a save!

I love the great mouse detective! And of course I love Basil =D he's one of my personal favorites =3
The picture itself is great and looks perfect, so much better than most of the movie posters and movie covers, most of them made him look like he had an overly happy personality they also made olivia look fat,at least thats how it looks to me, haha

"His face isn't perfect" ???
HE IS EXACTLY AS IN THE MOVIE !!!
This is hard to say if it was made in the studios of the movie or is a Fanart sketch...
I've got to tell you that it IS perfect !
Keep up the good work !
