Dash it all Basil... by Porcelain-Requiem Dash it all Basil... by Porcelain-Requiem
Another doodle... still getting used to Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0, and my new tablet. (It's a bit smaller than my old one, so I might just use the other one to draw big images.)

Anyhoo... it's a humanized Basil from "The Great Mouse Detective." (He was my younger sister's favorite Disney boy as a kid. ;))

ENJOY!

Full Views!

(P.S., The title is a joke reference to a quote Dawson says near the end of the film. Basil gets bummed and Dawson says the line. (One of my favorite lines in the movie. :XD:))

Character - Disney
Art - *Porcelain-Requiem

Back at the year of 2008 or whatever date after you placed this picture here, I should've mention to you that you did pretty well, making a humanized Basil of Baker street.
I love the film, and some of the characters.

And most of all, R.I.P., Barrie Ingham, the voice of Basil of Baker st, (February 10, 1932-January 23, 2015).

This is a very lovely piece. I like how it has a lot of Sherlock Holmes in the design, the hawk nose, the expression, but also has a lot of Disney's adjustments to it as well.

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! In my headcanon Basil's last name is Brett. (After Jeremy Brett... who played him in the Granada television series and is thought to be the best Holmes.) Of course Basil (the mouse) is much warmer than JB...
