i have always loved Sherlock Holmes, and this movie was a favorite of mine as a kid. And since there's a new movie out of Mr. Holmes. i was inspired to do this piece.

Gorgeous. I believe the aspect of your artwork I appreciate the most is how well you pictured Holmes' courage. It is said that the sight of the hound, appearing through the white fog, was truely frightening. Yet, he immediately chased down the creature. I believe your fantastic illustration shows that very well. :3

I wonder if Watson or Holmes really do have a cane/sword like that.

If only he caught the dog and turned it into his own personal supernatural bloodhound.

Wow! I really like the macabre atmosphere and the style you drew this in. Everything is so delightfully eerie, especially the hound itself. The detail in the fur and on Holmes' coat also looks fantastic.

Hound of the Baskervilles is my favorite Sherlock Holmes story. Fantastic work. :D

You did a really good job drawing good old Holmes. I like the concentrated look on his face and how his clothes move as he is turning around. :clap:

And the hound looks just as creepy as it is supposed to be. You did a great job with the glow and leaping pose. :thumbsup:

Background is great too. It captures the mood of the story very well. Those clouds are very interesting and I just love how you drew the moon. :)

And you were totally epic to give Holmes a sword too. :w00t:

I fave! :iconplusfav:
