Before you submit to our group's gallery, please read below for the basics of what you need to know before submitting.

What you need to know:

The purpose of this group is to promote the universe of Sherlock Holmes. Meaning the work you sumbit MUST be something to do with Sherlock Holmes!

Even though we accept any Sherlock Holmes art, we do not allow anything that would be classified as inappropriate for anybody under 18 years of age. This includes art that contains profanity (of any kind), nudity, excessive gore, etc. We do not allow slash either. It is not canonical and we therefore will not allow it in the group. For a full list of our laws and guidelines, you can visit this page.

Piece of the Month - June


Sherlock Holmes - Mind Palace by SoniaMatas

Sherlock Holmes by SoniaMatas

Every month, we will select one of our favourite pieces from the Art Gallery and place it here as the piece of the month. Have a suggestion for the piece of the month? Let us know by sending us a note.

After a piece has been featured as the piece of the month, the piece will be moved to the "Featured" gallery.
I started SherlockHolmesFans back in 2010 (seven years ago!) with the goal of it becoming the largest slash-free Sherlock Holmes group on DeviantArt. The group has become fairly large since then, and I have had a wonderful time over the years running it.

As I have gotten older, however, priorities have shifted. Other things take precedence in my life, and as a result, this group has become fairly inactive. This is nobody's fault but my own, and I apologize. I have let submissions expire far too often and there is no excuse for that.

I have decided to give somebody else the position of founder so that this group can be administered in the way it deserves to be. That somebody is NightMagican, our co-founder. NightMagican has given a lot to the group since becoming our co-founder, and is well deserving of the founder role. I want to give my sincerest thanks to NightMagican for taking control of the group, and all of my best wishes in running it.

Thank you all for making this group what it is, and what it always has been. It has been a fun experience.

I don't know if any of you guys watched it, but TNT ran a TV series based on the lost world from 1999-2001, and apparently in the cancelled 4th series they would've had Moriarty and Sherlock appear. I'm now even sadder at the show's cancellation.

I'm writing a modern day set Sherlock Holmes fan fiction, and am stuck for ideas on how I'm going to adapt a scandal in Bohemia (scandal in Australia really doesn't sound good!), so if anyone has any suggestions it would be much appreciated. Stay safe.

Hi, I have screenshots from my Sherlock Holmes games to submit, I'd usually put that under the 'wallpaper' category but would that be OK with this group?
