Yuletart 2012 art by theopteryx
Here’s the first piece I did for yuletart this year, for Neev! I love Elementary but haven’t drawn them before and ended up scrapping a whole bunch of ideas and half-starts before going with this one. So fun to draw! :D
Sherlock’s mind palace
Apart from it being a masterpiece of montage, this scene is so emotionally disturbing. Yes, he’s stunning, absolutely beautiful, showed in the middle of the rawness of the process of deducing. His uniqueness, being special, above everything ordinary, above average human potential shows here. You can’t look away - it’s hypnotising, but at the same time you want to because it’s so distressing to see him like possessed by this genius, by his brain, by this monster inside him. Living beast, feeding on all these tiniest associations, subtle hints, directions, words, slogans, images, tiniest bits of the whole wide universe ever surrounding him until these scraps form final solution. But before it comes to this the whole “ritual” looks almost painfully ecstatic, like he’s on high, beside himself, barely managing, being on the edge, and at the same time nothing could tear him away he’s exactly where he wants to be, belonging, complete, ABSOLUTE. It’s like one step too far and he snaps – done, swallowed by madness, turned into machine on the loop until he burns and turns into ashes along with his brain. You can feel that burden of his MIND, how his brain is a separate living being, forcing him to feed it all the time, taking control, driving away everything else but the purest intellect. Devouring him as a person, as a human entity, while fed. This scene shows so intensely the genius, Sherlock’s greatest asset that is his greatest tragedy. This scene shows how this blessing of his is also his curse threatening his humanity, stability, emotional well-being. It shows how he stands on the edge of abyss all the time and one step too far and he’s falling.
Can I just say, I am immensly proud of how this has turned out
Quite definetly one of the most complex pieces I’ve done for a long while
I hope you guys enjoy the finished piece as much as you liked the WIPs
I’m sorry but I am in love with this art and probably will be for the rest of my life.
I made a thing…
This is perfect in so many ways.
Who are the Fandoms?
They’re online royalty.
If the internet was US Weekly they would always be on the cover.
That one there? That’s Supernatural. They’re one of the weirdest fandoms you will ever meet. Damian followed a Supernatural Blog last year…
They asked me how to spell “Wincest.”
And that little one? That’s Sherlock. They’re totally crazy because their show runner invented psychological torture. The Sherlockians know everybody’s business. They deduce everything about everyone.
That’s why their fanon’s so big. It’s full of deductions.
And fanaticism takes a virtual form in Doctor Who. Don’t be fooled, because they may seem like your typical ship-crazy, feels-having, Sci-fi fandom. But, in reality, they are so much more than that.
They’re the time lords. The stars. The other two are just their little workers.
How do I even begin to explain Doctor Who?
One time Doctor Who punched me in the feels. It was awesome.

Seriously like, what. What. WHAT?
SEBASTIAN MORAN YOU ARE DRUNK!
my favorite part about the sherlock fandom is that we make a lot of posts about a character that has never even been on the show/SOON/
