My latest art for “The Blog of Eugenia H Watson” by Madlori. Tried out something more ambitious with watercolor on this one :)

Full drawing below the cut. PG, no spoilers, no warnings

Playing chess with Sherlock :)
11x14 inches, ink and watercolor

You can see a larger version of this image on deviantart or tumblr. Here are my other Eugenia drawings on Lj: first and second. The main reason I chose watercolor for this piece (rather than my usual colored pencil) is that I wanted some practice painting part of the 221 B flat. I am currently working on a short comic about John and Sherlock which takes place entirely inside the apartment. The artful piles of clutter are both a joy and a pain to paint :P

Beautiful! I love watercolour. Did you use watercolour pencils or the "normal" colours or a combination of both for this? And how did you get the spaces for the letters to stay white?

I feel your pain. But the details are what makes it so interesting. I especially love the cast-iron railing outside the window.

Ah, so that's where the wallpaper comes in. *g* I am looking forward to it!

I kept the letters white by very *carefully* navigating around those areas as I painted.
Wow, when I try to do that the end result usually looks really obvious.

Looking at it again I can only admire the great work you did with all the light and shadows - this a weak point of mine which I'm still trying to develop.

Good luck with working on the next chapters - this level of detail must take so long. I usually get too impatient and eventually stop working on stuff and just post it (although I am secretly a perfectionist at heart).

This is amazing! My favourite thing is Sherlock's purple bathrobe. :D

This is very lovely! Great colouring and I love all the little details in the drawing (like the books *under* the chair. *g*) Very nice!
