BBC-SH: Still Brass Burn by Cardboardram BBC-SH: Still Brass Burn by Cardboardram
NOTICE: I HAVE A TUMBLR ACCOUNT. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY OF MY STUFF AND RE-POST IT ON TUMBLR.

[DETAIL SHOTS]
[link] [link] [link]

[THIS DESCRIPTION IS PRETTY MUCH COPY-PASTA FROM TUMBLR]
Inspired by writingispurdy's "A Study in Blue" in which A Study in Pink is reinterpreted to the Jazz age (or the roaring 20s). Excellent read, though FYI eventual SH/JW. :0 Also, if you do read this. I strongly suggest you listen to this when you get to the part at Angelo's.

But yehhh, I had actually hoped to illustrate the meeting scene originally but turns out I read that part wrong and so this is an illustration of my impression while reading the scene. ffff. *reading fail*

Also have another bonus Animated process Gif (though I have to tell you that the process to finish this is a lot more complicated then this Gif might have you to believe...)

Awwww Verity, thanks. :hug::heart:
Glad to have got the period feel, I mean, suits have been around for a while
so they may all end up looking the same. I did try to research as much jazz age
things for this one. O3O

Your research really pays off - that's one of the things I love about you, the amount of time and effort you put into each piece... the 'behind the scenes' stuff you do to make it 'feel' right. You rock!

I'm in the middle of another bigger piece,
dunno if you read Madlori's Performance in a Leading Role?
I'm still in the prep stage, but gosh, yeah it's a lot of work. xD
Ahhh the things I do for art...gosh I just realized what a tangent that
was, sorry, but thank you again. I only wish I was able to produce
faster then never. *sigh*

I can imagine that this too so long to do. It has this nice mix of being almost photographic and still cartoonish from the face. The shading is lovely and has a nice warm, honey glow. That chair is amazing in the amount of detail placed into it. It makes me want to draw a chair scene now. Great use of contrast. Those dark blacks really make the work pop.

Cardboardram Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011
Thanks Kitty, I'm glad that you like this. :aww:
Interesting you'd say there's a photographic quality to this,
though I can see how that can be apparent, probably the depth of focus.
Man, I just love those types of chairs, they are so stylish and just awesome.
Would love to see you draw one! xDD

Gosh, sorry for taking so long to reply Kitty. I'm really not as active on DA anymore because life is so busy. Too much to do, too little time, but yes! I've seen all your work still, I can't think of what exactly to say (since you've posted so much since my last time really being here on DA (waugh!)) apart from how your style is still such a wonder to look at. >w<

But thank you~~ ;w; :heart:

I am sorry to see that you are not quite as active, but I love any replies that you can send. I am sorry that life is so busy, but a dull life is not a very fun life at all` You must be seeing and doing lots of new and different things that you can put into your artwork and share with the world (:

Yeah, rather have something to do then nothing...or well,
I wish I had nothing to do so I can draw forever (don't we all? *sigh*)
Thanks, although I have to admit that part of being busy is because
I'm just a really slow artist. X__X You seem rather busy yourself,
busy with tons of new ideas! Your Princess story sounds like a ton of fun.
I really love Dorky Rapunzel. XDD

And it finally surfaces on deviantart! Hooray!

Oh man I remember the livestream when you were first working it out. All you had was the basics. You were extremely frustrated, ahaha. ;; But the music was nice.

I watched the gif, and I was surprised to see how many times you changed the way Sherlock looked, even if only subtly. But it turned out wonderful! ( My favorite part is the record player ; u ; )

Cardboardram Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011
Pppfftt yeah I know right? Took me long enough. ffff. >2>

I think you caught my sketching livestream, did you find me coloring?
Or I think the coloring steam I did was mostly on the Background. *shrugs*
Hahaha, anyhow, thanks. I'm almost always frustrated with art because I can't
get what's on screen to match the awesome-ness in my head. uwu;;

God, Sherlock's face. I changed it at the end because what I had colored
was just...UGH. Plus it's kind of the point, I mean, the lighting and the
mood and all that was to accentuate his face and that part has to be good.
Which at the time it wasn't. x__x
