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

[JESUS I'M LAZY]
I finished several drawing a while ago but I've been so out of DA nowadays. =A= (too much trouble)
Just saying this is probably going to be a regular thing, me ducking in then disappearing again...though since I've got 2 other drawings I can say I'll be back 2 consecutive days to upload those. Durpdurp.

[ART COMMENT]
I finally got to watch Moulin Rogue at the beginning of September (oh wow, took me a while to get this done...) and I just loved the Roxanne Tango so much. I remember having a burning desire to draw Sherlock and John doing a Tango at the time. So there we are.

Oh, and bonus animated Gif of the progress. As you can see I speedpaint rather messily. =w=

[SPEAKING OF TANGO]
My friend told me about another Tango Song which I ended up listening to over and over again along with El Tango De Roxanne while drawing this. It's "Two Men" from Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity show. (For those who don't know, Zumanity is Cirque's Adult show. And this dance is actually really intense. Though with that said, I just need to draw attention to how utterly fantastic the art of it all is. ;w; )

That is just gorgeous. Tugs the heartstrings of both my Sherlockian and Dancer's heart. :heart:

I just wish there was one of Sherlock and Molly. :(

*saw vid* Wow, though, I don't think John can move like that, with his injury and all. <:] Plus, I see Sherlock as more of traditional dancer. >////<

I can prevent myself to add it to my favs'
THAT IS JUST GORGEOUS! Especially colours, and the sun ray in the middle.

#ShiibaTashen: A fanfic they're dancing? I think - even if that is not Benedict *cry*- that the second movie with RDJ could be perfect...

*think about it seriously* ...Right, a fanfic is better ;))[link]

Man, I find it so mind-boggling whenever I'm
recognized in unrelated places oAo (or Just DA? I don't link to myself on Tumblr here..)
But anyhow, I'm sketchlock on Tumblr. :D

Recognized you both on tumblr and dA !Well I found some of your drawings on tumblr and particularly fell in love with the "Tango" one. Then, you know, rolling on dA, found Tango, went mad then faved ^^ And thank you for your tumblr name, I wasn't sure :heart:

No problem. I'm actually not that active on DA anymore, I've been much more active on Tumblr, though I have to admit that these days it's pretty exhausting in the Sherlock fandom because it's like being bombarded with news EVERYDAY. So I'm not sure how much I can keep it up there either, but then again maybe this is just my mood talking. Ahaha, sorry for basically complaining here, I guess I'm more tired then I thought I am. =w=;; Anyhow, thanks again, I really appreciate your support, I'm glad you like "Tango" that's one of my favorites. ;w;

Oh, that's absolutely gorgeous, I love it! And thank you very much indeed for the Zumanity link - not seen that before and just WOW!

The colours you've used here are so perfect for the scene, it's a hugely dramatic piece, absolutely perfect :D

OH MAN VERITY. How's it been!? I've been so inactive on both LJ and DA over here, ;~; I don't even know if you'll actually see these replies. Aaaaa. But I hope you've been well either way. I've missed you, but I think that would be my fault for not doing a better job with keeping up. *sigh* But thanks so much for commenting on my recent stuff here, imagine my surprise and delight to hear from you again. :hug:

I'm glad you like the Zumanity link, it's definitely an amazing watch. Just. WOW GOSH. THAT ART. THAT PASSION! OAO And thanks for your thoughts on this, I feel like I never really get to do dramatic pieces as much as I want to so this was a triumph.

Thank you dear friend. ;w;
Mannnn I will just never stop feeling guilty about not keeping up,
it's really harder and harder to do things to the quality that I want to
between real life and the internet. *sigh* (if that even makes sense.)

I'm just really honored to have earned your respect.:heart:
