Sherlockian Pixels by Galadnilien Sherlockian Pixels by Galadnilien
It was a dark and stormy night, so I felt the need to pixel something Sherlock. Iíve got another larger pixel doll in the works but wanted to work on something different and Iíve recently become obsessed with BBC Sherlock so it was inevitableÖ. The theme song is now my ringtone even.
Included in the little still life are fun Sherlock insiders: the skull, jam, ďget milkĒ note, kitten paw prints (in the jam, sort of hard to make out), onions, and a little honey bee. I was tempted to add a little heart, but decided I liked the no nonsense version (though of course itís more or less all nonsense). I wonít explain the meaning behind all these things; Sherlock fans know already and everyone else should go watch Sherlock and become an onion.

Hand pixeled.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-10-29
The suggester said: "This piece of intricate pixelling brought a smile to my face when I discovered it. Not only is it a wonderful reference to the BBC Sherlock series but it also makes beautifully smooth use of dithering and patterns whilst maintaining a colour count of 40."

Can someone list the BBC episodes in order please? My friend sent me links but said they're out of order and I don't want to skip around. Aside from that request, I commented to say that this is absolutely lovely! I'm a big fan of pixel art and this is some really good pixel art if I do say so myself! :meow: I'm no good at it personally so it brings me to admire it all the greater.

Thank you very much! Oh dear, I'm crying now. I just watched that last one. Feels like someone broke my heart then stitched it back together and gave me hot chocolate. 
:iconsadcraiplz: And suddenly this work of art takes on a whole new level of meaning...

The very Moment I was visiting your page 4 Months ago and commissioned you, I knew that you would get a Daily Deviation. I mean, for real. I knew it. ;v;

I never understood why you didn't had more Pageviews. Your Art is just amazing and you definitely deserve this DD here. Congratulations. uwu

I know what everything means! And I'm not even involved in the fandom.
Isn't Sherlock just the best series ever?
Anyways, I love this pixel work of yours, everything is perfectly drawn and shaded, my favourite is the jam.
Beautiful work.
