Walking in the rain: a reality. by LetsSaveTheUniverse Walking in the rain: a reality. by LetsSaveTheUniverse
Otherwise titled My experience of shopping today.

Going into town to buy blank cassette tapes was prioritized as an 8, so I went out today. Into the Winter wonderland wind and rain.
Although I found a massive book on TV/Film adaptations of Sherlock Holmes. When I say massive, I mean massive. It was ridiculous to carry, but I'm glad I did. Benedict is on the cover. :la:

I'm quite happy with how this one turned out, actually. Especially the expressions, simple as they are. ^^;

And, what's this? A coloured background?!
Yes. A slight break from tradition. Turns out you couldn't actually see my half-arsed attempt at rain on the green dA background, so I went all creative... and... gave it a pale blue background. >.<

I'm tempted to submit this as a print...

Ahem. Hope you like it, and thanks for viewing!

I know exactly how this feels! This is a brilliant cartoon by the way, the expressions are brilliant! And you've switched back to your old icon again! Have you been missing David Tennant too much? XD

Have I? I think it comes up on this page because when I submitted this, I still had my DT icon.
I still have my... me icon. ^^;

Heh, my hair's weird anyway. It's like.. it's normal until the ends, at which point it's like I've suddenly grown 76% more hair and it's all flicky and "OHAI DER I'M QWEN'S HAIR NOT THAT YOU'LL KNOW WHO QWEN IS BECAUSE I'M BLOCKING HER FACE". Hence the reason I wear a hat most of the time. ^_^ The good thing about this is that it doesn't actually get much worse in the rain, in fact I believe it gets better. U JELLY? U JELLY, BRO? U JELLY OF MAH CHEWBACCA HAIR? :D

I actually like reality!you's hair better in this comic. 'Tis all nice and wavy and stuff. ^_^

Oh, I'm having hair issues at the moment too. My fringe has almost grown past my chin, so I have to keep flicking it out of my eyes. Hats are definitely a good solution. I now wear bobble hats when I walk in the rain. Bobble hats are cool.

Oh, thanks. I personally prefer my hair straight, but the second picture does amuse me. Hence the icon change. ^^

Aww! D: *hands you hair clips* My fringe has grown out now, but it's still not long enough to tie back into a ponytail, so I end up inhaling it when I eat. O_o Bobble hats are cool! :D Not that I have one - just loads of caps. O_o Although I'm thinking of buying some cool hats at some point, like a fez or stetson or tricorn, etc. :D

Heh, I like the icon. ^_^ Very nice! ^_^

AND MERRY CHRISTMAS :la:

Am I weird if I like your hair after a little rainy shower ? ._.
It's sad it doesn't snow this year... I'd like to have a white Christmas!
That book seems great ! :la: And Benedict is on the cover, that's awesome!
I like the blue background, blue is cool! (Like bowtie and fezes :la:)

Thank you. ^^; I prefer my hair straight, myself - I can't deal with it when it goes fluffy.
It is a shame - I'd rather have a white Christmas than a rainy one. >.<

It's a fab book. :nod: It's got pictures of the different incarnations of Sherlock - so Benedict, Robert, Jeremy, Basil, and... one or two I don't recognise. :blush:

Thanks again! :heart:

Nice drawing! that's an experience that all girls have to live once in their life...but not me...yeah, sorry, my hair is actually quite smooth and clean under the rain, I'm very lucky :la:
I'd like to have a graphics tablet to be able to post my drawings a bit faster, I mean, I need a lot of time to clean and color my drawings, and that's annoying because I often loose my interest in what I do before being able to finish it... :facepalm:

Anyway, have a great christmas eve :happybounce:


(I'm a bit jealous about the book, but I saw a brilliant Pixar book that I will certainly buy one day...I don't care if you don't care :dummy:)

I often lose interest too. If I get bored with it, I dump it in a folder and forget about it. XD

Thanks! You too. :hug:

That sounds fab - I love Pixar. :happybounce:

But I have a question of very big importance:
Where did you get that book???

Need to know. Desperately.

LetsSaveTheUniverse Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011  Student Filmographer
Thank you! :aww:

I got it from my local library. It's called 'Sherlock Holmes on screen - the complete film and TV history' by Alan Barnes
I noticed it for three reasons:
- It says 'Sherlock Holmes' on it.
- It has Benedict Cumberbatch's face on it.
- At the top, as one of the little critic-y things, it says '"I love this book" - Steven Moffat'

Three excellent reasons, methinks. :nod:

:iconbabychamapollo:
BabychamApollo Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011
Three truly magnificent reasons!
I disagree with the local library. Only because the search computer-thingy claimed that none of the books I was looking for existed (only when my friend tried it, it worked perfectly well of course) and I threw a benny over it.
Reasonably, though.

I shall have to look for that book elsewhere.
Or see if my friend can find it in the library and borrow it off her... :3

I'm not going to spend the next twenty minutes formulating a plan or anything. *Shifty eyes*
