Welcome to the greatest Sherlock blog ever where alicexz and her (VERY) occasional co-mods andells and blue cry about all their feelings. This is the support group that's going to help you get through this difficult time... the gaping hole in your heart caused by yet another ridiculously long hiatus. Stay strong and reblog ALL THE #FANART.

It’s been a while since I made an animation, I wanted to work on one of the most beautiful shot in Sherlock: the bed scene in A Scandal in Belgravia. Traditional animation made with 28 different drawings on the same paper, it means that all the sketches in movement that you see, except the very last one, don’t exist anymore. I make a sketch, scan it, erase it and make the next one. If you look closely, you can see the lines of the previous one dissapearing slowly, they’re like ghost sketches! I’ve chose that cruel technique to create a ‘dream vision’ and because it’s easier than to do them separately.
All that’s left of this ephemeral art is the final drawing, that you can see here.
A4 paper, mechanical pencil, 2B - 4B pencil leads, kneaded eraser.
