Elementary, my dear Watson by Hoshino-Arashi Elementary, my dear Watson by Hoshino-Arashi
Hello Everyone.
This is my promotional image which will be sold as a poster soon at upcoming EXPOs (if they confirm my table) as well as some other artwork. If you have requests as to which anime I should draw next please comment here or send me a note... I'll be happy to hear your opinions.

Here is my take on Kobato. I had a great idea of portraying Kobato characters as characters from Sherlock Holmes! So Fujimoto is... nope not Sherlock... but Watson, Kobato-chan is his fiancée and Iorogi is Sherlock!! Omg! It was so much fun to work on this! I so loved it... and hope you will like it as well.

Feel free to drop me a line here and also visit my gallery or my blog.

This is a lovely idea! If you wished to do more Fujimato+Kobato in historical settings, it´d be quite welcome :)

Very nice! I love how soft the colours are as well as Basil's (in this case, Iorogi) expression here. I also love how you colour their hair :love:

What a fantastically fun concept! While we know Kobato is no Sherlock, Iorogi is perfect for the role! I love it!

well.. Kobato would never fit for this role to be honest ;) I was thinking Fujimoto might, but then I thought that he would be a perfect Watson ;)

It's awesome ! :O I really like the idea mixing Kobato with Sherlock Holmes (and especially the fact Ioriogi is Sherlock. X))
And Kobato looks so cute !! :heart:

again, a sterling piece of artwork val! What i find is zoomed out it looks say traditional like with actual paints and such but zoomed in you can really see the crisp lines and the unique shading you have. I think of all the pieces you've shown this is one of my favourites, I really like her face for some reason and the puppy on his shoulder is a very dainty and unique touch ^^

it is my fan work, I picked one anime and drew its characters as Sherlock Holmes characters... So I've combined two! And want I love about it is that their personalities perfectly fit the story!
