The Many Faces of Basil of Baker Street by Aralyn187 The Many Faces of Basil of Baker Street by Aralyn187
I think I had way too much fun with this project. :XD:

Over 18 hours of paint tool sai work, more than sixty screen shots taken in the process of this very large project, many of which had to be taken several times to get the expression I wanted. Then to narrow them down, which was tough seeing as he has so very many ‘good’ faces, was a trying task, and too pick a favorite to star at the center, well…You could no sooner ask Basil to pick his favorite type of evidence. In the end I managed to pick 28 top picks, and choose “Actually it’s elementary my dear Dawson.” As my top favorite, though it was hard, getting rid of all the other ‘good’ faces. Still this project was fun in and of itself.

Have fun with this, feel free to download as a wall paper, it works best with 1366 x 768.
I do not own Basil, Dawson, or Olivia, they all belong to Disney and Eve Titus, depending on whether you go with the movie or the book.

18 hours of the paint tool? Good Lord, your wrist must be killing you! :faint: All those hours really paid off, though. These are wonderful renditions of our famous mouse detective. :wow: It pleases me to see that these were all drawn and not screen-capped, adding an extra layer of your own style mixed in with Disney's. The second one from the bottom on the far left (face in front view) has always been a favorite. The third one at the top more on the left side (Captain Basil) is another favorite. Love the Dapper Basil too (next to Olivia glomping him). Good job, I'm very impressed! :D

Taking the time to draw Basil, a classic literary character, is definitely worth it! :D But give your wrist a rest for now. :aww:

Found them! There are five books, Basil of Baker Street, Basil and the Lost Colony, Basil and the Pygmy Cats, Basil in Mexico, and Basil in the Wild West, in that order.
Fun Fact: In the books Ratigan really isn't a rat, he's a mouse.

Though it not directly related, there is an anime/cartoon, of Sherlock Holmes. It's called Sherlock Hound, and every one is an animal, Sherlock is a red fox, Watson is a terrier, and Mrs. Hudson is a golden retriever. I started watching the first episode, it looks cool!
