Awesome!!! I'll check them out then!!! One mystery TV series I'm into right now is Poirot, have you heard of it? I'm sure my library will carry some of the BBC Holmes shows though!
Ahah yeah thats an epic scene!! I seem to always hear it or see it around xD Glad it was recognizable in my comic ^u^

Eek you need to watch Sherlock BBC <3333 Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are flawless in their acting and the plots are based off Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books x)
I remember Watson set off the fire alarm in Irene Adler's home so that Sherlock would notice where she looked first, like the last page of this comic xD I was like YES I KNOW THAT PART xD Haha~
I understand :D You're welcome~
Ah thankyou so much!!! *highfives* Lol your avi is coolio~ I actually haven't watched much Sherlock Holmes shows or movies, I'm more into the books!! Yes check out the books if you like to read, they are awesome!!
and thanks for checking out my manga... It was for practice so I might not continue but I'm happy that people still enjoy it!
Omg I love this <333
As you can tell by my John Watson avi, I love Sherlock x) But I've only seen the BBC and Robert Downy Jr. renditions~ I really need to read the books sometime.

^_________________^ <-- my smile is this big right now!!!
I'm so glad you read this! KYAAAA and I'm so happy that you think it looks pro! x3 I'm going to be floating on clouds for the rest of the day now^^ I'm super happy :D Thankyou!!!
The only bad thing is that I sort of dropped this. I started it so that I could get some practice on drawing. The story is based on an actual written work, you'll know if you read Sherlock Holmes^^ But I think I've kinda evolved from this now... I've turned my attention to the one-shot with Kaji! I really want to put my all into it^^ I may come back to this manga, but I'm really not sure. Thats the sad thing :( But I'm super duper happy you enjoyed it!! Now I feel even more confident heading into my one-shot manga! :DDD

Yeah thats whats happened to me a few times too xD BUt I really like picnik.com... Sad thing is that they are closing by April!! D:
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/25/12 | Reply
Yeah! Probably! Maybe I wasn't that interested the day I tried it!
LOL you understand Calculus but not picnik.com!?! just kidding xD Its actually more easy! Maybe the setup is different the when you last saw it? I think its a lot easier then GIMP or photoshop! O_O
I checked out picnik once but I didn't get it...
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/24/12 | Reply
Actually I add the water mark on a site called picnik.com! Its a free site where you can do all sorts of edits and text! And the sad thing is that its shutting down in April and transferring to Google+ but the good news is that all the premium features are available for free! you should definitely check it out :D
So how are you adding that water mark? Photoshop???

LOL I know, I'm lazy! I've actually gone ahead and planned a few more pages so at least I will know how to do it once I sit down and get to work! I'm glad you like it so much^^ I'll definitely continue as soon as I can (cuz you motivate me so much!) ;D
I need to continue reading your comic as well :D I'll leave you some comments once I get the time to keep reading!
Just 2 more pages??? Don't keep us waiting make more!!!
I read the story about Irene Adler when I was little so I'm glad to see a small summary of it here!!!
This is so great!!! And you make it so heart warming!!!

Aww!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!!! Hugs back! If you don't want to go to college don't go. 'Cause it's a huge sacrifice. It's very different from school and you have to be very determined. Plus it's very nerve wrecking. I'm sorry I'm being so negative but I just took a test!!! I'm tired!!!
Hey izuzu! Yeah =_= That annoying test... Its cuz I was homeschooled for most of highschool so I didn't get an official diploma. So if I want to go to college, I need to take this test. I don't want to go to college, but I think I should do the test just in case^^ Thanks so much *hugs*
Thankyou my friend^^ I'm glad you like it, and hopefully I can continue to post more pages soon :D
Wow! Although you're not in school anymore you have to take a test? Sounds annoying... Oh well! Good luck on your test!!!

Thankyou! I can't even explain how happy and thankful I am to read your comments^^
Thankyou so much! I will stick with it then!! It'll be hard but I'm going to get this done :D Thankyou so much Bonnie^^
Oh you're so lucky to have storylines! I'll never underestimate story ideas now that I know how hard it can be to come up with them >_< I think I'm still in writers block xP I'm trying to think of a good cool hockey storyline but I'm getting awfully stuck and I'm even jealous of those pro mangakas (I know, thats utterly absurd).
I can't wait to see your comics! Summer will give you lots of free time eh? ;D And I'm sure you'll pass your midterms with flying colours! Talk to you soon! <3

How could I not comment? XD
I've been keeping an eye on this project of yours from the very beginning, so now it's only natural to leave a few thoughts with each page you load up :3
I know! Sometimes it's hard to keep the pages coming, because I'm sure you're dying to try new stuff. But stick to it and you'll be so proud at the end.
I just found some of my notes for my original stories. So far I have about 6 different story lines laid out, I'm just trying to decide what I should first ;D I know I'll been spending some time on reading week to do stuff I wanted to do during winter break, but before I get there, I must pass these next two midterms!
Take cares~! ^__^

Lol I knew that you would comment! *hugs* I'm feeling really bothered about starting it again as I'm lazy and now I can see some of my mistakes. Plus, I'm dying to start new projects xP BUT I shall not give up!! I'm gonna finish this :D
Thanks so much for your comments, my friend! ^_^
YAY!!! You updated two pages. They look great!
I like the city view, it looks like it must have taken a long time :3
Keep up the great work, I'm eagerly waiting ;D

Thankyou so much! I'm glad that you checked this out! I'm struggling to finish it though Dx I really wanna get it done but I'm so distracted by other more colourful fun artworks. But I'll try my best to finish it asap! Maybe in my free time! I'm sure that I'll get it done though cuz I'm determined to finish it and my friends such as you really motivate me!!
Thats so cool! I love Sherlock Holmes too and this comic is based on one of my favourite short stories^^ Oh I hope you draw some manga stories as well!!! I'd love to read them^^ And if you have any questions, let me know and I can try to help out! :D *highfives*
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/07/12 | Reply
Ugh, I'm not in school anymore but I can understand how much time college would take up =_= I'm actually studying for a test right now so that i can get my highschool diploma and I barely can find time enough to do that cuz I end up spending too much time reading, drawing, playing with my dog, or hanging out on theO xD I would be so busy if I had to do a lot more studying, which I probably should be doing xP Anyway, I'm sure that I'll get everything done! And you will too! Cuz we both wanna read each others mangas^^
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/06/12 | Reply
I'm the same way! I also have a lot of pages waiting to be posted but they have to be inked first and I can't find the time to do it!!! Right now I'm doing college work!!!
I'm a failure this weekend Dx I didn't get any comic done even though I said that I would DX Terrible me!
And don't think that you're pressuring me or anything! On the contrary, you're really making me think of starting again. I'm just so distracted! UGH, I've been thinking of the next few pages though. Since the book is already written, I just have to read the last few pages and draw storyboards. I maybe should of done the whole storyboard right away, but I'm sorta glad I didn't cuz I end up changing a lot as I ink. Anyway, I shall not give up! I shall finish this manga!! I actually have pages waiting to be posted so I should post them and maybe it'll inspire me! ;D Sorry again!
Oh I'm watching the Fruits Basket Anime with KK! Its so cute^^
I haven't read the other manga you mentioned though... I only have been interested in manga since last June, so I'm fairly new to a lot of the series. I'm trying to catch up to everyone who's already read them all!
Yeah. Bakuman is just awesome! And its so inspiring!! There are some slow parts, but it makes the exciting parts so much more fun! (Once in the book, I actually started sweating cuz I was scared something bad was gonna happen xD)
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/05/12 | Reply
Yeah I noticed 'cause I checked your comic and it still just had 14 pages... But all in good time!!!
That sounds fantastic! I'll try doing that soon!!!
Wow, really??? The first manga I started reading where Case Closed, FMA and Fruits basket, back in Jr. High. I feel so OLD!!! But yeah! I want to read bakuman I bet I can get some tips on how to make manga by reading it!
Thanks! I think my sister said that you subbed to her^^ Thats so nice :D She'll probably not be online as much as me, but I think she's starting to already get the hang of what to do here!
LOL can you believe it?... I got nothing done yesterday (lazy me!!!) I'm going to for sure work on some storyboard pages today though. I think I'll really start working more when I just get it started again^^'
Haha no problem! Ok so if someone adds you as a guestposter to their world, you don't have to do anything to join... The world owner adds you from their backroom! So I'll go add you right now^^ I'm so glad you want to join!!!! And one thing, sometime when you're free can you write up a profile and draw a chibi for yourself? In our artist cubby, we have introductions for each of us^^ You can use our profiles for reference on what you should do. Your chibi should be about 200x200 pixels or so. And also if you have questions, let me know! :D
Lol I totally echo what you said! Time is either passing way too fast or we just get too busy =_= I'm actually reading quite a few mangas right now but then afterwards I remember that I totally forgot to do somethings that I needed to do xP
Anyway, whenever you get the time definitely read Bakuman!! Its one of my most favourite series and its the first one I started reading^^
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/04/12 | Reply
I'll go check her out then!!! I hope you do finish a page!!
How do I join??? I know I'm part of two worlds but I seriously have no idea how. Once I went into my backroom and it just said that I was. But I never joined!!!! So can you explain that a bit??? I wouldn't mind joining your world!
I know about bakuman and I've always wanted to read it!!! But you know TIME. I wish I had time for everything... College days... take my time away... I feel like I'm getting so old...
Thankyou! You're keeping me motivated^^ I hope to get a page done today, with help from my sis!
Oh she joined theO yesterday too! Her account name is KK Slider^^
Lol my Artist Cubby is the world where I posted my Copic info and stuff^^ You can join as a guest poster if you'd like! And you can post anything related to your art or any art or anything interesting that you find about art xD lol
Here's the direct link ^_^
Hahaha! xD You're right! Except my sister gets nervous sometimes when she helps me... she's not used to drawing with a pen yet so I'm trying to help teach her. She likes helping out though^^ (its not like I force her xD LOL) Oh have you ever read the manga Bakuman? If not your should definitely check it out or watch the anime! Its about two guys who want to make a manga together... way cool! :D
Looking forward for you to finish it!!!
What's an artist's Cubby???
Wow! That's so much fun! You get help inking just like a published mangaka!!! Sometimes I think of getting some help too!!!
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/03/12 | Reply
Thanks for your questions, Izu!!!! I'm so glad you're curious cuz that means i can answer your questions and get more motivated! Ah you're making me embarrassed but happy xD I'm not a master yet! I have so much work to do! xD
And I'll definitely finish it! Thanks for your support and encouragement! You RULE!!!!
Oh yeah, my scanner is broken =_= I don't think its ever really worked anyway... My family has to buy so much new things right now xD A scanner is on the top of the list! And my camera broke last year before Christmas, so I've been using my sister's camera instead. I hope it holds out on me!
I shall see what I can do tomorrow... Maybe I can get some time to work on it! :D
Thankyou!! I actually was inspired by seeing a similar motion in a manga, but it was much more simple.. I'm glad I didn't mess it up with too much detail! No its not a stupid question at all! I'm staying with the original story and script, but I do add little things and cut out some dialogue... stuff like that! I exaggerate some stuff a bit more too. I try to keep pretty close to the original story though. And its a short story! I just can't seem to get the manga done fast xP
LOL! You're making me get closer and closer to continuing this manga! My sister has been helping me ink earlier so it gets done a lot faster, but then i always have to find days that we both are able to work on it^^
Yeah, I do a pencil sketch first... I should post some of my page sketches soon too, to show you! A lot of the times, its just a bunch of scribbles though.... I know what I'll do, as soon as I can I'll go dig up my storyboards (more like scribbleboards xD) and then I'll post them in the Artist Cubby! And don't worry, its not a problem! I've been wanting to do this, I just have been too lazy xD I wish i could do pens and marker right away though =_=
xD you're just so super sweet, Izu!!!
Gasps I'm done! That was quick. Finish it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BTW I just noticed that you take pics of the pages you don't scan them. Is there a particular reason? I'm a very curious person! I just wanna learn from the masters so I can keep improving!
The movement of the keys in pg 11 is genius! Did you stay true to the original script or did you spice things up? I'm guessing you had to since it's originally a narrated story not a dialogue. Stupid question, sorry!
Pg 6 & 7, talk about mean!!!!!!!!!!! Haha!!!! Made me laugh!!! BTW Do you do a draft in pencil first or do you just start with pens from scratch???
WOW! Like I said before naturally talented!!!
Thankyou so much, my friend! No I've never taken lessons... I guess it would be fun if I did though! My mom was into a lot of art and i also used to really like photography so maybe that's how I learnt it. I'm glad you really like it!!
Your perspective in pg 2 is amazing! Did you take professional lessons?

I shall definitely take a look as soon as I can then!! I'm so excited^^ I love reading fan comics created by my friends!! I'll leave you comments while I read it too^^ Maybe we can inspire each other to get our comics done (after we also get our busy schedules over with xP)
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/01/12 | Reply
Oh yes! Please do!! My fancomic was the purpose of my starting this account!!! The first drawings are embarassing but I believe it slowly improves until around page 40 you can actually see a great difference between the first pages and the latest ones that I've added! I too am facing problems finising it 'cause I'm so extremely busy with college! Oh well!!!

Thankyou!!!! I can't tell you how much your comments motivate me^^ You're such a nice person! I'm glad you checked out my manga. I love Sherlock Holmes as well, but now I'm having trouble finishing this one >_< I wish I wasn't so busy! Hopefully I'll get back to it soon :)
Yep, I used grey and black copic pens and markers for this. The water mark was something i only started doing for precaution... I think its a good idea, just to be safe! I'll have to visit your portfolio and check out your fan comics!!! :D
I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ever since I was little I've been a Sherlock holmes fan!!! Your art here is so amazing and has such a unique style!!! This was all pens and markers, right? Amazing!!! The watermark idea is genius!!!! Maybe I should start putting a watermark in my fan comic pages too!!!

Um AWESOMEST DRAWING EVER!
I'm reading some sherlock stories now, theyre so good!
BBC did a TV series (well just 3 episodes) of modern sherlock holmes and they were so cool I just had to start reading the originals.
Great Great Great drawing!
No problem!! I LOVE this long comment!!! Thanks for all your kind words, I'm SO happy you enjoyed reading it^^
Just one thing, I based it off of an original story by an actual writer so I didn't have to write much :P I'm using the book to guide me... I'm actually a bad writer lol. I get writer's block more then artist block, and that's why I have trouble when I think of starting my own story/manga xP But I'd love to give you tips on perspective, though I hope I have good enough tips xD When people ask me about how I do my perspective, I can't think of how I do it... so I figured its instinctive. But I've picked up some cool ideas so I'll send them in a PM for you (since it'll take up too much space here )
I love your feedback... You've made me feel really happy and confident about continuing to draw the story. I've taken a little break now that the holidays are coming up (busy busy busy!) but I can't wait to start posting again! And yes, I used Copic markers for this. Mostly just grey tones and black so I get starved for colour xD Thanks again for checking it out and leaving such an awesome comment! Haha this one is pretty long too xD

This was also well written and I really love the toning job you're doing!!! I'm so glad I took some time to read this!!!
You'll have to give me some tips on writing a story and tips on perspective since I'm really bad at it!(not to mention I don't know where to start too)
I have never really read Sherlock Holmes or even watched the movies, but I think the characters in your story in in character, I also like the way they talk to eachother.You really put a lot of thought into this!
I'll be looking forward to more!! also are you using copics for this?
lol sorry for the long comment! XD

Hey, just a minor note on the third page, You have Mrs. Hudson calling Watson 'Dr. Holmes'. I may not be seeing a comma or something, but just incase i wanted to say it.
I had initially commented asking if this was based off of the official short story by Sir Doyle. Sorry, but i didnt read your initial comments at the bottom of the pages. Turns out, thats exactly what your doing. Sorry for that!
