This artwork has a bizarre story. I was looking on the Internet for a significant image of The Sign of Three
, the second episode of Sherlock
Season 3, and I came across a photo depicting Sherlock and Watson in ceremonial clothes. At first I was looking for a picture of Mary, played by the lovely Amanda Abbington, but I liked that photo and decided to take it as reference. After I finished the drawing, I discovered that photo was actually manipulated and that, in the original version, there was Mary too. How embarrassing.
I was uncertain until the last moment whether to destroy the drawing, but in the end I opted for some corrections. Well, basically I included Mary, restoring her rightful place.
