This (collectively) is my second wallpaper ever...for Sherlock Holmes or for anything else! They're all variations on a theme.

The text is from A Study in Scarlet.

Download links have just been moved to my dA from Megaupload after some people said they had issues with pop-ups at the latter.

Made my first-ever wallpaper, a Holmes and Watson thing. Figured it was high time I replaced the default one that came with my PC :-) Learned some new things in Photoshop and stayed up waaayyy past my bedtime for the second night in a row, so it was all good.

Uh-oh...new addiction. The bat was meant to be a one-off, but now I'm hooked.

My knotwork wolf, in which I abandon all pretense of doing knotwork on a grid and just free-hand the thing.

Next attempt will likely be a hawk. As I've never been adept at drawing birds in flight, I foresee I'll need a reference pic for this.

Was going to work on fixing up [livejournal.com profile] guede_mazaka's icon, but then realized the file's on my work computer. And what are icon files doing on my work computer, you ask? Uh...

So I'm doing this instead. Been doing icons lately using other people's knotwork, but this is my own knot.

Overcame my technology woes (yay!), for the most part anyway, to work on it. I didn't get to scan it in, but I did manage to take a very fuzzy picture with my friend's digital video camera (you know, the sort that lets you do vidphone conversations). Since the camera's not set up to take that sort of detailed pic, it meant I had to re-trace all the lines by hand--with a mouse, which is hard!--before finishing it in GIMP...so the lines are shakier than I'd like, but I've finally decided that it lends just that touch of hand-drawn charm to the finished art.

I wasn't planning on doing a bat, honest. Once I realized the start of the knot I was drawing looked like ears, it was all downhill from there. Stupid sexy movie won't leave my head.

I usually do my knotwork with a grid, so this was the first time I tried it free-hand. I really like it way it turned out.

Edited: replaced by neater version.
