La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie) by Raiecha La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie) by Raiecha
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Moriarty (Andrew Scott). I really hope i've done him justice cos he's my favorite ever. :la:

Anyway, Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos 4 and around 30-40 hours. (A LOT of re-configuration involved.)

Hope you like it! <3

Omg this draw is amazing!!! OwO Love Moriarty soooo much!!!! <3
Andrew Scott, portrays him perfectly! Best villain ever!
(Did you see episode 3 from the 3th series? I screamed from happiness at the end!!!)

YESSS I SAW IT! I was so happy; Moriarty has always been my favorite. I'm doing a new painting of him at the moment, I only have this one so far. Glad you like it :)

Same here!!!! OwO Moriarty is awesome and a much better villain than Cam! (He creeped me out D: )
Can't wait for the sequel, it seems we will not have to wait 2 years like the other time.. Probably they will air the next season at Christmas. Hopefully its true Yui Hirasawa (Castanets Dance) [V1] 
Omg I can't wait to see it finished!!!! I'm in lack of Moriarty fan art TwT 
Maybe I should make another one too…

CAM was SO horrible. I literally had to look away when he was flicking Johns face. What an awful man, and a fantastic actor to repulse us all like that. ;)

I heard we won't be waiting as long this time, too. I just hope things aren't rushed. I do quite enjoy a long hiatus to get everyone more and more desperate and curious. :P
Moriarty shall be finished soon! Ah, he's so bloody wonderful. <3

Omg same here!!! That flicking was atrocious… CAM repulsed me..
I was so happy when Sherlock pulled the trigger and killed that man without mercy! *Merry Christmas!* ;P
But yes you're right the actor did a wonderful work being the bad guy! 
It would ruin the show if they rush it.. so yea I hope they will take their time to write the scenario and hopefully it will be even more spectacular than the 3th series ^^ (my fav for the moment)
Oh gawd now I'm curious for your draw <3 Moriarty!! <3 <3

YES. That tie! I won't bother restating everything the people below me said, I agree with all of them!

Haha, thank you very much indeed. Moriarty is and probably always will be my favorite character in Sherlock. I'll have to paint him again soon after the new series is over.

I have to say Sherlock will always win first place for me, but Moriarty comes in second. And he has potential for so many awesome things. I really wonder how the new villain will make an impression after Moriarty.
