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

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

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.

I think they're on a par for me. Loving Sherlock himself is a given, so besides him, Moriarty always stands out for me. I have high hopes for the new villain, I think so far this series has lacked the consistent threat which Moriarty brought to the table. We shall see!

This is really good!!!! Geez you know what your doing!!! I adore Moriarty, I don't know how Milverton can possibly be a better villan than him :3

Raiecha Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't either! I absolutely love Moriarty, he's fantastic and Andrew Scott who plays him is just the most wonderful actor. Let's hope Milverton is a suitable replacement, although I don't think he'll out-do Moriarty - how can he possibly?! Thank you very much for your kind words! :)

As Moriarty himself once said, Good!!! Verrry good!!!  I love how they both have those matching tuxedo colors, and I LOVE that you put the smiley face in the locket instead of a photo, or even nothing . . . it makes sense for Moriarty.  Not even a personal object would show any sense of humanity in him.  He wouldn't be so sentimental as to put anyone's picture there , and leaving it empty wouldn't be good enough (even the suggestion that he doesn't care about anyone/no one cares about him is too cliche).  The smiley face is Moriarty's mocking threat message.  I could see him putting it there to throw off anyone going through his personal things, looking for clues.  It would be his way of saying, "Gotcha! Did you really think you were going to find anything here? Then you have no idea who you're dealing with."  

Or he could have drawn the smiley in the locket just for fun, just to be irreverent.

And you got his poker face wonderfully.  The face he can slip on and off in a second -- one moment a psychopath, the next…you couldn't tell what he's thinking.  Every time I watch the pool scene from "The Great Game," I'm amazed by how quickly he goes from one expression to another.  Like when he snarls, "I will burn. . . the heart..." and suddenly his voice and face slide into a kind of apologetic "That's just how things are. What can I do?" expression as he finishes -- "...out of you"

Heh, sorry -- I can go on and on about this show if I don't catch myself ^^;
