True enough - but do you like the drawing? did the link to the larger line up work for you? It doesn't seem to in some browsers.

Is anyone else seriously creeped out by that head with octopus tentacles?

That would have been before I rejoined the conversation. I'd never seen this before, much less any responses to it.

Thanks for the comments,

Yes, I was a bit creeped out by the mascot ( especially as i had to decapitate Ranma to create it).

Here's a reposting of the Senshi Who collection - with a wording change suggested by a friend:

Let me know if the links don't work or if the second linked image is not larger than the first linked.

A new Senshi

Scene: London, that great cesspool into which all the Youma of the Empire are irresistibly drained.

And who faces down these creatures that the local constabulary cannot handle?

Hate to say it, but this is not one of your most inspired outfits.

Starting from the top, the hat is not well rendered. First off, the fore and aft bills are too narrow; they should meet up with the ear flaps. The ear flaps themselves are too wide; they should only be wide enough to fully cover the ears. Here's a page with several good pictures of Deerstalker caps being worn.

Even more than the magnifying glass, Sherlock was known for his Baskerville pipe, and there isn't one in this drawing.

Next, the typical Sherlock Holmes outerwear is the double layered Inverness cape, which this figure doesn't have at all.

Then there is no variation of color or pattern between the ribbon bows and bodysuit, or the suit and skirt. This is atypical of anything you've done before. The tights also shouldn't be the same pattern as the upper body, although there is at least a minor color variation on them. It'd be better if they weren't patterned at all.

Fortunately, most of it's easy fixes, and I think you did a great job on the hounds-tooth patterning.

Interesting fact about the curved pipe is that it became associated with Sherlock Holmes because one of the early actors portraying him decided to use that style so his face would not be obscured.

If I recall correctly the Deerstalker comes from the Television versions as well not the original books.

The books didn't give have much in the way of pictures, so it's only natural that portrayals in movies and on TV would shape how we think of him today. That's okay, though. It's a normal process that characters evolve when brought to life by actors. How many people can picture the characters of Harry Potter without the movie actors coming to mind anymore?

The changes to this rendition of Ranma make it look much better. And I do like the one with the pipe more than the one with the magnifier. ^_^

The only change I'd suggest now would be to make the boots and gloves the same color as the bows to tie it all together.

Very nice. But she needs a Mau advisor called Watson.
And that's the bottom line 'cause Dumbledork said so.

Actually the Deerstalker came from the illustrations made by Sidney Paget for the original publications in The Strand magazine.

Wikipedia wrote:Paget is also credited with giving the first deerstalker cap and Inverness cape to Holmes, details that were never mentioned in Arthur Conan Doyle's writing. The cap and coat first appear in an illustration for "The Boscombe Valley Mystery" in 1891 and reappear in "The Adventure of Silver Blaze" in 1893. They also appear in a few illustrations from The Return of Sherlock Holmes. (The curved pipe was added by the stage actor William Gillette.)

LOL. That cat...! Have to say, the cat does add the finishing touch. I think you're done with this one.
