Sherlock Holmes in... by caycowa Sherlock Holmes in... by caycowa
Sherlock Holmes in the 19th/20th century
"Yes Watson, I've been awake for three days straight but only because 72 hours ago the cocaine ran out. So either supply me with a case, some cocaine or GTFO!!" AKA the time frame of the original canon Holmes, a number of the adaptions, and most of his frozen, honey-coated clones.

The violin always cracks me up.
For your convenience I, Watson have created this list of shit Sherlock knows. He knows nothing of this, nothing of this, nothing of that, he knows some of this but only what pertains to crime-solving and oh yeah, the violin. I asked upon him once but told me he was thinking and to shut up, then he threw his pipe at me. I decided not to question it further.


Sherlock Holmes in the 21st century
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Moffot and co for making a contemporary Sherlock Holmes that doesn't involve the premise 'crime is hard, clone Sherlock'. And by clone, I mean literally clone. Thank you, thank you. :love:

It was BBC Sherlock that began this picture, namely that's based in the 21st century which reminded me of the Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd century cartoon and I wanted to do a silly comparison. With the 19th/20th century.
I think we can agree that it all went down hill from there.

Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd century
The female descendent of Lestrade, a Moriarty clone, a robot Watson, and a cloned 'Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century!' What's not to love?
Depends of where your reaction to that summery falls on a scale of 'Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is spinning in his grave' to 'Sex bot Watson, you say?'

Me, I'm around the neighborhood of 'If I had a cloning machine, and access to Sherlock Holmes' DNA, that would be my weekend planned'.


Sherlock Holmes in the 24th century
AKA Sherlock Holmes in Star Trek:TNG
Arguably the best portrayal of a fictional character by another fictional character.

Data and Geordi La Forge play Holmes and Watson on the holodeck. As in all holodeck episodes this goes horribly, horribly wrong. When Geordi asks the computer to create a mystery in the style of a Sherlock Holmes mystery that can conceivably defeat Data, not Holmes, the Moriarty hologram gains sentience. Oops.

Later, likely bored out of his skull without Holmes to bother, he takes over the Enterprise and demands Picard create him a girlfriend. Things go horribly, horribly wrong.


Sherlock Holmes in your imagination
Your imagination is a very boring place, heavily influenced by depictions of Sherlock Holmes cartoons and movies. Your poor brain never really stood a chance. Sherlock Holmes will be covered head to toe in plaid forever.

That's okay, between the Robert Downey Jr movies, the one with Ianto and dinosaurs and the internet, not only can we indoctrinate new people into the fandom but we can royally screw them up at the same time.

Myself I'm going to work on convincing people Holmes is in fact a cat.


Sherlock Holmes in your perverted imagination
The best parts were always when Kirk ripped off his shirt and punched out the rubber alien monster, rescuing the hot-alien chick.

Oh wait that was my Star Trek screenplay.
What were we talking about? Oh yeah Sherlock Holmes..... JAM IS NOT A LUBRICATE!!!


Sherlock Holmes in Doctor Who
No not The Talons of Weng-Chiang where the Fourth Doctor donned a deerstalker and faced off against a giant rat in the sewers of Victorian London. Sherlock Holmes isn't in that.
Not even the MA novel Evolution where Sarah Jane Smith and the Fourth Doctor (who again dons a deerstalker) meet Arthur Conan Doyle and some mermaids. Still no Sherlock Holmes.

No, that's the stuff of the NA novel All-consuming Fire in which the Doctor (seventh) hangs out with Holmes and Watson. Fuck Yeah!


Sherlock Holmes in Arsene Lupin, Gentleman-thief
Sherlock Holmes arrives too late!
The world most famous detective faces off against the world most famous thief, brain-style, and loses. Awkward.
At least he gets to keep his name half the time. After all it doesn't matter what they say about you so long as they spell your name right.

(Unpictured)
Herlock Sholmes Vs. Arsene Lupin in Night Hood. LMFAO
'Elementry, my dear Lupin'


Honorable mentions

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes
Wishbone
Basil, The Great Mouse Detective
House M.D
Cupcakes 2: Forelock and Trotson in the Case of the Dreadful Disappearances. (Okay so this might just be my personal MLP:FiM canon)



Sherlock the cat
If you search on dA for 'Sherlock cat', this picture is now the seventh result. Excellent, my plan is working perfectly. :plotting:

I always felt like 22nd!Holmes was a combination of Classic Holmes and standard portrayal(or imagination, as listed). Same fellow, just mellowed out due to age, probably...
Great sketches!

I used to watch Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd century  &  are you sure he was a clone.... i thought they used the body of Holmes preserved in honey & basically regenerated it.

I am...And no, he's not a clone. The man himself was brought back from the dead! By a scientist who looks like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in cool sunglasses! Actually, come to think of it, watching this cartoon as a child got me into Sherlock Holmes.

There actually is a manga now where Sherlock has been reincarnated as a dog and Watson as the new owner of said dog...It's actually really good, it's called Sherlock Bones.

This picture is frickin' awesome, but your list of descriptions for each version is a gazillion times awesomer :D Oh, and I love your depiction of 19th/20th century Holmes because YES. My imagination has happily not been too tainted with plaid!Holmes, since I never saw any adaptations before reading the actual stories when I was really little, so I was LOLZ BITCHY BATTY COKE ADDICT LOLZ and it was awesome. But on the other hand, plaid!Holmes IS a little piece of canon!Holmes isn't he? He's not *wrong*, just....incomplete. So I have a little soft spot for him too ;)

Incidentally, one of the reasons I liked the 2009 films is not that I think RDJ!Holmes is the most true to canon!Holmes or anything, but because it explored the piece of canon!Holmes that gets ignored most frequently. I mean, really, canon!Holmes is such a serialized character by nature -- far too many different facets given varying focus throughout the stories to ever all fit into a film -- that every non-TV-show adaptation has to take one piece of canon!Holmes and leave the rest of him out, and therefore I was absurdly happy when the 2009 movie decided that the piece of canon!Holmes it would take was the sadly-neglected Sign of Four-ish "Oh so now you're in love? Well FINE I'VE GOT MY COCAINE BOTTLE TO DROWN IN BITCH PLZ" piece :D

But Datalock is the best thing in the lineup. Not the best *Holmes*, just the best THING. :heart:

Do you have (or would you be interested in making) a similar lineup of Watsons?

Datalock is the best thing. :lol: 
Thank so very much. I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

I don't know about doing a Watson version that's the same as this, like as in 20th century, etc. but I might do a version with various Watsons at some point in the future.
