Don't be shy. by FarTooManyIdeas Don't be shy. by FarTooManyIdeas
Oh, Benedict Cumberbatch... I honestly didn't think I could love you more. But now, I LOVE YOU TO DEATH. DEATH. Get it? Death? You know, "I am DEATH." Haha. My Sherlock, I'm funny.

Made this before the movie came out, though after watching the trailer many many times. That one clip, where we first got a good glimpse of him, is what inspired this "pose". The sculpture was going to happen anyways (since I love the story, the book itself for it, and I love making sculptures), but the trailer gave me this specific idea. By the way, that movie was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The actors, animators, and concept artists really gave us something to behold. And my god, THAT SONG. Herz 

So, why has it taken so long for me to post it? Well, I took so many pictures of it, I haven't been able to decide! Now, I'm just gonna put them all up, 'cause otherwise, I'll never figure it out... Enjoy! :D

The book is Danish. Didn't have an English copy on hand and wouldn't have been able to wait anyways for one if I'd ordered.

Oh yes, Smaug is searching for the little hobbit who has jumped out of the book to try and escape him. coin:Coin:Super Mario Bros.3 CoincoinEye of Dragon:Coin:coin "WHERE ARE YOU?..." Smaug's Eye Stamp by xXEclipseTheCatXx

Meiko Honma Menma (Excited) [V1] WOW. THANK YOU! Well... As this is fast becoming my most popular piece, I'll make a note here. At some point in the near future (once time allows), I'll be making sculptures (wire/recycled/book sculptures like this and as are in my gallery) with the intention of selling them. - - - Many different fairytales/stories/fandoms (making some super fans out there happy... If you've ANY SUGGESTIONS for books to be made into sculptures or what have you, by all means, leave them). - - - But, yeah. SO, if you're interested in my work, WATCH ME and that will let you know whenever I've something to sell. I imagine I'll put them up here on deviantart with a [FOR SALE] in the title and links. - - - THANKS AGAIN! AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! AND REMEMBER, SHERLOCK'S ON SUNDAY!
