FINALLY! GOD! Seriously, I thought I couldn't able to finish it! Here's my contest entry for 's contest DGM101's Annual Big! Contest 2013
I know it would take me several hours but.... it surpassed my expectations. I almost dead, I kept working for ten hours without break (really, neither for to drink water). But seeing how it become wonderful more them I imagined at first, it was Worth, really (´ V `#)
At the start I had not any idea, but when I was watching Sherlock Holmes (the first one), suddenly this idea become to my mind, and I think... "Oh well... maybe it can be work right". And... TADAAAM! Although I had some problem to decide which dgm character will be in the Sherlock Holmes universe, mainly Kanda changed a lot, first I chose he'll be the Holmes, but after I noticed the Moriarty (The Millennium Earl) is Holme's greatest enemy I had to come back to the start and trie to think once again (and also reading a lot of references of Sherlock Holmes), but anyway, everything ended right.
I spent whole time to sketching, paiting, seaching for great fonts and write an article first in portuguese and after in english, editing... But well, as I said before it was Worth. I have to say I pretty like it c:
Your know which relationship Holmes and Arsène have, aren't you? (my dears, probably I'm writting something wrong during I'm exhausted D I APOGIZE FOR MY BAD ENGLISH!!
But editing it in "Paint" program was cruel I need to buy a tablete to install some programs, really. Start to drawing a digital drawings.
Allen Walker as Sherlock Holmes Kanda Yuu as Dr. Watson Lavi as Inspector Lestrade Miranda Lotto as Mrs. Hudson The Millennium Earl as Professor Moriarty Lulu Bell as "Sebastain" Moran Lenalee Leeas Mary Watson Road Kamelot as Irene Adler Marian Cross as Arsène Lupin (I chose the Tyki first, but after I changed my mind) Arystar Krory III as Police Jasdevit as crimials
I really wanted to draw more character, like Timcampy as Gladstone...
p.s: Please, I'd love if you read this newspaper. I really spent an hour to write this article (` A ´)=3 p.p.s: I know I mixed some hairstyle but ignore it, please
Minha nossa, por fim consegui terminar D: Passei horas sem dar intervalo para poder terminar hoje, que é o último dia de entrega... Isso que acontece se deixar uma coisa para a última hora. Mas não tive tanta culpa, estava sem ideia até que, por um momento estava assistindo ao Sherlock Holmes: Jogo de Sombras (again) e puft! Meus olhos brilharam. E não é que funcionou?
Só tive problemas para poder decidir qual personagem seria quem, principalmente quem seria o Holmes e Dr. Watson (inicialmente coloquei o Kanda como Holmes, mas não colou). A parte horrível foi escrever o artigo como se fosse um jornal mesmo, e depois ter que editar no programa PAINT. Tinha esquecido pesadelo que esse programa me dá.... Mas enfim, está terminado c:
Awesome idea with this newspaper! ^^ The ten hours of work were totally worth it. I think it came out great. I really like the "photos" and stories you wrote. Dr. Watson (Kanda) has a wife XD I wonder how they relationship would look like
Thankies~ I give all credits to Sherlock Holmes (the first movie). If I hadn't watched this movie I would never have this idea. Thank you for the compliments
I believe it'd be completly diffrent than the movie version. Maybe when 'this' Watson would talk a bit rude to Holmes, probably Mary would argue with him, saying something like "Don't do that, John. My sincere apologize, Mr. Holmes". She would prtect Holmes, and not her husband. Lol God! It's too different D:
Over all, it was a great article. The content of it kept my interest, and the art is wonderful. (I love Lavi's expression. ) It was a little hard to read, though. Maybe you could get someone fluent in English to proofread and edit the text? I'm not too familiar with Sherlock Holmes's universe myself (although I did have to read a short story for English), but wouldn't it make more sense if you switched Lavi's and Kanda's roles? I'd give it four out of five faces.
Thank you for compliment and the most importante, for the critique! I was waiting for someone give me this kind of comment, thank you
I know my enlglish is bad and I need to practice more, but I also was desesperate to editing it in Paint program so, I really have to check the article again (or as often as needed), and also I'll need someone speak english fruently (as you said). I also didn't know very well about Holmes's universe, if I had this idea I'd like to read some books to have more 'real' materials, but however, sadly is done :c And you're right about switching Lavi's and Kanda's roles. I have this conclusion in some attempts, but Lavi is so disappeared in this latest period and personally I think Kanda is another main characther (pritagonist) after Allen (is like the protagonista and his 'friend' who is a cool guy and they are Always arguing).
Your commet is much appreciated. I loved to read all your POV, and all then are important points that I wished someone criticize me constructively. Thank you pretty so much
Acho que sim, não me recordo da última vez que tentei esta loucura (acho que foi um dos trabalhos da Mirley, no segundo ano sobre a revista da época do Naturalismo? Aquela que fizemos o trabalho em forma de revista).
Mas obrigada, eu me esforcei muito e ralei até ficar em carne em viva! Vou tentar buscar esse programa, mas pensando se é uso para tablet ou em pc normal... mas enfim, vou buscar, quem sabe da próxima vez eu tenha mais facilidade. Além do mais, bem mais prático.
This is awesome! (ohmygosh glad I'm not the only person who basically stopped being human while working on my submission--no food, water, sleep. 0.o) It turned out great! I read the entire paper, by the way. It was really good. ^^ This must have taken an incredible amount of work; instead of just one picture, you've created 9! And they all look really nice, too! I mean, holy cow. Best of luck in the contest! You did a fantastic job!
Thank you pretty so much, mademoiselle. To be honest I can't able to tell how time I spent to do it, not exactly (maybe ten to eleven hours, maybe), but I'll never forget how I felt as zombie after I finished.
I'm glad to you like it and HOLY! DID YOU READ IT? I thought no one would read it It's much appreciated! Thank you!
p.s: Are you kidding me! Are you also did it?! It was terrible, huh? ;A; Like a hell?? Always looking at the clock if you're doing as quick as possible, if the time isn't running out...
It was my pleasure. Ahahaha yeah, I don't think this contest was very good for our health. :'D I hope you still don't have the zombie-like feeling.
Of course~ You put in the effort and it turned out great, so why not read it all? You even took the time to translate it. T^T That part of the project would have driven me insane if I were you. ;n; Translating is not my strong point.
LOL it really was. I started with three days still remaining, though, so I'm not sure if I experienced quite the same amount of stress you did. But seriously, I'm impressed at how well you did this. Especially under that pressure. (by the way, all of the plz accounts you used were absolutely adorable <3.)
