Hang on!...That's not a troll!!!

So, since he did travel in a tiny black box with a troll/ogre, I decided to pop Watson into this project. I guess having tea and biscuits across the pond, with a big, burly, bitter dude will at least qualify him as Honorary Troll Member.
He was an absolute joy to paint. I took inspiration from the old BBC series, with Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes and Edward Hardwicke as Watson. They are still my favorite duo <3.  Also, it gave me the perfect excuse to rewatch the show 🙂

Thank you so so much @avernos for letting me paint this lil guy. Loved every minute of it <3

I decided he was standing in some flowery english field. Perfect excuse to try those ‘flowers’ I just bought. They were a lil’ stark right out of the box, so I added some wash to the base and some drybrushing to the top. Think it made it blend better into the ground.
