I don't think Doyle intended Watson to be as dopey and dolt-ish as Bruce plays him. Certainly Edward Hardwicke, Jude Law, and Martin Freeman all make him assertive and able to put Holmes in his place at times, not just hero-worshippy and dopey. There is a bit more of the hero-worship with David Burke (the first Watson of the Brett series, though.)

To be fair, the original Watson of the stories can be very submissive, even referring to Holmes as his "master," but he certainly takes charge when Holmes' health is at stake.

You really got Holmes' face. Nice one! Love Rathbone and Bruce- some of my favourites.

YES! Yes you do! they are my favorites! although Watson is not very much like the books, he is SO Nigel Bruce, and Nigel Bruce is so cute that you just can't help but love him! And his relationship with Holmes is so adorable too! :D And of course, Holmes is super handsome! :blush:

Is Nigel anything like Dawson was in The Great Mouse Detective (if you've seen that), all kind and cuddly-like? If so, I'm sure he's super-adorable...! :aww:

What do we dooo, when we are bored? 
We pester Watson, of course!
*rofl*
Wow, this is so well done, your effort is definitively very visible! Especially Holmes is so recognisable, I knew instantly it had to be Basil! Particularily his trademark-nose is greatly represented! : D Watson still needs a tiny bit of work, I'd say (his right eye for example ; )), but he is well drawn overall and I like very much how you did his eyebrows! The poses and expressions are so perfect and fitting, too. :XD:
The colouring looks very beautiful and well-shaded, especially Holmes' face is top-notch! By the way, if I may give you a tip, I remarked it creates a nice effect if you shade the part of the eye that is directly under the lid a bit darker. :-) 
Long story short: GREAT! Funny and adorable --- Kudos!!! :iconlawooplz: :clap: :3

awww! you're so kind! I"ll keep all your tips in mind the next time I do something of this kind! :) I knew Bruce!Watson wasn't all that good, but I'd been drawing for like - hours - and I just gave up and went with what I had! :XD:

Ah, aw,, that's perfectly understandable, I also have these moments when I feel like jumping up and down with rage because the drawing refuses to look like I want and then I give up. :D But Basil is really well done, reallllllllllllllllllllllllllly well. Just to make that clear again. :thumbsup: : )
