221B Baker Street . As I am a Sherlock Holmes fan, it took but a minute to decide to create something from the work of Conan Doyle. This particular vignette displays Sherlock and Watson lounging in their quarters on Baker St. I don't know how accurate the architecture is to that of the book's, but just thought I'd take a stab at it! My rendition does give them (Sherlock and Watson) a wealthier look then I believe they would have had in the book, but I liked my original design and stuck with it. (A few bits and pieces of this vig were inspired by Paul Vermeesch's Lego: "Einstein's Study"). Once again my apologies for the small yellow text in the bottom right hand corner of the pictures. Please don't hesitate to comment and rate! . The Characters: Sherlock and Watson. Watson's cigar. I don't know if Watson actually smoked cigars, but I thought it added a cool touch. The table. The items on the table from left to right: A wine glass, Sherlock's hat, and a revolver. The fireplace. This part of the vig took some time to build. I am happy with the structure of the actual fireplace, but I think I could have done the "fire" in it better. I was experimenting, attempting to create a good blaze without using the old Lego flame pieces. Logs in the fender. A decorative sword. The shovel and poker (for the fire). Holmes chair. Sherlock's "red leather armchair" is one of my favorite parts of the entire vignette. It happened to be the first item I built for this creation. I love how it turned out. The book shelf and books. The rat and magnifying glass. The rat I added to this creation to help defeat the "aristocratic element" I mentioned in the intro. The magnifying glass was a constant tool of Holmes's, and it helps portray mystery. The skull. I debated for a little while whether it was advisable or not to add this item, in the end (obviously) I decided it was. The skull helps (like the magnifying glass) to portray mystery, it is also sometimes representative of the medical field, which is what Watson's profession was in. Here is a photo of the room stripped bare of furniture. The carpet and floor boards. This is another one of my favorite parts. More then once I had to rip out most of the floor and relay it to make it fit with the carpet, the annoying part was maintaining the design. The "Artistic lighting shot". Watson (mini-fig). Sherlock with his magnifying glass (mini-fig).
