Posh, my friends. Simply posh.

It was rare for her to be up after ten at night, and she had invariably breakfasted and gone out before I rose in the morning. Sometimes she spent her day in her laboratory, sometimes in the library, and occasionally in long excursions, which appeared to take her into the wildest portions of the Everfree. Nothing could exceed her energy when the working fit was upon her; but now and again a reaction would seize her, and for days on end she would lie upon the sofa in the sitting-room, hardly uttering a word or moving a muscle from morning to night except to turn the pages of the book she was reading."

--Dr. Spike Watson LLD, "A Study in Violet"

Watercolor on Canson cold press paper. Finished on 1/15/13 (finally caught up to this year).

I'm guessing it's either Spike's mustache, or Stalin's draconic nature.

There's so much rich texture on every single surface, and you did a fine job of expanding on Spike's anatomy without deviating much from his comparatively basic character design. Terrific work!
