Basil and the Great Train Robbery Sketches by LooneyArtist Basil and the Great Train Robbery Sketches by LooneyArtist
Drawn from the comic book featured here: greatmousedetective.webs.com/i… titled "The Great Train Robbery" or "The Rat Train"(for some reason the pages aren't showing up for me, I don't know if it's just me or what, but it's probably just me, it's worked every other time)

 I drew these over the course of this week. The two I did on the right and the one I did on the bottom left I did, one for each time we went to CarMax, because we kept having issues getting our truck. Until my mom decided to get the truck herself, and thus we drove to the CarMax in San Antonio where the truck we wanted was there and that's when I drew the Basil on the bottom right, and the coolest thing about it, was that the guy that was working with us recognized him :aww: I may draw more from this comic, I must admit it's one of my favorites, with Safe-Crakers being the second one. 

The comic book versions of Basil, I find really entertaining and amusing to draw. There's more expressions and more amusing classic quotes from him. But there's mainly the expressions, and various sty-lings of the comic artist. Granted, there was some colors wrong and some parts of his face didn't look right, but hey that's what makes a style it's own. Even if it means breaking a few rules, heck, I broke them just now with his colors :XD: But you can only do so much with Sharpies and BIC markers ^^; And other artists have bend the rules, but that's okay, we still can tell it's Basil, and isn't it neat to see him in different styles now and then? Different scenarios, wardrobes, worlds even, and time periods :XD:::XD: OF COURSE IT IS! Even if it is a wee-OOC, but it's still harmless fun and appreciation nonetheless, or at least I hope it is...:XD:

GAH! Sorry didn't mean for this to be so long :XD: I haven't uploaded anything for awhile, nor updated anything on my journal so I've got A LOT to say I guess :XD: 

I hope you enjoy, expect more soon my friends :D

Basil of Bakerstreet (C) Disney/Eve Titus

It's not the pages that are down, it's the damn bandwidth running out and breaking all of the photo links again! :roll: That Photobucket account runs out of bandwidth at lightning speed. It just reset back to zero on October 19th, so, for a short amount of time, all of the photos were working at my fansite. Once again, the bandwidth exceeded, so that's why you're getting broken photos. I am in the process of going through each web page with direct-linked photos and changing their URL's to my Flickr account, one I never used but have had for awhile.

I am really sorry for any inconvenience I have caused. It's a huge embarrassment! :(

Oh no your fine, I totally understand shit just happens for no apparent reason, or for any GOOD reason. It's not your fault at all, nor has it caused any inconvenience's I understand, and I wish you luck in the process of getting things back up, for I'm sure it's not a fun task.

I thought it was just me since I've actually been having these issues for some time with other pictures, and not just on your site, thus I thought it was just my computer or internet being on the fritz. ^^; For awhile the page was down for me, I know for sure it was me because I couldn't even get back on deviantART after I uploaded the picture, but once I re-loaded the site, it showed up the whole bandwidth thing.

Thanks so much! :hug: This has just been going on for months and it's ridiculous. That Photobucket account is my oldest one, so it's probably why the bandwidth shoots up the fastest. There are over 1,000 direct links, so I need to balance them out by linking at other accounts. I long to have one big account for photo storage and the capacity unlimited!

Same here! This comp I'm on is decent, works the best, but I've gotten broken links a lot! For awhile my wifi in my own home went out. I had to reset it in everything. Computers, we need them, but we don't need the stress! :faint:

By the way, these are wonderful drawings! :D That train robbery comic was a challenge to translate, but the results were so rewarding! :)

No problem, and I'm afraid my PC of about..two years or three maybe, is almost to it's final days. Aside from the internet complications at times, my laptop can't be unplugged for more then a minute or else it goes dead. Which means I can't take it to the living room and scan pictures without having to bring the charger with it, which sorta defeats the purpose of having a laptop, but I'm grateful it still works now and it keeps working until I can get a new one. Aside from the batteries and chargers, it's a great laptop, though nonetheless. I couldn't agree more, I think that goes with electronics and technology in general. 

And thanks :hug: I'm glad you like them, I plan on drawing more from this comic and others:D, they never cease to amuse me, despite already reading them several times over and over :XD: And great practice for drawing Basil! They definitely made the trip to San Antonio more enjoyable for me. :XD: I can imagine it being a bit of a challenge, for I have to do the same for my French class, translating newspaper articles into English, though challenging a good exercise for learning a language.

My laptop is actually a savior of mine ever since I upgraded my cell to an iPhone 4. I've never used iTunes, and I can't install it on my desktop Dell. It won't work. Whenever I want to do updates with anything media-wise, I have to sync my iPhone to my laptop since I can get iTunes to work. So far, I like how the iPhone takes night photos and video. I still use my regular camera for pictures, but I switch to my phone sometimes. Hope you can get your laptop situation fixed soon!

You're welcome! :) The comics are possibly my favorite of anything outside of TGMD film. This is mainly because we get treated to further adventures with the characters. I'll admit it's a pain translating the pages and remaking the text to English, but it's so worth it! :D
