First look at the painted head sculpts of the upcoming Sherlock and John collector’s figures being produced by Big Chief Studios.
“What do you think Sherlock’s IQ is? And is Sherlock antisocial because of his intelligence?”
I personally find BBC Sherlock’s portrayal of “genius” inconsistent with real life. What Sherlock is portraying not so much a typical “genius” but a typical example of a man who has failed to emotionally mature (Explaining Sherlock’s Sherlockness). His intelligence might have compounded his maturation but so did a myriad of other factors.
In this meta I attempt to answer the questions and as usual there is not a straight forward answer. I am going to explore:
- Real life geniuses compared with Sherlock
- Why IQ tests cannot tell you very much about anyone’s intelligence
- Intelligence is unlikely to be the reason why Sherlock is Sherlock.
So you may already know that I have a minor Final Fantasy obsession. Well, I had to draw Hero John to go with my Boss Sherlock (
the only FF game where the boss and the hero end up having passionate sex at the end). :D He’s a white mage and a gun mage (whooo, I out nerded myself, I think)! Enjoy the detail shots, too!

Ready. Oh dear this was something… I’ve been working like hell to make money and the same time I really wanted to finish this….But now it ready…
I CAN REST.
And here is little close-up.
ps. Sorry for the boring ”good night & sweet dreams” text, I couldn’t work out anything better….
“Moffat was right about Doyle’s Irene not being feminist; she only managed to outwit the men who were harassing her and elope with the man she loved, thereby getting everything she wanted. I would rather see a disgraced Irene on her knees, needing Sherlock to rescue her- now that’s progressive!”
“Irene is my hero! Indirectly aiding terrorism, her willingness to work with a man who blows people up for fun and the way she seeks to control and abuse the people in her power, while trivializing it as “misbehaving”- now that’s female empowerment.”
