Rift by alicexz Rift by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE

Portrait of a younger Sherlock Holmes, in his university years. Cold and distant already, but a bit sad, too... Put this on my sketchblog a week or so ago and people seemed to like it, so I cleaned it up a bit and added some simple colors! Reference from here.

I just started watching this series, and I gotta say, I like this version of Sherlock better than any other I've seen so far. The only things they could do better is stop all the gay references and using Jesus' name as a cuss. Sherlock is otherwise, a masterpiece.

He looks really fresh faced here and very pretty. I love the simplicity of the shading on his face and the details of the brush strokes really set it off.
