Rift II by alicexz Rift II by alicexz
A younger Sherlock in his university days; I'd imagine he was cold and distant as always back then, but a bit softer and less suspicious of everyone's intentions. Totally awkward, ridiculously pale, too smart for his own good, and the biggest doe eyes you'll ever see. And lonely as hell, but pretending not to be. My poor baby! It's okay, you'll meet John later.

Please reblog instead of reposting!

Commissioned work for ~Fire-Chan9490, thank you so much for your patience. Information and status on my commissions located here: [link]



EDIT: Minor fix on the neck area!

This is so, so beautiful. Such a gorgeous man, I never get tired of looking at him, and you've done such an incredible job capturing his younger self. I love your description. It's so interesting to consider what his childhood and youth must have been like to shape him into the man he became. How sad I am this is not available for sale! :(

- And what's so uncommon about that? ;P

A very beautiful, very sensitively painted portrait. Thanks for sharing!

I love it! Wonderful shades of grey used in the background. I feel like it echoes his loneliness. He looks... approachable, for once. Like I could just reach my hand in and put it on his shoulder...

The description made me smile, btw. I totally agree :D
