(Couldn't think of a good title adfdf) Practicing doing portraits with pastels. Which is still really hard on A4-sized paper.

I think it's a very good title, because he is elegant most of the time :) I love it, the intense colours and the anle are great. And his eyes are gorgeous! :D

Thank you! :D I was mostly thinking of how he describes certain crimes as 'elegant,' and he's kindof wearing one of those expressions, so... xD But elegance describes the man, too ♥

Ooh, didn't think of that - it works too, especially since it looks like he's at a crime scene :)

YES YES I DID SEE IT ON TUMBLR
I must've missed your original post, because I-don't-know-when, someone reblogged from who-knows-where and I just came across it and I was all HEY LOOK A PRETTY SHERLOCK
I DIDN'T PAY ATTENTION TO WHO IT WAS ORIGINALLY FROM AND I DIDN'T GIVE IT MUCH MORE THOUGHT UNTIL I CAME BY AND REALIZED THAT YOU HAD DRAWN IT

BAHA YES THEY PROBABLY ARE SAYING NICE THINGS
