UUUUUUM beautiful! Then again, he's a beautiful inspiration :giggle: Eeeeeh, but enough of my fangirling...this is amazing! I love the vibrant blue tones of the piece (my fave colour!!) and I adore the city skyline...very detailed in a simple way, if that makes any sense. Plus, you got the eyes down PAT...the intense stare is just perfect. Love it! Faved!

I agree, Sherlock/Benedict has no right to be so gorgeous :'D
Thanks so much! Though I have to say it mostly looks blue here because of the lighting I photographed it in ^^" Thank you for your detailed comment, I appreciate it :'D :hug:

THIS. IS. BEAUTIFUL. How you ever managed to get that much detail out of a stencil is a mystery to me

Funny story, I actually cheated a bit for that xD The face and city skyline are stencils, but most of the hair and the jacket were painted on afterwards. But anyways, thank you! :meow:
