Fight our desires by lily-fox Fight our desires by lily-fox
So, I still haven't seen any of the second season of Sherlock, which, I know, I know. But I already love Lara Pulver as Irene Adler, even with her bizarre coif.

I feel like I haven't done anything in a hella long time that required any real pencil finesse. It's more fun than I remember. You know how I love drawing hair, and Irene's is so perfect. I should have bitten the bullet and done her whole (stolen) coat and Sherlock's shirt, but honestly, I don't have a super steady hand for big planes of texture, so.

This was sexy. I feel like I could watch Sherlock collapse in a drugged haze all day long. Don't think less of me.

If you still haven't watched season 2, you need to. I love That Woman, Irene Adler. The very first glimpse we get of her/that situation is amazing.

Also, I am In Love with your whole gallery.

This is such a lovely picture. Just incandescently gorgeous, a perfect illustration of that scene (which I can and do watch repeatedly), the tense connection between Sherlock and Irene. <3 <3 <3

"As a half awakened volcano
My heart slowly pounds
The tepid lava of your eyes
Flow into my sick veins
I think so often of you
That my reason capsizes it
As blue boats would make
And even the biggest ships"
(According to Etienne Roda-Gil, France)
This one is my dream in paint. Thank you a lot.

PBS.org no excuse, watch all 3 eps, and if you've ever read the stories you know what happens in season 3

This is absolutely amazing. Your precision with the pencil is incredible. Her hair is perfect. And I really like how the details fade away from there. It's a great composition and the colors and textures you use really turn it into an interesting piece. :heart:

Hehe, I concur...Sherlock is FAR too sexy the what should be legal when he's in his drugged-out state of mind. It's strange. The after-effects are also quite amusing ^.^ I love the detail of this piece, ESPECIALLY the hair of both Irene and Sherlock, and the amazing smirk that tugs at Irene's perfectly painted lips...very seductive, VERY Irene :giggle: Love it! Faved!

And I STILL haven't seen the episode. I know he hallucinates a scene, right? Does he even get to fool around with Irene in his hallucination? Poor Sherlock. Gets roofied, doesn't even get laid.

I can't BELIEVE you haven't seen the episode and you captured it so well here! Yes, he does get a hallucination during the episode. And no, no foolin' around in his drugged-out state...it's even better then that, trust me ^.^ Though the way that you described it hilARious!
