and another thing.  
Sherlock art! because I needed an excuse to stare at Benedict Cumberbatch for several days, obviously.

title: classical
rating: pg-13
pairing: gen (vaguely implied sherlock/john)
notes: this idea started in 2010, when i asked for prompts and was given Sherlock & 'violin' and sketched this - which i recently rediscovered and decided that clearly there needed to be more shirtless!violin-playing!Sherlock in my life. and then it needed a background and john wandered in wearing only a bedsheet?

Mm-hm, yes please! Very tender and early morning, and just a little bit foxy! I'm making appreciative noises at the screen.

I like how you've done Sherlock's face, and how soft and relaxed, off his guard, he is. And I just like John being there, the implications it gives. Yes yes. :D

Love this! I love the idea of what came before and what comes next and Sherlock playing for John. You did a great job!

This is absolutely lovely. The color and light are wonderful! I imagine they just woke up after an extremely happy night, and Sherlock had to get up and play to express just how good it was for him. :-)

I love this interpretation. Oh yes.

This is beautiful. I love the lightness it holds, so peaceful and calm. And how you've positioned Sherlock and John. Very nice :)

It is lovely, but having been a violinist, a few things caught my attention: his bow grip is wrong and the flat of his hand should not be pressing against the violin. Also, the bow should never go across the fingerboard, only over the gap between the fingerboard and the bridge. Other than that, it's beautiful! :) Hope you don't mind my nitpicking.

I think that this is a very beautiful picture. I love the way that he and the violin are painted and i love the fact that John is in the background obvioulsy looking and listening intently.

If I have one crit, ( and it is only a small one!), I would have done Sherlock's hair a little bit darker. However I still think is lovely and captures Sherlock so well.
