The Dark Hours of the Night by Nero749 The Dark Hours of the Night by Nero749
What can I say? I just came across this scene and his expression was just incredibly heartbreaking, so I had to paint it... I'm weird like that ;)

I actually think this is my favourite Sherlock piece out of the ones I've done so far... :love:

Wow, that is just wow. I can't even describe it. It's amazing, absolutely beautiful. It looks so real. It's just so ugh, beautiful and so many other words that I can't seem to think of at the moment cause it's just that amazing.

This work and the Morning Light and Violinist are my favorites! Among the other ones that I like and admire as well. The fact that there's little light makes me think either he's remembering a case or he's thinking-completely absorbed in either one. Either way I love the blueness of his eyes-just wonderful :D

One of my favourite scenes. :) I ship Johnlock hard and imagine the shirt he wears in this scene to be one of John's old OD green Army shirts. The wrinkle detail is great as is your use of light and shadow.

I really like how you did the lighting. The colours that you chose, the orange and the blue, contrast nicely. One thing that I especially like is the skin. The neck is a great example of your skill with lighting. The front of the neck picks up the warm tones from the orange light, and the back of the neck has a blueish glow to it. It's like candlelight in the front, and moonlight in the back. It's really quite beautiful. :aww:

I noticed that in all your art, you really manage to capture expressions perfectly. You make people look alive with the way you paint the eyes. Awesome work! :D

What a lovely comment! Thank you! Eyes and lighting are probably the two things I'm best at, well eyes mainly ;) So great that you noticed that! Though I don't really plan lighting, I just try to think what would look best and with that image in mind I try (TRY) to get that on paper (albeit digital paper in this case).

You're welcome! Eyes are really fun to draw. It's easy to just work on those all the time and forget about practising the other parts. :D It seems like it'd be hard to imagine different kinds of lighting. I think I'd probably have to just try out a hundred different things to get it right. :XD:
