The Test by Nero749 The Test by Nero749
Excellent scene! Excellent show! :XD:

Maybe one day I'll run out of scenes I want to paint, but I can't see that happening any time soon ;)

I am irrationally in love with this piece. I know it's not as detailed in some ways as your others, but uuurrrghhh.
This scene. This silhouette. HIS SILHOUETTE IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
I debated for ages over making this my desktop wallpaper but.... in the end it just caused too many emotions. I write stories on that laptop. I'd never get anything done if I just kept seeing this and getting overwhelmed by feelings....

Yeah, I love it too, even though I am usually not up to simple art - as you might have noticed :XD: I mean it's not that I dislike the style, I just seem incapible of it :)

You seem capable of it to me. But I don't really know - you don't seem to do anything I would call sketch-y.

I dunno about easy. :)

This painting has the kind of dark moodiness I generally go to Amanda's site looking for. She's the Queen of sticking the character in the darkness and using tiny slivers of light (like on Sherlock's cheek and Mycroft's glove) to push the viewer. Leads to eyestrain, sure, but also much admiration. :D

So I saw this and did a double-take. This is hard to explain, but there's a certain meatiness that a painting can have. Like a solid heaviness there in the shape, texture, and some trick of properly used uniform colours. The result is like eating a treat with your brain. Sherlock, in this painting has that. If you'd gotten an eyelash off, it might have thrown the balance, but it's dead on. So, for me, this one is a real joy. Well done! :D

Oh yeah she is excellent with the darkness and the painty feeling I love! And it helps we have a lot of fandoms in common ;)

I'd love to take credit for all that, but if it turned out good it'susually a coincidence :XD:

Oh that scene... ´we´re in morgue, there´s only so much damage you can do´hihi

I sure as hell hope you don´t run out of scenes you want to paint!

I really like how you "flattened" out the colours and blurred Mycroft, putting the focus on his cheek(bones!) :)

Thanks! I just wanted the focus to be on the cigarette.
