You Should See Me in a Crown by Nero749 You Should See Me in a Crown by Nero749
How will they ever find a villain as goddamn scary as Andrew Scott's Moriarty? That'll be the biggest challenge for the the third series, definitely :devilish:

The jacket took the most time... Why oh why did I want that pattern on it? I should have people around me who stop me when I start something insane like that...

That's probably why they had the ending that they did...because there will never be a villain as scary/creepy as Moriarty! ...except maybe that taxi driver, but he's dead. :lol:

His last line in the show gives me chills! Didja miss me? Brrr... :XD:

I know! I think they came close this series but Moriarty is the best!

Hehe! I added some royal patterns he didn't have in the show but thought would suit his ambitions.

First off: thanks! But could you give me a link to wear you saw it, as I wasn't aware it's on there :)

Sure! It's over on Adagio's Blends Page as part of a promotion. You can hack the page and link your own/your favorite blends if you can figure it out. :)
Have you heard anything about the Sherlock teas someone in the fandom's made? Your image was first used as the site's backdrop for them during Sherlock Holmes week. I think Adagio must really love your work! :D

I had no idea! But they might have asked me and I've just forgotten, I get asked that a lot - if people can use my work as a background - so I lose track :)
But now I finally know where all those teas came from! I kept wondering why they came across my tumblr dashboard :P

I keep coming back here and try to find the words to convey my appreciation for this piece, but well, I give up: afldlkjkjhsfhslkjh

It's scary and beautiful, part abstract, part realistic, it's green and black and just so vibrant and delicious.

And I totally agree about Andrew Scott. His Moriarty could be so composed one moment and then suddenly become totally unhinged the next. You've captured that calm before the storm here beautifully.

I do that a lot too... and often then forget to comment at all LOL Yeah, the background just came together really nicely :) And did a lot for the eerie look of this. But Andrew Scott does most of it! I mean he is just incredible! Like you said, that switching between seemingly composed to utterly insane... there aren't a lot of actors who can get away with that :O
