Holidays? by Winxhelina Holidays? by Winxhelina
"Sherlock." the elder Holmes brothers warning tone could be heard from behind " You can't have your plans ruined by something as-"
"He won't notice it anyways." he cut his brother off, looking at the words of apology he had left on the window:"By the time he wakes up it will have faded" he justified. 
"And yet you do want him to notice." Mycroft pointed out. 
Sherlock was about to wipe the window clean. He did realise it was a stupid sentiment, but then if he'd wipe the words off, that would be like admitting defeat, so he decided against it. It had already mostly faded anyways. 
"We could have Christmas dinner together if you'd like." Mycroft suggested.
"You're just looking for an excuse to end your diet early." Sherlock replied dryly, turning on his his making his way down the street. 

EDIT: So sweet, brilliant ~nastjastarkdrew a sequel to this:
<da:thumb id="423052668">
GO CHECK THAT THING OUT IT'S AMAZING. Way better than anything I could ever do! Really, go see it, comment it, give her all the love you got!

Could this be? An actual art piece? A decent one? Well not that decent, but a halfway there. I asked the lovely ~nastjastark if she could draw the story a sequel, because I really wanted one and she was doing commissions and she agreed and now I feel scared as this thing is nowhere near good enough. I'll let her decide if she wants to draw something related to it. 
I wanted to do this as a Christmas piece, but I admit being slightly late. It was done yesterday & put it in my stash, but I didn't want to upload it before I was done with the descripton. 
Not sure if the story was any good, but yes if you lookclosely it says "I'm sorry" on the window. Cheesy. I know
Used pencils, markers and watercolours. Tried perspective, but what is perspective? I really suck at it. I must forever stay in the world of abstract forever it seems. I like Sherlock's face, several other things I don't like it, but I think I like it in general. I wanted to colour the cobblestones one by one by pencil, but then I realized that I would probably commit suicide halfway through. 
Honour me with your comments I please
Merry Late Christmas!

Hey, this is very very good! I always found it difficult to work with mixed media, but youre doing it amazingly well!
I love how you used the watercolours for the background, ad how you did the "Im sorry"-writing on the window.

As for the perspective - perspective is a nasty little thing, I tell you. I always have difficulties with it, and the angle you chose is not an easy one, so kudos to you for doing so well! :D Actually it reminds me of a street in my hometown.

The characters are perfectly recognisable, and the story behin it is sooo so sweet!

Instant fave. :heart;

Thank you! Really? I did mixed media, because I was feeling lazy.
Thank you. 
PERSPECTIVE IS AWFUL; but thank you. Yee. It might look a bit like some bit in Tallinn too I think. 

Thank you! I stole the story idea from you! :D

You did? I dont really remember that story...that being said, I talk a lot and tend to forget half of it in a heartbeat. XD
Winxhelina Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
No I meant the idea of adding a small story there. 
SweetLittleVampire Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
