Because THIS GUY. Just. This guy. 
To all the people that convinced me to start watching BBC’s Sherlock: I love you. But gawd I hate you. But I love you. There is so much to love about this show. It’s the writing, the acting, the amazing video direction, the mind games, the music… it makes me feel all these feels. 

The past couple of weeks I’ve been fighting the urge to make this portrait because I had to do homework instead, but I always ended up doing neither. So I figured I’d just… get it out of my system, then. ^^ I worked from a bunch of really shitty reference photos I kind of puzzled together, so that was an extra challenge. 

Now I’ll just leave this here, wrap myself in my shock blanket and sleep for a couple of days because I only got about 4 hours in last night (which may or may not have been because of the season finale). 

[made in Adobe Photoshop CS5 in about… 7 hours? 8? Damn you and your cheekbones, Benedict Cumberbatch.]
