Not a fairytales fan by Beginte Not a fairytales fan by Beginte
I'm creatively constipated. And, adequately enough, the result is crap =p Or at least, not what I was hoping and going for, sigh :faint: Still, first time doing this kind of colour scheme... it was hard for me and took long to pick the right shades.

Anyway, my first BBC "Sherlock" work - little Sherlock, all tucked in, and Mycroft reading him his bedtime story :) Of course, no fairytales, but Dame Agatha Christie :D

Mycroft was a pain to draw as a late-late teen, at some point I actually made him look like Moriarty! (Creepy, though interesting, sort of like in Peter Pan Cpt Hook is always played by the same actor as Mr Darling - any of you picked up on that?)

Quote from Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None".

Comments are loved :D

Aww, thank you! :D I just adore the relationship between Sherlock and Mycroft, I like to think they were very close in childhood, for some reason I get that impression :)

You are welcome. I adore it too. <3 I also think they were close in their childhood - it must be hard to be so different from all other people and I think Mycroft was Sherlock's protector - because not like Sherlock he knows when to shut up and not to make people angry with the true. I think S got beat up often and M protected him and blackmailed his torturer. ^^ ps: btw are you on tumblr?

Beginte Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, exactly, I think so too, Mycroft was Sherlock's protector and got attached to the role, while Sherlock eventually grew up... Oh, yes, Sherlock was like a walking 'beat me up' sign when at school, I'm sure of it... Nope, though for the last couple of months I've been walking around the idea to get myself on tumblr, problem is it's very time consuming, and I don't have that much of it... but eventually I'll probably try :)

Awwh I think that Sherlock also needs nowadays - as a grown-up - Mycrofts protection - but these days he simply doesn't want to believe that he needs to be protected -I think he sees that as a sign of weakness. Awwh I would love to see you on tumblr. Really. <3

Exactly :) I imagine that as a kid he accepted Mycroft's help and caring, and liked it, but now he wants to prove he's completely self-sufficient. Oh, maybe one day... I like browsing tmblr every now and then, it's a fun place :)

But I have a question. Where does the 'Sherlock wanted to be a pirate' thing come from?:confused:
You're not the first to do it and I'd really like to know where it began.
