Once upon a past by Beginte Once upon a past by Beginte
I sometimes have the thought about people we know - have we seen each other in the past? Before we knew them, have we been at the same place at the same time as they, not noticing them, because we didn't know them yet? For some reason, that idea fascinates me and seems to me appealingly plausible :)

So here we have Sherlock, Jim, Irene and John, in the past, as children, all happening to cross the very same spot at the same time, not knowing who they will all be to each other in the future.

It took me about 10 hours to finish, and I'm rather pleased with the effect :D I especially like how Jim and Irene worked out. And yes, the apple in Jim's hand is one of the reasons why I came up with this pic in the first place :D

I hope you like it! Comments are loved :D

Sherlock makes me kind of sad, he just kind of lonely and isolated. It's even sadder because his future best and only real friend is right there but they don't know each other yet. It would've been even more interesting if Molly, Lestrade and Mary were there too.

This is pretty impressive, love the concept behind it! I also like the fact that you've dressed them in fairly normal clothes. Majority of Kidlock I see, people tend to dress them in some what old fashioned clothes which I never understand... Great work <3

I just adore this piece so much!!!! Beautiful artwork, and I love the way you captured the characters!! But my favourite is the idea behind the piece - that they've all crossed paths before and never noticed, that they're all linked together, these people who need each other. That's long been my headcanon - that they've all seen each other in passing long before the time they met. To see this picture just made me incredibly happy!! I love all your work, and this was so so beautiful!!!! :heart: stunning

Amazing! I really love that idea as well - and they all came out brilliantly. I can just imagine them as children - Sherlock very studious and withdrawn. And John is probably the most 'normal'. For some reason, I think Irene looks the oldest, or rather looks like she'd act older than her age. And Jim is just perfect - he's sort of grumpy and even back then, contemptuous of everyone around him. xD
Beautiful lighting as well, and I love how Sherlock's the clearest in the shade, and how all the other children are sort of fading away like memories.

Awww, thank you! :hug: Haha, oh, yes, John is always the most normal out of the four. Well, she was supposed to be the youngest - that's what I get for trying =p But yeah, she's also supposed to act older than she is. Aww, thanks, I was trying to get that look on Jim! Thanks for you sweet comment :D

I know none of them know each other yet, but I think if one of them did know that they'd all meet in the future, it'd be Irene. I don't know, it's just something about her face, like she knows but is just going to carry on with the lollypop xD

The concept is great because it makes so much sense that all of them would have nothing to join them at that point and that a set of circumstances would join them all later in life. Great job, 10 hours well spent!! :)

It's an amazing idea I always think about, everyone you meet could return some day, be the most important person in your world, a random person you pass on the street, a face in the crowd, could some day be a face you have memorized, cherish forever.
That got sentimental, but I love the picture, them in their innocence (even if Jim looks still a bit devious...) before they were the great names of the present.
