Vitruvian Sherlock - complete with scarf
In Song of Sherlock, I wrote the following description of Sherlock, from John’s perspective:
“I slip my hands into his shirt, peeling it back over his shoulders, dropping it to the floor beside the sofa. His torso is exquisite. I remember being stunned the first time I saw Sherlock without a shirt. I had been expecting to see ribs, perhaps a slightly sunken sternum, and jutting vertebrae. Instead, although he is very slender, Sherlock is corded with strong muscle, and his body is a work of art, all sleek muscle and alabaster. Sherlock is like a flesh-and-blood version of Vitruvian Man.”
Ever since I’ve itched to create a Vitruvian Man version of Sherlock. Here he is. Photomanipulation done in Photoshop, original drawing by Leonardo da Vinci, of course.
