I’ve been wanting to make something for Red Pants Monday for a very, very long time. I’m glad I finally got the time to do it.
This started off as a sketch for a friend, to illustrate a scene from a college AU we’ve been chatting about for the past couple of days.

He doesn’t shy away because he knows everything else that Holmes is.
Oh, and because it’s a little tricky to see, here’s Watson’s notes.
… yeah. That totally is a drawing of a pelvis. I’m so unapologetically immature.
Anyway, I’ll leave you with a little .gif of the entire process:
