Requiescat in pace by inklou Requiescat in pace by inklou
“Requiescat in pace, Sherlock Holmes. You’ve done well fighting for us in this life…your death shall be avenged.”

So this is heavily inspired by "Assassin's Creed Theme" by Jesper Kyd and Lorne Balfe. I never listened too closely to the Revelations OST until now, and man, all my feels ): It totally reminded me of Sherlock's death scene in Reichenbach. So terrifyingly beautiful.

Ezio/Assassin's Creed (c) Ubisoft

The more I look at this drawing, the more I'm drawn to it. Light strokes and a beautiful technique, alongside a really original idea, I feel that this artist has made The Reichenbachs Falls a whole new vision. The thought of Sherlock not dying alone and be giving the last Requiescat in pace, I feel this artist deserves more than words can say. I'm really at a loss over what I see. I could say it is beautiful, jamazing and breath-taking but it is so much more. There really is something else in this picture words can not describe. A feeling of peace and the last goodbye. Thank you, jamazing artist, for making this lovely picture to give us a hope that Sherlock died in peace.

oh my god…this is breathtaking! I saw it and felt peaceful and then BAM! That blue eye really popped out and I thought of the song "No Light, No Light" by Florence+The Machine and just how bright that eye is even as he dies…stunning, absolutely stunning.

Oh, merciful God. The fact that it's a dying Sherlock is enough, but then you had to make the Assassin's Creed Revelations reference, then about Ezio's death, and argh!

Too painful, yet too beautiful. Thank you.

I...this....I..... Ohmyword wow. This is so gorgeous - the two combined has made my day! I love how you've used the golden tones which really gives it an AC feel, but it's still totally recognisable as Sherlock!

This is glorious! You did a really good job capturing death in a picture. The blank-ness of his eyes to really show he isn't there any more. And the gentle caress of a friends hand who is saying good-bye.

This is ridiculously brilliant, all the implications about Sherlock being an assassin... And I myself would imagine the hand to be John's rather than Ezio's. ;w;
