Benedict of Baker Street by Girl-on-the-Moon Benedict of Baker Street by Girl-on-the-Moon
OH SHERLOCK HOW I LOVE THEE.
This is not a recent revelation, but I thought it was time to express my love of the show (and Mr. Cumberbatch) in the form of a portrait.

Can't wait for the next series! Except Stephen Thompson's episode.
(Note from the future: OMG I WAS WRONG ABOUT THOMPSON. NICELY DONE SIR. I AM SO SORRY.)

About three hours of work, 4B pencil on white paper, highlights and colour effects done in Photoshop. Tutorial here: fav.me/d36e1zu (What's not covered in the tutorial is the gradient map I applied, which gives it the spiffy colours. That's just in Image>Adjustments>Gradient Map)

I love the texture of the shadows and the brightness of the face. ;)
