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)

Three things:

3. I FREAKING LOVE YOU FOR DRAWING CUMBERBATCH AS SHERLOCK <3

Seriously though, season 2 needs to come sooner. 2012 is too far away still :P

Oh wow. I just absolutely love this. It's probably my favourite drawing I've seen yet of Benedict. It's so soulful. You're so accurate and the cross-hatching is spot-on awesome. And the highlighting is breathtaking. Excellent! Bravisima!

Jeez, watched the whole first season in a day. Couldn't stop pressing "Next Episode" on Netflix. Went to play episode 4 and... had a heart attack.

Do you happen to have a tumblr account? I'd love to reblog some of your stuff!
If not, would it be alright if I posted one or two of your drawings? I would add in a click-through link and credit you in the caption, of course.

the next series will be amazing, but i share your concern about thompson's episode. he's meant to get the last one too and that is not on!! i want gatiss to write the last episode again, the 3rd episode was amazing!

anyway, i adore your picture. esp his fluffy, messy hair = )
