Benedict Cumberbatch portrait in purple pencil with some added tone in Photoshop.

I am so looking forward to Season 3 of "Sherlock."

I must say that your style is mindblowing! As a drawer i have to concede that his face is simply the biggest inspiration I've come across in recent years. Had a go at drawing him a few times and each and every time it feels like im capturing a completely different person. He has such an expressive face. Maybe you'd like to take a peek? [link] Again, great work, congrants!

Sure, I took a peek. And then I noticed this same comment, copied/pasted on other artwork. And then I noticed that you didn't bother to fave my piece. Conclusion: pointless comment designed to get me to look at your stuff.

Yeah, I admit. Not very elegant way, but I don't consider it pointless. Wasn't done by a machine to promote something that I'm making money from. Just an attempt to get a critique from a couple of people whose talent I admire. Sorry to bother you and forgetting to fav your piece.

A great piece on a fantastic character and a brilliant series!
hey, howabout another on Dr Watson/Martin Freeman? mayhaps a montage? poster?

**SPOILER ALERT**


..or as *maybe* as the series is hinting, the endearing Molly Hooper?

Thank you, sir--much appreciated!

Yes, I have thought about trying one of Watson, but hadn't considered Molly.... Hmmm...could be fun and she certainly deserves some attention, doesn't she? :nod:

Wow, this is gorgeous! I love sketchy things like this that capture a ton of detail while still having that half finished look. :la:

Just plain old pencil (in this case, a colored pencil) on sketchbook paper.
