About the subject
Another portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes. Another one done in white-on-black style. One more to come in the future. I wish I could draw Irene Adler, James Moriarty and John Waston this year, but I'm afraid I'll lack time. I know what I'm saying. This drawing is my newest and was finished one month ago In the series Sherlock tries to quit smoking [he even uses 3 anti-smoking patches at the same time], but after he *spoiler* discovers Irene's death, he smokes the cigarette his brother Mycroft has given to him. Later it is revealed that Irene faked her murder *end of the spoiler*.
About the drawing
I had to refine the damn smoke for a thousand times! It looked artificial, there was too much of it, or it was too bright... Hope it looks fine now.
