Basic info

:pointr: size: A4
:pointr: media: black paper, regular eraser, white and grey watercolour pencil of Koh-I-Noor, a white CretaColor pastel pencil
:pointr: time: 2,5h
:pointr: reference photo: sc.aithine.org/sherlock/201/15…

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 :noes:
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... :iconlegaspplz: Hope it looks fine now.

Świetne. Patrząc na twoje prace ma się zwyczajnie ochotę złapać za ołówek i rysować, rysować, rysować. Mogę się założyć, że zaraz to zrobię. Zapewne kiedy dojdę do poziomu na którym ty teraz tworzysz swoje prace minie wiek bądź dwa ale widocznie ty masz jakiś dar od Boga czy coś takiego. Zapewne będę często wracać :3. I jeszcze powtórzę : świetne.
