About the subject

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson of BBC series, Sherlock. Yep, my fascination for this series is snowballing :B
The funny thing is that magnificently skilled naturalshocks drew the same picture of Benedict as Sherlock a few days ago, whereas my had been done a bit earlier, but hadn't been posted at dA. Telepathy? :giggle:
Therefore it's dedicated to her :heart: :iconsherlockhugplz:

When I decided to draw some Sherlock fan art, I started googling for reference photos. As I don't have time to draw a decent pencil portrait, I made a decision about creating some white-on black drawings. I found these two separate pictures, but thought it'd be great to combine them into one artwork.
I wanted to create kinda sad, uneasy or even full of disappointment mood. People who watch the series know that Sherlock is quite difficult in any kind of relationships. Interpret it as you want ;)

About the drawing

:crazy:
Unusually, I have nothing to say about the drawing itself!
Actually, there is one thing: before someone points out John's head is too small in comparison to Sherlock's... he's in the background, Holmes is in the foreground.

This is so beautiful! and yes, the proportions are perfect. I hope you will consider submitting this (and some of your other "Sherlock" show portraits in the same style) to thankyoubbcsherlock on Tumblr - On Friday, September 5, 2014, flowers and the blog URL will be sent to the show as a gift of appreciation for all the pleasure "Sherlock" has brought so many of us. Submissions will also, as I understand it, continue to be added to the blog after that.

It looks gorgeous. The way their emotion shows even through all of the darkness and the whole technique is of course brilliant.
