Sherlock by Elluwah Sherlock by Elluwah
Digital painting of Sherlock, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
All done in Photoshop CS5.

I am so, so happy to finally show you this.
It is definitely my toughest drawing to date, and despite almost giving up a few times I stuck through it (which is something I rarely do with art) and forced the motivation to complete it. And I am so pleased I did. :')

SHERLOCK. <3
I cannot express just how much I love this series.
I'll admit, I was late watching it. I wasn't somebody who watched it from the very beginning but as soon as I found out about it, I fell in love instantly. It was perfect. The cast, the acting, the small details that were so wonderfully put together, just everything. I love this show so much. :heart:

Looks great, like a photo! Congratulations! :clap:

I know you drew it, saw all the WIPs and I know you draw traditional too and that's wonderful, but that is why I don't want to do digital realism: it ends up looking kind of too much like a photo, somebody may end up calling bull. :(

Thank you so much! I'm so pleased it's finally done, haha. :)

I understand what you mean completely, it was a worry of mine when I first started this. But I thoroughly enjoy working with digital just as much as traditional now, and I won't let anyone's negative opinion (I've not had any yet, but just in case) get in the way of allowing me to draw what I want. :) Hopefully next I'll be able to do some more traditional, as I do miss it and feel I should return to it before I get too rusty with my normal drawing skills. =P
