Sherlock II by Elluwah Sherlock II by Elluwah
As my little way of celebrating Benedict Cumberbatch's birthday today, I decided to do another Sherlock painting this morning! I was determined to get it done within the day and uploaded, and I'm very pleased I managed it. :)

Photoshop CS5, 4 hours.

Dear Elluwah:

This is Indy. Greetings from Canada!! I hope this finds you and yours well.

Due to loss of access to my old account, I find I have to re-fave three pages of art. Yet, I do this happily for many of the pieces are just sooo good, including this.

By the by, did you ever solve the mystery of Benedict's face?

Keep up the good work, kiddo!!!


Believing in Sherlock Holmes always,

Indy.

Dear Elluwah:

This is Indy. Greetings from Canada!! I hope this finds you and yours well.

You know, if it wasn't for the fact that my heart is as strong as an ox right now, they'd have put me in a nice box and held services for you have just NAILED him!!!! Both you and Nero549 are out to get me, and you're both using dear Benedict as your weapon. Yet, I'm joking for I will die with a smile on my face that only my fellow Cumberbitches will understand.

Keep up the good work, kiddo!!! You know where this is going!!

Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

Hello Indy! Apologies for the late reply, I've not been on deviantART in a while.
I'm very happy you like this drawing! Benedict is a difficult person to draw, hence why I do not draw him as often as I would like, but in the future I am definitely going to be doing more pictures in the hope that each time I can improve and feel more comfortable with it just a little bit more. Anyway, thank you for your kind words! :la:

Dear Elluwah:

This is Indy. Greetings for the New Year from Canada!! I hope this finds you and yours well.

That seems to be the same complaint when it comes to Benedict--"He's too hard to draw!" There was an artist from France who was having the same problem and I, a non artist, told her this: "Look, you've got a great black and white photo of David Bowie on your page. Now, you get a really great quality photo of Benedict and study their cheekbones for a while and practice drawing their cheekbones."

This is is coming from a person who has never gotten past the stick man stage of drawing.

I suggest the same for you. In your case, it doesn't necessarily have to be Bowie, but anyone else (besides Benedict) who has those same high cheekbones. Practice drawing them. You'll soon solve the mystery of Benedict's face. This goes for any and all artists who have a hard time with him.

I hope this helps!!!


Sincerely yours always,

Indy.
