A Three Patch Problem by naturalshocks A Three Patch Problem by naturalshocks

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in BBC's Sherlock.

1x01 A Study in Pink

Graphite pencils in Moleskine sketchbook.

Sorry for the recent Sherlock spam. It's just that I had 17 months of undrawn fan art bottled up inside me and series 2 blew the cap off. I'll get back to my aliens eventually.

May I please use this for a school project? I just have to list pictures that show emotion, and I was thinking of categorizing this as "Pensive/Meditative". Either way, please let me know so I know whether or not to use it.

Tell me about it. Now I feel a tiny bit better seeing that they're starting to work on the set. Hopefully, now that 2013 is actually here it feel so long.

I was very glad when I looked through my long-abandoned inbox, to discover lots of Sherlock art from you! You make every screencap have a beautiful mood and such a sense of a frozen moment in time.

Ack I'm getting poetic here. But yes...

BRING IT ON! :D

Heyyyyy. Another one! And no, I don't mind at all :heart:

I really enjoy the mix of techniques and styles you've been using lately, by the way. I never would have guessed a crosshatched technique could go along with realism. This makes me want to try different techniques too.
Have you ever tried pointilism before? I wouldn't be surprised if you do great with any drawing style you try.

Thank you! 8D I really love the cross-hatching, if I may say so myself. It makes the overall look much more interesting.

Uh, I think the last time I did pointillism was when I was 13. But that is a great idea, perhaps I could incorporate it in my realism drawings, like I did with the cross-hatch. :plotting:

Could this man be anymore beautiful? And could your drawings be anymore realistic? No. No to both.

Hmmm...I suppose that is true. I mean, I don't think my ovaries could handle it if Benedict became more beautiful you know?
But it was a compliment to your artistic skill. I hope you didn't misunderstand. D:

Loove this. In the books Holmes actually has "Three pipe problems" and the second he finishes smoking the third pipe, he jumps up with the solution. ^_^
