Low Tar by naturalshocks Low Tar by naturalshocks
TUMBLR

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in BBC's Sherlock.

White coloured pencil and grey pastel pencil on A4 black pastel paper (Canson Mi-Teintes, the less textured side). I used a screencap from 2x01 A Scandal in Belgravia as a reference.

More Sherlock fan art HERE.

Gah, I love ALL of your black-and-white stuff! :love: Normally I don't :+fav: drawings without commenting on them, because I think that's lazy (just like using the :+fav: icon instead of typing out the word :lol:), but I'm afraid I'm going to have to make an exception in your case because otherwise I'd run out of compliments to bestow on you. :B

I should go and delete my version of this reference :B Yours is too perfect! I adore how the smoke looks realistic in comparison to my poor smoke. The atmosphere you've created with drawing just a few lines is mind-blowing :)

Hmm, I love how you almost can't see this one in the thumb. :heart: And I don't know why because that usually annoys the crap out of me. :lol:

Great job on catching his profile: it's minimalistic but still recognisably him. :heart:

The funny thing is, I just finished a piece very similar to this one. I was planning on posting it this weekend. Weird.

I really love all of your work, but I really really love white on black.

Eh, I've only done it once. I held a little sale on Tumblr a while ago and got rid of most of my black paper stuff. Is there anything particular you're interested in?

Aaaah this is absolutely beautiful! I love your white on black stuff. I drew the exact same scene once but in PS [link]

You complete the fandom with your fanart.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this screencap from A Scandal In Belgravia? I can't remember Sherlock smoking in 1x01.

Aw crap, the Tumblr link was wrong, too and I distinctly remember writing that one correctly. dA was being a bit bitchy last night, so I guess I ran into some bug? :confused: And I did not add the party emote to the description of this drawing. What the hell???

Anyway, sorry for the rant and thanks for noticing, lol! <3
