Number Systems by naturalshocks Number Systems by naturalshocks
TUMBLR POST

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson in BBC's Sherlock. I used screencaps from 1x02 The Blind Banker as references.

Graphite pencils, black coloured pencil, acrylic paint, fineliners, white gel pen and black marker on A4 Canson Illustration.

More Sherlock fan art HERE.

Please don't repost.

What could I say that you haven't already heard thousand of times?... Oh well, I'll stick to the simple.
Your work is geogous as always, and I really like the composition and colour choice for this serie^^ it really fits each episode. Here's an other reason to be sad Sherlock has only 6 episodes so far ;p
:love:

I-I-I-I cannot summon the ability to write an intelligent comment right now. I'm too much amazed. Sorry 'bout that.

THIS. This is marvellous, one of the best illustrations I've ever seen. I. Uh. I'd really like to buy this, if it's possible. Maybe not now, because ahah, I can barely pay the bills, but. Uh. Or maybe, I don't know, steal from you a good scan?

My godddddd. Perfectionnnnnn.

Ahhh, bb! You flatter me! <3 Thank you so much for your kind words. :tighthug:

QUESTION: would it be okay if I sent you a raw scan, so you could twiddle with the curves and stuff yourself? I tried to repaint the yellow, but it still looks a bit dirty because of all the pencil dust and tiny brush hairs, but I don't think I have the time to make it look perfect. D: It looks okay irl, but yeah, the scan is a bit rubbish, but you're way better at digital stuff than me, so I guess you should be able to make it look okay for printing?

Ooh! I love how his coat bleeds into the scene below (or the scene below bleeds into his coat?)! And I love the way it looks like he's wondering how in the world his coat ended up being bled into or onto such a scene. It made me laugh.

I'm curious to see what color will be used for The Great Game. And the others. There will be more, right? Right?

Thank you! And yesss, there's going to be more of these. I wanted to continue with these right after finishing this one, but I ran out of paper and it took me a couple of weeks to find a place that sells it, but I've restocked now. I'm having a bit of an artist's block, though. :bucktooth:

Yeah, I was planning on doing that, but I ran out of paper and apparently my usual place doesn't sell it anymore, so I have no idea when I get to continue with these, lol. I'll take a look around the shops in my uni town next week. Fingers crossed. :bucktooth:

And when I read "Number Systems" I had this part of the Sherlock-Soundtrack in my head - it's one of my favourite parts of the soundtrack ^^

Asaslkdjklslf. Everyone wants to see a series of these, but I ran out of paper and I can't decide which colours to use, so they wouldn't look exactly like yours. :saddummy: *bangs head against the wall*
