A mixed-media portrait commission of Sherlock Holmes, as portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch! You guys have been hiring me for all the best things lately. I can’t get over his hair! All those glorious curls. *___* His face was a huge challenge, spent days trying to get the shadow placement correct, but I must say I don’t mind realism practice at all when it’s on him! :D

I've been a fan of Sherlock Holmes since waaaaaay back, every book (have them all leather bound with gold embossed covers), every tv series and radio adaption and movie rendition of him throughout the decades. <3<3

You really captured his unique features well. And I can't get over those curls. You are the Goddess of Curls.

Oh, my goodness. You drawing Sherlock is such a dream come true. Everything you draw is gorgeous, but Benedict Cumberbatch in your style could never be anything but life changing. :la: Thank you for absolutely making my year with your awesomeness.
