Sherlock by Tacoly Sherlock by Tacoly
My friend :iconimmadanishviking: requested I drew Benedict Cumberbatch for her graduation. A bit late, but here it is.

The textures of his clothes were horrid to draw. I'm still not very happy with them >_o Ah well, seeing as this is my second traditional piece this year I might just be a bit rusty.

Graphite pencils on Bristol A4 paper, 10~12 hours. Reference can be found here: [link] , from the BBC series "Sherlock" (which is awesome, watch it!)

Ah, cloth textures. I remember the time I was making the texture and pattern of a tie. Very very very long process but I did it! And from what I see, you did too on his clothes. I can imagine it was difficult creating all of those squares and make them look raised.

On the face, very well done. The stern glare really adds to his personality.

the texture!!! seriously amazing, especially the scarf. I wouldn't have even bothered I think, to try to get that fuzzy look. Awesome.
