Sherlock by Lowola Sherlock by Lowola

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes :)

Took me ages to finish this one ! 

I really don't know why I keep drawing him, I just love to ! It's weird because I'm not usually the "fan girl" type, I've never been drawing that much on one subject, and I'm not even actually obsessed with Sherlock series or anything but... God, this face !

It's just perfect to draw ! Very particular, with these incredible cheekbones and eyes and lips and hair... not exactly a "pretty" face, yet an extraordinary one.

I never get bored drawing Benedict.

(And as always, sorry for the poor quality of the image, I hate it... I still have no better option than to take a picture with my phone, I'll really have to buy a camera someday ^^)

Nice drawing!! :) (Smile);) (Wink)  By the way, my situation about Benedict Cumberbatch is similar, as you described bellow.  I just can't stop to draw him too, because that face.. Yeah, it is very interesting to draw, such a unique combination of face features.:) (Smile)

I think the quality is amazing for a phone photo. It's so beautiful. I know from personal experience too that Benedict is indeed fun to draw, but you are really great it it.  That face looks so beautiful, these eyes, that hair. It's gorgeous.

Yes, the first time I tried to take pictures with my phone I was quite amazed by the quality... Still not as good as a proper camera or a scanner though ;)

And Benedict is definitely the person I enjoy the most drawing. I've done quite a lot of other portraits (that I didn't put on dA) but never had that much fun, I mean it's challenging but yet not that difficult, and totally different from any face ever.

Okay I'll stop there or I'll start to sound really weird...

And thank you very much ! :)

I'm really glad you like it.

Beautifully done! It captures his personality so flawlessly... The hair, the expression, the clothes... This entire portrait makes me so jealous of your talent! Keep up the good work!

I was very worried about the hair and clothes, it was hard to draw and I didn't quite get it the way I wanted, but I'm glad you like it anyway :)

Aw, of course! It's my pleasure.
Yeah, I always have trouble with hair... I think, overall, the delicacy and elegance that hair can often have is really hard to show, but here, you captured Sherlock's perfectly! I can't even begin to imagine what your original idea of how this would turn out was... How can it get any better than this? :hug:

Haha you're adorable ! :)

Hair is very hard to draw, especially curly hair. But it's also a lot of fun ! It's always been my favourite part when I draw a face (with the eyes), even if I often mess it up.

Thanks again... Well I guess I just wanted them to look more natural, less like a drawing, but anyway ;)

Aw, thanks! pikachu Rup cheeks plz 
Yeah, curly hair is a killer... And eyes are so fun to draw! (But also very difficult) Haha, yeah, I mess eyes up a lot, too.
Any time! It does look a lot like a picture, though... If I had only seen the thumbnail, I would've thought that it was just a black-and-white photo of him! So don't worry, job accomplished. :)

You're welcome, it's just true :)

Yeah, eyes... Took be a bunch of years to start drawing them more or less correctly, but never got bored of it. Hands are even harder, though...

And I know I keep repeating myself, but thank you  Innocent
