Sherlock - Benedict Cumberbatch by MeikeZane Sherlock - Benedict Cumberbatch by MeikeZane
Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in BBC Sherlock, commissioned by a friend of mine.
I'll never get enough of drawing this face, but that coat.. I don't think I want to draw that ever again. So much detail! Insane.

Pencils used: Conté/BIC Criterium 550 2H to 6B, Derwent 9B, mechanical pencil 0.5mm 3B.

This is really good! Especially the texture on his coat. That's always the hardest part for me.

I usually get lazy when I get to the clothing, as it's the face that really matters. But this was a commission, so I wanted it to be as detailed as possible in all aspects! :)

Your portraits of Ben are so absolutely amazing.  AMAZEBALLS!!!!  He's so beautiful, I can't imagine ever being able to do justice to his face, but you have, again and again.  Wow.

Thank you so much, that is a huge compliment! He has such a beautiful face that I just get inspired by it. I want to show both his face and his personality (or that of the characters he plays, depending on the drawing), his soul is so gorgeous.
