After watching the second season of SHERLOCK (and almost immediately re-watching the first season) I decided a portrait of the title character was in order. So here he is, as portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch.
I’ve gotten into the habit of documenting my process a bit as I go, and posting the works-in-progress on my Instagram. It makes me analyze my process and gives my audience a glimpse into what the heck I’m up to. A keen eye will notice slight alterations and fixes as I move forward. Seen here are my rough pencils, inks, then the final colour in Photoshop. Real happy with how this one turned out, getting more confident swinging my brush pens around… that sentence sounded better in my head.
But here’s a weird bit… the final colours were actually aided by the ‘Mayfair’ Instagram filter. I don’t normally add filters to my work, but this one looked far superior.
Watch my Instagram for more of this action. Trying to sharpen my drawing skills, and having way too much fun doing so.
