Sherlock Holmes by rockrgrl4ever15 Sherlock Holmes by rockrgrl4ever15
"Wear a jacket."

"...You wear a jacket."


The amazing Robert Downey Jr. as the amazing Sherlock Holmes!

:D I haven't done a full-out portrait in absolutely forever, and this is my first piece usuing charcoal and I have to say...

I'm pretty damn happy with it.

It's good to know I still got it. And can work with charcoal. THAT was a fair bit hair-raising.

I think this is one of my favorite and best pieces I've done...woot!

And yes, I am most definitely on a Robert Downey Jr. kick. :heart: I love him most powerfully.

Charcoal+Graphite/ approx. <6 hrs, I think

Definitely impressive... I'm pretty young but I've read ALL the adventures, case files, etc.! I love the details...
Have you seen BBC's new series, Sherlock? (Don't mean to brag) but I think I'm a pretty qualified critic and I think it couldn't be a better fit- i'd urge any fan to check it out! It's modernized but so, so accurate, immaculate, and just addicting.
Well, that'd be my personal recommendation for you and again, breathtaking work.
