The companion piece to John Watson. I say companion because I did John first.
This one was much harder than the other, because Benedict Cumberbatch just has an odd face. I like his face, and I love how odd it is. For a long time, working on it, it didn't look like him, and then I realized that what really makes him look like himself in this photo is his eyes. So once I put those on, it was like oh look, Benedict!
I had some issues with the chin being right, and the original version just... no. I asked Heidi what to do and she suggested using a white color pencil to just fix it. Well, it worked. And so I added some hair highlights and cleaned up a tiny bit and voila.
Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in BBC's Sherlock. Dr. Ph. Martin liquid watercolors.
