Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock

I absolutely adore BBC's new Sherlock. I didn't expect to as I have been reading the books since I was the size of a fire extinguisher and my love for the true Sherlock Holmes, Jeremy Brett is equally large. Never the less, right from the first episode of the new series I was hooked. Which lead to this painting. This one has nothing to do with anything other then sheer fangirling. I simply am and will be SherLocked.

Here are some steps to the finished piece.

I don't often do everything from sketch to finish in Photoshop but when I do I always use some sort of grid to help with the scale of things.

  1. Great artwork! Captures Cumberbatch in all his glory :)

    Brett was a very masterly Holmes.

    Have you read the book "Bending the Willow: Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes" by David Stuart Davies. This book is a must read for fans of the Granada adaptation and/or Jeremy Brett.


  2. Thanks! I'm glad you like it!
    I actually haven't read that. I have been meaning to but it is still on my nightstand waiting for the magical "when I have time"-moment :)
