Yikes! It's been too long that I've uploaded a finished work to DA (or at least it seems like it...) which is odd because I've actually finished a few different things in recent times o.o even this one I finished days and days ago!
Anyhoo... here he is! Sherlock Holmes fanart!
My first try at using tinted
charcoals, which I found incredibly fun! I confess, I'm in love!
I hadn't used charcoals in forever either, so I'm quite pleased with the result (even though I had to cheat with a touch of white paint in a couple places because I mucked up beyond the ability of chalk or an eraser to fix!) Poor Watson's face was drawn and redrawn and erased and painted over and redrawn more times than I could count -_-' but it's okay, we made it in the end, didn't we Old Boy? (Yes this is where you all back away slowly because I talk to my own artwork now...)
Let me just say though I enjoyed every minute! Even the mistakes that I had to painstakingly fix. There's something to be said for having to correct your mistakes without the use of Ctrl + Z bwahahaha or perhaps I'm just insane. It's very possible. It does actually look like him right?! o.o
I can't tell anymore... too much staring at it
I'm actually going to build a frame for this, and do something quite special... so I'll upload a photo when it's done
Oh and I actually used black ink to do the writing in the background
Moving on, I'm sorry everyone who's left comments for me that have been as yet unanswered! I'm so behind, I've hardly been on DA at all lately, but I'm hoping to catch up this weekend!
Thank you all so much
PS Honk if you you think Robert Downey Jr is the SEXIEST MAN EVAH (apart from Jensen Ackles... it's a tie >_> )
Artwork is mine, and I have all the hard copy proof, so don't bother stealing.
