Mission Sherlocked?

So after Daenerys I for some reason started painting Sherlock from the new BBC series. These two together have to count for one mission, right? RIGHT?

This was originally supposed to be a colored piece but I like it so much as grayscale that I'll just leave it as it is. For now.

There are steps to this piece in my blog


  1. Very nice piece. You capture, not just the bone structure of the character, something essential.
    And I dig the lighting of it.

  2. Thank you :) I'm quite pleased with it myself. I hardly ever do something so painterly so this was a nice little experiment.

  3. One turns one's back for a couple of seconds, and fantastic stuff pops up! You really have become skillful in digital painting <3

    Also, I think we should swap digital brushes!

    1. Thank you <3
      I'd love to swap brushes! But I must admit that this one and Daenerys are both done with a single brush. I just change the opacity and hardness a lot. The only place where I used a different brush was right in the end when I added a tiny bit of "skin texture" with a rougher brush on his cheeks.
