Sherlock Holmes by Hideyoshi Sherlock Holmes by Hideyoshi
Not the usual deal from me! :)
But I find it important to delve into many different areas - characters, genres etc.

This was done for CHOW - Sherlock Holmes, with my own interpretation so to say. Scruffy looking with glasses :)

I actually forced myelf to render the character and consider it a great practice.

No ref. on the background, just some for the character.
There are some perspective issues (besides other flaws), but I was working without a grid.
I am happy with the mood, it'S exactly how I wanted it to feel.

Here are some steps:

This is beautiful, to me it evokes the epitome of not only Sherlock Holmes, but the mystery genre itself.  I have shared this as part of my kids  home education mystery unit where we discuss depictions of Sherlock in visual arts.  Truly talented work - Thank you so much for sharing.

This is amazing. The background is especially impressive, looking wet and gloomy as 19th C London could.

I like how it follows the feel of the stories. Sherlock Holmes, dressed in his traditional coat and hat, taking stroll through the streets of London. A cane in hand, his pipe in his mouth, and intense eyes searching out the details of the world around him. Excellent work.

I like it how this drawing makes me feel. I want to wear a long coat and a bowler hat and stroll in the chilly side alleys in 19th century's London.

I'm absolutely in love with this picture. I've been reading Sherlock Holmes for years, and I've never found a truly iconic vision of the look of Sherlock Holmes yet. Every time I think of him, I find myself swimming between the looks of Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett, and now finally to Robert Downey, Jr. with, I'm sure, a smattering of other nameless actors who've portrayed the great detective over the last century. I love how this picture takes nothing from the aforementioned actors, while giving it its own distinct look and character.

If I had any critique to give on this picture (foregoing your own personal statements), it would be his facial hair. I've always thought of Holmes as either shaved, or right about to shave, and this shows him as having grown it out. I'm sure some other, more obsessed Holmesian out there will come in to correct me on this, but it's my childhood viewpoint, and it's a hard one to wrestle away.

I joined deviantart JUST so I could say this, and ask your permission to use it, just once, as a cover for my Kindle ebook reader (i.e. I would not duplicate it or hand it out to anyone else), with proper accreditation to you?
