Sherlock by ThePotatoStabber Sherlock by ThePotatoStabber
My first art trade! This was a gift for :iconlucky101212: who asked for Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, and who am I to deny drawing the man? :XD: I was a little worried about the overall gloomy look of it all, but I suppose that's London for you!

I received a beautiful drawing of a strawberry dragon in return which will soon be gracing my wall ^_^

that's really fantastic! I love how you left part of the background white - it looks like snow in a very wintery scene! good job!

Thank you! It does rather have a cold/gloomy feel about it, I like the idea of it looking wintery :)

The drawing itself is fantastic, but I'm particularly taken with how you handled the background! It has that weird damp feeling of winter about it, and I love that it's almost entirely negative space, which sets off the detail of Sherlock's figure beautifully. Well done! x

I'm still staring at it in awe. I can't wait to get a frame for it, I'm going to buy one over the weekend. 
And the gloominess suits the character! He's a pretty moody guy anyway haha =D

Thank you for trading with me! I completely forgot to keep a copy of the dragon so I can't post it to dA ^^;

Horrah! :D Haha yes I suppose, don't think I can imagine him dressing up in bright bold colours xD

I might see if I can scan or photograph the fruit dragon later today and send you a link so you can upload it if you like? :)
