Sherlock by SariSariola Sherlock by SariSariola
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 one 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.

You can find the steps to the finished piece in my blog [link]

***EDIT***
This work was stolen and posted as her own by Sureloc [link]. She also has other work in her gallery that is very clearly not hers. Go check out that she is not using your work as she does also sell them as prints! Also if any of you bump into this picture being used anywhere by someone oter then me I would really appreciate the heads up. Thank you!

I also really love it. Especially how nice the cue state works out. Absolutely believable!
Also liked the "Making-of" in your blog ;)
Great work!

Got it subscribed to my google reader for ages. It inspired me to do that kind of "behind the scenes" on mine occasionally as well.

Your story is exactly my story. I've been reading and collecting the stories for decades now and am always very hesitant when a new adaptation is released (especially one that is set in modern day). But after watching the first episode a day ago, I was sold. Cumberbatch is delightfully ego-centric yet nails the often overly dramatic mood swings and physical ticks... and you've done very well at capturing him here!

The light you've used on his face is very well done. It's a very strong contrast to the dark tones of the rest of the piece and very effectively highlights the strong angles and planes of his face. You've also chosen a very interesting expression without it being overly expressive... which is, after all, often what Holmes is all about. You've done a great job in capturing his near-childlike curiosity without it being over the top. Wonderful work!

Oh, wow, I'm almost speechless getting praise like this. Thank you very much. He is quite a tricky character to paint as he so easily just looks cold and bland, emotioneless. I'm really glad you like it!

How could anybody NOT adore the BBC's Sherlock? It's so clever and faithful to the books in unexpected ways, but at the same time totally different. I love the fact that some bits of speech (like the whole BUT IT'S THE SOLAR SYSTEM! bit) are almost word-for-word :)
Anyway, lovely work with this.
