I let Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC Sherlock) draw himself for my dear friend *naturalshocks' birthday, which is today...! :heart:

happy b(enedict)-day :cuddle:

:iconsherlockwinkplz:


In all seriousness, I drew the outlines last night, and finished the drawing at day :) it's a bit of a minimalistic take on a sketched portrait, and I gotta say it was a lot of fun to work like this! Perhaps I could draw more like these as practice in between my current projects/commissions.


Drawn on Hahnemühle Nostalgie A4 size paper with mechanical pencils.

This is absolutely stunning.  You have immense talent, Nic.  So much more beautiful than all the art by people who are just enhancing photos.  You can really draw.   This "minimilist style" is very effective.  And you have really captured his quite difficult face and gentle, intelligent expression.  Kudos!

What a creative concept, drawing himself. I like that! :D It's very good, simple, but quite lifelike. The hand especially impressive. Hats off to you my dear! Hat off 2

You totally should let him draw himself more often, you know. He is-well, it appears that he's pretty great at it.

Yes. When I see him I shall give him a pencil and ask for a sketch instead of an autograph :#1:
