Portrait: Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes)

cumberbatch-1

Materials: ballpoint pen (black, blue, red, green)

Time: 90 minutes

Reference: Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in BBC Sherlock (2010 – ). Chose Cumberbatch for his very distinctive facial features. Slight head tilt for challenge.

Comments: pencil allowed for outer facial shape only. No eraser. Facial proportions much more accurate than previous drawing. Shading still very rough. Satisfied overall, but considerable room for improvement.
