When I say run... by whimsycatcher When I say run... by whimsycatcher
In case it's hard to tell, or if you just haven't seen s2e1 of BBC's Sherlock, that's Benedict Cumberbatch under all that fabric! ;D

Took a break from some bigger projects to do this... I just wanted to draw his rather intriguing eyes (or just one of them) so I thought this particular scene would be perfect to reference.

Anyone else wonder how he was able to take on so many armed men... with just a machete? XD

- mechanical pencil on Moleskine watercolour paper
- editing & colour addition in Photoshop

My other portrait of Benedict as Sherlock: <img src="[link]">

Well, according to the books, Sherlock Holmes is well versed in both fencing and baritsu, so I assume he had a few tricks up his sleeve... 
A splendid piece.  You really captured the intensity of this frame. It is so very arresting, his gaze truly mesmerizing. Well done!

Ah, well we must have missed quite a display of skill! I'm suddenly wishing Benedict would do some fencing on the show! ^^ 

Thanks very much for the thoughtful comment, Iris. I'm glad you enjoy my piece!

Great job capturing his eyes! It's really hard to do, at least for me. Not everyone can do it :)

oh my gosh yes. Love the eyes, I'm quite frankly amazed at the shading in the headscarf (?) (I wish I knew the actual name, I feel like such a cultural klutz) and the overall expression that you captured just perfectly! The urgency and yet the.. seduction? Just a wee bit? Oh yeah. Brilliant!

whimsycatcher Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012
Oh, thanks so much! Really glad this little drawing conveys so much to you! Aw, no worries, I just call it a headscarf, too! Some might call it a "hijab", though (which I only know because I just read in this morning's paper about Amra Babic, the first hijab-wearing mayor to be elected in Bosnia, lol). I'll likely forget the word in a few days... XD
