You are incredibly good! Love this painting so much. Don't fret about basckgrounds btw, when you can do portraiture this well you don't need to contribute 'mis-en-scene to tell their story.

Okay, am I reading this correctly? You made all three of these Sherlock related portraits using Photoshop?!

They are amazing. Your ability to show the glow on skin, cloth and hair from a single light source is something to be jealous of. Like others, I first thought these were photographs. Your depiction of the actors is that accurate.

I spotted your work on Pinterest and now must go look through your other pieces here.

I don't have anything really constructive to say except that this is just amazing. I really thought it was a photograph - how? HOW DO YOU DO THIS? It's just....beautiful. I'm curious if it's digital painting or actual painting, if if it's actual, what you're going to do with it? (I'm also going to go look at the ones of Irene Adler and Sherlock now, so perhaps you specify there?

Astonishing! Absolutely astonishing! I write Johnlock and this is EXACTLY how I just pictured John - in the sun.

I cannot thank you enough for sharing your incredible talent with us. And I wish I had the right words to convey the beauty of this - the sun on his hair; his facial expression. Just utterly lovely. Thank you.

This looks so much like an actual picture, I'm quite amazed that it is a painting! This is a brilliant piece of artwork, I only wish I could paint like that :( Your other paintings of Irene and Sherlock are also equally amazing. Bravo, well done. You should feel very proud of yourself. Once again, I wish so much that I could make this!

Amazing, amazing work. Your skintones are just lovely. I would really like to see a hint of red where the light is shining through the ear.

Oh, a bit more? x) I tried to add "just a hint of red" x) maybe not enough? =P
Thanks for the feedback! ^^

You're welcome! If you look at someone's ear when light is shining through it, it often turns a really saturated pink/red - kind of like when you hold your hand directly over a flashlight. I think it's fun to play up in portraits. Here's an example: [link]

Hope that helps. :)

Alright x) I did, just a quick fix ;) I didn't add alot, 'cause I didn't want it to stand out too much and draw alot of attention... what do you think? :)
I think it looks nice if you don't think about it xD if that made sense..
