Sherlock - Painting by Lasse17 Sherlock - Painting by Lasse17
Update: Fixed some problems with the hair and shadows + enabled download :)

I've decided to not include John in this painting just so that it would be easier for you to see how this came to be through my WIPs.. but I think I might make one with John too.. with sherlock or alone, not decided yet.. maybe both.. .. both is good xD

anyway =P Please comment

It is EXCELENT. From A distance, it could be mistaken for a picture taken by papparatzii or whatever. A Good picture.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
18 out of 21 deviants thought this was fair.

I think I've run out of synonyms for amazing. But that's what it is.. Wow, I can't believe it's a PAINTNG! The details are just perfect; lighting and all. I especially love how you did his hair.. squee. ^_^;
His eyes look alive. You captured him so brilliantly.
Like the other critique suggested, it looked just like a picture when scrolling through the smaller list of these.

This painting definitely deserves the attention it gets. I honestly cannot describe how lovely this is. xD Well I probably could but words wouldn't do it justice. Absolutely fantastic.

Believe in Sherlock Holmes, everyone! ...and this artwork! ^^

Just curious: What episode did you get the reference photo off of?  I can't for the life of me find it.

(Brilliant work, but the way.  Big fan.  :) )

This is SO amazing. I seriously thought it was a photo at first. Beautiful job on capturing Benedict. Great work.

This.  Is.  AMAZING!  I can't even begin to imagine how you go about it, but it's perfect and I can't look away.  Your John and Irene are spot-on too, but this one is my fave just because it's Benedict. :love:
