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
23 out of 26 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.
gauchadeutsche Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013
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:

This painting has soul! That was the first thought I had when I saw it.
Quite a lot of good Sherlocks around but this is my absolute favorite!
Thanks for sharing this!

Just terrific!! Love it!!
manyotaX Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
just wonderful! You are SOOOO talented!!!
ceallaig Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
Wonderful piece of work, you got the brightness of his mind and the darkness in his soul in the same picture. Excellent composition, skin tone knocks my socks off. In all, beautiful!
Janegael Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I prefer realistic art that is one step away from a photograph -- but that one step has to capture what a photograph can't...the soul. Here you not only captured a perfect image, you have the expression -- the emotion that is intensified by your choice of highlight and shadow. The focus on his face and the strong lighting hints at both the characters brilliance and his darkness. This is an extremely well done piece.

Just like a photograph
lordofthepirates Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013   Traditional Artist
LOVE the light :D and perfect likeness :)
Equestrian1091 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013
I saw this and my first thought was it has to be a photo, then I looked more closely, there are very subtle differences, mostly just the lighting around the hair, though I'm not really criticizing that either, it's not in a bad way at all. This is absolutely amazing, I love it!! More Please?
kimanah Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nooo no. That's not a painting, no way! It's sooo amazing, great job I love it <3 ;)

Truly you have made a wonderful work of art! You've truly captured the exact blue shade of Sherlock's eyes! Great job depicting the world's only consulting detective!! :D
