Sorry if I bore you with details
My day to day schedule is askew. I am up until 2-3 am. Drawing, playing Chess and most importantly, reading. Two years ago, I harbored not a speck of interest for a 1033 page collection of stories by Arthur Conan Doyle about an egocentric cocaine addict lying in my cupboard. But I have grown a lot since then. I was reading Edward de Bono's work: "Lateral Thinking", a few weeks ago just to give my brain the kick it sorely lacked. Then I happened upon that burly volume my Mom was forcing me to read a couple of years ago. My mindset was totally different this time round, so I picked it up and started reading. One introduction by Loren Estleman later, I was definitely most intruiged. The first chapter in A Study In Scarlet later, I was hooked. Desperately. Since then I have read almost all the stories in the first volume; in a collection of two. I have come to greatly admire the eccentric genius of Holmes and the 'acute' observations made by Watson. I have got back to drawing recently and my style has drastically changed. I have also been watching the BBC series for some time. Tonight I decided to draw a faceless figure. A faceless figure with gravity. The book was lying just beside me. So I went with it. After drawing the original lineart, my interpretation looked more classic than contemporary. Then I got to coloring. I just couldn't find the perfect color. Light brown? Olive? And then, would a pitch black empty face go with those colors? So I just searched up Sherlock. I saw Mr. Eggs Benedict wearing a black pea coat with a blue muffler. I tried that combination on the previous lineart and I really liked it. So the lineart was redone in a more modern manner. I then did the hair, and I really liked what I had done. I then decided to go completely modern with the adaptation. I never thought I would look at Benedict Cumberbatch for so long. Then going complete nuts, I splashed some red onto it, gave Holmes a pipe(cause he needs it), nudged him to the side and drew a cityscape. Seeing so much negative space, I decided to add a title. I colored it red, put in my sign aaaaaand voilà! We have this. I could be happier with it, but this is it for now. Please be completely candid in your criticisms and opinions. I shall take no offense.
