Holmes 2010 by eurasia-art Holmes 2010 by eurasia-art
I found this screenshot and just HAD to draw this. So I took my new grey paper and my new other material that I had bought less than a week ago and started off. I really should have been learning, but this is so much more pleasant and enjoyable :D

End of day 1: Reached 93 favs; making it the most faved of all my work! (Second with 92 favs are: Lots of Fingers & Doctor Eccleston)

I just recently came upon this series myself, and I instantly fell in love with it (and obviously the man of the hour)! You did amazing. Love the shading. And that's a really interesting way to draw it. I never thought of drawing towards the edge. Fantastic!

You are doing a great job using the paper color as the middle ground.

I also like to use colored paper to draw on, using less colored pencil for the light and darker values, and more of the paper. It's kind of tricky and kind of fun, too.

I only use one kind of pensil. I can't draw with different ones on one paper. Almost always HB. Sometimes 2H or F
It's tricky, but so much fun! I love drawing eyes on it.
