Consulting Detective by RachelleFryatt Consulting Detective by RachelleFryatt
I've been feeling super rusty lately, as due to several things over the past 2 months I've not really been able to draw. So to try and get myself back into the swing of things I decided to do another portrait. I wanted someone with more interesting and odd facial features, and you don't get more interesting and odd than Benedict Cumberbatch. I recently watched Sherlock, and loved it, so I thought it would be fun to give him a go :)

Several different references used: 25.media.tumblr.com/5d2f478011... ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/368... i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/a...

Not much else to say really, other than I tried to keep this one a bit looser than previous fan art portraits.

Sherlock is BBC
Art is Rachelle Fryatt- DO NOT USE, REDISTRIBUTE OR ALTER IN ANYWAY.

Step by step may be uploaded in the next few days if people would like to see the process :3

Thanks to ~redheadstock for the awesome tweed texture brush I used for his coat, which can be found here! browse.deviantart.com/art/Fanc...

He's got such a unique face, and I loved Sherlock (I wish there were more episodes argh!).  He was fantastic in the new Star Trek as well!  Amazing work as usual :D

Man, it was such a lovely change to draw someone with unconventional facial features! I don't find him particularly attractive (though his voice is ridiculously sexy!), but he is such a fantastically skilled and talented actor that I couldn't pass on painting him :D
Super looking forward to the 3rd series, but never got round to seeing Star Trek in the cinema, so hopefully it wont be long before it'll be released :)

I agree he's got a great voice, and that he's not that attractive...at least not to me, but he's SO good at the roles he plays!   I hope you get to see it soon, it was very well done - if you haven't seen some of the old trek episodes/old movies it would be good to at least watch Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for reference (you don't *need* to see it but it helps with references) :D  If you've seen it then no need to re-watch it...unless you like ear bugs =P (ick ick ick)

He's a very charismatic actor  :) I grew up on Trek, my parents were nuts about it, so it was always on, along with Stargate, StarWars, etc. :D I was gutted I missed it in the cinemas- I was working crazy night shifts when it was released and just never got the opportunity to catch it. 

And ear bugs freak me out far too much! :P

I grew up on Trek too, my dad was really into it and I watched ST:TNG with him, and from my mom I got the Whovian bent.

I can't re-watch Wrath of Khan because of the ear bugs =P
