A study in ballpoint by EatToast A study in ballpoint by EatToast
I love the name Benedict Cumberbatch. Good job naming, Cumberbatch parents.

Because of school and everything else, I really only have time to do ballpoint sketches in the evening. This is one of them.

I'm pretty stoked for the new Sherlock series to start up again.

This will probably end up in scraps later.

Agreed he has a great name! Sounds so... posh. XD
*Click* Aww, couldn't get it bigger. D: Well what I can see looks a great biro pic - a nice mix of detailed enough to be easily identifiable, but not overworked which can be a danger sometimes with those pens. Love the hands!

Great sketch! I like how you shaded the parts in his face and hands. I always experience a lot of trouble doing that, mainly because I usually overdo the shading (hence the high number over realism piece which were meant as sketches in the first place, lol)

After seeing this I can't wait for the new Sherlock series :)

Thank you! I always want to finish a drawing, but stuff happens, and I don't really ever get any farther than a sketch. :XD:

Magical~! With a ballpoint pen, that's just epic.

Those hands! How do you make them look so good!

Benedict Cumberbatch. That is one awesome name...

Amazing portrait! (what do you mean scrapes, lady!?) As for ball point being the only thing you have time for, all I can at least you're doing it. What you're producing is fantastic.

I'm also excited for the new season... and Benedict Cumberbatch is the most kick ass name I've ever heard. Most actors would have changed a name like that while waiting tables before getting their "big break".
