an ancient commission for ~beaufille - originally something else, it was later changed to a portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch from the the BBC series, Sherlock.

i wanted to give the stain in the background an effect similar to that of luminol to make the link with the show a bit more clear. i haven't seen much of the show itself but i hope this will still be satisfactory to my commissioner and other fans of sherlock.

photo reference was used.

i am currently closed to commissions - at least until i catch up on the ones i still owe people. i'm sorry, i will make an announcement in my journal when i'm open. please check back later!
