Sherlock Holmes by AuroraWienhold Sherlock Holmes by AuroraWienhold
Almost forgot to upload the final image. In the last week I got quiet a lot on my mind and I still have a lot work to catch up. :nuu: Hope you like the finished version.

Traditional artwork with watercolors, watercolor - and colored pencils, pastels, oil-pastels and ink.
Dedicated to *jessoterick. ♥

Incidentally, I still collect llamas! :hooray:

See the steps:

It's so amazing how you did the the colors of the face and how realistic the face looks! I loved how made his hair and made the background colors with it made look more alive. The background made the drawing even better than the reference!
