On the drawing table – Sherlock Holmes inks

I’ve been reading through the complete Sherlock Holmes the last few months.  I’ve also become a fan of Jeremy Brett’s portrayal of the illustrious sleuth.  Needless to say I was more than happy to be commissioned to work on this Holmes peice.

It’s 9 x 12 on bristol board.  I’ve inked it with a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen and am getting ready to move into the coloring stage.   After I finish up the colors I’ll go over the inks again and vary the line weight.
