Sitting Benedict by Namecchan Sitting Benedict by Namecchan
I swear that singing at the top of my lungs old (and embarrassing) italian songs, helped a lot while drawing this… <;

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-22
A great portrait of one of the most prominent actors of recent years. Loving the sketchiness of the background, along with the contrast of colors it makes the character stand out.

wow. It's just awesome. Look at that combination of white sneakers and fashionable suit. And the background like an erupting volcano tells what's going on in his mind. Are you Chinese?(I guess from your thumbnail) Anyway, Wow, you're so good at painting.

Oh my, thank you so much for your kind words! C: I'm really happy you like my take on Benedict here!
And to answer your question, I'm not chinese; when joining DeviantArt, I've simply decided to use as icon one of my favourite pics of Wakamatsu Kaori (also because some friends told me we looked similar! XD )

Thanks again! <3

Geez, your ability to draw realistic (and recognizable) people is phenomenal! How long did this take you/did you use many references? C:

I did use a reference, but I'm not sure how long it took me... 4/5 hours, maybe? I draw in my spare time, so sometimes I lose track of how much time I spend on a single work... <:

I got conflicting feelings about him.
His confidence is annoying yet f*cking appealing.
Simply speaking, I do not know I wanna be him OR wanna be with him ...

What are your feelings, artist?
Reply
:iconnamecchan:
Namecchan Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014
Ha ha, I know what you mean! <;
My feeling is simply that he's gor an interesting face to draw, and I like his voice... and his acting - and that's why I draw him! C;

No wonder, he probably has a tattoo somewhere "Made in Britain. Quality guarantee".
And those shoes... Such a teddy-boy. Wink/Razz 

P.S. Love the irony of this work :)

Very amazing painting! The pose and lighting help give him that proud, regal, and snarky attitude that he portrays in his Sherlock role. It's kind of as if he's thinking that he's smarter than everyone else and he knows that we all know it but don't want to admit to him due to his ego. That's what his expression says to me. XD Again, great job on this. Well worth that Daily Deviation. :D
