Not so elementary – or Insert Sherlock Pun Here

For the past couple of days I’ve been trying to draw the esteemable Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock. Like Matt Smith he has a wonderful face that I can only describe as “characterful”, and makes me stare slack-jawed and wide-eyed until I can work out quite what’s going on there.

So for a face so full of…well, character, you’d think it would be easy to caricature. But, well, it’s not. My doodlebook is now scrawled with countless rubbish attempts. This is the best I can do. Now I need to stop before you find me in a cell with walls I’ve scrawled multiple Sherlock faces all over, a la Jim ‘FREAKIN’ INSANE’ Moriarty.

Let it go Mima, just let it go.
