RAW PICS for :The Doctor & The Detective:
Markers and pens on 98lb mix media bond.
As promised, here are the raw, unedited pics from the group pic from last night’s #FanartFriday . There’s no clone stamping or cleanup of these at all, so yeah, you can see how much I actually clean up my work.
And don’t ask about the heart next to Sherlock…. Confession: I draw one next to him on EVERY PIC I DRAW of him.
See the completed pic HERE.
Cheers All :)

Little nugget of advice that really changed the way I approached painting. When I started blending like this it was a real turning point for my art quality.
Forgot to add that lighting conditions and other factors in a piece make the hardness you want to choose somewhat variable. Drawing things like skin is more of a hardness range than it is a hard rule.
Eheh…get it? Hard rule? (aaaaaaaaaand i’m done).
Thanks for the tips!

SHERLOCK – :The Doctor & The Detective:
Markers and pens on 98lb mix media bond, Photoshop CS3; WACOM Intuos.
*sighs* Sorry guys, I know it’s getting tedious but I FREAKING LOVE BBC SHERLOCK. And I love dedicating my Fanart Fridays to them! :D MWAH HAH HAH.
So, I wanted to do a “best friends” pic for Sherlock and John similar to the one I did ages ago of Rimmer and Lister in which I spend ludicrous amounts of time on individual pics of the boys and put them together. BECAUSE I love drawing these guys so much, and wasn’t initially happy with my John, I ended up drawing a TOTALLY different pic of John and decided I wanted to use that one instead. But then I thought, 'Maybe I'll just draw another Sherlock and then I'll have TWO BFF pics!' and that is incidentally what happened. I didn’t hate this pic of John enough to not finish it (really, I just don’t like his face), and I actually did finish the other John pic too. So I chose one of the Johns to go with THIS Sherlock and drew the second Sherlock to match my other John.
So… TL;DR - this is the “first draft” of my BBCSherlock BFF pic. Not terribly awful, but not the one I wanted as the final pic. But I like it though.
Not really fond of my Sherlock though… drawing a face at that angle is really difficult and it just ended up looking weird. Mreh, the detail on the rest of him is insane though, so I like it for that at least. Mreh, I think the biggest problem with this one is that the two don’t really look like they belong in the same pic. FEH. Oh well. Hope you guys like it anyway. I’ll upload the raw pics later on, probably tomorrow.
Join me for Fanart Friday on Friday Nights right here on Tumblr between 8 and 8:30 pm! NEXT FF is MARCH 14, 2014! I TAKE SUGGESTIONS! :D

General commissions are open!
A break in my schedule opened up enough to either make a sandwich or take on some mailing commissions. Since the only bread I have left is rye, looks like commissions win.
All pieces are on 9x12’ sheets of bristol board and start at $60 per character for color art (like the piece pictured above) and $40 per character in grey marker. Prices go up for elaborate or additional characters, backgrounds, props, etc. There will be additional $10 charge for P&H.
Nothing dirty, bloody or anything else to disparage the characters. Also no caricatures (There are better people than me to do those than me). Otherwise, I look forward to hearing your suggestions
I love Silvani’s DWD artwork :)Source: silvaniart
