It's Elementary by stratosmacca It's Elementary by stratosmacca
Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes. I actually never cared for the Holmes character until I saw Peter Cushing play him. Now I think he's pretty awesome. His Holmes is my Holmes.

Peter Cushing is love :love:

I was trying to do a warm-up piece before I started painting my husband's Christmas present this weekend. I'm still getting the hang of this digital painting thing.

That's cool. Oil Painting ? Nice profile picture. "Elementary my dear Watson, there are no tarantulas in South Africa".

Isn't he great?! I love him too. I think that he is the best Van Helsing actor ever. The movie Horror of Dracula is my most favorite. All because of Peter Cushing.

You created an awesome Peter Cushing piece.

In my 20's I wanted to draw a comic book in which Peter Cushing should occur. But I faild to draw him. He looked different from Pannel to panel. I think that it is not easy to draw him.
You did a wonderful job.

Cushing is definitely one of the all-time great Holmes, and I'm delighted they finally brought out some of his BBC Holmes episodes on Region 1 DVDs.

I'd say you "got the hang of this digital painting thing" quite well. (It may sound like an odd comment, but I love how you handled the check pattern in the cloth, fading it out into the highlighting. Very nice.) This is a gorgeous piece - classic Holmes, classic Cushing, beautiful (and deceptive) simplicity to the rendering. Bravo!
