Sherlock Benedict Cumberbatch Illustration by whatwouldjoshdo Sherlock Benedict Cumberbatch Illustration by whatwouldjoshdo
I'm a big fan of the Sherlock series on the BBC. I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes in general. This piece is a bit of a step towards graphic design as I am finding it very appealing and intend to push out of my own comfort zone to find new ways to explore my skills. The piece is done with brush and ink, the type is digital and the model is Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Sherlock Holmes.

This piece has been copied by many artists on DeviantArt without my permission. This piece is the ORIGINAL. If you want to recreate it you must message me to discuss the terms of getting permission, otherwise any recreation of this I see will be reported. I hate having to post this message on my work but apparently there are those out there who feel like it is okay to note only copy but take credit for my work.

I am on a private facebook site and posted the url for deviant art for this picture not knowing that the picture would show up with the url. I will have the moderator take it down as soon as possible.  I am sorry.

How do I send people here to see it without posting the picture. When I put the url, it put the picture up.  Do I send the www.whatwouldjoshdo.com there. Will the illustration be there for them to see. or  how to I get them to deviantart.com without posting the picture with the url?  I'll have the moderator take it down asap.  I'm sorry.

Awesome illustration!!!  Would it be ok/possible for me to download a copy of it without watermarks to put/iron on a t-shirt for my daughter?  She is a huge fan as well and would love this.

Hi! I would like to use your illustration on a letterpress card in Germany. Just starting the business, so I'm not sure if the card will be sold that much... Would that be ok for you?

Hallo!
I am the friend dear Machromata speaks of. Your use of negative/positive space in this piece is incredible. It's just . . . amazing. I'm really looking forwards to the Sherlock and Watson picture you told of in another comment!
