Okay, okay... I'm FINALLY commenting on these, I know its been a while. :)

I really like the choice to do this piece, partly just cuz its different from the straight-up screencaps that you normally draw. I love Moriarty's expressions. They're so subtle most of the time. The one on the left here is great. I like when actors contort their faces in scenes, it makes it feel more real (or something :) ). Its also a great thing to do as an artist, drawing contorted faces of known people. Its a challenge to capture it from the screen and also to preserve the likeness, because once a face is contorted, its no longer in its most recognizable form. I think the one on the left succeeds the most in that regard. The one on the right is very very close, but I think loses something in the eye areas. Im not sure exactly what it is that throws me off. But maybe its just cuz Im not looking at the actually reference shot.

Again, you did great on the shading of his skin tones and the highlights in his hair. And I like that the heads are the most in focus and the suits get less details and sharp, keeps the focus where it should be. :)

Is this the only Moriarty shot you've done? (I realize I could just go check, but this is more fun haha) If it is, you should do another. You know... if you want.

:giggle: I hope you know that I don't expect you to comment all my drawings. But I am, of course, very happy when I notice your comments :aww:

I'm so glad that you like this little sketch. When I draw into my sketchbook, I feel free to try out new things. I try do something else than just mere screencaps like I usually do. I chose these two screencaps because I thought it would be a challenge to draw his facial expressions. You're so right, it was almost impossible to capture his likeness. But it was great fun, so no harm done :D

Yeah, at the moment it is the only one I've done. I planned to draw him and Sherlock together on A4 paper but since I haven't had much free time lately, I still haven't done it. I have soooo many things I'd like to do and there's so little time :(

I know its not expected, and I dont always get every one, but your stuff is comment worthy, so... :)

Im glad you try out new things in your sketchbook. Thats definitely a good thing to do now & again. I should try new things more in what I do, but then I dont. :)
