I painted this Sherlock illustration over the weekend. I absolutely love the BBC show and I can't wait for the third season.  I've been meaning to make a Sherlock picture for a while, so it felt good to finally get around to it this weekend.  

The whole thing was painted in watercolor, but painted as separate elements and then assembled in Photoshop.  Sherlock was on one sheet of paper, the clock face of Big Ben was on a second sheet, and the London skyline and the 221B were on a third sheet of paper.  It made it much easier to paint the washes and details that way, since I didn't have to worry about things bleeding too much.  It also allows me to save the separately painted elements to play around with later for future designs.

You can find this illustration right here in my Society6 shop, where it is available in a variety of print sizes and other products.
