Discombobulate by Steampunk-Girl Discombobulate by Steampunk-Girl
Quick sketch. I'm currently working with ink and old papers for a professional project I'm collaborating on. I didn't like the drawing I did on this one so I flipped it over and doodled something.
I've recently rewatched Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes", and I can't love this movie more than I do now. I did this without reference so I just grasped some mental images of Downey's portrayal of Holmes, like the wild hair, the stubble, the hat, etc. I pretend to do more SH stuff, but in a while... now it0s the turn for comissions and a couple of old requests I need to finish asap.

Old paper and Windsor&Newton nut brown ink, metal nib
Music: Discombobulate - Sherlock Holmes OST (by Hans Zimmer)

Oooh, I love that little sideways glance... Gives me a case of fangirl-ish shivers!

Also, I adore the "Discombobulate" piece. My very favorite, with "I Never Woke Up in Handcuffs Before" following close behind.

Just exactly like me :) The rest of the soundtrack, although awesome, is just a continuous variation of those two themes, I had fanrgirl shivers when I heard the music for the first time at the theaters, sdjfhsadf <3

Ooh, yeah. I didn't get to see it in the theaters (gasp the horror!) but still got shivers when I rented the DVD.

Robert Downey Jr, in my opinion, makes the most eccentric, intoxicating, and undeniably the sexiest genius ever of Sherlock Holmes
Best Movie ever

Fantástico! se echaban de menos de tus preciosos trabajos. Me gusta mucho el detalle, el degradado del humo y la calidez de la tinta (soy fan del marrón y la sepia! xD) Sólo que no veo mucho el parecido con el actor, y si el recreo en tus gustos.
Con ello, un dibujo estupendo ^^

Gracias! ;) como digo arriba, lo hice sin referencia, y entre planta y planta que andaba entintando XD así que se parece más a una amalgama del típico hombre que hago y no a Downey Jr. Me he recreado más en las cosas superficiales que lo identifican, jurl.
Y me alegra que te gusteeee :)
