Ravenno With Tea

This blog is for posting my various art / fanart projects to tumblr from 2013 and on. For earlier work, check out my DeviantArt page in the links above. :)

For #LetsDrawSherlock

Inspired by/referenced from Pause for Thought by Pierre-Auguste Cot

The wallpaper pattern was reproduced using Illustrator to imitate one of the many fabulous wallpapers seen on the 221b set in the current BBCsherlock series, with the purpose of adding more visual noise to the background but still keeping it thematically congruent with this project.

Everything else was painted using Photoshop. :)

I personally like the cropped version a little bit better, so I’m leading with that image.  I included the un-cropped version for better comparison to the source image.  This was great fun as a project and I learned a lot, especially about lighting, from trying to interpret the original painting in this manner.

Also a thank you to everyone who was super awesome and supportive, and gave me constructive critiques during the process of painting this.

Thank you! ♥
