I’ve recently started watching the BBC series “Sherlock” based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Needless to say, I have become quite enamored with both the show and the male lead, Benedict Cumberbatch. What can I say? I have a type. Tall, lanky, suit-dawning British man with a brilliant mind and an oversized helping of smugness? Sounds like my cup of tea.
Naturally this led me to do some fanart. I’ve only done this style once before so trying it again was quite an entertaining challenge.
I tried matching the text message font used in the show. I was able to trace it down to AF Generation Z Medium online but it would cost me $46 to use it. So, I tried to find one that was close enough and came across Quicksand, a licence-free font I had downloaded earlier during one of my font downloading escapades.
I’m really enjoying trying out all these different styles (black&white portraits, cartoony icons, detailed Web 2.0 icons etc). However, I am finding it hard to finish up my first two projects, Endless Possibilities and Gables Grandview Map, when something this exciting comes along.
