the gun is awkwardly sitting in his hand, but good job nonetheless

Actually, if you look at the reference photo for this image, positioning of the hand and the way the gun sits looks pretty much like this. I think where I went wrong on the painting is the way the light and shadow hits the back of his hand. That's what's making it look awkward.

This is a pretty old deviation and I feel confident that I've improved a fair bit since I made this. But thanks a lot for the feedback. :)

Haha. I didn't even know they were making another.

With the way they ended the 2nd movie, it wouldn't be surprising that they make another one. Some people didn't like the ending of A Game of Shadows because they consider it a Hollywood ending, which it's not since Holmes lives in the books.

You titled the folder this is in as "photo realism attempt"??? Again, it looks amazing. Have you seen Game of Shadows? I thought I would hate it, because I'm a book person, and really despised that they turned my Holmes into an action hero...then I saw Game of Shadows. Still not my favorite Holmes (That distinction goes to Jeremy Brett, and Jeremy Brett alone), but I certainly like him. as always this is amazing. The gun is VERY nicely done.

Lol. I titled the folder with "attempts" because I feel like the term "photorealism" is somewhat subjective. Not everyone would agree on what's detailed enough to be considered as such. But thanks. :)

I haven't seen the sequel yet. Everyone who responded said they'd recommend it since I enjoyed the first one. Thus it's on my list of ones to watch when I get the chance.
