Thanks! I still haven't seen Sherlock and don't really have plans to. But after seeing him in the new Star Trek movie, I'll admit that he's won me over as an actor.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like the skin as it's something I'm still really trying to practice. As for the hair, I just think it could use more depth. :)

Yeah, love it :D My mom is the actual Holmes/Conan Doyle (and Poirot/Agatha Christie) expert :P So I'm always on the look for movies, prints or whatever for her. I knew about BBC's "Sherlock" for a while (even today it never on any channel I have here), but for some reason didn't really care for it. Until a local network started announcing "Elementary", then I thought it was time to give BBC's a chance and introduce it to my mom. Long story short (too late? :blush:) for once I enjoyed a Holmes more than she did :P

Great job, again :D:thumbsup:

The hair looks great! :D I love this!!! And you should definitely check this show out. It's one of my favorite TV series'. Though... you should be warned. Moffat and Gatiss love to keep their fans in suspense. -_- *coughcouldtheytakeanylongertogetthethirdseriesdonecough*

Haha. I'm really glad you think so. :XD: I just think it looks a little flat compared to the face.

A lot of people have recommended it. So maybe I'll check it out sometime. :)

I guess maybe it could have a bit more depth and shine, but it looks good to me. I don't know how you make it look so realistic. I'm imagining curly hair must be difficult to do!
