Attempting to expand my repertoire a little, to avoid eliciting the reaction of "Oh not another... (you know what goes here)," I've been sketching a few different characters from classic lit. I'm still working out my Watson, but have some Sir Percy Blakeney, bart., the Scarlet Pimpernel, in the meantime.
I need to do more research on fashion from the era before I can confidently draw the clothing, but it was the expression I was after here, more than anything else.
Sketch is... small. Pencil on paper, slight clean-up and a touch of colour in Photoshop.
