Hacker Holmes by EranFolio Hacker Holmes by EranFolio
I expelled this in about eight hours, from start to finish. It's sloppy as hell, but it's good enough for the purposes of the project. Started out with a pencil sketch (which I usually don't do) and finished in Photoshop. My model was Ben, one of my classmates for whom I recently did a bookbinding job.

The assignment was to do a portrait of a protagonist/antagonist pair (antagonist to follow soon). I chose Holmes and Moriarty, to the tune of William Gibson's "The Difference Engine." Consider: given the opportunity, wouldn't Holmes have been a hacker?

He has a seriously demented appearance, as though perhaps he belongs in a Poe short story (poe might have liked hacking too?)

You're just too modest about the quality f your work.

He looks like a strung-out evil version of my friend Barkode, who actually is a hacker (:

Irony would have that I'm reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes now! You did an awesome job catching the character. I love the rendition of him being a hacker. :)

Why does everyone get all up in my grill about hair when you do such a lovely job of it? XD Seriously, loving the detail there.

Oddly, though, Holmes looks a touch evil. XD Wish it had printed like this...O_o
