Thank you! :aww: And it's not that big. It's about 10x7 inches, a little bit smaller.

Great job. Charcoal gives it a great quality. A bit mysterious like Sherlock.

Oh, yes. More than I should. :blush: I can't help it, though. Sherlock Holmes is probably my favourite fictional character and Sherlock is a most clever adaptation, so...

I understand you. I feel the same way about him. He's my favorite fictionnal character because of his cleverness and the actor playing him, Benedict Cumberbatch might be the sexiest Sherlock Holmes ever ^^
