Thinking in Grey, Sherlock fan art by Amy Crook

Thinking in Grey, Sherlock fan art by Amy Crook

Copic markers have four kinds of grey — warm, cool, neutral and toner. I used warm and cool greys to put in all shading here, giving the whole image a muted effect like an old photo. You might recognize the pose from last week’s bookmark, which was sort of practice for this bigger piece, though of course I widened the view quite a bit.

Thinking in Grey, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper, nfs (sold).

    🙂 It is rare to see you draw in this point of view 😀 *Love hands in mouth* <3

    Oops, just realized I haven't see the bookmark version!

    Most of the comics I do wouldn’t be very interesting from this vantage point, it’d just be the tops of heads. Dull, as Sherlock would say! 😉
