Here comes a pencil color artwork of “Sherlock” (the BBC TV series). I completed this one a while ago and it portrays our very beloved master of deduction, the world’s only “consulting detective”, Sherlock Holmes.
I just love the series and I believe Benedict Cumberbatch has played the character really well! Waiting to see some more of Sherlock’s brilliance in Season 4. 🙂
I was going through some old drawings of mine and found these two illustrations I made a year ago – “The Lion” and “The Phoenix”. Both artworks are made entirely with color pencils and are a vibrant mix of colors with some abstract creativity.
The Lion is an amalgamation of bright, vivid designs resulting in a lion’s head gleaming with pride. The Phoenix illustration has an equally vivacious phoenix flapping its magnificent wings. One is the king of land and the other the prince of skies! Here are the artworks:
I am currently working on a new illustration, the “Abstract Elephant”, and its underlying sketch is presented here in this post.
The core concept is an abstract elephant head with minimal, but beautiful design elements and a rather plain background (unlike most of my works, I admit)… Still, the subject looks quite vivid and versatile. As the elephant’s sketch is now ready, I have prepared the pencil-work to show on the blog!
Made with some editing, here comes a black & white shaded sketch of the mighty animal. And from the pencil outline, I have also created a vintage-looking Abstract Elephant wallpaper for my readers! Have a look… Continue reading →
I have made another bird illustration, and here it is… “Avis” themes a simple, cute bird perching on a branch at the seaside (you may think of a distant island) and looking at the sea, as vast as the sky… The black branches and tree leaves made by spiral crayon strokes add to the effect.
Here is the vibrant crayon sketch →

I thought that I should also share the design process of the Abstract Phoenix illustration and the things I got inspiration from while designing the artwork.
The basic idea emerged simply from the fact that I love phoenixes and from much time, I was thinking to draw one…
And so I started my search on lovable designs that may suit to it… And then, after some tit-bits of experiments, I finally made a fair paper-pencil sketch (the sketch is present with this post), added colors and gave final touches on the computer.
I’m presenting the sketch and the inspirational content that added to my illustration.
