Benedict Cumberbatch and Howard Stern Caricatures

If you have been following me on Facebook and Instagram, then you know that I recently attended the Hyderabad Artists Meetup Vol. 2 at Collab House, Jubilee Hills in the beginning of this month.  At this event, Sri Priyatham gave a workshop on Caricature drawing.  It has been years since I drew caricatures, but at this event I tried my hand at it.  The subject we chose to do that day was Sherlock and The Imitation Game star Benedict Cumberbatch.  Here is my caricature –


This was done with pencil in my sketchbook.  Also inspired by Sri, I joined this Facebook Group called Caricaturama Showdown 3000! and decided to participate in their weekly Caricature Challenges.  This week’s subject is Howard Stern.  Here’s my caricature –


I’ll post more drawings as I do them.  Would you be interested in purchasing prints of these?

Sherlock Drawing

Recently, a teaser was released for Series 3 of the TV show Sherlock.  It’s an awesome show and being very inspired by it, I drew this picture –


This was drawn on my Micromax Canvas HD phone, entirely digitally (in fact, I am making this post also from my phone). I drew it using the Sketchbook Express app, and edited in Snapseed.  The text was added in Pixlr Express.  The words are the clues to the three episode titles that will be part of Series 3.

Thanks Girish Kumar for telling me about the words.

Sherlock Holmes was a fiction created the moment I was awoken by your Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to help him advance his cause. A smoke screen to conceal my true identity. My name is… Khan.

Benedict Cumberbatch has played a role in the following franchises – Sherlock Holmes, Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings.  Now all he needs to do is to appear in an episode of Doctor Who and a Star Wars movie and he’ll have covered all the major fandoms!  (the above quote inspired by Kashyap Chandra.)
