Aquabatch by lily-fox Aquabatch by lily-fox
Amanda Cook and rocketorca, two of my favorite people and artists, each did a GORGEOUS drawing of Benedict Cumberbatch with ginger hair and elements of aqua, total coincidence. And I thought, Damn, my favorite colors and one of my favorite gents... I'ma join this party.

I've got a print of Amanda's and one of rocketorca's on the way. Gonna hang them all together in my house. Gonna be so chic.

He has such a chameleon face. He can look butch or fay, or menacing or goofy, or elegant or darling. There's really no wrong way to enjoy your Cumberbatch. I like mine ginger and wrapped in a sweater.

See, this is what happens when I disappear off DA for a ridiculous amount of time - I miss all the lovely artwork you've made of yet another unusual Englishman I happen to have a fondness for.... sigh.

Gorgeous. I love that combo of ginger, aqua, and some Cumberbatch. Omg, I'm imagining him drinking ginger tea now (my fav). Can you see that? Him in a scarf, holding a vintage thermos of ginger tea. :)

I. I. I'm speechless. He's so perfect! I LOVE him, and I love your version of him! (I also like my Cumberbatch ginger and wrapped in a sweater, but I'll take him any way :P)

I'm so impressed that you managed to make this look so much like him that I glanced at the thumbnail and my first thought was - "But Sherlock doesn't have hair and eyes that color!" So awesome. Lovely job. :)

Oh, no offense! I believe it was Ben Cumberbatch himself who came up with "Cumberbabe" as a gentler (and more awesome) alternative.

The colors are beautiful in this, it really picks out the color of his eyes, which in turn highlights the unique shape of them - and you captured that so well!

This is just wonderous! I adore the shade you used for his hair and I think the aqua goes really well with the ginger and the brickwork which surprised me, because I wouldn't normally like those colours together. And the look on his face is <3

I don't have nearly enough aqua clothes (they don't MAKE nearly enough aqua clothes). Redheads look so good in aqua. Ahh, how could you not love aqua and orange and coral together? C: Maybe that's a tropical thing.
