Sherlock Holmes Caricature

I thoroughly enjoyed the BBC's recent updated version of Sherlock Holmes starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr Watson. A much too short run of three one and a half hour episodes with the final episode leaving the viewers in a state of suspense with one hell of a cliffhanger, well worth a watch if you missed it.
Here is my caricature of Benedict Cumberbatch as the great detective Sherlock Holmes.

James Hetfield Caricature

This is the finished painting from a sketch I did of James Hetfield from the group Metallica. The overall pose in the reference photograph was a little tongue in cheek to start with and I exaggerated the expression and overall look of the caricature more than I would normally. I think it works ... what do you think?
