Famous Pipe Smokers

Sherlock Holmes always fascinated me. He had an intriguing character that could not easily be portrayed by many. I was looking for the perfect face for the famous detective - where he would look, young and energetic yet wise and calm. Basil Rathbone according to some is the best Holmes ever. I did a Google search on him and quick sketch. This resulted in a series of sketches using my Fiber-tip pen.

 I titled the series as "Famous Pipe smokers". Unfortunately I couldn't make it more than four.

The paper I used was a flawless A4 (office supply - what a good use I'm putting them into !!!), But my camera (actually a cellphone with a camera) and the lighting in my room resulted into an artistic photo that I couldn't ignore.

The last of the series is General Douglas MacArthur. He has the character, What say you?
