Portrait of Jeremy Brett, 1986 by tranimation-art Portrait of Jeremy Brett, 1986 by tranimation-art
"And then off to violin-land, where all is sweetness and delicacy and harmony..."

Jeremy Brett (1933-1995) was a marvellous and versatile actor with a distinguished forty-year career in film, television, radio, and stage. He is most internationally famed for his masterful and enriching portraiture of the world's greatest consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. He has touched the hearts of millions, including my own. Mr. Brett is the "quintessential" Holmes! He is, and shall be, always dearly missed.

This is portrait is to start off the new year with a bang! 2008 hasn't been very kind to me, so I'm hoping 2009 will open doors for some hope in my life. Upward and onward!

(For more "Brettish" information, please visit my tribute websites: DeviantArt Jeremy Brett Club.)

Medium - Photoshop, art marker black (Prismacolour), graphic pen black (Pigma Micron), art pen black (Micro pen) roller pen black (Uni-Ball).

I'll bet - there's a real art to reducing your halftones to just stark black and white and still getting the picture to look right. Good work.

Also to get the angles right. I also wanted the eyes to pop as the only bit of colour on the piece.

It works... even more so in the print! (Just joined dA a few weeks ago, so this is the first print I've bought. Very pleased with the print quality, as well as with the piece itself. Beautiful.)
