Alan Rickman, Colonel Brandon by MissGeorgeSpiggott Alan Rickman, Colonel Brandon by MissGeorgeSpiggott
Drawing of Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility, August 2010

Drawn on Bristol Board 220gsm
4H, 2H, H, F Staedtler pencils & 0.5 0.3 Mechanical Pencils
I think it took about 10-12 hours but I don't often keep count.

A3.

I only have an A4 scanner and so had to scan it three times and match it up on Photoshop so the scan doesn't exactly do it justice. I also couldn't decide on whether to draw the background, but I'm lazy and my lazyness triumphed.

I actually also learnt a new scanning technique... hence the reason this looks a LOT cleaner than my other scans!

That's brilliant! Your drawings look like paintings - really enjoyed looking through your gallery. This one has to be my favourite, Alan Rickman is one of my favourite actors, loved him since watching Truly, Madly, Deeply - and I loved the role of Colonel Brandon, I'd pick him over Willoughby any day of the week!!! :D :D

Thank you! You prefer Brandon because you have impeccable taste, my dear! And you have Sean Bean as your avatar, which also goes a fair way to prove the point! Thanks for commenting! :D :D

-rolls around- This is a great piece, I love that you chose to do him in that hat, this looks like the scene were they are all gathering reeds, or that he is running off with his dog. I'm glad to see him get some love that has nothing to do with HP. Great piece -fangasum-

Really glad you like it. Yeah, that's the scene. I love him in this film. Although having said that I pretty much love him in anything, lol. Thanks for the comment. :D

Lol, it never occurred to me as I didn't think people would be that interested, to be honest! I'm flattered that you've suggested it. I wouldn't really know where to begin! I sometimes debate doing WIPs but never get round to it! Really glad you like it. :D

Beautiful way of drawing. I might sound lame but i don't know him. At least not the name. :/ I clicked the image in my updates not because i'd know him but because the image itself caught my eye.
It's not another strictly photo realistic drawing with 10 layers of shades and polished with a handkerchief and i think it's just damn worth the fave. So i'm faving it. Great job.

Thanks for the compliment! Yeah, he's pretty famous. Plays Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies, was The Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and was Hans Gruber in Die Hard. He's been in plenty of great films and is a fine actor. You should check him out. Thanks again. :D

Ah I know that photograph and I must say the drawing is almost exactly the samen. I seriously love his eyes, I could stare at them for hours ;D I also like the fact that you have created your own style. Great Job.

Thank you! There are actually two photographs - both beautiful, but I drew the slightly less famous one, lol. I might link it to the drawing. And, yeah, I completely agree about his eyes - they're just gorgeous. As is his mouth and voice. Thanks a lot for the comment, I really appreciate it! :D

Nice drawing from his iconic photograph and such a wonderful Austen movie. Great casting all around. While the dashwood sisters gathered the awards, I think Rickman had a stronger performance since his character was so much complicated and he had to come across eventually to marianne as a desireable man. Despite his fifty years to Brandon's thirty-five, he more than accomplishes this--just note him carrying in the dripping marianne: awww! (while some point this disparency out as a mistake, they seem to ignore that winslett is also too old by six years--but who's counting) One of his best roles among many excellent ones.

Quite. I love the film and actually watched it last night with my mum. It's just so nice to see him playing the romantic hero rather than a black-haired bad guy (not as that particularly bothers me that, mind, as he does do it awfully well). I definitely think he's underrated when it comes to a more natural style of acting rather than character acting. He's incredible in Snow Cake, for example. As for the scene where he carries Marianne - I could watch it all day! What a man!
