Jeremy Brett as d'Artagnan by Windfreak Jeremy Brett as d'Artagnan by Windfreak
Holmes, Freddy... how about something more rare from Mr.Brett?

Behold young Jeremy as d'Artagnan from The Three Musketeers!

The book itself and our Russian adaptation were my favourite fandom for years when I was a kid, so when I found out that JB played d'Artagnan, I just had to find and watch this series. And when I saw him in that role, of course, I couldn't resist drawing him.

So, Jeremy Brett as d'Artagnan sporting a spotless white shirt after the Bastion siege (during which he, for some reason or other, was wearing no shirt at all :D The reason, I believe, was that he looked damn good that way.)

The tv-series was in black and white, and as far as I know, there aren't any good photos of Jeremy in that role (I saw only 3 very small ones), so I decided to try and draw one. I guess he turned out a bit unrealistically too perfect. But whatever. I like it anyway.

A little known fact about me: long time ago I played Constance Bonacieux (that is d'Artagnan's lover) in a school play :) So, you know... :D

:wow: This is simply amazing. The face is wonderfully painted *drool*. Aside from that I especially love the detail on his hair, the feathers and the shirt with laced collar. And the colors too :aww: .

Lately I tried drawing Jeremy Brett many times but I feel like I can never quite capture his unique features and his expression. He's a tough one to draw or paint - I think you did a superb job. :worship:

I'm wondering if you can make the "topless" version, you know what I mean XD

Thanks!

He-he, maybe I will, though I cannot promise for sure. The plus of the topless picture would be that Jeremy would be with a big badass gun, and I just love drawing guns! Though I know nothing about XVII century muskets, but why not research it, right?..

Well, to tell you the truth, I didn't enjoyed this series as much as I hoped I would. Though if you're Jeremy's fan, it's definitely worth watching, because he was so handsome here and played so differently from what we are all used to (that is Holmes :)) - so passionate and emotional!

Хех... Хорош Д'Артаньян. Мужичинка - что надо. Все-таки Боярский был лучше)

Можно придраться? Кажется у него на носу перегородка между ноздрей (над ложбинкой губ) немного длинновата и выбивается. А так... А что - очень даже ого-го)

Нет, внешне Бретт однозначно лучше, возражений не принимаю) Хотя игра Боярского мне тоже все-таки ближе, да.

Может быть, слегка. Хотя у мистера Бретта при определенном ракурсе все вроде так и есть.

Я не говорю, что он внешне хуже. Боярский внешне - так себе. Про игру я ляпнула) Ну тут уж на вкус и цвет)
