Marlon Brando Tribute
Painting - Digital Painting And Post Process
My impression and tribute to a very fine actor - yes, I adore old movies. :) I have tried to paint a softness and yet retain his extreme masculinity at the same time combining warm with cool tones. I used studio artist 4 and a cintiq for this work which took me around 25 hours including post process.
Marlon Brando was born in Omaha, Nebraska, to Marlon Brando, Sr., a pesticide and chemical feed manufacturer, and his wife, Dorothy Julia (n�e Pennebaker). His parents moved to Evanston, Illinois, but separated when he was 11 years old. His mother took her three children: Jocelyn (1919�2005), Frances (1922�1994) and Marlon, to live with her mother in Santa Ana, California. In 1937, Brando's parents reconciled and moved together to Libertyville, Illinois, a north suburb of Chicago.
Brando's ancestry included German, Dutch, English, and Irish. His patrilineal ancestor, Johann Wilhelm Brandau, was a German immigrant to New York in the early 1700s. Brando was raised a Christian Scientist. His paternal grandmother, Marie Holloway, abandoned her family when Marlon Brando, Sr., was five years old. She used the money her husband Eugene sent her to support her gambling and alcoholism.
Marlon died on the 1st of August 2004
