Marilyn Monroe by Stanbos Marilyn Monroe by Stanbos
Portrait of Marilyn Monroe, bristol, 50x50 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 35h.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

"I just want to be wonderful" - Marilyn Monroe

----------------------------------------------------------------------

In hommage to Marilyn Monroe. This drawing is larger than others, I wanted to draw this portrait for my room decoration x) And I think the reference I used really looks like the wonderful Marilyn...

Again bristol, I don't know if I'll keep this paper for the next ones, but I have problems with it, above all for the hair. Indeed I find it really unpleasant to detail the hair, but it obviously is excellent for the shading x)

The WIP is available here : [link]
