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]

Marilyn has a face of incredible beauty and softness. This is one of the best drawings of her that I've seen. You captured her radiance, and the wide black and white stripes frame her face so well. I have just come upon your gallery and am in awe of your portraiture! I will be watching... :peace: :heart:
