Elizabeth Taylor-Golden Era 3 by Hongmin Elizabeth Taylor-Golden Era 3 by Hongmin
The most beautiful actress in the Hollywood history as I remember is done.. sorry for putting no WIPs this time.. she has a very glamorous look compared to my other series in this project.. getting the smile right and the subtle tone change in the facial muscles were not easy and didn't know what to do with the background this time.. but am pretty happy with the outcome... thanks for watching again... for the close up of her face [link]

This looks like her "Last Time I Saw Paris" period. I love that movie to death, have it on DVD. really wonderful job you do on all your work. Did you have art school training or are you self taught? :star:

love the way u did the hair highlites,... one constructive criticism - the teeth look funny because of the dark shadows on the top,... if that's the way the photo was - weird, because it jumps right out at me

hi long time no see .. and thank you for ur suggestion and as u said it looks little weird .. but it has the light coming from above her forehead so there falls the dark shadow on her gum line and part of her theeth,, but the thing is the real drawing doesn't look bad as the one on DA..this has high contrasts but the original one is softer in tones.. anyway i really appreciate ur critique .. and have a good one! :highfive:

thanks Michelle,

Yeah, I totally know where u are coming from (those darned scans don't always come out right) I recently had my oil painting "Fifties Future" published in an annual Art Book called Spectrum 15 - and when I first saw it I almost fell over because the colors were off (too yellow)

Sometymes all ya can do is grin and bare it.
