Greta Garbo-Golden Era 1 by Hongmin Greta Garbo-Golden Era 1 by Hongmin
The first of 12 ladies is done for the Calendar project.. her clothing and the gloves took longer than i expected but i'm pretty happy with the result .. I tried to draw it like a old photograph.. kind of dreamy look.. the next one will be Ingrid Bergman... long journey has just begun and the 1 is down.. sigh;;;; oh sorry for not putting the wips.. had no time to take the pics..:teddy:

Oh Man yes in her 30s especially!

Look at my "Faithless" drawing- Its one of my Tallulahs. I've added more to it since (the background is darker, the part of her face that is pressed into the pillow is also darker etc. Would love your comment!:)


Gretas on my to draw list :)

She looks so happy in this drawing and I'm so impressed by the fine details you incorporated into her eyes (she has such lovely eyes at that). Although a talented artist tends to feel dissatisfied with his/her work, I really love this one. :aww:

It looks incredible! She is so amazing and so is your drawing of her.
I don't think it's just coincidence that you started with Greta Garbo first. (:
But wow.
Great work!

And the way you blend with a brush that I read in one of your responses sounds really interesting. I think I'd like to try that sometime. It seems to have a super result.
