Marilyn Monroe by Hongmin Marilyn Monroe by Hongmin
I know many ppl on DA tried and drew Monroe...and I did too but I'm not 100% satisfied with the outcome bcz I was in hurry when it came to hair...more patience was needed anyway I'll come up with a better version of her later... thank you

But I think you should try again....unlike many you have captured some ofher personality ..and her very hard to capture face......She is a very demanding subject....and very hard to capture just right...but that's why she's Marilyn...watch the walk in NIAGRA......

Then tell me

I see nothing wrong with this one, Michelle.  Marilyn Monroe was Hollywood's screen femme fatale.  Many tried to imitate her, but none have come close.  She may have been Hollywood's voluptuous oomph girl, but there was a vulnerable side to her, also.

This is way better than your Golden Era 11th, esp around the nose. (Too much shading on that one.) Here, everything about her looks alive. I have seen this photo and you rendered it justice.

Quem me dera ter 1/3 do teu talento...isso é um dom. Se eu fosse a ti não fazia mais nada sem ser desenhar.

I wish I had 1/3 of your talent...that´s a gift. If I were you I wouldn´t do anything else but draw.
(sorry for any mistakes)

Hongmin, you are doing awesome art. Could I ask you a question?

What media, and what technique do you use to blend the pencil strokes together, for example on Marilyn's forehead and cheeks - so that it looks even ?

Thank a lot !!!
