Marilyn Monroe by Doctor-Pencil Marilyn Monroe by Doctor-Pencil
This style was a little different for me? It felt like more of a sketch, due to the out of focus, and old looking reference photo. I couldn't make out 100% what was going on in the hair area, but reproduced it the best I could
:D:D

ahh cool. It was a half hearted effort on my part. someone here asked me to draw her, and I rushed through it in one night and went too small at 4x5 inches? :D:D

I dunno what she's thinking here, but you've captured it perfectly! She looks lost and a bit worried, i'd like to know what she's thinking...

Considering the amount of light on her face that's pretty amazing :D

I noticed she's smaller than the others, but honestly the quality's great! I really didn't notice the different paper, i was too busy trying to work out what she was thinking lol :D

Have a good weekend - and a Happy Birthday! :D

Rick, this is a vivid drawing both striking and pleasing to the eye. I have not been on my computer lately, a lot of pain and discomfort. Surgery next month, please keep me in your prayers.
Your friend, Janie

i think I goofed up her nose a little. Something looks off? Someone asked me to draw her, so my heart was not in it 100%? :D:D

i think i know whats wrong with the nose.. i checked the photo again.. look at the shade on the top of the nose.. it should be more rounded, i think. more of shade on the left side ;D in my humble opinion, but i do not dare discuss with you!! ;)))

Thanks a lot! To be honest, someone here requested I draw it, and I found my heart was not in it. It's kinda like doing commission jobs. I hate drawing something that did not first inspire me :D
