"Marilyn" Finally got around to drawing Marilyn Monroe. Took about a month and a half, due to my work schedule. I'm actually pleased with it, the jawline and cheek were very difficult to get right. She looked very macho for a while. Some times a drawing can look good or bad depending on one small section. I think I pulled it off in the end, though the paper was wearing thin from all the corrections I made. -4B to 8B -kneaded eraser -tri tip eraser -tortillons -regular mechanical pencil -same old stuff -Strathmore smooth drawing paper 400 series. (I have "better" paper, but I can't bring myself to use it. I'll force my self on my next starlet portrait just to see if it will work. I just don't like the texture...) Check out a video of the drawing at Carlos Benson Art on facebook.
