Someone (you know who you are) suggested I do a graphite portrait of Marilyn Monroe, and here it is. **Sighs** The hair and the pearls where the hardest thing to draw and shade, but I'm pleased on how it turned out. It took me well over four days to complete and it was done on Vellum Bristol Paper. I used 2B and HB Mechanical pencils for the drawing, for the lighter areas like the skin- I used Derwant's drawing pencils. Tortillions, Q-tips and my very own fingers were used for the shading.
:drop: Ugh! What a lousy photo! I promise that the real drawing looks much better than this!
**This is my second attempt concerning this portrait. The first was a couple of years back on black artagain paper.....it was a total disaster! I am much happier with this version and the background came out better than I thought.
**colored pencil was blended with odorless mineral spirits....my new best friend.
