Marilyn's portrait made with thousands of circles on a black background. It took me almost one week of intense work...

I love Marilyn, I think she was one of the most sensual women in the world. Some details HERE.

And if you're interested, here is a new interview I gave for ToonPool, speaking about digital circlism...

What more can I say with out appearing to be a total fanboy? I love Marilyn too and feel that a lot of art work based on her likeness is cashing in but this is a really original, and iconic, take on a icon.

I lov the fact that you have made her lips red in an otherwise monochormatic piece...very stunning.

My only slight query is her chin and the side of her face running up to just below her eye on the right and just above her eye on the left, it looks to me like she's wearing a mask. Not being an expert on this type of art I'm guessing that's the only way you could give her face depth?

Otherwise a faultless piece of work as I hope my star rating reflects.

Many thanks for the review, her face stands out because her neck is in the shadow...

Now that I've looked again, having read your comment, I don't see the 'fault' that I saw on my first viewing of this.

I definately want to buy a copy of this picture if they are for sale.

Like I said above a faultless peice of work.
