You don’t have to know or be a Marilyn Monroe fan to find this a fantastic painting. The likeness is uncanny. The way you painting this is very nice and you captured Marilyn's sexy attraction very nicely. It's hard to see any flaws with the painting. It's a rough painting, and i like that. I like how you paid more attention to her face which is a great focus point. I can definitely see talent. The blending, overall lighting, posture is just really nice. I especially love the way to painted her hair. Hair is pretty hard to do, and you did it nicely.
If this doesn't get tot the front page, it should. I can't say that this looks exactly like Marilyn Monroe, as she's portrayed in an almost harsh, angular way here, in contrast with her usual curvy, soft look. I can say, however, that there's great anatomy here, brilliant attention to detail, and very good shading. The expression is expertly done and very real. Nice job!
