Iconic by HavokMonroe Iconic by HavokMonroe
Marilyn Monroe done in colored pencil.

I titled it Iconic because this is what most people think of when they think about Marilyn. The glamorous personality that she created. I seen this picture many times here on dA, but I thought I'd draw it in color :D
I got the referance picture from a Marilyn book I have called Images of Marilyn, it was in black and white.

This is just plain amazing. Your so talented at portraits, especially of Ms. Monroe and Bettie! :3

Just the way you draw her face, especially the eyes and hair are a dead give away of who she is. I really wish I could do that myself. I guess practice makes perfect!

Anyways, besides Marilyn herself, my other favorites are her fur and the background color. You are always so well at details like that. I envy you, seriously! ;)

Another great piece, Amanda! Keep it up!! :hug:

Thank you so much! I honestly can't say that enough. Thank you thank you thank you!! :hug:

It's true, it's always good to practice. I've been drawing Marilyn since I was 11. It's because of her that I love to draw portraits and pin up's :D
