If you enjoyed this drawing, I have several other Marilyn Monroe drawings in my DA gallery (and a few at my graphic design site); here is the link to my dA Marilyn Monroe gallery:

Information about this drawing:
Marilyn Monroe as Lorelei Lee from the 1953 movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
(Jane Russell was also fantastic in this film!)
This portrait was drawn using a Verithin brand color pencil (using only the black one).
Edit: this entire image was drawn by hand by me.
However, because the digital photo I took of the drawing
was rather dark with washed-out mid tones (due to the quality of the photo; the drawing itself has acceptable value variation), I did use Photoshop on the photo of the pencil drawing to remove some smudges and such that were on it, especially on the upper left area by her head, and I used Levels to lighten it.
This drawing is several years old. I don't do much traditional art anymore. Most of my art these days is made on the computer. Please do not use this drawing without my permission.
Any Deviant Art groups I submit this to obviously do
have my permission to place this in their galleries.
I also do not
object to any Deviant Art members adding this to their Deviant Art collections or Deviant Art "favorite" collection(s), and Deviant Art obviously has my permission to have this art on their server(s).('not authorized' icon courtesy of MyArtPlz)
