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: Subject
= Marilyn Monroe
I am striving for some amount of realism in my digital paintings, but not a sense of hyper-realism nor photo-realism, which is why you will not usually see things such as pores on the skin of people I paint.
In other words, it is not
my goal or intent for a viewer to look at my digital paintings and wonder, "Whoa, is this a painting or a photo?!" Media for this painting
= Adobe Photoshop CS4
I tried finding freebie hair type brushes on the internet that I could use, but I don't think they worked too well (or not for my style or manner of working at least; they might work great for you or your purposes).
I wound up only using part of one freebie brush, on the right side by Marilyn's ear. (Credit for that: lpdragonfly - free hair brush set
I also used one brush from a different freebie hair brush set for the background blob shapes. Credit for that: Shadow Stock
