Marilyn Monroe as "The Girl" in the 1955 movie The Seven Year Itch
(her character is never given a proper name in the movie or the credits; she's simply referred to as "The Girl" in the credits)
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:
My Marilyn Monroe Gallery
Information about this drawing:
Media = Adobe Illustrator CS4Features / tools used in Illustrator:
pen tool; gradient; gradient mesh; pathfinder (divide); transparency panel
The final drawing was approximately 850 by 1634 pixels, which is pretty big, so I took it into Photoshop to make it smaller (I'm not sure how to go about that in Illustrator without having to unlock art on different layers and so forth, and I didn't want that hassle).
The reference photo is on my computer's hard drive. I've not found a site that has the same photo in a large format. I did find this one small photo: small version of reference photo
Edit. Larger Reference photo at 'All Posters'
I wanted to give this drawing a name like "Marilyn Monroe As The Girl In The Seven Year Itch," but Deviant Art has put a limit on the number of characters for titles, I guess.
