This is my third portrait of a female, the unforgettable Marilyn Monroe. When I started this work I wasn't sure whether to draw extreme detail like pores and every strand of hair, which would have required some level of imagination since the quality of the reference photo was not too good. But while progressing I began to lean more towards creating a visual impression rather than going photo realistic. The impression being a soft, dreamy image. The dimensions at which this work was drawn are height x width = 165 x 126 cm. But since it entirely consists of vectors it can be re-scaled to any desired size without loss of quality.

Very nice. The only thing I'd say is my eyes keep getting drawn to the right of her neck. Has an outline been left on? For some reason it looks like she has one of those waterproof plasters on. Other than that, very well done.
