before the exploits by aramismarron before the exploits by aramismarron
norma jean before the marilyn monoe fame.one of the most exploited star of hollywood.i still haven't watched any of her movies though....

actually i have a personal reason why i draw this one..i'll just thank that person for ignoring me.if it wasn't for that i wont strive to do my best on this piece into this state..

this one allowed me to use....and it really gave me enough spaces for me to use my techniques for the hair..and i also learned that by studying a vintage b/w photos can really help you to achieve great realism.like on the skin it's not so smooth every contrasts contains fine lines w/c creates some fine pores,fine hait effects.:D enjoy!!thanks for the views, comments and faves...LOL

I found one your Marilyn "pencil drawings" at random and left you a compliment with a suggestion, then I went to your gallery and was amazed at what I found. TRADITIONAL GRAPHITE DRAWINGS? My A$$! Stop fooling people with these phony images.

I love your work!! You're just so.. precise and inspiring!! I've got a few questions for you though and I'll appreciate it so much if u could answer them for me: How long those it take you to finish a drawing so detailed such as this one? what size of paper do you usually use? and just one more question- what pencils do you usually use?

were you on a japanese show called "unbeleivable?"
it was on yesterday, and they were talking about an artist that liked marilyn monroe, and how all her work is only done in pencil and it looks real, like a photograph. : )
