Awesome job, and I love particularly the detail of the hair! Must have been a long and rather painstaking process. Well done!! :-D

You're welcome again. Haha lots of agains. Your work just terrifies me with how realistic it is. I laughed at the comment you wrote about the Mairlyn Monroe picture being called a fake.

You've got the lips down to a tee, beautiful eyelashes and a great texture to the hair.



...the drawings not bad either!

Lol thank you so much! I so glad you mentioned the lips! In the reference they were chapped, and I wasn't brave enough to make them smoother, so I drew them how they were. It was something I was worried about.

Thanks again :D

oooo really nice job on the shadowing on the hair caused by the waves/curls!!!
Overall great shading- but I think the one dark shadow covers too much of her nose

Thank you very much! :D

Though about the shadow on her nose, that's how it was in the reference, and I only vary from the reference if the background is unsuitable somehow.

Oooh, I love this! =) The hair is so lovely and soft and shiny!
I agree, she is *dreadfully* hard to draw, and a lot of the pictures you find aren't of very good quality. I was so pleased when I found the reference I used, and even so it nearly drove me nuts! ;)
But anyway, you can definately be proud of this- It looks just like her, very glamourous!

Awww thank you so much! Nice to hear from a fellow Rita drawer. She was definitely under-photographed!

Isn't odd how are features are weird, but together they work so well?

My pleasure! =)
I wouldn't say she was underphotographed, exactly, I personally have over 70 pictures of her, but so many of them are so small that they can't be used for much other than pose or costume references. ;)
It is odd, as you say, very confusing when you come to try and sketch them out!

Well I think she was under photographed for a movie star... I mean I could *easily* find 100 good quality references of Marilyn Monroe, but I can't say the same for Rita. Maybe it's because she's not as popular Marilyn, but she definitely wasn't photographed as much as her or Audrey. I want to get this book on her... It looks like the only decent one for images! 300+ it says!

Very amazing...the shading, and the detail are beautifully done. When I look at something I always look for a way to give constructive criticism...because I like that on my work. The only thing I can really even find is the lips...something about them looks hard...if that makes since...like chapped or scaly? But then again it could have just been the reference photo, and I had to look long and hard to find that! lol. Great work :+fav:

Yeah I noticed that about her lips in the reference. It had taken me so long to find references, as well as the fact that I had many failed attempts of drawing her, that I stuck to this reference and daren't change anything!

I don't want to sound like I can't take criticism, because I I'd like to think I can, but I'm pretty certain that's how it was in the reference. I don't have it to scan, and I went through like 80 image pages on yahoo to find the reference because I am so sure it is accurate.

Anyway, thank you very much :)
