So i thought id finally start some realistic paintings/ illustrations to add to my website and portfolio. I see a lot of job posts that require some realistic styles but since i dont have current drawings i prevented myself from applying. So why not start now? My first practice is Ms. Marilyn Monroe. It came out nice. I mean of course there's more i can add but i just left it at that so i can start on another one. I copied a picture i found on the internet.. NO TRRACING tho! Just compare the two and you can tell i did it on my own :) Im gonna do a few of these kinds of paintings so i can add more to my too cartoony portfolio! Comments and critiques would be greatly appreciated!
