Painting Practice

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!

I think it's really good. I have done some portraits from photos and there are some good and some bad things about not being able to work with the real thing. All in all, very good work...Im impressed with all you work...including your baking. I too love to bake and feel cooking and baking are just another form of art.

Thank you! I really appreciate you taking the time to check my art (and baking) out! I should be doing more of these so i should get better.... O_O
