Marilyn Diagonal Portrait by Pablito-Matito Marilyn Diagonal Portrait by Pablito-Matito
Portrait of Marilyn Monroe.
This is a drawing made with pencils watercolors and oil pastels on paper.
To draw this picture I was inspired to the photographic cover of the book "Film-Star Portraits of the fifties" Edited and with an introduction by John Kobal.

Thanks Tom, I'm really happy to know that you appreciate my work. :woohoo:

The technique I use is simpler than it looks:
I traced the contours and textures with Watercolor pencils then I apply the pastels pulverized using cotton balls.

Photo books offer several suggestions for drawing nice portraits and that book is really interesting ;).
Lately I try to create original portraits taking ideas from more photos simultaneously, is a bit more difficult but most rewarding.
