Feature movie illustration 10 – Little Big Marilyn

If you are an artist and you dig movies, you are going to end up with multiple Marilyns in your repertoire. This is more focused on line work. I wanted to depict her in a way I haven’t seen. Something melancholy but not judgmental.

I used a combination of brushes to get a washed out, water heavy look without resulting to watercolor. I am very happy with the lips and eyes. I’m not sure what, but the likeness isn’t quite there. The image hits what I intended. Maybe a melancholy Marilyn is not fitting her at all?
