:w00t: my first celebrity portrait...! :giggle: one thing- i hate hair. i hate my hair, i hate drawing hair. it's terrible.. or maybe it's just me who envies everybody else's hair and how others can draw hair so perfectly.

This looks awesome! I love how you did the hair... personally I find that blonde hair is the hardest to draw, because so many details are visible, wheras in dark hair, a lot of the details tend to get lost.

Love the facial expression... the composition and balance of the picture is well handled, and the hair IS just fine. Overall, a really nice piece!

really?? i don't think it came out in this portrait.. but here's a tip which i always always use: when you draw hair let your hand totally free, draw fast strokes with real quick movements of your wrist and hand.. hair is wild and free, always keep that in mind ;) hope it will be useful

She's beautiful, XD. I really like how you did the hair, especially the lower right half near her chin. I love the way women used to curl their hair like that in the 50s, and I think you portrayed it well. The only critique I have is mainly her lips, MM had trademark lips and I think you drew them a bit too small.

Oh this is so pretty! Her hair looks good, but mouth should be a little bit bigger... Or if I look it again it's just right sized.. Oh I can't decide so I just say this is wonderful <3

The hair looks nice. The only problem with it is it doesn't look loose. It's stiff. *shrug* Love your drawings, though.

you're actually kinda right. wavy hair is damn hard to draw. i think i'll never try curly hair. or maybe in 50 years =P
