love this style in that its broken down to the bare bones minimum compared to your other art of Miss Monroe yet all of the expression on her mind at the time is written so beautifully in her eyes

*i see a little sadness and insecurity in her eyes. but i think, that describes her even better. i mean of course she was the definition of beauty on the surface but deep inside she knew that she wasn't as confident, strong and perfect as everyone expected her to be and that's what finally broke her ( in my opinion) but maybe i'm just overthinking it haha^^ however, you did a great job :)

Very beautiful! I love the strong contrast of the dark black and the bright white. Just an overall wonderful job <3 I also enjoy that you don't finish the outline of her blonde hair, ans instead let it blend with the solid white bg.

This is a beautiful tribute. I personally view Norma Jean as a kindred spirit, and this a wonderfully gorgeous piece for a woman whose beauty was both on the inside and out. Thanks so much for this. R.I.P. beautiful...
