Sophia Loren, another icon in my B&W glamour series!

Sheesh, she has such an incredibly difficult face to paint, it is quite characteristic and if you are one pixel off, she is not Sophia at all :-(
Well the maniac in me painted 3 different faces, I am still not satisfied but she has to do now! Based on a portrait when she was really very young!
The dress is based on a dress by Dior and the shoes are Jimmy Shoo, so it is an eclectic painting but I am sure Sophia could have seen herself in this outfit.

This one is for Brian :iconveiz: I hope he will love his Sophia since he suggested her as my next icon. Brian, show this to Flori too, I am so sure she would look tremendous in this dress ;-)

Thanks for all comments and faving and oh! I think in B&W I am more realistic than in colors, who would have thought that :faint:

In the same glamour series : Ava Gardner

Reference and bad paintings here :rofl:

I haven't seen this yet
shame on me because Crayon, it is stunning

as always, the face and hair are gorgeous and I recognized her
shoes_ lovely^^^where can i buy them?
the only thing that looks strange to me are the breasts.
it looks like one is overlapping the other. never seen that with breasts...

thank you for your comment
the breast, no reference, kind of bugged me too and so after reading you (and i always pay lots of attention to the comments of my kind friends), i googled cleavage and looked at hundreds of references and my way of paiting them is possible if the boobs are big enough, the woman stands slightly askew, not many references that way but some are there so i am relieved i do not have to correct it but thanks, these kind of comments are always appreciated

seems as I must google it too if it's correct, or just try in front of the mirror, because otherwise I will draw it wrong the next time^^
thank you for correcting me

You show the way and many will follow and I apparently can work with more realism in B&W, that is an asset for me
