They say she had purple eyes by crayonmaniac They say she had purple eyes by crayonmaniac
Liz Taylor for my best DA friend John, the talented artist :iconartworksaustralia:

This was very difficult, I hope she looks a bit like Liz, likenesses will never be my forte!

Used 2 references, one for the dress (I found my own technique for painting lace) and one for the face

Thank you all for you sweet support :heart:
PLEASE FULL VIEW FOR ALL MY LITTLE DETAILS THANKS

Youre welcome! You are really talented. I Wish to learn how to paint my "own" art. I always paint from photos which i keep as a reference through the entire process.
I love to watch amazing paintings like yours. They give me the inspiration to keep trying. Im gonna start sketching this summer to make my own linearts to use as references :)

C'est plus être méticuleux, c'est carrément de la dévotion, ça! Mais je sais que Liz est une de tes icônes. Quand on aime, on ne compte pas.

C'est vrai que je me suis attardé aux yeux et au visage, j'ai honteusement négligé le détail de la dentelle :ashamed: . J'ose pas imaginer combien d'heures tu as pu passer là-dessus. Le résultat est parfait.

My favourite actress... after Marilyn. But woaw, was Liz as gorgeous as you rendered her? ;o))
You have this unique ability to capture the sensuality of women in all your works. Liz was unique, so is your art.
Love the lace as well, and with that colour in her eyes it drives me "deep in purple". Great work as always!

omg marilyn is my all time favorite too, one day, one day if I feel confident enough I will paint Marilyn but for doing my ultimate idol I still have to crack up the old skills a bit
I love that you see that my art is sensual, i am a very sensual woman too, i guess it oozes in my art, i love feminine beauty for painings
thank you my friend

Lovely Liz, gorgeous lady, and what a talent. It is a good likeness! I knew her on sight. More than just the features, though, the expression is very her, it captures that subtle sense that she's a strong-minded woman who gets what she wants.

Your lace technique is gorgeous, I love the texture and translucence of it. And the pearls - perfect as always! The out of focus background is a nice touch too - appropriate, of course any camera must focus on Liz!
