How to Draw Marilyn Monroe Easy

Artist: Dawn / January 6, 2015

Step 1.

The first thing you will do is draw the head and facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Use the facial guidelines to define the shape of Marilyn's face along with the long, thick swoop from her curled hair.

Step 3.

Use the facial guidelines to draw in Marilyn's upper eye lids. Along with the eyelids draw in some thick, curly lashes. The lining should be thick too for her signature eye-lining makeup.

Step 4.

Draw the eyebrows and then color them in too. Finish drawing Marilyn Monroe's eyes, then sketch in her cute button nose and famous mole.

Step 5.

Continue to use the facial guidelines to draw in Marilyn's mouth which is open and in a sensual state. Add the teeth and some shading as well.

Step 6.

Before we tackle Marilyn's hair, you need to draw the ears and then add some detailing inside the ears. Once that is done you can sketch out the hairstyle which is short curled waves.

Step 7.

Lastly, sketch out the shape of her long neck, then draw in her shoulders. Erase those guidelines and mistakes then you're done.

Step 8.

When you're done drawing Marilyn Monroe easy you can add some color and show off your drawing skills to everyone you know.

Description: I will be uploading two women from entertainment history today who are both recognized as being one of Hollywood's most beautiful women of all time. I will start with this lesson on how to draw Marilyn Monroe easy, step by step. Because her face keeps popping up almost everywhere I go, I thought more folks would like to teach themselves how to draw and what better face to draw first than Marilyn Monroe's. I have an older tutorial on Dragoart, and to be honest I'm not very found of the tut because of my newbie coloring skills. I love how this drawing ended up looking like a digital painting. Who says drawing Marilyn Monroe was hard? Not anymore because now you can do it easy!
