Elizabeth Taylor 2 colored pen by Ethan-Carl Elizabeth Taylor 2 colored pen by Ethan-Carl
Cleopatra (1963) was a film that many feel was under par for the money spent and the talent of the actress staring. I disagree. I love the movie, the whole way through, with no exceptions.
Colored pencil, freehand, based on a photograph by an unknown photographer.
Like the hair and makeup?

Actually she almost looks like a cross between Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren in your drawing !
Not a critisism, as it is a superb drawing, just an observation on my part, (hope you won't be offended).

Lovely! I saw the thumbnail nad was like "ELIZABETH TAYLOR". I've never seen Cleopatra but I ADORE old movies and I adore giant...which carrys my train of thought to James Dean, which is completley off topic so I'll be quiet. (It's finals week I'm braindead)

Amazing likeness, i love the gold and the hair. Wonderful

Oh, it isn't so off topic...Liz and Jimmy were in Giant together, one of the MOST dull movies I have ever seen. It was good, though, just about half too long. :)

I do agree that Giant seems to drag on forever...but theres some superb acting stuffed in there, so its worth watching in my opinion..but of course I'm always biased where James Dean is involved...

Wow, that's great. I always imagined her eyes being more violet, but maybe I was wrong? It's really gorgeous. I could never do that would me pencils.

Her eyes didn't photograph color-true always. In this photo, actually, her eyes were a very cool blue grey; I made the violet a little more obvious, but I guess the fable of her eyes is a bit exagerated. They are not blue or purple, really, but more of a deep cobalt violet.
