My first Marilyn Monroe portrait, cos every artist needs one right? This one isn't insanely detailed as I had to work from a very low quality reference that I couldn't do much about but I'm pleased with the result, having not drawn blonde hair a while I forgot how difficult and time consuming it was.

First let me say, your work is beautiful.
I know what is like to have people attempt to steal your work. But the watermark across the front seriously detracts from the sharing of the art, and therefore nullifies the whole point of deviant art in the first place. If you want to add something that proves the art is yours, digitally move your signature closer to the edge of the work. There are many people who like to give credit, and share the link back to your art. There are many online galleries that are dedicated to finding and promoting new artists. Many times they will ask for submissions from those that know, or love the art or artist, but not exclusively from the artist themselves. It's a way to promote the unknown and struggling artist. The watermark across the front is like drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

Her hand is not as well drawn as the rest. But I still enjoyed it.
