This was quite fun. I wanted to draw more actors, but Ava Gardner apparently centers herself. See, I'm actually making an effort at backgrounds for once. Do tell me if it's too dark, I can try to fix it.
Hooray! Oh, I hoped you'd like it.
I've actually been wanting to draw something like this for quite a while--you told me once you liked all those old films, and I've kept a list and some reference pictures.
You're very welcome.
