Keira Knightley 01 by Flowertree-elf Keira Knightley 01 by Flowertree-elf
So...here is my next drawing. :aww:
Worked on this about total 5-6 hours or so (or maybe it was more...can't remember how I even came up with those numbers in the first place ^^;).
The hardest part was definitely the chain. But not drawing it was unacceptable. :)
I know the hairdo isn’t exactly the same as on the photo. I decided to get a bit creative, because copying every single line would have literally killed me. ...No, just kidding. =p
The most enjoyable part was drawing her face.
Added those squirmy lines to the background so it wouldn’t look to blank.

Here is the picture of Keira that I used – [link]

Tools:
2B, 5H and HB pencils
Ruler
A4 paper sheet

Anyway, hope you all like it and again, please-please comment the piece.

Very beautiful. I don't favorite drawings of Keira very much for she's been a little overused. But this is an awesome drawing. Congratulations.

This is gorgeous, great job :clap: I love the swirls, they add a little something. The only thing that's bothering me is that she seems very outlined, I think you could use some more line variation.

:iconflowertree-elf:
Flowertree-elf Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010
Thanks! :)
Yeah, I know. The outline of her face and shoulder...I'm not a big fan of it ether, but if these lines weren't there, she would disappear into the background altogether.
By “line variation”, do you mean like making the outline thinner in some parts and bolder in others?! (That it wouldn’t look the same way, but it's still there.)

NinthLife Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah that's exactly what I mean. Although disappearing into the background sounds fun! :giggle: You could try maybe using a blending stump in some places instead of a pencil, then you will get very soft lines and they won't pop so much. or just add tiny bit of shading in the background along the lines, so you have contrast there. But it looks amazing as it is, I was just making some unwanted suggestions lol.

Unfortunately, when I was drawing this piece, I didn't have blending stumps jet. :) But you're right!
About the shading, I wanted to do exactly what you said, but it got a bit messy with that and was afraid to go further. (Ruined the spot around the neck and yaw line with that =P)
And I'm very happy, that you did make these suggestions. :D I definitely like getting feedback like this. LoL
So thanks again!

the line around her nose mouth, her whole face, was that deliberate?
