Keira Knightley by Hongmin Keira Knightley by Hongmin
I have been so lazy that this piece took me almost 6 weeks to finish.. i don't know too much about her .. i know she's very skinny..:teddy: but this ref photo gave me the urge to draw her bcz she just looked like a goddess.. the pearl ornament( i don't know the proper name for it) on her hair was a big challenge and took days.. the background was done only with 3B mechanical pencil and the shine on the left is the glare from the light since i took the digital photo of it.. the size is 11 inch by 16 inch and drawn on the vellum bristol board..Thank you!

I understand but doesn't it cause pressure to the eye sight. If I start doing like this ...after sometime my sight gets blurred. Don't you face any problem doing so tiny shades and shapes?

This is simply gorgeous. How did you avoid pencil strokes when filling in the background that dark with a 3B mechanical pencil?

Stunning detail! Where did you get the ref photo. I've been trying to google it, but can't find it. You're absolutely right in wanting to draw this and now I want to give it a shot as well.. Though I can't imagine mine will ever have the detail and emotion yours has.
