I think her face is very hard to draw, but you nailed her perfectly! :clap: The detail on the clothing is once again breathtaking!

Wow. Amazingly realistic, as always. I love the bandanna/scarf around her neck.

Love, love, love it! I was going through my list of deviation-notifications thinking, haven't seen alot that really stand out--and then, BAM, this. Amazing, stellar...And Kiera Knightly is cool too. :D I think she's sort of hard to capture/dipict with art, but you did it! Lovely job.

I agree. I have tried to draw her a few times before and this is the first time I've been happy with the results.

Thank you for your wonderful comment and the favourite.

Nice! She's a very classy lady. I'm working on a pic of her now using an ausprey ad she did and a close up of her on the cover of the Sunday Express. She's so gorgeous and fun to draw. Love the shading on her jeans and the clean, fresh quality this pic has. Nice detailing! Keep it up!

started on a new keira pic. The one I put up isn't really looking like her. My new pic is much nicer. It's from a spread she did for Vogue Italy.

Thank you, but I do think you should keep it on your to do list. It is a challenging reference, but very satisfying.

Oh, I love it! That looks like it was a tricky outfit to draw - you managed it really well, though. Terrific likeness, as well, and as always I love your pencil technique. :clap:

I have to say that I love this reference photo, and you did a fantastic capture of it. I love her shirt, I want one. :laughing:

It was the shirt that particularly made me want to try this.
However, I regret trying to draw so many parallel lines! That'll teach me to think I can draw fabrics.
I love the colours on the reference. I only wish I was brave enough to try colour myself.

You really should give color a go, you never know until you try. You did great with that little spot of red in your other drawing, now just try a little more. :)

You did a very nice job. I noticed that the two halves of her face (left and right) are not the same width though.

I'm lovin' it! (More than McD's)

I had a word with her plastic surgeon. We agreed he needed to try harder in future, but as he was sitting near the fire, he melted.

wow! awesome! great job on the clothes! :D

probably because I've been watching a lot of Star Wars lately, at first glance her eyes look a bit like padme's. But those two actresses look kinda similar anyway.

There is more than a passing similarity.
