**UPDATED** Rescanned for a better quaility. Now it looks just like the actual drawing.

Sorry for my lack of reply/comment lately. I had a bad cold right after my birthday so I spent a few days doing nothing but sleeping.. It's a miracle that I managed to finish up this drawing..

I saw this photo of Keira Knightley from her official site (it's a promo still from King Arthur) and wanted to draw it straight away for a few reasons. First I loved that she look so natural, so down to earth. I know she's a pretty girl but I prefer the less glamourous shot like this to some over-airbrushing photoshoots.

And then there're snow and fur which fit my drawing exercise scheme perfectly. Not to mention the winter theme compliments the chilling weather in Australia right now (though there's no snow in my city). They were quite fun to do at first but then I got lazy towards the end (nothing new there) but I'm quite happy with the drawing overall. I might try to tidy up a few parts though.

**And for those who've requested, there'll be a tutorial for dark hair based on this drawing**

Pencil on A4.

This drawing is beautiful. In it's own ways, it expresses everything so well, that it seems more than perfection.
