The Inevitable Eye by SvenjaLiv The Inevitable Eye by SvenjaLiv
Sooner or later, it seems, every realism artist draws an eye. So when #Draw-Along posted their May challenge, I surrendered to the inevitable. I'm glad I did. The lashes almost drove me crazy, but it was really cool to see it all come together. I even used a grid, something for which I rarely have the patience. But I figured out how to use the "grid" function in Photoshop, for the reference, which made it a lot easier. Ah, technology.

I love drawing eyes but I've yet to try such a close up. It's tempting though. ;P
I really adore the colors in the iris and those wild lashes. Lovely!

You should give it a go! There are tons of references on dA and it's really fun, it's so satisfying when you lean back and see the effect. :D Thank you!

Oh, I know how that is! I really should stop starting new paintings/drawings, but somehow the ideas just come in too fast...

I have so many ideas I never got around to get down on paper. It's really frustrating at times.
