Eye by PurpleStrawberry4 Eye by PurpleStrawberry4
Helllllo, I thought I would try something slightly different, and decided to do an eye detail. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and I really enjoyed doing something different.

I used a beautiful stock image by :iconthe-dragoness: which can be found here [link] as my reference.

It took about 7 or 8 hours I imagine, I used a 2B mech pencil and an 8B Derwent Graphic only for this one, as well as a variety of rubbers, blending tools and also a white gel pen for some of the highlights.

I do hope you like it :3

Oh my ... this one is lovely :heart:

The thing that first captured me in this pic is the smoothness of everything. I really like the gentle shading that seems to be quite uniform but still has contrasts, if you know what I mean. Especially the iris looks awesome with the contrasts between the light and the dark parts that show but still manages to look not too sharp.

The reflections are also very well-drawn, and I think that using a white gel pen was a very good idea. It gives life to the drawing.

Very good.
A few suggestions: TRy making the reflections just a tad sharper, it'll look more photographic. Also, the gel-pen highlights are very obvious, I could see them before I read the description. You can try dabbing a finger or Q-tip on the edges to blend them in. Lastly, a more realistic skin texture (the little cracks that run the skin) would be nice.

Thank you for the suggestions. The gel pen highlights were an experiment, I read on someone else's deviation about using them, so I thought I would give it a go, I'll try your suggestions on my next drawing. :3
