Eye Of The Beholder by bulletinthegun Eye Of The Beholder by bulletinthegun
Stock image from ~grace-stock

Medium: HB graphite, mechinal pencil.
Paper: White, smooth drawing paper.
Time: About 15 hours.

I have ALWAYS wanted to draw a really close up eye and as soon as I found this amazing piece of stock I knew this was the eye. I cropped the original image to get it to where I wanted it to be.

Again my scanner screwed up big time, I wish I could show you want the really one looks like. I am really so proud of this one. Inspiration came from *signalbox but their work is so mcuh better than mine.

This is absolutly amazing...
For the eyelashes at the bottom especially, how do you keep such fine whiter lines like you have?
Do you go over it with a kneadable eraser orr...shade around it very carefully, lol??
