Stare death in the eye by acjub Stare death in the eye by acjub
So here is another eye ATC card
Small card that is 2,5" x 3,5" (6,4 x 8,9 cm).

I had a lot of fun doing this card!

It's first drawn in graphite and ink, then painted with watercolours, coloured with coloured penncils and then some white gel pen for highlights :la:

I hope you guys like it!

Love It.
My only concern (no better word) is the color around the eye. If it's make-up, it's a nice job. If it's natural, to dark. If (s)he was supposed to look tired wouldn't a purple have been better?

But i still love it :)

Missing 55 letters so PRAISE!
I love the iris. But i do have a thing for green eyes. It looks like a regular eye, but with a skull in it. The bloodshot on the eyes looks like some I've seen in pictures, but they could have gone in longer.

Overall - A fantastic job you can be very proud of.

First things first, I love this. I have never critqued a drawing before, only photography, but this is so life like and realistic that I had to critque it. Now down to the critque, your picture does a wonderful job of asking questions and giving the viewers answers. The shading around the eye not only gave it dimension, but also brought a shadowy-make up feel to it. Is that the look you were going for? If so, it was an excellent technique! At first I found the concept of looking death in the eye a little clique, but as you look at the picture you lose the meaning of it and start feeling the emotions of it. Overall an excellent photo filled with passion and feeling. Marvelous.

I love all of your eyes drawing, but this one is definietly my favorite! I love the look of fear and all the veining details you did. The skull over the eye adds even more of a story to it and really makes you wonder what the subject is so terrified of. All the shine on the eye looks fantastic as well:heart:

I love this. Even for just a drawing of an eye the details or amazing and the addition of the skull really adds a lot of mystery to it. The textures of the eye is so well done.
