Just an Eye... Crying by Ametystical Just an Eye... Crying by Ametystical
The old piece was made in 2012, April 6th and I finished the new one in September 30th.


I was almost giving up of doing this 'cause I started drawing this in the last week of the contest and everything went wrong for me: the weather was dark (because of the rain) and I couldn't see rightly, half of my house was without electricity, I accidentally crumpled the paper and had to make another drawing, I spilled water on my drawing, and after all, I got sick! Holy crap, I will never let things to do at the last moment again! :angered:

But although it was not that fun to do, I've learned a lot of things about eyes and now I feel more confident to draw them.

You're Welcome! :iconluvluvplz:

Hey can you check out my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Haha.
Thanks so much! :painter: :jedi:

Thank you :hug:

Well, it's just a matter of study good eye photos and (a lot of) patience. In my eye drawings I make the upper part of the iris darker and the lower part lighter; I also always do strong and sharp highlight(s) next to de pupil; this really gives a nice bright effect to the iris.

The shading is a process of shading with pencil, smudge then add highlights in the parts needed with the eraser and repeat this till you get satisfied - I repeated this process a lot to get the pattern of the iris in the second eye.


It's hard to explain with just words, but I hope this helps somehow :)
