Eyes

The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.

St. Jerome

Hello dear readers! Hope your week has been going well. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while—the past couple of weeks have been so busy! I am excited to share this one with you, even though eyes are not my specialty. I decided to give them a try anyway—and found that they were actually quite fun to draw (especially the lashes, although they were definitely the hardest part)! I was debating whether or not to color the iris, but eventually decided to leave them black and white. What do you think? Any feedback is welcome!

  1. I really like the black and white; it’s so clean and simple. I know eyes can be a struggle, but here are a few tips I can give:
    Remember to show highlights
    Eyes are not identical
    Eyelashes can be stylized and still look great 🙂
    Not sure if this helps but just thought I’d share!

  2. yellowfuzzyduck, I LOVE these. So mysterious – I enjoy the wide spacing between the eyes. And your comment about the lashes reminds me of some of the repetitive lines in my sketch-a-day projects, e.g., the nettle veins. I tell myself, you just keep doing them and eventually they are done. Hah! I liked the non-colored iris, but I like the effect of the “spokes” of lines in the iris. The eyebrows? Amazing. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Theresa! I really enjoyed drawing them. It was quite satisfying when the lashes were finished—I found it difficult to sketch them exactly the way I wanted! 😊 Wow, nettle veins are hard to draw—great work! Keep those creative juices flowing!
