I used to draw quite a bit. My dad did too.
I also enjoy painting (acrylics and oils). I’ve actually sold some paintings on ebay and have several hanging around my house. I like painting pottery, arts and crafts. I’m generally a creative person 🙂 It keeps my mind focused on something else for a time.
For the past few years, cooking has been my creative outlet. I recently got the urge to draw again and was interested in life-like drawings this time so I checked out some online tutorials. I found a cool tutorial of an eye. I thought it was a good challenge so I gave it a go.
The unshaded/white area on the right of the iris is supposed to be a light reflection to make the eye more life like and wet-looking. Could improve that and add more texture but all I had was my lucky automatic pencil from high school. 🙂 Yes, I still have it.
