Eye... by rhyshaug Eye... by rhyshaug
That eye again. That's probably all I'm going to do, started to get bored with it. I like to obsess about the subtle details of faces and skin, all the little creases and highlights. Whenever I draw a face, I think about all the details I failed to include, and want to do better next time. Anyway, drawn with Faber-Castell color-pencils.

You do a really, really good job on eyelids and eyelashes! What's your secret? :) (I need to work on that)

For the very fine details of eyes and eyelashes, I will frequently use a fine-tip pen, even if the rest of the drawing is pencil. Eyelashes are incredibly thin, so a 0.05 millimeter pen can draw them more effectively than a pencil. They're also useful for the details in the iris; I drew the pupil with ink, that's why the edges are so much cleaner than in other parts of the drawing, which are pencil.

Also, when I'm drawing something, I try to see it in terms of light and shadow; Where is the light source? What places will be highlighted? What places will be in a pool of darkness?

I'll try to think of some better advice, I'm not a very good teacher I'm afraid. :P

Thank you! I think drawings of people that include TOO much realistic detail can come across as slightly grotesque. But I still liked the challenge.
