EDM #33--Draw an Eye

Here is my challenge for EDM #33 Draw an Eye. This morning when I got up there was no electricity because of the storms that had come through overnight. The house was such a peaceful quietness that was sooo very calming. There was no music playing (my favorite way to draw) or the television on for noise. Absent also were the sounds of the refrigerator or the heater coming back to life to contend with.

There was nothing but complete stillness and quiet. I drew two different eyes and wanted to also add a matching pair. I am pleased with what I have completed in these 2 single eyes. It isn't easy to find good pictures of eyes in magazines that have enough clarity and detail to work from. I got these from one of my books.

Thank you for looking, I also look forward to your comments. The graphite pencils I used were H,B, and 2B. I'm working on various face parts and hope to put them together to make a face..well errr draw from someone's face that is lol.

Weekend Doodle #3--Different pencils

Here are some of the better doodles that I did yesterday. It was a very relaxing day and I hadn't done anything in a while. All of a sudden I heard myself say..."Self, you should go get a new sketchbook" and then I said outloud "Ok Self, sounds good to me!" and off I went lol. I hope that my dry season has come to a close. Although I carry my sketchbook everywhere I go, I just didnt get the urge to do any doodling let along any challenges in EDM..I hope to get back into those soon..I also got a new book too...I'm a bad gurl with a busted budget lol!

Thanks for looking, I worked with various graphite leads, B, 2B, 4B and an HB pencil..Im working on it :)
