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.

You're back! So glad you've been drawing. These eyes are really good. I really like the top eye. You got that shadow of the eyelid and the highlight looks true. You're doing really well with your values. Great job PamYla!

I really like the expression in both eyes.

Excellent eyes—very expressive! The reflections are wonderful (both drawn and written).

Sorry to hear about the electricity, but sounds like lemonade is flowing from the lemons.

Thanks for the nice comment, too.

Nice expressive eyes, especially the pupils. Well done!

Thankyou for visiting and commenting on my blog. Your eyes drawings are really nice, and you have captured all the detail so well. I think pencil drawings really are my favourite, using HB grade. Look forward to seeing more.
