Eye Splash......2 by Paul-Shanghai Eye Splash......2 by Paul-Shanghai
I was never very happy with my previous attempt at this concept Eye Splash by Paul-Shanghai It remains the single most difficult thing I have attempted, and the results was not as I would have liked - so......I always wanted to either redraw the same picture or try another version at some time.  

I have had the brilliant photomanip from :iconreznor70: in my 'ToDo' list for months, and felt it was time to give it a go :) 

Not sure if it is better, but it was certainly a more satisfying drawing experience  :)

Drawn on Bristol Board Smooth A3 paper with a 4B Mechanical Pencil, 4H, HB and 8B traditional pencils, bit of tissue paper, mono zero eraser and about 20 hours :D

That is very cool! I love how you drew the splash in the diameter of the cornea. The reflection of the eyebrows are even better, considering you imagined the adjustment of their "bending" to the water's reflection. :D Very good, and I am watching you now! :)

Thanks for the comment and the watch :) It was a great drawing to do - intense but an enjoyable experience- sometimes that shows through in the final piece, I hope it does in this case :)

Yeah I know that one, I have most of my work under the bed lying flat. But its a shame that they dont see the light once they are finished.

I am impressed, you have such a calm hand. I wouldnt get it half as decent. XD
Love it, in fact most of your gallery.

I fear that i probably get a no as answer. but.... *g*
Would you be interested in a little drawing challange for the fun of it?
I am trying to collect drawings of my main character from other people. and i think
that my char might give you a little challange because she's not all that human looking.

Thanks for the kind comment.  Not sure if I can help with drawing your character - I have a big backlog of pictures I am drawing, I may be free in a month or two?
