The Ultimate Eye! (WIP) by Paul-Shanghai The Ultimate Eye! (WIP) by Paul-Shanghai
I know its cliché - but everyone needs at least one eye drawing in their gallery - so rather than just do 'another' eye drawing, I thought I would go for the 'Ultimate Eye' drawing :)

I managed to find some excellent A0 Smooth drawing paper in my local Shanghai Art Supply shop ("Marie's Art Shop" - doesn't sound very Chinese eh!) and couldn't wait to draw on it, I have some amazing projects to start, but first I wanted to get this one out of the way - its an eye! But no ordinary eye - this one measure approx. 80 cm by 40 cm, with some of those lashes being a good 30 cm in length :)

I have spend a good 20 hours on this already, and have about another 10 to get it completely finished - thought I would share this WIP with you, as when I finally upload the finished work, it will probably just look like any other ordinary eye on DA - but for now, it is the 'Ultimate Eye' :D:D


I should have mentioned that the reference was paid for (by me :)) from these guys © Valua Vitaly [link]

No, I have never used Canson - my normal portraits are done on Daler Rowney Bristol Board - this however was done on unbranded, sold by the sheet local art supply paper :)

This is spectacular. And, I don't know if I'd say it's cliche at all... I have a couple, and I know artists who are solely eye-drawers.

When I first drew this I thought it would be my only 'eye' but I now understand the appeal - I now have 2 more eyes in my collection!!

Thanks for commenting - appreciate it :)

I think you need to go big to get the detail. Cannot believe I'm just starting to see that now.
Great piece, thanks for sharing and inspiring me
