the eyes! by duhi the eyes! by duhi
This thing i did for a study of human skin and eyes. Is a reproduction of a very lovely picture on deviantart by ~marielliott

thus the credit doesn't go to me ... but to her...

Anyway i started this off by thinking i would try and replicate the eyes with Staedtlars (colour pencils) and then i felt like doing the skin around the eyes... and then i had started off doing the entire portrait, before my knowledge. I got tired when it came around to doing the hair though (it was one of those to-hell-with-this-shit moments). I messed it up a bit as u can clearly see... but then again the objective was not to replicate the entire thing (it is just something that i ended up doing unconsciously), but u'r free to throw in ur criticism nevertheless.

btw freckles are much much more tougher in colour than in pencil shading.... and i'm hating how i have a red incorrect underline for the word 'colour'

I know our intentions always seem to get clouded and carried away in a storm when a passion is electrified. I tend to end up with something totally different than my minds eye first conjured. But anyway this is about this fabulous piece, stunning, I love the eyes as well perfect, but I also love the blends in the tones and freckles, I love the edges of this as well not running off the page, like 'I mus fill evry space for it to be complete. Thank you for letting the world see this. I recommend this be featured please! Oh and yes the colour thing it's dang spelt COLOUR!!!!
