Through an ordinary eye by Trichardsen Through an ordinary eye by Trichardsen
Drawn over 21 days, was really tricky to get the right feel of the texture as too smooth made it look weird since its so close up.
A bit different than I normaly shade, but think it ended up looking quite cool.

4h-9xxb, Strathmore 300 vellum, rough side.
Pencil eraser

This is an amazing piece of artwork. You can see the vision clearly, and the contrast between black and white is prudent. Moreover, the image the eyes create is evident, and the eyes tell a sense of emotion as well as a type of story that you can relate to. Overall creativity is inconceivable.

The technique is strong, as this has a numerous amount of ways that the artist shades. The blur of the eyelashes in the distant is effective in showing the perspective. In addition, the highlights on the eyelashes are well done, as it is very hard to do due to the fact of how thin the hair strands are.Overall technique is perfect, and the impact on a watcher is "over the top."

Keep it up!

Sincerely, Kennethkangaroo.

This piece of art is amazing. Brilliant. You can clearly see what it is. You can see the wetness of the eye almost as if it was shining or the person was crying.
I have simply never seen anything like this before. It is very original. When you see this picture its almost as if you feel sad. It also refers to "through the artists eye".
I could not say that i have ever seen a better piece of artwork. Whatever technique you used it seems to have worked extremely well.
In any situation I would hands down rate this piece of art at five stars.

Very nice detail..and the concept gives a very nice atmosphere to the this drawing.

Charles Hawthorne once said.."The world is waiting for men with vision - it is not interested in mere pictures."
The drawing brings this quote to life.

Well done friend!
