Eye Study Graphite by Kalgoras Eye Study Graphite by Kalgoras
So I finally finished this piece which I started about 6 months ago heh! I nearly didn't want to as I would do some bits totally differently now, which is why I never normally go back to old drawings.

It's a small picture about 4x5" so the pic you see is about actual size.

I do a lot of portraits with not much eye detail, so thought it would be useful to learn a bit more about the eye structure, which will help future work.

I got permission last year from Kanilorak to use her photo here as a reference, so big thanks to her!

Phenomenal. Did you use a rubber for the white in the iris?

I try not to, it's easier never drawing over the white bits in the first place. :) I do use erasers to lighten things where needed however :D Thanks for looking! ;)
