Rainbow Eye by SalmaAshraf Rainbow Eye by SalmaAshraf
EDIT: ok i was getting annoyed at this drawing so i changed a few things
- i forgot to draw the reflection of the eyelashes in the iris, so i did that
- made the eyelashes darker (and i think i may have added a few little ones)
- made the eye a little more circular
- added my RAINBOW font signature thingy

i never expected this to get so many favs so quickly either, so thanks so much everyone!!

i love drawing eyes, and i love drawing in rainbow colours, so i thought, WHY HAVENT I DRAW A PROPER RAINBOW EYE YET
(actually it was more like: hmm i wanna draw another eye.. hmm i wanna draw my own this time.. in colouring pencils.. oh i'll do it in rainbow!)

i find that it looks a bit.. odd looking
but i expected that because this is one of those very rare moments that i dont try and exactly copy a reference
i loosely used my own eye as a reference (so no grid method!)
but because i don't like the details in my own eye, i sometimes used *Nelleke's iris to help ;P

dont know how many hours... roughly 6-7?
