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
dont know how many hours... roughly 6-7? 31cm x 30cm caran d'ache colouring pencils OH! this is my first time using caran d'ache as well, and on bristol board extra smooth :}
You should try straightening the shape of the iris a bit so its a perfect circle, and making lashes a bit 'curvier' at the end of the eye, or longer than the others. I LOVE the colors in this, the patterns in the iris are so detailed
