This week's eye sketch


This-week's-eye-sketch

Hello friends! This week I went back to basics and played with my graphites for this eye sketch. I did "cheat" a little by using a black Faber Castell Polychromo coloured pencil for the darkest value (huge time-saver!). 


Here are the supplies I used for this eye sketch (minus the tissue paper I used for blending..*winks*).

I started by lightly sketching the eye with a HB pencil, then I went in with the black coloured pencil to lay down all my dark values. After that I did tonal shading with the 4B and 6B graphite pencils, blending with a tissue paper and the fine-point eraser. I finished by adding in the white highlights with a variety of supplies (different degrees of "whiteness").

P/s: Everybody can draw! Just pick up a pencil and give it a go!

Everyone can draw, but it takes a lot of practice to achieve realism. I'm pretty darn good at trees, but I've never practiced eyeballs and know that I couldn't do this without a lot of practice.
