Dilate by imaginee Dilate by imaginee
This eye will be part of a series I am beginning called "Body Language". Drawing something as delicate as the iris took a lot of time, I had to put down light layers and blend over and over again to give it that soft, moist realistic look.
While drawing I began seeing an optical illusion, the pupil looked to be dilating, which in this case was very fitting. :D

15 x 20 inches (actual drawing is 13x7.5) - Nielsen Bainbridge Illustration board - 3b Mechanical Pencil - 3b, b, h graphite - plain tissue and blending stumps - 10 days
