Iris by Astrikos Iris by Astrikos
A random colorful eye.
Of some creature. Not sure what. Maybe some kind of canine? Mixed with some rainbow bird?
It was enjoyable to create.
Faber Castell- Polychromos.
Burnished to get the shiny look.

Due to having part bird in DNA, there is no fur texture in the outer rim. Since it's part mammal, it has a larger eye rim.

Oh also the eye shape is interesting. And there is a random indigo shadow in there. :shakefist:
The fur grows funny just because i wanted it too. :meow:

I hope you like the colors.

I want to write a tutorial, would any of you want that?

Nice work, the eye looks stunningly lifelike!
The colors are balanced very nicely, and the general shape of the eye is pretty good. :nod:

In my opinion, I feel like the black line around the eye is a bit thick. I might've misunderstood the description, but I think either thinning it out or making the lines crisper (at present, they kind of blend into the surrounding yellow) would help.
Personally, I'd also smooth the coloring in the iris as well, but that's your choice. :)

Overall, this is very good! The differently-colored feathers really make this piece bright and psychedelic!

Oh and by the way yellow blend is supposed to be there. Fur blends and overlaps. :nod:

I'm just explaining the reasons and vision behind the piece. :)

Thank you.

Look at a dogs eye. Very thick line. Almost extreme. Seriously it's like :wow:

And you don't think it's smooth? I spent like an hour blending the piece over and over. There is no grain left there.
That's my choice? :giggle: indeed. :lol:

And thanks. And feathers? It's mostly fur. :hmm:
Anyways thank you.

Wow, gorgeous colours. The eye itself has such depth, especially with that light glare. :)

I'm holding my breath, waiting for it to blink. :iconcatstareplz:

The details are so sublime, and you have to look at that shine in the eyes!
And the eye itself... It's so wonderful... :iconwantplz:
