Ochi by Pencil-Stencil Ochi by Pencil-Stencil
My friends, Martina, Tamara and Irena. I've often been thinking about wanting to draw my friends  i often turn into a silent creep and blankly stare at them, studying their faces.

Since i don't have time to do full portraits of all of the girls that i'd like to draw, i decided to go with something simple, yet effective - a series of minimalistic eye drawings. This was a quick and simple project done in a night in one go, to vent and have some drawing fun. I know eyes are done to death but many of you will agree that they're the most fun part of the face to draw. Not to mention that you can portray someone's expression, feeling and likeness just through the eyes.

I love this kind of set-of-eyes concepts to death :iconsweetjesusdogplz: They always look so classy and interesting. I remember last ones I saw were just lined in a vertical line, but this touch you made with separating those into "boxes" is just splendid. I can imagine this to be put in frame on the wall, I'd die to have such awesomeness on my wall. :love: I'm so in love with it. OK, call me crazy GoT obsessed girl, but Tamara's eyes look so much like Danny's. Such a beauty :iconyesyoucanplz: It's officially my new one of the most fave works of yours now, seriously :iconlovely-plz:

P.S. And yes, lucky your friends are :iconmiradafijaplz:

thanks so much honey :iconyesyoucanplz:

i need to get myself some sort of frames, i just might frame some of my drawings :XD:
hmm, well she doesn't really have eyes like Daenerys, maybe it just looks so on this eye closeup, but i have to tell you that she has a piercing blue eye color. in a certain light her eyes are unrealistically blue :XD:

really, so simple yet one of your favs? :iconyesyoucanplz:

haha :XD: don't wanna say anything.

Well that's what I've been talking about :D I don't know how she looks like in real life, but the way you portrayed her here she looks 90% like Danny. Believe me, I've studied her face good enough to state that :D

Yes, the beauty of simplicity! :la: A piece doesn't have to be elaborate in order to be magnificent. I know you'll laugh on me now, but I liked it so much that I suggested it for a DD :iconmingplz: The CV is in for a lot of reading consisting of my enthusiastic poops. :rofl:

Ludacris? :iconseriouslyfaceplz: If I knew such adjective perhaps I would have replied smth. :D Would or wouldn't, but I think it's brilliant. It not only demonstrates perfect skill, but I love the story behind it. Your friends should be forever happy :iconangrynoplz:

but it is an adjective :D perhaps it's not an official word, more like slang (or is it sleng? :icongeniusnotplz: ) but basically it means coo coo haha :rofl:

ah, thank you so much honey :iconyesyoucanplz::iconyesyoucanplz: :heart:

are you getting somewhere by telling my friends should be forever happy? because.. well.. i can't tell you :iconloolfaceplz:

"...minimalistic eye drawings..." :iconyoukiddingmeplz:

Your friends have beautiful eyes and they're quite lucky to have such a talented artist for a friend.

I like how each lady has a distinctive look and expression, and it's absolutely magnificent that you were able to capture this with only the eyes. It says a lot about your abilities.

I think it's adorable that you lament about phone cameras and scanners giving bad results. It not as though anyone notices by the time you're finished.
