Eye See You by DesertViper Eye See You by DesertViper
I probably lost some vision staring at this for the last week and a half! Glad its done :)

The Challenge
The biggest challenge here was to keep it as photo realistic as possible, but at the same time, keeping that vector art look to it. The other challenge was to put in as much detail as possible, which is something I tend to do anyway!

The Outcome
I really enjoyed making this! Really happy with the end results, I think it looks great :D Main tools I used was the pen tool, gradients, and 10%~40% opacity.

Resources
Special thanks to Katanaz-stock for letting me use Anatomy Stock 1 as the reference image! If you haven't checked their stock out yet, I highly suggest you do! :D

Enjoy! Feel free to comment, share your thoughts!

EDIT: What a surprise! Thank you very much for the DD lemontea And thank you all for the many comments and favs :heart:

Beautiful rendering on the eye! :P

(I'm not so sure about the eyebrow - but I see that was out of focus on the ref)
