The insight "Beauty is bought by judgment of the eye." first appeared in Greek literature in the 3rd century BC.  Hopefully you will agree these Best of selections meet that criteria.

Inktober2015 - Day 03 - Robot health by brunoces Inktober2015 - Day 03 - Robot health   by brunoces
A modern day depiction of the Pinocchio story - if  inanimate objects could take on human characteristics  we hope it's brunoces'  iron robot  who longs for a warm :heart:

The artist creates this popular animal image using perfect line and color to convey the icy concept with a drop away background  to enhance the detail of the horse's head - and those eyes ...  perfection.

Cool Round Sunglasses by TheMiceArt  Cool round sunglasses  by TheMiceArt
The perfect depiction of cool - " ….an aesthetic standard in artistic expression and physical appearance" - in the rendering of this  portrait.  :clap:
'I'm not idle. Just busy thinking about you.' by thevisualilliterate  'I'm not idle. Just busy thinking about you   by thevisualilliterate
