The Eye by MJP67 The Eye by MJP67
This is a graphite sketch or drawing of the eye ([link]) of one of the most beautiful women on DA - . I got this image from her stock account

It took me about 4 hours give or take using graphite pencils 2H through 6B. I'm very proud of this. I know it isn't exact and my technique sucks but it is probably the best sketch I have done to date. I have only been drawing since September so I'm very happy. I hope I did justice to her eye. Once I'm a bit more confident with my skills, I might attempt one of her full facial shots. She has the most amazing features and smooth skin. Give her a visit.

Any critique on how I might have improved this drawing would be much appreciated. I could really use the help

Cool. I believe that if you add more contrast, as in, the darker values darker and the lighter values lighter, you will get an even better flow. The main problem here is that the whole picture seems to tend towards the same tone, with only a few parts really sticking out (the iris). I specially liked the eye lashes on the lower eye lid.

Great shadows and light in your drawing!

I like the 'different' perspective in eye 'coz there is no very common...

Congratulations... I love it, yeah, more 'coz you use H pencil... I like a lot this pencil...
