EDM #117 Round

Round was this week's challenge, I love contemplating what subject I will use in the challenges but this one was not easy. I planned on marbles, but Jana did them so well I was intimidated - I thought about a reflecting ball my mother-in-law just bought me but settled on an eye - my eye, I took a closeup and studied all the variations - I am blue eyed, but there are all sorts of green and gold specs as well as multiple blue shades - so here EYE am.

Eye LOVE it! What a beautiful eye and so amazingly drawn. I was surprised and delighted to see your comment about my marbles! I've actually done them again to try to get more what I was going for -- freshness and transparency...like you got with your lovely eyeball! It's great.

I love the variation of colour that you have used in your eye.

A very piercing eye! Great job. I like the detail of the pupil.
