UPDATE: WOW! I'm so excited at the response to this piece!! Thank you to each and every one of you who has viewed, favorited, watched and commented! I will try my best to reply to everyone. There will definitely be more to come! :D Wanted to come up with some type of design for business cards for myself as a Tattoo Artist and came up with this. Inspired by M.C. Escher's Eye of Death mixed with my own aesthetic. Referenced my own eye.

Done with Staeder Mars Lumograph graphite pencils, Hb to 8b and Dr. Ph Martins watercolors on bristol board.

This piece is completely mind boggling, you've got the vibrant color that just catches peoples eyes and then you've got extremely talented delicate detail on the eye and eyelid and eyebrow.

I love the vision and mental impact of this, and the color swirls the dark look to it together.
I don't know about the skull though inside the eye, because I think a better reflection could be featured in the eye, but it does complete this piece overall.

I rated the originality four stars out of five because there is other pieces similar to this one, not because this piece was not excellent or anything.

Overall, excellent, excellent work! I look forward to seeing more work by you and seeing this piece featured on a business card of yours.

This is really beautiful. The use of vibrant colors mixed with the warm grey tones of the pencil makes this really stand out. You've really mastered the use of pencils to make dark/light contrast and the overall shape of the eye looks really good.

The iris seems a bit unregular and slightly blurry at the lower part, but except for that I got nothing bad to say. I don't think much to say about the composition, it's rather clean and straight forward and it works rather well for this.

I would love to see this concept taken up from the paper and put into some kind of costume. Maybe I'll use this piece as an inspiration for this years halloween costume :)

Oh I love it! It captures all my favorite themes with the skull for death, the eye of feeling, the darkness of evil, and the colors of interpretation tears, brilliant idea and concept!
