Drawing completed 5 November 2016.

Created in Adobe Photoshop, using custom tools to accurately mimic the look and feel of traditional charcoal and chalk on drawing board (generally my preferred medium).

A reference was used -- a photograph I took myself.

When working on an eye closeup, I always find it so hard to capture just the right kind of light within the iris (particularly on the shadow side of the eye).
You have done a marvelous job of capturing this!

Yes, capturing the subtleties in the iris is most of the fun when drawing an eye. :D The funny thing about the iris is it's like a droplet of water or a bowl: the direction of light casts a shadow from the side closer to the source, and lights up the opposite side, while a specular highlight sits above the darker part. It's an interesting interaction of factors.

Thank you so much for taking a look and commenting!:)

Interesting comparison! I actually never compared it's behavior in light to water, but now that you mention it... you are correct! :)

Thanks! For me, that's the thing that digital painting really needs--a good dose of real-world texture. :D
