Graphite drawing (1)

It is currently the night before prom but I am working on a simple eye sketch that I felt was good enough for a blog post! This is my first graphite drawing and it was a lot of fun! I have always struggled to draw any sort of human features, so this eye was quite the challenge. I looked up some reference pictures to see how to shade it properly and sketch the right shape. I had to sketch many other eyes before I was able to complete this one. This was the best looking one by far and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! I definitely want to keep experimenting with human features. I used various shades of Faber Castle graphite pencils (shown next to the drawing) to complete this piece.
