The Eyes of Jimmy Stewart by DJCoulz The Eyes of Jimmy Stewart by DJCoulz
Original title, aye? Felt sick of feeling un-productive, and I wanted to work on something more serious, but I didn't wanna spend all night on it.

And since you guys seem to like my eye's so much, I figured I might as well draw just eyes for once. So here's Jimmy Stewart's eyes. He has very homely doey kind of eyes. They are very pretty, plus I'm jealous of those eye lashes!

I like the picture, but I find pictures of just eyes so over done and boring. I mean, eyes are probably the one thing I think I have down closest to 100%, and I try my best to show all the emotion of a person with just their eyes, but I like a face to go with it. Cause if the eyes I draw, draw you to the eyes before the rest of the face then I've succeeded, but if I only draw eyes, your forced to only look at the eyes, and the emotional experience I want you to take away from my pictures is lost.

I dunno if that made sense. But here's Jimmy Stewart's eyes, that's all!

Proud to say no textures or fancy brushes used~

Oh I am working on another portrait or two, I know it's been a while, but please be patient with me, my new portraits are much better than my previous ones, and the detail work will outshine the old!

XD He's such a challenge to draw, his features are all so particular, I have no problem drawing people like Fonda, but man Jimmy is a whole new challenge.

Gorgeous. Completely gorgeous. Every time I look at your work I always can't seem to find the right words, but I've been an avid follower and admirer of your stuff! :heart::heart: I just love the way you can see the wetness in his eyes and the careful direction of each hair on his brow!

Its makes sense completely! Still, This is amazing! At the risk of repeating myself, I LOVE the way you do eyes XD You put so much life and feeling into them. A full face is is definitely always helpful when trying to express certain emotions, but I truly envy your ability to express so much with only a pair of eyes. ....Plus I love being able to see your technique up close for ideas on how to improve my own art XD Beautiful as always! Keep it up!

I've been trying to improve my own portrait drawing techniques.. Maybe you can critique my latest drawing (happens to be Jimmy) a little?
