Eye painting by gimgams Eye painting by gimgams
Medium: Acrylic on herbarium mounting paper
My mom randomly gave me a packet of this paper and I didn't think I'd ever use it, but it's extra thick and wonderful for painting on. It doesn't warp when wet, score~

So realistic :O I'm so impressed. Some people really have an amazing talent but they all gain it with a lot of practice and study of other artworks.

Wow, I love this. Can I ask how you created the illusion of the eye being wet?

I'm not really sure how to answer that, it wasn't a trick or anything, I just did a lot of layering and added highlights heh.
