Colorful Tiger Eye by Lucky978 Colorful Tiger Eye by Lucky978
Colorful tiger eye design commission :) ONLY FOR THE COMMISSIONER'S USE
This one was a lot of fun! Especially getting all of those details into a little space.  
The commissioner had a very painterly image that he wished for me to make more realistic, and I thought to myself....wow. that's the complete opposite of what I am normally asked to do.  It was actually quite fun!

This looks very cool~ We really love all the colors you got into the iris~ Also really love the markings around the eye, how did you get it to be so faded~?

I love eyes and this one is just amazing from all of the colors that you managed to make flow so perfectly (to give a semblance of realism) to the tiger fur around it.  It's  fairly hard to have only that much work around the eye and have it clear what animal that it's supposed to be.  but with your work I could tell right away.
