Pencil Self Portrait: Eyes by markcrilley Pencil Self Portrait: Eyes by markcrilley
Here is the art I created for my latest YouTube video, "Self-Portrait: Eyes." You can view the video here:

I don't think this counts as true photo-realism, but it's about as close as I've ever come to it. Big thanks to those of you who watch my videos and/or read my books!

Best wishes,

Mark

Mark this is solid work. 

It's pretty close to hyper realism, which I personally stopped pursuing and just went with my own style and trying to make it look great.

Fantastic form, contrast, and value structures; Nicely done!

The only way people would recognise this as a drawing is to know who Mark is and if they look reaaaaallllyyy closely at the picture, you can clearly see that it was made with pencil :)
