Wow, the iris is amazing! You really have captured the eye. Plus I love the slight details, like having the eyelashes reflected back into the eye itself. Things like that are subtle, but really make it realistic. Gorgeous work
Wow....just...wow...I thought this was an actual photo, and then as I read on, realized, it's charcoal? Wow. I'm extremely impressed!! You definitely did not overlook any details, and I think that's really what makes this picture! It's all in the details! Beautiful!! Keep it up!!
