Eye Splatter by Kamakru Eye Splatter by Kamakru
So about a year ago I did this Ptarmigan by Kamakru using a splatter/salt effect with watercolors (really awesome and fun, highly recommended!).
Then, sometime in the past couple months I came across :iconpixiecold: who does these amazing pieces with eyes and just portraits in general - go check her out, good stuff!

So taking that inspiration with my current techniques, I did this piece as a Christmas gift for a good friend of mine who has always loved eyes (she drew them all the time in class).
It's a little different for me but I really enjoyed doing it! I had fun blowing around the paint and adding the salt like I was casting a spell (I've been watching Merlin) xD

9x12 140 lb cold press watercolor paper
Watercolors and white gel pen

Wow! Amazing! How did you create the spatter and iris of the eye?!

The splatter is made by loading the brush with water and paint and applying it in a 'puddle' on the paper at the center of the splatter. Then it's just blown around. The rest is just with paintbrush =]
