*XRlS' rendition of ~KarmensPhotos' beautiful photograph "Green Eyes" is not only a loyal statement to the original source of inspiration, but also an exceptionally captivating, vibrant and technically accomplished work of art.

The clever use of white is, in my opinion, the main contributing feature to the impact of this drawing, next to the hypnotizing mixture of blues and greens in the eyes. Another noteworthy aspect is the way the softness of the original photo is maintained here, albeit conveyed with a more lively emotion, and of course, the artist's inevitable touch of personality.

My only negative remark would go to the faint white whisker stroke noticeable slightly above the center as it simply doesn't seem to go well with the overall flow of the drawing. Despite being a visible detail on the original shot (although much less distracting), I think this drawing would've been better off without it.

All in all, a fantastic contribution to the Traditional Art gallery! :) Well done! :clap:
