First of all I want to say how amazingly real this looks. When I first saw this I thought it was a close up picture of someone's eye and when I looked at in more detail I was astonished to see it was all done in pencil. The skin on the eyelid is so well detailed and the highlights around the eye really makes the picture look real. Great job on this seriously! I'll make sure to check out the rest of your gallery. I'd like some tips on how you do this, to get the realism going, It's my favorite thing to do. :)

truly amazing! it does look like a picture even when i zoomed in.. and the most "real" -better saying "live" part- are the arterioles.. :)
tears are the most common symbol of sadness and you've used a simple yet brilliant concept using it.. that's why I gave you 4.5 stars instead of 5..
the only part I can critique on is the eyelash, although they were stroked very well, but i think adding some dotted points that mascara usually leaves on them will make it look like real for 100% instead of 99.9%.. which I think is the current reality rating of this remarkable piece..;)
again.. it's a very well done piece and shows how great skilled you truly are..;)
