yes, fantastic detail, very surreal and reminds me of artwork I'd see for A Clockwork Orange or a snipet from Fahrenheit, it has this eloquent beauty

Nice, very creative and imaginative. Reminds me of the Twilight Zone.

the subtle gesture of the hand, the flowers and the falling petals and then the ominous eye

That intricate doilie is mystifying!

shirtflirt

downright shinkicking sweetness
but the colors aren't my favorite
but the art is rad

Definitely your best work. I never thought I would be saying about this about your work--I would wear it.

i love the detail in the pupil. (is that what that is? the pupil?) i skipped eyeball anatomy in highschool. either way... great stuff!

rudra

the pupil is the black center
the doily makes up the iris


i like the concept, but....

the caruncle (inner pink corner) is at a very sharp upward angle, and should be either horizontal or angled slightly down

the arm making the lower lid looks weird - i think it's because in general the lower lid is thin and the upper lid is heavier

and the arm should extend so that it extends the length of the lid, with the cup at the corner of the eye


possibly nit-picky, but anatomy that's close but "off" bothers me

I thought I already comment and score this one...?
weird

This image is soooo detailed, it's out of this world!

outlawpencil

Interesting idea, but it seems a bit overdone. I'd focus on the iris-as-table and drop the eyelid-arm. I think those ideas compete for attention. The perspective seems awkward.

really nice details. great work!

Dali would be proud.
This is definitely my favourite of your designs thus far, but you keep amazing me every 2 to 3 submissions.

Stunning. I really hope this get printed.

leliophelia

beautiful. I really wish it had color, though.

sauterelle

I really wish it looked more natural from far away. It is lovely, though.

i love the surrealism and intricacy in the design, but i don't think it's shirt material.

Just letting you know...
This has to be one of the nicest pieces of vector work I've ever seen.
There is so much detail, and it is so aesthetically pleasing, it's just amazing. I don't know if I'd actually wear it, but I'm giving you the $5 anyway due to how nice this piece is.
