Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “Eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul.” Emerson wasn’t the only one to value the particular intensity of this physical feature. The human eye has been an inspiration to artists for centuries, and even more so, now that we have entered the digital age, where eye close-ups are a common theme (even amongst you, our PicsArtists!).
So, for this Weekly Drawing Project, we decided to take a cue from our community in what appears to be one of the most common objects of artistic inquiry: eyes.
We want to see what imagery, emotions, and mental states you can evoke in your drawings of eyes. Whether or not they’re human ones is entirely up to you. Additionally, whether you decide to draw eyes as you see them or as an abstract representation is also entirely up to you.
Check out our step-by-step tutorial to learn how to create your drawing with PicsArt, and enter your submission with the hashtag #wdpEyes.
