Green Eye

It's St. Patrick's day today, and I am not wearing green, and I am not going out as well(eventhough my car needs a wash desperately). I don't think I will get pinched even if I go out, being a 6'2 tall Asian guy can be pretty intimidating, and I always have excuse of being cultural ignorant or something like that :) But I don't want to get cyber-pinched too, so I have decided to draw something green.
Mixed media on Moleskine Sketchbook (5.5 x 3.5")


I've also included some steps of how it got from just outlines to semi-realism state. Hope you like them and HAPPY SAINT PADDY'S DAY.

P.S.: Don't pinch me, or I'll get really angry, and you won't like it when I am angry....- Hulk(before he turns green that is) ^^

  1. You are 6'2"?! I could have sworn that some time ago you wrote about being a small Asian guy in redneck country Louisiana. Maybe I'm nuts. Anyway, you have just avoided the cyber-pinch, you Hulk of a guy you. Great strings of color in that eye! Frightening the image of the Hulk with that eye. All right..I ramble..and I don't want to piss you off.

    1. small Asian guy? :) I must be saying something like it's not easy to locate anyone taller than me even in Louisiana.
      I can't turn green even if I want to Dan. Red however, one beer will do the job ;)

  2. Hello Alex,
    I think a lot of people will be green with envy when they see this and will have to keep an eye on you ;-)
    You certainly reached a good realist state with this one!

  3. I been staying put too, nothing green for me today other than my blanket (I think Im coming down with a cold, so it kept me nice and warm)... 6'2" I can see why no one wish to give the pinching a go : )

    But what the heck, Im a viking and we like to live on the edge... So here we go *pinch*

    Great drawing, the eye lashes look really good and the intense look, wonder what she is seeing.
    Happy St Pattys day and now I go and hide

      Being tall does have its own advantages, people usually don't fool around with taller dudes.

    1. It's a mixture of all kinds of green, some yellow, some blue, some purple... I can't remember really, I just kinda jumbled everything all at once and see how it would go. I am glad it worked :) Thanks Jane

  13. the "wetness" and reflection of this drawing are just extraordinary...as is your portraiture in general.
