I love how the shadow in the iris almost looks like the outline of a person, so, it's almost as if you're looking at your own outline reflecting in the dragon's eye.....
Scary, but awesome!
Thank you, this was actually for a magazine cover, so the fade was deliberate, to allow for copy. It’s easier to read text over a smooth background, than one with too much detail
also, i pretty much looks like that there's a human reflected in the eye
i know that that isn't the case
but yeah, the texture is amazing, it's a lot of detail you put in there!
the eye also looks hella realistic!
wouldn't be wanting to stare this dragon in the eye XD
