Some old saying goes like “The eyes are the window to the soul.” Do you belong to the one who agrees with that? Most likely if you see a hyper realistic art work by Redosking you will believe that the above word of wits is true. Really?
Redosking is a Texas-based graffiti artist whose colored pencil eye drawings can mesmerize anyone who sees his piece. The interesting thing is that hios work is meant to beautifully capture the light. Not only that, their extreme detail is deceptive which surely makes his work look like photographs rather than illustrations.
Because eyes can intricately communicate our emotions like pain and fear that are otherwise diffused with body language. That’s why most artists believe that eyes are a common muse for them. So perhaps the most alluring parts of Redosking’s drawings are his drawings of the irises. And that is not surprising at all.
Using a white gel pen, Redosking usually adds an illusion to his irises. And to make it more lifelike, he includes glints to show the cornea can bounce off the light. Look at one of his creations, the irises are brightly colored with tiny reflections of the world looking back at them.
It evokes you to study every inch of Redosking’s drawings since meticulous attention to detail proves captivating.
