Ista (eye) - Realistic Eye Drawing by Denise A. Wells

This is a drawing of a Native American friend of mine Adam Corbett.....I nicknamed him Ista because of his awesome eyes!


The Native American word for eye is Ista.

I used a #2 pencil on paper to draw this out on regular printer paper. I use a kneaded eraser to remove graphite around the iris and give it more definition and depth. The shaders I use for my drawings are all homemade, I make shaders with drawing paper, sketchbook paper and even newspapers that are rolled into a cone shape and taped. I make them large to cover more area and small to make very tiny details. I couldn't afford to buy them when I first really got into serious art when I was in high school so I have always made them myself. As for the kneaded eraser I used the same one for well over 10 years before I could buy a new one.


**I dedicate this drawing to my High School Art teacher Miss West who taught me how to draw Ista's accurately and with this detail. Thank You Rose!!

I was happy that my fren Ista was so patient when I took like 100 photographs of his eyes. Thanks Adam! =)
