What is it about eyes that are so fascinating? Regardless of the medium they're depicted in, whether it be a drawing, painting, or photo, these tiny orbs that give us the gift of sight also, ironically, provide a feast for the eyes. When executed properly, eyes in art can evoke emotions and provide inspiration. It is especially stimulating to see the works of brilliant artists like Jasper Branse and Brian Schmalzriedt who are able to produce such captivating, hyperrealistic renditions of these supposed windows to the soul with a few simple tools—pencils, erasers, tissues, charcoal, and a lot of skill.
