-envy emeralds glow evergreen-

The first of what (I hope!) is a series.... I'm trying out some more realism stuff but I rather like the amount of detail a focused picture like this allows. :) Yes, I very much like green eyes...

Done entirely in Photoshop 7.0

Oh my GOD. This won't mean a thing to you but I have to let you know this.

In 2005 I was on Gaia online. I went to the pitcure posts and areanas when they first came out. I saw this beautiful picture. It was of an eye green and glistening. I of course gave it a 10. I also saved that picture and printed it out. Put it in a picture frame and placed it on my desk to remind me each day when I drew what I was working toward. That one picture. To this day I have the old faded and crumpled piece of paper in my desk drawer.

Today I decided to open a new deviant art. I wanted to start over again. Finally I am in a point in my life that I can work on my art with out the people around me critisizing me for it. I saw a few tutorials by you and was paying attention to them and saving them. Then I decided to look at all your work. Closer and closer I came to thinking that this may be the same artist. I never believed it though. Suddenly after a few of the other pictures brought me to thinking it may actually be the same person suddenly I came across this one picture. The same on that I have held close all these years. You are an inspireation and I thank you. It's not that you excell where other artists are nothing. It was this one picture. It was the emotion and vibrance that led me to cgi. Thank you.

Especially since you did it in Photoshop, which of course i have been trying to master--not working out very well. HOW did you do this?

awesome! loved how you did it with the highlights, colors and all that pizazz!

i also love green eyes! i don't exactly now why other people think if you like/have green eyes, you're envious? just because there's a green-eyed monster, right? oh well! i'm still browsing through your gallery!

bye! :D :P
