Monolithic drawing WIP II by nimra Monolithic drawing WIP II by nimra
Monolithic update
Pencil on Illustration Board

Full drawing 30” x 40” this image 7” x 7”

This is the Second element in this drawing, the sky and bulb being the first.

This is a drawing of my step-fathers eye. An eye that’s seventy-eight years old, an eye akin to hammered gold. An eye that’s experienced prisoner of war camps and the death of many comrades. It’s been witness to beating cancer once and now in the dusk of his years to lung cancer. This symbol speaks of strength and vulnerability; it alludes to the end of one journey and the beginning of another.

(On December 5, 2005 my dear step-dad died in my arms, I will miss him so very much, Gods Speed to you Dad, and all my love always). Armin Mersmann

Thanks for looking

This is beyond amazing.
The realism of the eye and of the texture of the skin are remarkable.
But what makes it even more beautiful is that you drew not only an eye, but the look in his eye. The depth of the look. I'm in awe... Hats down to you.
