Was inspired by some macro photographs of eyes here on DA, anyone that has known me for even 5 minutes knows I have an odd fascination with eyes. The idea for this is more clear in my head and didn't quite turn out as I had hoped in pencil. BUT when I have more time I hope to do a color vision, that hopefully lives up to the mental image I have.
Oh and yes, tis Balaa pictured in the sketch, thus the odd markings.
The idea for the colored version is something along the lines of a secret garden blooming within the eye(a crown of clovers), thus the presence of the butterflies....The eyes seem so small in relation to the size of our bodies as a whole..and yet to me, there is so much beauty, so much depth and wisdom within the eyes...you can read the story of life within the blooms of the eyes.
