Illustration Friday: Intricate



I've always been fascinated by the intricate wrinkles people get on their faces, especially around their eyes.

  1. Really nice line work and a great assortment of values. And yes, wrinkles are fascinating. Too bad people don't learn to embrace them.

  7. as a person how has those lines showing up around their eyes, I like to think of them as the laugh lines or smile lines, of a happy person. It's better than attributing them to aging.
    Beautiful ink work

  15. It's not at all fussy! it's really beautiful, and the details are admirable. I do think it takes more than just patience to draw like this - you also need to know where to put the lines. By the way, the second guy looks a little bit like Einstein to me (with an afro) :)
