Hyperrealistic Color Pencil Drawings of Eyes

There's something mesmerizing about eyes that we just can't seem to get enough of and now AtomiccircuS, aka Dino Tomic, can be added to our growing list of artists that render hyperrealistic drawings of the entrancing orbs. The Croatia-born, Norway-based digital, tattoo, and fine artist has been exploring the colorful contours of the human eye with color pencils. Each methodical piece has managed to capture everything from the reflection of one's own eyelashes in the iris to the red veins in the sclera (the white part of the eye). The artist insists, “No secrets here, just layers and layers of color tricking your brain in[to] thinking this is real.”
