Comments by the artist

I was sketching a drawing of an eye and I noticed it looked a bit like a bird. I refined the idea on paper then scanned it into the computer. I imported the pencil drawing into Adobe Illustrator as a background layer template, this helped guide me when creating the blended vector shapes on top. I played around with the colours for quite a while and ended up with a yellow eye because it was more bird-like.

I'm slowly learning Illustrator - it's so different to Corel Draw (which I've used for many years) but some things (like layers) are similar to Photoshop which I absolutely love. I'm really happy with the end result.
