They say the eyes are the window to the soul
For 20-year-old artist Jose Vegara, he has captured those windows with impecable talent.
Based in South Texas, Jose has created a series of beautiful and hyper-realistic drawings of eyes.
The most mesmerizing aspect of the images are the colorful and luminescent irises which expertly catch the light and appear to shine back at the viewer.
Each eyelash and pore of the skin is meticulously crafted, using only a white gel pen to pick out the highlights.
This kind of detail is incredible for an artist to begin with — no less one so young and determined.
