How-To: Owl Eye and Feathers

When I doodle, I enjoy drawing animal eyes with either fur or scales surrounding them. My go-to animal is an owl, and surprisingly can be pretty easy to draw. This how-to will explain how I lay down my subject and stylize it. I used Prismacolor Turquoise Graphite Pencils, Premier Illustration Markers (005 and 05 in Brown) and the Premier Brush|Fine Art Markers (in a range of brown-green).

An Innovative Inspiration: Lauren Boulden

20-year-old art student, Lauren Boulden has built a broad portfolio including a plethora of Prismacolor products like the Premier Colored Pencils and Charcoal Pencils to name a few. Growing up  in Midlothian (about 20 minutes from Chicago), her art imbibes a certain urban influence as she hones her skill to one day become a tattoo artist. Tapping into the digital Prismacolor Gallery and community, she hoped to receive a well-rounded critique of her art, as well as build a strong network of fellow artists, but she hadn’t planned on catching our attention.
