Photoshop manip of the iris of my crayola drawing: [link]
I drew the eye with crayon, photographed it and posted it in the link above. I then selected the iris only and put it in a separate file in photoshop. I used the liquify tool so that it was a perfect circle and added a slight shadow to the corners, liquified the pupil to form a heart and adjusted the colors with a 30% gradient overlay and brought out the white in the highlights. Added a layer of stars as an extra touch. The reason I manipulated the photo is for a circle shaped necklace I am making with just the iris. But then after I was done I thought, hmmm wonder what it would look like if I put the iris back in the original photo. This was the result.
Side note: Keep the cleavage jokes to yourself, don't waste your time because I will delete them! Unless you're a home schooled per-pubescent 14 year old teen that just discovered the internet for the first time through this photo, there's really nothing you haven't seen here before! Plus, there are plenty much more revealing images on dA to keep you entertained. I really don't seen the big deal. But I digress...
These are the exact dimensions of the photo without a crop as it was taken. Instead of cropping the photo, i left the entire photo as it was taken to show perspective of what I could see as the photo was literally being taken from my face. I opened up the TimerCam app on my iPhone, set it for 5 seconds, positioned myself and my hands as you see here and snapped the photo with my top lip. Took a few tries before I got this shot
