An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. - Gandhi

I've been obsessed with aliens lately.  


I colored this mandala several times both using gradients and solid colors.  I went with the solid colors. I didn't like how the middle of my mandala was looking so I created a petal by cropping two overlapping circles, then I used the transform effect to make a flower.  I expanded the flower shape and placed in the center of my mandala (my eye).  I made the alien eye with the pen tool.  I used gradients on the background and eye/lid shading/highlighting.  

Fun class. Enjoyed learning a bit more about using gradients. Thanks Aerie!
