Why don't you draw/paint eyes anymore?
Due to religious reasons and personal beliefs I no longer draw, paint or illustrate eyes into my work. I am Muslim and in Islam we are taught to be careful when drawing people, faces or living things since creating human beings can be linked to idolatry or competing with God. I have chosen to stop recreating eyes because they are known to bring life or souls into objects, something I don't have any intent in doing. Many of my pieces will have limited facial features and I try avoid copying living human beings directly.
Though I do not know all the ruling on creating art in my religion, I aim to do my best and remain intentional with the information that I do know. Islam is followed and interpreted differently by many so as a Muslim artist, I know my intentions and have decided to make this decision for my work.
I hope that you can respect it.
