CSS DEMOS3D Eyeball animation

Date : 13th March 2014

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


Continuing with the 3D demonstrations, this one shows how to produce a realistic looking 3D sphere without it being 3D.

The eyeball is just a flat face with radial gradient shading with the iris and pupil being circles on a 3D transform animation.

The highlights are just overlays on the eyeball.

Safari does not yet support animation on pseudo-elements.

Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.
