A crappy eye tutorial, because I have NO TIME to BREATHE, let alone draw presents for everyone. X( I'm still working on my giant gift from LAST Christmas.
ANYWAY, yeah, that's how I draw my eyes. The only real problem with my eyes - they only look good small, normally. Occasionally I can make a good big eye.
And just in case you're wondering about layers, here's how mine normally goes:
Line Art Layer
Highlight Layer *Lumi & Shade*
>Iris Shading Layer *Clipping Group*
Iris (Color) Layer
Yup, it takes me SIX LAYERS to draw an eye. But that's just because I'm so accident prone, I prefer to do it bit-by-bit.
