Colorpencil Eye Tutorial by joelle-t27 Colorpencil Eye Tutorial by joelle-t27
Here is the tutorial as promised. It took me a while so hopefully it will be of some help to you all. I know it's a little long but I tried to be as detailed as I possibly can without pulling my hair out. I'm not exactly a very patient person.

If you've got any questions or if any of you would like the larger image of any of the steps, please let me know and I'll be sure to send it to you.

The reference for this again was supplied by :iconloli-rot:.
Please check out her gallery.

Thanks for looking! :D

This is a great tutorial. I too would be interested in a tutorial about drawing skin. It's hard to get the colours right.

Thank you! I hope it'll be helpful to you in some way. :D

As for the eyelashes, you just have to be patient and try to draw them as close to the reference as possible. Draw one eyelash at a time and try not to rush yourself.

so cool but i think you are confusing the terms pupil and iris, iris being the colored part of the eye, upil being the black dot in the middle
