Here's a little something I whipped up to show my appreciation for 30,000 pageviews!! (well it's not there exactly, but it's soooo close, it'll be there by the end of the day, so I'm posting this now XD).
Thank you for visiting my page 30,000 times everybody :iconiloveyouplz:
This is how I draw eyes! I draw the iris differently from drawing to drawing depending on what I want, but otherwise this is pretty much always the process. I use SAI for drawing and PS for editing the colors/touch up/adding textures/etc. (Although just SAI was used here.) I hope you find it helpful or interesting to look at :D

I have a tablet now, but here's the eye tutorial that I made back when I used my mouse. I really suggest buying a tablet if you are able to though!

:heart: Eyes drawn using my tutorial :heart:
If you draw an eye with my tutorial, please show me, I'd love to showcase it here!!

I tried this out for a realistic go at it, because my stuff is normally super cartoony, and I really like how it turned out :D I'm still working on the drawing but this was so helpfuuuuul :D

I've been struggling a little with digitally shading eyes and adding the sparkles to make it look a little more real, I'm sure it'll be of big help for me when I pick the tools again. Thank you so much for this. <3

from the red in the eyes I would bet on:
1. a staring contest
2. looking in the sun, because that's why...
3. ...high
4. crying, because the onion does not taste more onionish!!!
5. she has a clod
