Really fun method to try. I always enjoy an excuse to draw my webcomic Lydia’s eyes

Thanks for uploading this tutorial :) I have painted a few drawing series for eyes using acrylic & watercolor, made some prints and stickers for them.

Thanks for viewing

I used the eye tutorial to give this cactus critter a fabulous gaze!

(I am glad that the hand tutorial prompt had a link to this one, or I would've missed it! I never got this one in my notifications.)
