judie, my eyes were off center, too - guess that makes us cockeyed optimists!
Cheers,

Cyril,

Looks like a very interesting lesson - one I need to do.

Love the gleam in your eyes (the painted ones).

I did a horrid job of this lesson.....ended up with one lizard eye!  :2funny:

I shall have to redo all the portrait lessons again. You Cyril, are doing a great job. Just watch to keep the iris perfectly round.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi Doina, looks like the portrait class is coming along.
It might be the photograph but the pupil doesn't look as if it's dead center in the iris or the iris isn't a perfect circle. I did the same thing when I did the class too. The other thing is the lines around the eyelids. There aren't any hard lines in the face, the lines are actually rounded skin so there should be some shading there even if it's fairly narrow. If you darken up the skin tone it will make the shading easier to do and make the light tone inside the lower lid stand out on it's own.
I like the green though very attractive.

Thank you Brian for your comments. The lines around de eyelids, I did not believe that they belong, but when I look at Dennis lesson in PDF, I had the impression that he highlighted them. I will correct. As for the pupil being in the center of the eye, it is. If you consider also the eye part that is under the eyelid, it is smack in the middle. I went back and searched the lesson. Dennis pupil in the eye is in the same location. I'll try to change in another trial, and I'll see the difference. Thanks again, Doina

Doina,

Your second attempt is much improved.

As a girl, I'd want more eye lashes, though.  Guess where that drawing lesson on "flicks" would come in handy.

You are braver than I am for even trying it.

well, here is the blue eye. I had a problem with lesson forwarding. As of last night I finished tow of them, this morning I wanted to go directly where I left off last night. I waited 20 minutes to run and it did not :tickedoff: :tickedoff: Then I went to the PDF, which I was not very fond of the blue eye step instruction :whistle: This is the best I was able to do. I'll send a message to Nolan to see if they are any tricks to go directly to the time you want on the taped lesson. Doina
