Beautifully done Kris, one suggestion on the first eye, you could try to round the eye on the left side it is a bit off comming to the bottom of the lid.  Love the lashes on the 2 nd one   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Kris,

I want my eyes (real ones, not painted ones) to look as pretty as the one on the top right.  Her eye looks like a model's eye.  So pretty.

Thank you Danielle, Mea and Val for the suggestions. I reviewed the older postings of this lesson and saw a lot of things I did wrong. Very helpful. I will work on the rounding of the eyes.

Kris,  very well done except for the iris. :clap: :clap: :clap: It is very important that you keep the iris absolutely round and also the pupil must be in the very center of the iris O0

Thank you Dennis. I will remember that. I enjoyed the lesson . I have not done portraits at all so I was happy with my first attempts thanks to you.

Danielle,

Nice eyes.  You have learned the eye lesson well.  I want to try that when I get back home.

 :thankyou: Mea and Val, thank you for your encouragement and lovely comments.
  I think I still need to make the skin tone a bit darker though, they all look fair skin.
