It has always been my ambition to be able to draw people and portraits.  The lesson plan builds up piece by piece, slowly, my kind of game. So here we go ...

Very nice eyes, Kedde :clap: :clap: :clap: Just be very careful in getting the iris absolutely round and the pupil dead center. Even if the photograph has the highlights right in the center of the pupils you must shift them to one side to make them look natural. With them in the center is a dead give-away that a flash has been used.

Thanks Dennis, will do. That's by the way exactly what you are saying in the video, I remembered it when you rephrased it here. Can't wait to get to the point where I put everything together ...

Nicely done Bryndis, just remember to keep the iris and pupil perfectly round, and the pupil centered in the iris. It's a tough lesson.  :tongue:    ;D

 :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

What I love about doing the lessons with Dennis and Nolan are the little gems of info you get that make all the difference to a subject. I have been dabbling in some portraits but really painting the faces loosely and from a distance as that way i could kind of avoid any major detail that would get me into trouble. The shadow inside the eye tip here and the eye lashes being in "families, are little nuggets of info. As well as the parts of the eye i honestly wasnt even seeing before.

Anyways heres my attempts and i did end up getting looser and looser as time went on but I got the just of it and learnt plenty

Good go Trev. So many of us share the same issue when we start the eyes, so here is the easiest way I know to describe it....

Just remember to keep the iris and pupil perfectly round, and the pupil centered in the iris. It's a tough lesson.  :tongue:    ;D

 :clap: :clap: :clap:

You have done well, the eye lashes even in drawings still cause me grief!  :doh:
Cheers, Val

Very well done, Trev  :clap: :clap: :clap: Just be very careful in making the Iris absolutely round for a frontal view. The top right hand one is correct. Also the pupil must be completely in the center of the iris.
