Eye Tutorial with a Mouse by Saccstry Eye Tutorial with a Mouse by Saccstry
Eye tutorials seem to be all over DA so I thought Id make one of my own 8D. I draw entirely with my laptop mouse (or trackpad/touchpad as some call it), I dont have a tablet. I hope this tutorial is useful for other laptop mouse users (..are there even any others?> <), but since almost everybody on this site seems to have a tablet, I hope it will be useful for you too :D I used to draw all the eye stuff above the skin layer, but once I randomly tried to draw it under the skin layer, I found the result looks nicer and sharper. Experiment with different designs of the iris, its the funnest part to customize, endless possibilities :D
The layers from first to last are sclera, iris, pupil, grey shadow, redness, veins, shines, >skin<, eyelid, eyelashes. This way you can draw all over the place under the skin layer and it will only show through in the eye opening.

The beauty in Saccstry's art is that it isn't your typical "pretty". Its got an abused look in it and that pain makes its more beautiful in its own right.  The fact that she's steps ahead of most of us despite using only a mousepad is even more enthralling.  I can't even do this on paper and judging from your gallery, neither can you. 

The most important thing about art is having an open mind to different ideas. looking at your responses and input, you've got to be what,  14?

Ironically, her art much more detailed and well executed than yours. I don't really think you have the right to call this an ugly eye (which it isn't btw), judging by what your eyes looks like. Meow :3

*takes that shitty opinion of yours and slam-dunks it into the trash* everything's an opinion until you're judging someone/ someones thing in a mean way.  Be respectful please and thanks.
