Commonplaces to ERADICATE drawing Eyes [Tutorial] by Dex91 Commonplaces to ERADICATE drawing Eyes [Tutorial] by Dex91

There are usually many misconceptions in the mind of novice Artists.
How Eyes should be drawn is one of them: there's a wrong mental representation of what an eye is, because of many Commonplaces!
Also, many mental representations are flat... you can fix that by beginning to think 3D.

Let's enrich our mental representations by observing how things actually are, rather than how we idealize and symbolize them!

I must say... Thank you... Thank you so much... Not just for this, but for your other tutorials... But thus one stands out for me because this is a major major major [did I mention major?] problem for me, mostly because [as you have stated I believe] eyes are a large portion of a faces emotion, and I get them wrong time and time again, this tutorial, as with your others, is amazing and unique in the sense that you don't say what to do, and force styles on people, but rather what not to do, and letting creation flow forth from the artists pencil [or wacom tablet as it were] and these are some of the most helpful tutorials I have ever seen [ever thought of giving lessons?] once again, thank you o great and artistically talented sir, I look forward to more :D
