Part 2: Eye

After doing the tomatoes we'll continue with nothing less than a human eye. A 25 to 35 year old male's eye to be 'exact', or at least that is what I had in mind when I painted it.

I wanted to paint an eye because it's something that interest me and because it fitted the topic of this lesson perfect.
The eyes are definitely the most important feature in our face, and it smart to practice drawing them. The eyes will often be the center of attention in any painting with characters and the should be given extra attention when painted, too. The image below is the eye we'll be painting in this lesson.

The finished painting and the sketch.

Blocks of Colors

The 'palette' with the main colors I've used in the eye painting

I only used the Airbrush tool for these first steps. Start filling in your sketch with color C1 from the 'palette'. Leave some space open around the sketch lines.

The sketch with the main skin color

Use the Airbrush at a high opacity as we don't want the gray background to mix with the skin colors. Continue with other colors from the 'palette', you can probably figure out which by looking at the image below. In this step be sure to cover the sketch lines completely.
