Yet another eye

Yeah I know everyone is painting eyes but it’s just a good thing to practice. So here’s my first (digital) attempt:

It’s not a Divinci but it’s ok.

Thanks. I guess I’ll just keep practicing.

instead of painting in each eyelash, paint in the very base of them, and (i assume you’re using photoshop, if not, i assume its pretty easy to translate to the gimp) grab a splotchy brush in the smudge tool, and set the strength to about 30% (play with this, depending on which length you want the lashes) and sweep them out, starting at the back. you might want to do a couple of layers of this to create highlights and layering etc.
