P06 Eyelashes on an eye

As you draw a lifelike eye, you are challenged by the adversary of portrait artists' natural looking eyelashes. Eyes are the most expressive feature. The shapes and sizes of people's eyes can help identify their gender, age, and cultural origin. In a portrait, the eyes alone can often identify who the person is. Skills presented in this project include: understanding the various facets of an eye; correctly rendering eyelashes; using crosshatching and squirkles to properly depict an iris, pupil, and highlights; and adding shading to the white of an eye.
