good explanations, very interesting, good worksheets
Excellent class! I was taught to draw a traditional eye/iris/pupil. I had no idea there were so many different variations! Thanks for opening my eyes (haha) to 100s of options. It will come in handy for character studies! And I LOVE seeing you draw in timelapse. It really helps me understand better by seeing the live techniques.
