I've been practicing dagger strokes, dots, lines, blending and finally took a shot at the eye for the first time. Maybe okay for a first shot. I find the eyelashes to be by far the hardest part, getting those dagger strokes the right size, width, etc. Iris is hard too. Next time I try this, I'm going to see if I can work on that mottled look in the iris. Maybe using figure 8 strokes? Any input is welcome.
