This was very nice tutorial you made; I liked the basic sketch of the eye on the top right - it was a quick lesson on sketching the eyeball in the skull and the shaping eyelid and eyebrow above it, without taking away from the ACTUAL lesson, which was how to color a fantasy eye.

As far as the main lesson, it was expanded and explained so as to make this easy to understand, and was not condensed into three of four images. (e.g., "Make the line-art. Add the lights and darks of the skin and block in the iris color. Color the eye remembering to add highlights and shadows. Clean up the edges and you're done.") You clearly explained how you work and suggested that we the rest of the artist community might benefit from a similar process.

And, it was helpful that you included images that you had previously made, to show us how the process can be adapted to whatever image we are creating, as well as giving the tutorial some context - these were not random eyes you cooked up just for the sake of the tutorial, they were part of images that many of us have added to our favorites list, the bits that made us say, "Oooooooh, how beautiful!! I love her eyes!"

Excellent work, worth four sets of five stars!

This is probably one of the most easy-to-understand, well-written tutorials I've seen for digital painting.
Sometimes I find it difficult to find step-by-step tutorials like this, but yours is definitely one of the greatest!

I really like how you explained so clearly what you were doing, and what effect it would have on the overall image.
I also love how this tutorial (and your other tutorials as well) have encouraged artists like myself to think "Hey, I can do this!" and actually give it a try.
I'd been wanting to start digital painting for ages, and your tutorial has really helped me (and many others) to be encouraged and excited to start.
