course image Paint an Eye: An Intro to Digital Painting
When we see a new environment, the first thing we look at are the eyes in the scene. Whether it be animals or people, we all communicate with eyes first. So imagine how important it is for art and illustration to draw your eyes well!
This course demonstrates the drawing and painting of a human eye using the free digital graphics software GIMP, although you may follow the course with any software. The goal of the course is to understand the fundamentals of creating a good digital painting while also covering fundamental drawing techniques, and with emphasis on understanding how to portray eyes well.
