God, this is gorgeous! I took life drawing last quarter at my college, and we had a similar assignment.
If I may offer some advice, try mixing other colors in with the skin for shading/lighting, rather than just lighter and darker shades of the "local" (normal) color. There are SO many shades of red, green, blue, and purple in skin that our brain doesn't pick up on right away. If you just want a purely natural look, try adding a bit of red/pink at thinner parts of the skin, where the blood would peek out.

And for a bit of color theory, did you know that shadows are the opposite colors of the highlights? Meaning, if you have a yellow light, the shadows may be slightly violet. Just something to keep in mind--it's really fun to play with. I did a piece second quarter with really insanely exaggerated colors and it was gorgeous.

Man though, these are just amazing. The one at the left is my favorite. I love how each of the irises are painted differently. Eyes are kind of like snowflakes, huh? :>

Thank you :heart: skin tutorials say same thing, but I just don't know how to mix colors so I get right result :shrug: Really? O.o I need to check color theory :O I like second one the most, also it was easier, because skin is monochrome lol. snowflakes?

Basically, just add in and smudge colors (maybe on a different layer at first) at a really low opacity. They're there, but should be barely noticeable.

Oh--by snowflakes I meant they're all different. :) No person's eyes are like someone else's.

My favourite is the brown one :) It's so warm, sweet and feminine...but also the middle one. I think it looks like a peacock.
