i came up with a method i like for painting eyes and thought i would share.

i start with a raw head.

i use water base hobby acrylic [testors] to paint the iris, using a fine brush. i let the original outlilne of the iris remain, it's easier than trying to paint my own circle. Use a medium dark color; i used blue.

Next i used light grey to paint +'s on the iris. Then i painted x 's on top of that, so there is a *pattern. You don't have to be perfect here; Lord knows i'm not!

Then i use india ink to put a spot in the center for the pupil. I suppose black paint would also work.

Finally i coat the entire eye with clear nail polish.

I hope you find this tutorial useful!
