This week your drill is to create the best eye you've ever created, then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #HumanEye.

This week is all about human anatomy. At some point in every digital artists journey you challenge yourself to create an eye. You start off thinking it's going to be easy, but before long you realise that they are seriously complicated to look good. This drill is all about research, you can't create a good human eye without truly understanding how an eye works - so make sure you don't skip this step. We are looking for realism this week, not toony eyes.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.

#WeeklyDrills014 -- Human Eye
For my first weekly drills, I focused on the sculpting & topology of the eye area. I also wanted to convey some “character” even though it was a close-up as the musculature around the eye has plenty of intricacies that I wanted to practice on.
