Thanks, it's all smoke and mirrors my friend.
A recommendation I've heard for painting the center of the eyes is to paint them as a line down the center and then cleaning up the edges. Supposedly this makes for good looking eyes. I lack the fine brush cntrol to make lines so I settle for dots and then clean up the edges. The Iris should be half covered by the eyelid the way I do eyes. Though it's easy to screw up which forces me to start all over again. On less patient days I settle for whatever I can get.
