How to draw realistic eyes

Beth says:
My doll's eyes don't look very lifelike - they're kind of dull. Can you give me some hints on how to draw better eyes?

Besides the old mantra, practice makes perfect I would study photographs of eyes in magazines. That will help with shape and color. You could also take a look at this tutorial (even though it is for computer art) and it will give you some great ideas. One of the things to remember is that our eyes are a multitude of colors and shades. Even the white of the eyes isn't really white.

Best of luck,
