I am working on trying to understand the eyes better. This is the example from Philippe Faraut's first video. Make a sphere, and two slabs of clay.
Put one slab of clay over the top of the sphere, and the other slab of clay in the front of the sphere.
The eyeball is a sphere with these eyelids formed over it. The eyelids follow the shape of the sphere.
The eye is round in two ways. This exercise is to understand the curvature of the eye.
The first diagram shows the rule of thirds. The highest and lowest parts of the eye are at about the one third points on the eye, and they are opposite of each other on a diagonal. The tearduct is lower than the outside corner of the eye.
The second diagram shows that the upper eyelid protrudes further out than the lower eyelid by about a 15 degree angle.
