These are my first oil-clay practice eyes, one open, and one closed. I did not look at any references when modeling these eyes. I tried to remember all the details of the eyes, and modeled from memory. Click on any image to enlarge it.
A sphere covered with two slabs is how Philippe Faraut shows the basic structure of the eye. I found this helpful when I saw it. It helps to remember that the eyes are not flat, but round. The eye lids cover a sphere.
