also something which makes eyes usually look kinda weird is wrong diameters, most of the times people do them too big, however in your case as you stylize them it's not that much of an issue. So if you want to do it more real, a diameter between 2.4 and 2.5cm is pretty much the average, but most of the times i end up using one of 2.6cm as it looks better from my experience
AAA, Dammnit this makes soo much sence and I feel soo vindicated for the last three to four weeks of confusion and study and frustration I've been going through.
when one tries to give the eyes the right shape, and keep them looking straight foreward, the result is hours of frustration. its relatable to those childs toys where you had to put the shapes in the right hole... if your missing all the info you just CANT make it work.
Thank you so much I'm going to print that image out and put it on the reference billboard next to my desk
Edit: One question I have and I've only found one image that attempts to describe this. but in the process of determining the shape of the eye. one has to consider how much of the eye is covered but the socket, and how deeply it sits.
This is the image I found after much searching. but is this usually accurate?
This is also important to defining the eye size in relation to the rest of the face, as all the proportional measurements are done in eyes as a master unit
