It's probably because I'm a bit obsessed with eyes, I doodle them everywhere and anywhere and all the time, so when I paint a portrait, I focus on the eyes. To think of it, I rarely do portraits of someone whose eyes are closed or for some reason not visible.
see? I said you had a thing. now you've probably aquired some eye-drawing magic from all the practice you've done. :3 I on the other hand am shit with eyes. I mean, it's ridiculous how I can name all the stuctures of an eye, even in latin (i'm a disappointing medschool student ^^') but once I try drawing it it becomes a monster... even if I manage to do something half-normal with the left eye, i cannot do the same on the right side to save my life.
really? well, you didn't miss much. today i think i failed anatomy second time in a row. ^^' it's nothing but stress, really and chaos. but what can i do, i kind of like gore and i like fixing things. which is a weird combination, i know but i think it makes me quallified for the job.
why didn't it happen, if I'm not to curious to ask?
I don't know how it happens universally, but in my country you need high grades at math to get into the medical school. Well, I didn't have the optimal grade. That one stupid thing ruined it all. I kind of never wanted to be a doctor that actually heals people. I'm more interested in forensics and the coroner's job. It won't ever happen in reality, but at least I can write about it in my novels. So, I'm stuck with dreams and no profession that would actually earn me a living.
