How do you makeexactly the shadows? I mean do you choose for every part a new colour? and what a tone dou you use? How do you use the colours, if you do so?

I normally choose midtones for bases. for the shading I use 2x the tone of the base.

That's pretty much how I do it. ^_^
Though, the shadow on the iris should probably match up a bit closer to the shadow on the sclera. You have it at this \ kind of angle on the right side that I just can't understand.
I usually make the unshaded part of the iris in a U shape, with some shading around the pupil and sometimes also outlining the edge of the iris (I think I picked it up from the Fullmetal Alchemist anime). But this is still really similar to how I shade eyes. ...no one cares how I draw and color stuff, though.

how do you do it? I can't seem to find anything in your gallery. :/
I do it pretty much the same way they do, but without the squiggles and with the unshaded part of the iris in more of a horseshoe shape. Though, I might have a better way to do the layers. I'm not exactly sure how they do it (they're a bit vague on that detail), but I make clipping mask layers for shading.
