Recently, I was asked to make a tutorial for how to draw eyes.:) So here it is-
First things first, the hardest part- the shape. I make two pointed ovals as the eyes. Now it can be tricky to get them the same shape, so I try not to press down too hard, so that if you need to erase the lines, it won't leave permanent marks.:)
Now, it all depends with what expression you want to give, but I'm making my person have just regular happy eyes, so she's looking straight.:)
Now I add the shine from the sun. You put the shine in the direction that the sun (or light) is coming from.:)
And now, you separate the iris from the pupil. The pupil varies in width with how much light it is exposed to.
What I usually do is I color in their pupil with pencil first, then go back with black colored pencil.:)
Add the crease above the eye...
Eyebrows are very important with what overall impression you want to give. I have trouble doing straight ones, probably because I usually do mad, sad, worried, puzzled faces a lot.;) That's why mine are a little different.XD
Well, I hope that this helped you! Remember (It's basically my motto;P) PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! I think I'm going to have to show you my total screw ups!XD Would you like to see those?;P
PS- Would you like a tutorial on different facial expressions or other things?:)
