I love to draw, and one of the hardest things for me to draw is facial features, like an eye.
This is a tutorial on how to draw the eye below. It is fairly simple but may take a few tries to get right, so keep trying!


 You will need:
2 Different kinds of pencils. A dark 6B or 8B, and a lighter HB
An eraser
Paper
flat surface, like a table or clipboard to draw on.

Also, dont forget to rate!

Step 1: Outline

Okay, to start, draw the basic almond-shaped outline of the eye. Try to make the inner corner (next to the nose) lower than the outer corner. P.S, I'm very sorry the pictures hard to see, my scanner made it very light.

<p>I learned to draw following an excellent guide I found <a href="http://learn-to-draw1.weebly.com" rel="nofollow">HERE</a>.</p>
First attempt
This is my first try! I need to work on the eyelashes, but I'm pretty proud! Next year will be my first year of art and I am learning how to draw different things. This is a really good tutorial! And yes, I know the eyelashes suck, but I am practicing!!

First time drawing
The eye
Thanks!
First time drawing and kinda tweaked it in a style my friend drew once.
These instructions were pretty easy, and I have to say, I think my eye turned out pretty well. (I only did the first 13 steps and only used a 2HB mechanical pencil.)
I usually suck at drawing and I tried this tutorial once and it turned out to be my best drawing ever
My 1st try, still need to keep practicing but pretty good!

<p>Thank you for making this guide. I'm making a project for school, and this is exactly what I needed to help me out. Eyes and hands. They are the bane of my life.</p>
<p>Thanks! This is the first thing I've drawn in at least ten years. I didn't follow your complete instructions, just the images at the top.</p>

I will definitely be looking out for more of your tutorials!</p><p>(although i didn't have an eraser so i screwed my eye up from the beginning, i kept going and one step at a time it actually ended up looking not too bad o_o)</p><p>thank you &hearts; &hearts; &hearts;</p>
It worked great! And I only used a plain number 2 pencil!
<p>Wow, I'm really surprised how well this went! This is my first time trying it, and I really didn't think it was going to look good, but with the shading, and light change, it really looks good! Awesome tutorial!</p>
