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
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.

Nice tutorial though i need practice.

I think it could use more work, or updated because I see you said you did this when you were twelve in the comments. I'd like to see how much you improved :) When I was twelve I couldn't even draw a heart or square right, I really got into drawing just last year when I was 14 (I'm going to be 16 next month) this is still good for the age when you made it :)
Thanks :) I'm working on an updated version of this today, so it will be up soon.
And Now it is updated
Very helpful! Any tips on noses? They are the most difficult feature to draw in my opinion.
Noses are very hard! I will probably make a tutorial on noses soon. One things to remember is values. Value is the relaive lightness or darkness of a color or of black. In the eye the pupil is the darkest value, so try and make that as dark as you possibly can! But parts of the highlight are the lightest value. In noses it is important to compare the shades of darkness throughout the nose, and be very precise when shading noses, because noses are a part of the face that has the most contrast in values and shadows because of it's shape. So try and really show the lightest value in white, and the darkest value in black. These tips may sound really complicated, so I'll try and make an easier tutorial on noses soon!
