Introduction: How to Draw an Eye
This is a tutorial to help you draw eyes.
Step 1: What You Need
All you need is some paper and a pencil, I used a brown pencil, but you can use whatever colour you want.
Step 2: Start
Draw out the basic outline of the eye. Make it into a lemon kind of shape.
Step 3: Iris
Draw a circle in a bigger circle, inside your outline of the eye, this is your iris.
Step 4: Colour
Colour the smaller circle in. Make sure it is quite dark.
Step 5: Light
Add colour to the bigger circle, make sure it is a light colour. Also leave a bit unshaded, this is where the light is.
Step 6: Lines
Add lines and shadows to the bigger circle, this is the patterns on your eye.
Step 7: Eyelid
Draw a line across the eye that covers the top of the iris, this is your eyelid. Next shade it in, medium dark.
Step 8: Eyelashes
Add the top lash. You can do this in one continuous "zigzag" shape, or with seperatevstrokes. Make the lashes bigger for a woman, smaller and less ordered for a man.
Step 9: Eyelashes
Now do the same with the bottom lash, except make it slightly smaller than the top one.
Step 10: Shadows
Add shading to the corner of the eye, where your nose would be, press reasonably lightly.
Step 11: Shadows
Add shadows for the bags under your eyes and underneath your eyebrow, you might want to define where your bag ends, by drawing a thin medium dark curved line. Try to shade in different directions, so that it looks like different shadows on your face.
Step 12: Eyebrow
Draw the outline of the eyebrow, make it thicker for a man thinner for a woman
Step 13: Hairs
Add hairs to the eyebrow, make them go in different directions, although more ordered for a woman and less for a man.
Step 14: Adjustments
Add any shadows, lines...
And your finished!!
I did another drawing if an eye which turned out better, so you can copy and make changes from that (it's the second eye)!!!
