Description: Hello everyone. Sorry it's been so long. Things got a bit busy around here but I'm back and I'm going to try to shell out some more tutorials for you. Got a good one today on 'How to Draw Eyes'. It's a good subject to cover and every now and then someone will run into some issues while drawing eyes and not know how to handle it. I've loaded this one up with info and tips for you so you'll know just what to do when you hit that wall. Good Luck and I hope you like it!
Description: First off we'll go over the parts of the eye. On the top and the bottom we have the eye lids. Above the top lid is the fold your skin makes while your eye is open. On the corner of your eye that is closest to the nose, is the tear duct. Next we'll move onto the white of the eye and then to the iris, the colored part. And finally we have the pupil.
Description: You eyes are roughly places so that the inner corners are parallel to the very edges of the sides of your nose and so that the center lines up with the corner of your lips. They are also roughly a little higher than halfway up your face.
Description: Eyes come in different shapes and types. There are eyes that have the outer corner that is turned down, and eyes that turn up. There are also eyes that are hooded, meaning that there is little space between the lid and the muscle of the eye right above it.
Description: Different ethnicities also have different eye shapes. This is because different ethnicities have different shaped eye sockets as well as other features of the skull 1.)Asian eyes are longer and more almond shaped. It is also common for asian eyes not to have the fold above the eye where the lid goes up. 2.) Caucasian eyes are round towards the bottom and have the fold above. 3.)African eyes are rounder on the top.
Description: There are also different settings for eyes. There is 1.) close set eyes, where the eyes are set closer to the bridge of the nose, and 2.) wide set eyes, where the eyes are set closer to the sides of the face.
Description: Here is a picture to show you how eyes look depending on what view you're looking at them. When you look at an eye from 3/4th's profile or full on from the side, the eye seems to round out more in the center. This is because your eyes aren't a flat surface or perfectly round and they actually protrude more where your iris and pupil are.
Description: BONUS TIP! When coloring your eyes, don't leave the whites...well white. use and off while color or light grey and do the highlights in white. This will give your eyes a better effect to them.
