Step-by-Step Eye-Drawing Tutorial
I've heard from friends and other artists that they struggle when trying to draw a character's eye. I created this simple tutorial, and I hope it will be useful to someone who may be facing this same dilemma. This tutorial doesn't show how to create an anime-style eye, but one that lies between cartoon-like and realistic.
Draw a simple line that is arched a bit at the top but circular for the most part.
Draw a similar shape on the bottom side.
Draw the center and corner of the eye similar to the way it looks above.
Start adding little details like the pupil (black in the center) and the glare on the eye.
The iris should have a little detail. Draw in lines all around the eye.
Draw in the top part of the eyelid as it appears above.
Draw in some eyelashes!
Add a thin eyebrow, and then you're done! There you have it folks, a female eye!
