Drawing Eyes With Drawing Video Guides

To Draw Eyes

Drawing eyes is as much observational in an approach to draw eyes as it is drawing any other part of the body. Drawing an eye is like drawing any other facial feature, and as such should be practiced often.

One of the most obvious ways that I learned to draw eyes, was just looking at my own eyes in a mirror and drawing what I saw and you can do this for other features on the face. But, drawing an eye this way is the best advice I can give you, because you can learn to draw all the elements that make up the eye. Such as the Iris and the pupil and the eye lid top and bottom, aswell as the eye brow.

Most artists will be able to draw eyes in different ways and from different angles and that's what we will go through here, but first a quick drawing video to get you into the mood of drawing lots of eyes.....

Drawing Eyes From Front And Side View

Drawing eyes from the front and side view are two of the ways that you can learn about perspective when drawing the face at a side angle especially and so that's what we will go through first.

In the drawing below you can see that I've quickly sketched a quick drawing of a pair of eyes in the drawing video below, but on a side angle, well I'm going to show you step by step how I drew this, just to give you an idea and so you can actually learn something from this eye drawing tutorial.

Now in the video you can see that I started to draw the larger eye first as this will be what anyone will see clearer than the other eye, because the other eye is smaller, because it is away from the viewer, but still visible.

The way I have learnt to draw eyes like this, is to make the eye that's furthest away about half the other eyes size and to draw a more defined eye lid that you would only see on a side view of a face.

Draw Some Demon Eyes

Draw demon eyes if you want to experiment with the eye layout and see what you can come up with, it all starts with the layout of the eye ball and the pupils and iris of the eye and you can pretty much come up with many different eye design possibilities. Demons eyes are usually quite scary looking and can either be totally black or by simply making the pupil like a cats eye you can make it look effective straight away.

Watch the drawing video below to get some ideas on demonic eyes to draw.

I like to draw and am not as good as I want to be. My biggest difficulty is drawing eyes. It seems that no matter how hard I try, I can't them to turn out very well. They never look realistic! Thank you for showing this, it gives me more to practice with!
