How To Draw an Eye by Simiko How To Draw an Eye by Simiko
FINALLY !
hehehe as i told my friend :iconantworm: and the rest of my watchers that i will post tutorials
and here's another one ! , how to draw the eyes which is a big issue even for me xD
so let us begin !

you will need graphite pencils 2H up to 8B if possible
eraser and tissues
oh and a paper xD
we will use the tissue to do the smudging since doin it with fingers maight leave prints and stuff

1- draw the sketch for the eye and make sure the end of the eye is the same level as the first , otherwise it might end up lookin like a fish , just like my sister says xD

2- we will start shadowing the skin first , and the light is coming from the left side , i usually use B for this one , then smudge

3- darkening some spots with 2B pencil , depends on how you know where light falls and shadows and stuff , then smudge

4- wel will be doing smudgin in almost each step , and in this one you will draw the final stage of skin , which is the eyelid and the skin under the eye

5- drawing the eyebrow WITHOUT smudgin it , now when you do this step , make sure your hand moves just like when you use a brush to paint , not a brush to brush your teeth :D , and the more the eyebrow's hair goes to the left (end of the eye) the more it's like gets down

6- shadowing the eye now , its like a ball , oval shape and we will shadow it accordin to that , so start again with B and smudge

7- Darkening the places that needs to with 2B and smudge

8- now to the eye itself , the Iris , the REAL work :D , leave the Pupil for now , and do the Iris and smudge

9- darken the places , and draw something that looks like a sun around the Pupil , you will notice it when you look at yor eye closely in the mirror

10- darken it now and add darker lines around it that looks like shadow

11- darken all around the Iris with 4B or more and smudge then finally do the Pupil with the darkest pencil you got :D

12 - now draw lines in the Iris just the way it is in a clock or watch , to make it easier , start by doing one at the top , bottom , left then right and fill in between them , no we will STOP smudging

13- darken in the upper place of the eye , that is the eyelid effect , and smudge

14- now edit the sparkles in the eye by using the thinniest place of your eraser

15- check this out , now ALL of the eyelashes go in the same direction , some to the left , right and straight , depends on the post the eye is in

16 - now fill in between to complete the eye lashes , and darken some hairs in the eyebrow

your eye IS DONE !!
*phew* :iconphewplz:
HOPE THAT HELPED !!

Surprising technique for the eyelashes, this tutorial looks pretty great and I'll try it sometime if it's not too complicated.

This is very nice, it looks a bit too smudged to be super realistic however.

I've never seen an eye that has that many lines in it, but really good job otherwise.
