3 Steps let you draw eyes in any direction!!!

Hello! Cuties, I am Comic black rainbow.

Eyes are the window to the soul, so when people draw the eyes are not good, it seems the character lost the soul.

Lost the taste. Lost the feeling. Lost the spirit.

But before painting the eyes, we still need to have a basic understanding of the eyes to help you draw eyes.

Further reading you might find interesting:

We all know, eyes are covered by the upper and lower eyelids. But most people will probably paint it as a flat. Of course, it's nothing wrong, just compared to popular or real eyes drawing, this painting way easily highlights a painter’s lack of basic knowledge, so when drawing eyes, we must use three-dimensional thinking to paint it.

You can see, the eyeball is like being wrapped up and down by eyelid. But because it matches the curve and structure of the human face, it will still be deformed due to the changes in the muscles of the human face. After you understand the structure of the eye with a three-dimensional concept, we can now start to draw eyes!

In the beginning, we can use the concept of a sphere to draw the overall direction of the eyeball, and then we can decide where the pupil looks.

Here you can see that the eyeball is facing us, but the pupil is looking to our right.

After determining the direction of the eyeball and the pupil, we can draw the eyelid according to the direction of the eyeball!

Let's try another look from top to bottom, and draw the direction of the eyeball.

Then draw the position of the iris.

Finally, draw the eyelids according to the direction of the eyeballs, and you're done!

After learning how to draw the direction of the eyes, you can draw different angles of eyes on faces from different angles! Because of understanding the real eye structure, you can try some interesting effects more easily!!! For example, do you want to draw your eyes as double eyelids or single-edged eyelids? How can eyebrows be matched to show the character? These can greatly help your creativity and make your creation better. So don't underestimate the basic knowledge! Now that you have read this article, why don't you immediately draw a pair of glamorous and charming eyes to surprise me?
