Use the 6B pencil to create a shadow under the eye lid to give the eye more depth and roundness.

They are very similar to human eyes. Reduce the eyelashes so there are almost none. It also depends on the animal.

It doesn’t matter. For a softer look and easier blending, I’d recommend a 2B Pencil or even up to 9B. If you prefer a cleaner look and don’t really plan on blending a lot, you could go for an HB. If you want something in between, you should use a B pencil.

Is there an easier way to draw eyes, like almost an anime style?

For the shading, did you use oil pastels? If you did, is it possible to do it in fine-liners?

With a 4B pencil draw spokes going outward from the pupil. Overlap some of the spokes to create thicker lines. This will make the eye look more interesting. Leave some areas untouched as they will be filled in later.

Blend the edges of each layer of gray to simulate a realistic eye using shades of gray.

Draw both eyes step by step together. For example, if you draw a part on one eye, do the same step afterwards on the other eye.

Large eyes with large pupils tend to look soft and kind. Changing the shape of the eyebrows also changes the expression of the eyes.

Using a 6B pencil, fill in the pupil. Avoid pressing too hard or else it will be hard for you to erase if you need to make corrections later on. You can go over the area again to achieve a darker shade. Make sure the highlights stay clean!

You could do whatever eye shape you desire. You can even use pictures as references.

There is an article on How to Draw Anime Eyes. And you are always free to just look at and copy any pictures of eyes that you like.

Fill in the eyebrows as well as the eyelashes. Eyelashes should be drawn using curved lines, NOT straight lines. To create the eyebrows, use a thin HB pencil. For the eyelashes, go with something darker, like a 6B. Go over the drawing and darken areas such as the pupil, creases, shadows and clean the highlights to make your drawing POP!

Darken the creases using a 4B pencil. Use the kneaded eraser to make the highlights pop, as well as dab areas of the eye that need to be lightened. For example the eye whites, lower lash area, brow bone and the inner corner of the eye near the tear duct.

When drawing portraits, it is important to be able to draw an eye.

A thicker, coarse paper for better blending would be good, but if you want a cleaner look, go for a thinner paper.

Shade the eye whites as well as the skin around the eyes. Don’t leave the eyeball white or else it will appear unrealistic and lack depth. For a more detailed tutorial on shading eye whites and how to make eyeballs look round, click here.

I’ve added some eyelash reflections, some subtle blood vessels as well as darkened the overall drawing. Try to use as many shades as possible when drawing eyes. Most people are afraid to go dark. Look at the picture in step 8 and compare it to the last step. Going dark makes a huge difference! I used to stop at step 8 too, because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to erase if my hard work turned into a complete disaster. This fear left me unsatisfied with all my drawings because they lacked depth. So take it a step further and make use of your softer pencils!

Draw the eyes bigger, more expressive, and vibrant. Consider adding more shine/highlights to them, and making them rounder. Eyebrows are important as well; use them to your advantage.

Draw thicker, darker, eyelashes for girls. Remember not all people are artists, but everyone can work up to it if they try. Practice makes perfect! Don’t go crazy with the eyelashes, as this can result in a weird looking eye.

Eyes can have different shapes. Experiment with almond shapes, more oval shapes, etc. Draw softer, lighter eyelashes for boys. Make sure that tear duct is more to the side from the eyeshade, as it makes it much more realistic.

Draw the shape of the eye. Use magazines of photographs as guides for drawing different types of eyes. This is step one. 

Make sure that you put the pupil in the direct center of the eye. If you want to make it look like it’s staring at you wherever you go, like the Mona Lisa, draw the eyeball slightly above the bottom of the eye.

Let’s start off with an HB pencil to sketch the shape of the eye. This outline should not be too dark because you want to prevent it from showing through in the end. We just need the basic shapes outlined at this point. The square shape in the pupil is a glare from a window or similar shaped light source. You can use other shapes such as circles or ovals as well.

Hi, welcome to RapidFireArt! My name is Darlene and in this tutorial I’m going to teach you how to draw a realistic eye using easy step by step instructions. This is my first tutorial, so I hope you enjoy it!

Does it have to be the exact shape in the example or can I do my own?

Use the blending stump to fill the white space in the iris. Carefully work around the highlight. Don’t press too hard. You should still be able to see the lines coming out of the pupil when done. If most of the lines have disappeared, you have either used the blender with too much force, or have not pressed hard enough when creating the spokes.

On a separate sheet of paper, smear some graphite into a small area. Use the blender to rub the area until the graphite has transferred to the tip of the blender (learn how to use a blending stump here). You will now use that to fill in the outer area of the pupil. This step does not have to be done perfectly. Sloppy smudging will make it turn out better, as well as give the eye more depth.

Apply a darker shade of gray for darker areas or you could try to shade in to the little details.

For this tutorial on drawing a realistic eye, I will be using the following tools: – Mechanical Pencil with 0.5 mm HB and 4B Ain Leads – Derwent Graphic 6B Pencil – Kneaded Eraser – Blending Stump (Learn how to use them here) – Smooth Bristol Paper

Draw the details for the eyelashes, pupil highlights, iris and eyebrows.

No, if you start with the pupils, you may have proportion issues.

Apply light shading over the drawing to simulate light shadows.

Apply the darkest gray for areas with very dark shadows (but not black).
