Drawing eyes beautifully
For work you will need two simple pencils: soft and hard. Soft pupils are painted over, dark shading is applied, eyebrows are drawn, and hard - everything else.
- Draw the inner and outer contours of the eye. In the inner corner, use a small circle to exit the tear duct. Take care of eyelashes. They should not be the same size and straight form. The base is drawn thicker than the top. Near the inner corner of the eyelash should be oriented to the left, and the nearest to the outer corner - to the right. Eyelashes will look beautiful if you draw them thick. To achieve this effect, draw them in several rows.
- In two circles, indicate the pupil and the iris of the eye. On the pupil and iris, draw a glare.
- Paint the pupil with a soft pencil, leaving the zoneglare unpainted. Draw beautiful eyes is impossible without competent shading. To fill the iris, use the technique of gradient shading curls. Its meaning is that you fill the eye from the periphery to the center with small pyramidal spirals. The darker the zone should be, the more layers of curls you need to draw. The upper half of the iris fill completely, and in the lower half leave an unfilled central zone. Thanks to this technique, the eye will look bulky and textured.
- In the inner corner of the eye with a hard pencil draw a fewblood vessels. They should be barely visible. Using cross-hatching, create an effect of the volume of the protein part of the eye. The technique of its very simple: on the places that should be darkened, apply a grid on the mesh. The darker the zone should be, the more dense the strokes should be, and the more layers you need to make. The outer edge of the eye should be completely dark. In the inner part, shade the bottom, the top and the angle of the protein shell, leaving the central part untouched.
As you can see, drawing beautiful eyes with a pencil is quite realistic.
