How To Draw Eyes

1)  The most important thing to consider learning before you even attempt to draw the eyes is to know the anatomy of the eyes.  Learning the structure of the muscles around the eyes and the bones that hold it will help you draw the eyes correctly.

2)  Start sketching the eyes by following its anatomical structure outlining in pencil the shape of the eyes, pupil, eyelashes and eyebrows.

3)  The shapes and forms learned from the anatomy will help us know how the light and shadows fall around the eyes.  This is the technique to draw the eyes that will look natural and realistic.

4)  Find out where is your light source so you can render the shadows around the eyes correctly.  Start rendering it using pencil and be aware of its light source so you can easily spot where the shadows will be.

5)  The final and most important part to render which will make the eyes look real is to add the highlight and reflection within it.  Usually it is a tiny white dot that is rendered in the pupil.

Observe and follow how I draw the eyes step by step and if you do it correctly you will find yourself rendering it very easy.  Have you ever tried drawing the eyes or are you still learning on how to do it correctly?
