STEP 1. Referencing Irises - When you're drawing an eye, you must know that two iris are never the same. Some irises have dark spots, heavy swirls, or rarely any texture at all. It's best to reference as many photos as possible to get an idea how you want your iris to look. The same objective applies for different eye shapes; no two eyes are the same shape. References adds to the artist's arsenal, use them as much as you can! I've drawn just three of the various iris an eye can have.   STEP 2. What's most important when you're drawing eyes, is the fact that the lashes should be curved 'up and out'. They NEVER flow straight upwards. When you fill in the lashes in the middle of the eye, the lashes appear to be shorter. This is because, the lashes are facing straight and you can't see the curl which attaches to the lid. Remember, look at many reference photos to improve your visual memory.   STEP 3. Because so many people ask me to show 'how I shade/color most of my realistic art', I've decided to include this little step showing you my progress throughout the drawing. Look at the first row of steps and see how I form lashes depending on the angle of the eye. See how the lashes vary as they follow the lids? I then shade around the iris dark flat colors, leaving the middle lighter. This is so I can erase the shadows outwards for the detailing of the iris. As I progress on, more details get erased to spice up that iris. Lastly, I add a white spot overlapping the iris and then shade the entire eye.   STEP 4. Make a V, then draw the eyeball. Color in the pupil, then sketch out the long thick lashes. You will also need to add the lid creases. Add some shading to the inside of the eye as well as around the eyes.   STEP 5. Let us start by making the eyes. Begin with simple lines for each eye.   STEP 6. Finish drawing the shapes of the eyes by drawing the bottom eyelid lines. Sketch the creases for the lids, then proceed to step seven.   STEP 7. Draw out the eye balls, then color in the pupils.   STEP 8. This is where the eyes become more intense. All you have to do is add a little fog over the top inner part of the eye. Once that is done you can sketch in the long lashes, then draw or sketch the eyebrows. The brows can be as thick or thin as you'd like them to be. Draw the nose, then add some detailing.   STEP 9. Lastly, sketch out the side portion of the face to close everything in. Erase the mistakes then you're done.   STEP 10. The eyes come out looking like the ones you see here. Color them in or even use what you learned on your own character face.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3.
