38 Ways to Draw an Eye by WatermelonOwl 38 Ways to Draw an Eye by WatermelonOwl
This is what I do at school. lD
38 styles from realistic to anime. (cartoony styles were too simple for me to include. dun liek)
I tried to vary a bit but a lot of them might look the same. TvT
But feel free to reference from these. ;D

Tips on drawing eyes:
- There are uncountable numbers of ways to draw eyes! It is easy to make up a style if you just try!
- The iris of the eye (coloured part) is always partially covered by the eye lid on a real relaxed eye
- One or two lines can be drawn to indicate eyelids. (but dont draw them too far apart or too dark!)
- Where ever the light is in the eye should be where the light source is

References: anime and stuff
Drawing - me!

I have seen some eyes's drawing in tutorials from internet. Having some eyes's collections is always useful :XD:.

I agree. It helps you to vary in style a bit more when you draw a whole bunch of eyes first. At least that's what i find. XD

We are two in that case, but something that I also make regularly is make new characters with new eyes.
