In this guide, we will tell you how to draw cute eyes. This little tutorial is not an imperative tutorial, you can change each step to your liking. We offer you only the basic principles of drawing eyes in a simple style. You may think that this is a very difficult tutorial, but you should just start drawing and then you will get a great result.
So, we start a guide on how to draw cute eyes. Before drawing anything, we need to decide on the location of the object on the sheet of paper. In our case, we can outline the location of the eyes using two intersecting lines. The horizontal line will serve as a guide for the bottom line of the eyes, and the vertical line will indicate symmetry.
In this short but important step, we will draw the upper borders of the eyes. Be especially careful when drawing these lines, as the size of the eyes depends on this action. Avoid pressing too hard on the pencil in this step.
Now let’s draw two more smooth lines that will close the arcs from the previous step. This will form the basic outlines of the eyes. In this step, you need to carefully check the lines that we drew from the first step.
We often say that the shape and position of the pupils shape the character and direction of the gaze. Therefore, in this step, we will draw the pupils that move towards the conditional nose. This will create an intent and cute look.
As you know, the human eye has an auxiliary apparatus, which includes eyebrows, eyelashes, and other anatomical structures. In this step, we will draw in thick fan-shaped tightly spaced eyelashes. Notice how the eyelashes are curved and directed upward and laterally.
This time we have created a really small lesson and we are already approaching the final. We will start this step by deleting construction lines. Then, with strong pressure on the pencil, we will circle the borders of the eyes and eyelashes. At the end of this step, we will paint over the pupil using dense intense shading. Pay attention to the white highlights. This is a very important detail indeed.
Check again all the lines and all the shapes that you drew in this tutorial. Draw the final lines around the upper and lower eyelids. Use short strokes to outline the natural folds of the skin.
Drawing eyes is not an easy task. However, if you regularly practice and draw eyes in different shapes and from different angles, you will very soon become a real master. Don’t forget to email us about how much our tutorial helped. We are looking forward to your feedback!
