Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw an eye for artists. Okay so the eye is kind of, it's kind of the shape of an almond or a pumpkin seed, so, let's do that shape. It's shaped like that but on one side there's just a little bit of a dabble where the tear duct is so let's add that then you add the border of the eye which is where the actual eyeball is behind here. Let's add the iris which is the colored portion of the eye and then the pupil which is the black center of it. There's usually some glare coming from the pupil and the iris is kind of lines coming out of it bursting from around the pupil. Now with the eyelid, it comes out larger on the top than it does on the bottom and then on the bottom it's just a little bit of a lip which also exists at the top of it and then let's add some eyelashes that actually curve around off of that and let's also add some lashes coming off the top which curve in the opposite direction. Then let's fill in that pupil and then just add a little bit of texture, a little bit of something to that at this portion. And the nose would be over here. And that is how you draw an eye for artists.
