Hey, guys! This is Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw some graffiti eyes. So, basically, the way that I like to draw eyes, is I start off - on one side, you make a swoop like that, almost like a little wave. And then, you start from, like, just a little bit in from that first initial swoop, and you do a one underneath. And then, you do another swoop for the corner of the eye, and you see how that kind of, like, dips down a little bit. And then, you're going to do the same thing on the other side. And then, do the same thing underneath. And then, you're going to want to draw the - maybe they're a little bit paranoid or something. So, maybe they're looking a little bit up, or to the side. And then, if you're drawing the corneas and the people and everything, you're going to want to make them look like they're looking a little bit to the side. Here's the pupil. Basically, you're going to want to leave a little bit of room for a little bit of a highlight. So, you're going to draw almost like a half moon there, and the same thing on the other side. So, you're leaving a little room for a highlight. And, maybe throw in a little bit of color. So, maybe this person has, like, pink eyelashes or something crazy. So, you can throw those in. And then, maybe they have, like, green eyes. So, you're going to start keeping a little bit more solid at the top if you're using one color, and then kind of sparsing it out as you go along the side, because right underneath the eyes, usually the part that's right underneath the eyebrow is a little bit darker than the rest of the eye. So, you're going to go along like that. Same thing on the other side. And, don't forget the corners of the eye. And then, you got your eyelashes underneath. Alright. And then, if you want to add a little shading there, can do that as well. And then, couple eyebrows. And, a little bit of a accentuation under the eyes. But, those are my graffiti eyes. I'd like to see yours, so, good luck, and keep on going.
