Hey guys, Chris this is here and today, I'm going to show you how to draw the shape of eyes. So, basically, what we're going to do is, we're going to start off with a wave motion going up. kind of just going like that, so this side is going to be the side with eyelashes. And this side is going to be the side with the tear duct. Then, you're going to do the same thing underneath it, but you're going to be going the opposite way. And make sure you leave a little bit of a squiggle line for the tear duct there, just kind of, like this. And you're going to fill that out So,it almost looks kind of like a football shape, with a little bit of a squiggle at the end there for the eyelashes. And on the other side, you're going to leave it a little bit open, just so you can keep the tear duct there. You're going to draw just another line for the tear duct, maybe a couple sparse lashes underneath. Make sure, you leave, underneath there's, usually a little bit less eyelashes than the top. So, leave a little bit of space in between the line and the lines going that way, for the eyelashes. You can fill out the lashes kind of, however you want, on top. Maybe, the person has some crazy eyelashes, maybe they just have regular eyelashes. You can kind of go, go your own way with that. And then, we will draw in the pupil and the cornea there. Basically, we're going to do almost, it's almost a circle. But you're going to want to make sure you leave the top of the circle, just a little bit concealed. Just because, usually when somebody is looking at you. You can see that the top of the eyelid is usually covering the top, the top of the pupil, just a little bit. So, we're going to go in and draw the pupil here. And leave, make it kind of look like a half moon, just to give it a little bit of a highlight on there. And you can fill out the eyelashes a little bit more, if you want, and underneath, there we go. I'm going to do the eyelid, where the nose meets, and some lines for the cornea. And usually, when somebody is looking at you, the top of his or her eyes are always a little bit darker too. So, kind of fill in the top part, just a little bit more and then, kind of go around. Alright guys, and there you go, that's the basic shape of eyes, thanks a lot.
