Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw real eyes. So, real eyes go like this. That's an eye shape, basic eye shape. Then you want to do about that distance of space between them and then make another one the same size as close as you can get it. Then in the middle, just draw in a circle and that's the iris of the eye, which is the color part. Could be brown or blue or green, hazel. And then, in the middle of that, is another circle that's filled in and that's the pupil and that's the black hole that you actually see through. And, then you can draw some eyebrows. It's just a arching shape over the eye. And, some eyes have a fold over the eyelid called the epicanthal fold. So you could draw that in if you wanted. And, you could also draw in some eyelashes. I'm just makin' little lines comin' out to be the eyelashes. Eyelashes keep dust and dirt out of your eyes. And, I'm going to fill in the iris, a color. And I'm going to give the eyebrows a sorta hair texture, so that line is serving as a guide, but to make them look more real I make the eyebrow out of hair 'cause that is what it is made out of. So, as you can see I'm just sort of giving the eyebrows a more natural look. I'm just sorta darkening in some of the details of the eye. The tear duct kind of comes down there. And, that is how I draw real eyes.
