Hey guys, this is Chris and today, I'm going to give you step-by-step instructions on how to draw Manga Eyes. So, first things first, what I'm going to do is, I'm going to draw just a line going like that. And another line on the other side. And then, manga eyes are usually pretty big. So, I'm going to do another line down here, kind of at an angle going the opposite way, and the same thing on this side. Alright, so, now, we have our outline for the bottom and the top of the eye. Then, I'm going to use a blue marker, just to kind of give the eyes a little bit of color here, and differentiate from the eyelid. And, I'm going to do a line going down this way, just at a tiny bit of an arc. And the same thing here, but this one's going to come in a little bit more and have more of an arc like shape. And then, I'm going to do the same thing on the other side, and the same thing here. And now, with manga eyes, the big thing is the highlight that they have. They usually have a pretty large highlight on them. So, I'm going to do a big circle here, just like that, and the same thing on the other side. And another highlight, just like that. And I'm just going to color these in, just kind of give them a little dimension, and fill that in. And then, fill this in as well. You can use any color that you want. I mean, if you want to get crazy and do pink, that's totally up to you. The crazier, the better, actually with manga, a lot of times. And then, I'm going to use my white marker and I'm going to just kind of fill in the highlights here, and one there, one there. And, if also, if you think it's easier, you can also just do the rim of the highlight here. If you're using a darker color on the outside, that might be, that might work really well. But it's really up to you. I'm just going to fill this guy in here, really quick, and draw a little nose. There you go guys, and that's step-by-step instructions on how to draw manga eyes. So, good luck.
