Basics of a Realistic Eye

Art & Photography

Ten minutes worth of basic realistic-eye-sketching in three minutes with ten tips to help your own realistic-eye-sketching. [+ woo two videos in a row!]

This quick sketch was done with a cheap and simple black ball-point pen (Stabilo bille 508N) and paper. This isn’t the most complex, accurate or realistic eye, but I wanted to share how fast and simple creating a realistic eye can be if you include the right components, shapes, proportions and shadings.

Be sure to check out some real eyes (with a quick search a la google) for reference material to develop your own understanding of the human eye’s components, shapes, proportions and shadings. This is how I figured out how to draw an eye, which I soon realised is just a pupil, an iris, an eyeball, a waterline, an eyelid, an under-eyelid-thingo, a tear duct and many many lashes.

Let me know what you guys would like to see me sketch next, and for Susie’s newest video, head on over to her channel!

Much love and God bless,
