Each artist, depicting someone's portrait, should be able to draw the eyes of a person. At first glance, it seems that there is nothing complicated in this. However, in order to make the drawing realistic, it is necessary to take into account all the nuances and small details. How to draw a person's eyes beautifully with a pencil?
Structure of the human eye
The human eye consists of several external structural elements, each of which performs a certain function:
- upper eyelid;
- lower eyelid;
- upper eyelashes;
- lower eyelashes;
- iris and iris;
- eyeball (sclera);
To draw a person's eye with a pencil, you need to take into account all folds in smooth lines, shadows and much more, and also choose the location of the eyebrow correctly. Otherwise, the figure will seem implausible.
Step-by-step instruction for drawing human eyes
Drawing a person's eyes with a pencil is necessary in several stages. Step by step, line by line, from the structural elements is obtained the whole image. Step by step the process of drawing the human eye can be seen in the picture.
First you need to draw the shape of the eye. To do this, it should be enclosed in the frame of the figure with corners. At once it is necessary to draw folds that are visible above the upper and lower eyelids. Also, the shape of the eye can be drawn from two perpendicular lines crossed with each other. The horizontal line must be longer than the vertical line. Then smoothly connect the four points. Indicated in the inner corner of the drainer, without which the eye will turn unnatural. The outer and inner corners can be drawn on one and at different levels. Additional lines need to be erased.
It is necessary to draw an iris, which should be round in shape. It is important to take into account the fact that the third part is hidden by the upper eyelid. Inside the iris, strictly in the center, you need to draw a pupil, paint it in a dark color.
Then you can start drawing the upper eyelid, behind which the part of the iris with the pupil disappears. For this, the method of applying lines in the form of strokes is used. The main thing is not to overdo it so that the eyelid turns out to be the optimal thickness, it was darkened in the fold area. After this, draw a lower eyelid, which is selected from the inner corner of the eye.
The next step is to draw a highlight near the iris on the pupil. It is represented as a small circle. Opposite the glare, a stain of scattered light is formed, which is also near the pupil, only on the other side. This is a reflex that needs to be drawn in smooth lines.
The next step is the image of eyebrows and superciliary arches, which provide protection to the eye from external stimuli. The eyebrow is always placed above the organ of vision and is pushed slightly forward. First it is recommended to draw a test line, and then draw hair from it. At the base of the eyebrow is thicker than that of the temple. Hairs can be placed in one direction, or intersect. The upper eyelid is located above the lower eyelid. In the photo below you can see all directions. They must be observed, otherwise you will not be able to draw a realistic eye.
Eyes must necessarily be framed with eyelashes. They can be drawn in advance, but in the last stages it will be necessary to correct all the same. Like everything else, eyelashes should look realistic, and not as in children's drawings, where they resemble chamomile petals. The photo below shows the correct design. The upper eyelashes are always longer than the lower ones, thick at the base and thin to the tip. To do this, as the drawing of each eyelash grows, the pressure of the pencil needs to be reduced.
The last step is necessary in order to remove auxiliary lines, remove unnecessary strokes, make darker or lighter or darker certain places. That is, bring your drawing to perfection.
