Drawing cartoon eyes: some fun facts before starting sketching!
This tutorial is gonna show you how to draw some efficient eyes. First, the eyebrows (1) are the part of the eye that will reveal your character's mood. The iris and the pupil (4), on the other hand, might be consider like the gates between the soul and the outside world! Don't forget the upper (2) and lower (3) eyelid and the eyelashes (5)!
The shapes of these magnificent blue eyes are rather simples. One circle for the iris and another one for the pupil. Some lines to picture the eyebrows and the eyelashes. Two long lines for the upper and lower eyelid.
Take a good look at the shape of the eye. You can see that it's not a perfect oval. The edge on the right of the eye is our clue to let us know that this the right one.
Let's start to practice by drawing a simple cartoon eye. Sketch a circle for the iris. Next, draw the outline of the eye at the bottom of the previous circle.
Sketch another circle for the pupil and a smaller one for the light reflection. You can add an eyebrow and a thin line to represent the lower eyelid. Finish your work by adding some eyelashes.
The eyes you create can take many shapes. It can be manga-style (3), realistic (4) or simple (1) and funny (2). The eyes will probably become the most expressive part of the body of your cartoon character. Whether it's while reading a comic book or meeting someone in real life, we spend most of the time looking at people right in the eyes.
