Start with the outline. Because the outline will most likely be smudged off when I start shading carefully and lightly retrace the lines... To draw this I used a mechanical pencil.
Get some powder lead or draw a patch of it and take a fluffy brush and coat your eye in a few layers if it.
Use your finger or...
A small brush to start forming the shape of the eye by defining the darker areas!
Smooth and blend out the drawing.
To get this!
This is the knead eraser that I used to do highlights and touchups!
This is how I touched mine up...
Then fix your shading...
Redraw your outlines that have disappeared:)
Fill in the darkest areas like the pupil, shadow on the upper part of the iris and the crease of the eyelid.
Draw spokes coming from the pupil and shade a small part of the bottom of the eye...
Draw darker shades on the iris like so:)
I used a homemade tortillian for small shading...
Using the tortillian, I added shading to the upper eyeball and smoothed the entire drawing out!
I began working on the skin. I put tones into the eyelid and the skin surrounding it.
I used the tortillian to smooth out the harsh lines and then fixed some of the lines that got covered up!
Then I worked on the shadows of the lower part of the skin... Then I sketched in the eyebrows lightly.
I took the small brush and brushed out the eyebrow.
Then I filled it back in.
I added eyelashes like so! Darker at the roots and lighter at the tips!
I also drew the reflections of the eyelashes on the highlight of the iris.
Then I drew in the lower lashes.
I fixed some shading...
Fix your highlights...
Smooth everything out...
You're finished with your eye;)
