Steps To Draw Closed Eye
Total Time: 45 minutes
Determine The Eye Size
Determine the eye size of your portrait and draw guidelines according to that. Make points and lines where you must place your eyes at. Using this guideline, draw two circles, which would be base of your eyes.
Set The Angle of Eyes
Think about the angle that you want to give your portrait’s eyes and start shaping the eyes accordingly. Remember that the inner corner of each eye must be deeper and darker compared to the outer corner of the eyes.
Draw the Eyebrows
Draw the eyebrows just above the circles, you do not need to shade them right now, you just have to make an outline of how the eyebrows should look like.
Before shading, make sure that the guidelines that we made in steps 1 to 3 are not visible much, if they do, use the eraser to erase any extra lines. For shading, start with shading the lid and crease of the eyelid, shade in such a way that a light highlight is visible in the center of the lid. After that go to the under eye area and bridge of the nose. Do a light shading for the bridge of the nose.
Once you are done, carefully erase any guideline that is still visible.
Shading according to Age of Charcter
Shade the rest of the area according to the age of your character, for example, if the character in the portrait is about 50 years old, then you may add some wrinkles and dark circles around the eye area.
