How to Draw Asian Eyes with Pencil with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Realistic Eye Drawing for beginners and All.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Step 1: Draw a circle
Start by drawing a fuzzy circle. This is the eyeball. It doesn’t have to be perfect as we’ll completely remove it later.
Step 2: Choose an angle
Eyes can be slanted in different ways. Choose the offset you want for your eye and draw a line through the circle at the angle you want. Note: For this tutorial, the left side of my circle will be the inside of the eye.
Step 3: Draw the inner corner of the eye
You can use many different shapes for the inner corner of the eye. I drew a deep V, but you can also draw a U or a combination of the two and so on. It can be narrow, wide, shallow, deep, small or large.
Step 4: Draw the Top Cap
While staying within the boundaries of your circle, draw the upper eyelid. It can have many different shapes. High arches will give you big eyes. I’m choosing a medium sized one. While you are drawing, picture the eyelids embracing the spherical eyeball. When drawing white eyes, I like to end the stroke at the intersection of the circle and line, but for Asian eyes, I wanted to stretch the line a bit more: I like to do the same with the inner corner. of the eye.
Step 5: Draw the Bottom Cover
Now let’s draw the bottom cap. Try to keep it close to the line we drew in step 2. The bottom cover will be much less curved than the top, but not quite flat/straight.
Step 6: Add folds
This is where we can make the eyes look Asian or Caucasian. We will draw a kink running over the upper eyelid. To make the eyes appear Asian, stroke your pencil at the inner corner of the eye. The extent of your reduction is up to you – In the example below, the crease is only visible at the end. For some Southeast Asians, the wrinkle may be completely invisible, and for others, it may even run parallel to the upper lash line instead of tapering at one end. Here is an example of a parallel fold, common in people of Caucasian descent.
Step 7: Remove the border
Carefully erase all your construction lines: circles and lines.
Step 8: Add some details
Located in the inner corner of the eye is an area called the caruncula. It’s a little bit of soft pink flesh that’s separate from the eyeball. You can draw a curve or two right there to represent the transition between the two shapes. In the video at the end of this post, I will show you how to shade it. To draw the iris of the right size, I want to measure the eyeball horizontally and divide the space into four. The iris will take up about a quarter of the eyeball. Example: To draw a lifelike iris, draw a full circle and then erase the parts beyond the eyeball. This step should be drawn gently. Once you’ve determined the position and size you want, darken the iris outline.
