Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
For this first step in the cute eye drawing tutorial, we’ll start with the shape for the left eye.
You probably think of a circle or an oval when you think of an eye, but for this style we’re going to do something completely different.
This shape will resemble a long oval, but the base will have a flatter curve. There will also be a sharp point in the inner corner of the eye, as shown in the reference image.
Step 2 – Next, draw the remaining eye contour
So far, you have finished drawing an eye, and for this next step you can draw an exact copy, except for the reversed position.
For this one, the sharp point will be to your left instead, as you can see in the image. With both eye contours drawn, you can move on to the next step!
Step 3 – Now, thicken some lines of the eyes
This step of our cute eye drawing tutorial will be very simple but effective. For this step, simply thicken the lines on the upper dome of the eye, using the image as your guide.
For this step, you should do your best to have the thickness as close to the same as possible for both eyes.
Step 4 – Draw some lashes next
A few eyelashes will help you draw cute eyes and add personality.
They will be made up of three thick, curved lines ending in points coming out from the top left of the left eye.
Step 5 – Now add some lashes for the other eye
You’ve already drawn three lashes, so now that you know it, for this cute eye tutorial step you can draw more lashes on the other eye, they will be exactly the same except mirrored.
Step 6 – Draw the main part of the iris for this next step
In this sixth step we will start drawing the irises of your cute eyes.
They will be solid black as you can see in the reference image, however, I do not recommend filling them in for this step, as we will add some more details to them later.
The irises themselves are simply two perfect ovals, and the picture should give you an idea of the location.
You can also place them in different positions in the eye so that the eye looks elsewhere!
Step 7 – Now, draw some iris outlines
In the next part of our tutorial on how to draw cute eyes, we simply added outline to the irises.
Draw carefully around them, enclosing the outer edges of the irises with an outline like what you see in the picture.
Step 8 – Next, add some light details to the eyes
You’ll see why I recommend you don’t fill in the irises earlier for this next step, as we’ll be adding some sparkle details to your cute eyes drawing.
To do this, simply add two white ovals as they appear in the reference image. They are mostly in the solid black of the iris, but they will also extend slightly into the border.
Step 9 – Add the final iris detail
It’s almost time to color your cute eyes drawing! For these final details, simply add in two small, white circles below the white oval you drew in the last step.
Once done, you can color it with solid black of the iris so it looks like the image.
Now that you’ve brought your cute eyes drawing to life with some final details, it’s time to finalize them with some color!
We’ve shown one way you can color in your drawing, but you should let your creativity run wild for this step.
Will you use an actual eye color like blue, green, or brown for the color, or will you be more stylish and use something like pink, red, or yellow?
To color the eyes, I would use a medium like crayons or pencils to not only give you more control over the small details, but also add some beautiful vibrant colors to your drawing.
