How to Draw Eyes From the 3/4 View
This is part of a series of eye drawing tutorials that shows you how to draw eyes from various perspectives.
Draw a horizontal line roughly through the center of the eyes or through the lacrimal caruncles to draw the eyes.
Then, using very light strokes, sketch out the outline of the eyes and eyebrows, which will help you draw the details correctly and maintain proportionality in the drawing. Note that the guidelines should move away from each other as they get closer to us, according to the rules of linear perspective.
Sketch out the eyes, eyebrows, and nose with very light lines, keeping in mind that the distance between the eyes should be roughly equal to the width of the eyes, and that the details closer to us should be larger than the details further away.
Remember to draw the outline of the eyelids as well as the lacrimal caruncle, and use a mirror to double-check the proportionality and accuracy of your drawing of the eyes.
Sketch out the folds between the brows to make the eyes look more lively and realistic, and don’t forget to compare parts of the drawing to each other and the entire drawing to our example.
Remove all unnecessary auxiliary lines from your drawing of the eyes with an eraser, then try to make the drawing more voluminous by darkening the closer lines and lightening the farther ones to give your eye drawing a sense of volume and space.
Draw the outlines of the irises first, then carefully draw the pupils, making sure they are perfectly round and proportionate.
We recommend that you read our article on light and shadow to learn how to use them properly.
If you’ve arrived at these lines, you either drew eyes or decided to scroll down; if the latter, we recommend that you study the process of drawing eyes, then try drawing other eyes, such as your own, and finally, try drawing the entire head.
