How to draw 6 different eye shapes
I’ll show you how to draw six different eye shapes in this tutorial; feel free to mix and match as you get more comfortable on your next run-through; the last two have been pushed into a bonus section because I couldn’t fit all six eyes in every step.
Step 2: Pick an Angle
If you’re drawing a pair of eyes on the same face at the same time to create a 3D effect, this method is fantastic.
Step 3: Draw the Inner Corner of the Eye
Let’s look at the inner corner of the eye now that you know how to draw a circle. For small or shallow corners, stay close to the circle; for deep and large corners, place it well outside the circle for maximum effect.
Step 4: Draw the Top Lid
Draw the upper eyelid while staying within the circle’s boundaries; for almond-shaped eyes, use a slim football-shaped curve with the deepest part of the arc in the middle of the lid.
Step 5: Draw the Bottom Lid
The top and bottom lids of almond-shaped eyes are very closely aligned vertically.
Step 6: Add a Crease
Unless you’re drawing wrinkles, don’t extend this crease past the line you made in step 2, and for the top lid, keep it as close to the edge as possible.

How do you draw two eyes matching?
To begin, draw one eye and measure its width; remember that there is one eye spacing in the middle of the head between the two eyes, so add a space equal to the first eye and then begin to draw the second eye using the same width.
Why do I draw eyes so much?
Doodling eyes can reveal a person’s inner personality: large eyes indicate an outgoing personality, staring eyes indicate a feeling of being watched, and closing eyes could indicate a refusal to look within.
How do you paint your eyes to look at you?
Paint a skin tone that isn’t too light or dark across the surface before dabbing color inside the eye. Next, mix a slightly darker shade and apply it to the crease above the eye. Finally, add highlights to the lid below the crease and blend it with the shadow.
