Drawing eyes

Drawing eyes

Drawing eyes is not necessarily hard, but very important. In portraiture, eyes are the part of the face which focuses attention of the viewer the most. Today I'd like to review anatomy of the eye in a way that is understandable for a painter, point out things that need extra attention and hopefully motivate you all to sketch a little bit ;)

I wish for this tutorial to be some kind of introduction for drawing male head. I wish to move on from here to the basics of anatomy and proportions, shading, then expressions and so on... After going through this tutorial you will be (hopefully) able to paint a decent looking male head and learn few tricks to make it easier. For me learning how to draw male head was really tricky - here is all that helped me.

When I finished preparing this tutorial and I realized how short it is, I was pretty scared at the beginning, that I forgot about something etc. but I guess the shorter the better. It's just that skin texture is not very complicated if you just remember few simple rules you should follow :) I'll try to point them all out in this tutorial.

Nose

A friend of mine asked me to post a tutorial about drawing nose and here it is - a little something on the matter. Well, it's not like there is a special philosophy to it, but I made some screenshots while I was waiting and wrote down what I was doing so it might be of use to some of you :) When I look at this tutorial now I am not convinced that it will be enough, because I chose one (and rather simple) nose position but I guess technique applies to any nose position (and not only to nose).

This time something more spring-like and simple. It was a practice I did, based on the photograph I like very much :) Even such simple drawings can be fun, especially when you can learn something while painting them. Everything just because I couldn't paint decent... flowers. I even had to ditch what I was drawing just to learn more about flowers, it was that hard for me. You can see original photo for this one here: gallery of Andokadesbois. Thank you so much!
