Step 1: To draw a realistic eye you first want to outline the shape of the eye. This step does not have to be perfect. Draw lightly and try to get the basic shape of the eye.

Step 2: Draw the inner circle of the eye. This should be light and not in the middle of the eye. It should come from the eyelid and stretch all the way until almost touching the bottom of the eye.

Step 3: Draw the Pupil and highlight a square in the eye.

Step 4: Next Fill in the Pupil with a light grey and draw the eyelid. This should be close to the eye and very dark.

Step 5: All that is next is lots of shading and highlighting. Remember: Start light and gradually shade darker. The top of the inner circle of the eye should be dark since it is shaded by the eyelid.

Step 6: Add the eyelashes and swoop them up to make a 3D effect. Don’t add too many eyelashes and keep it simple.

Step 7: Add some depth to the inner of the pupil and shade the corners of the eye and the eyelid.

Step 8: Your finished! Congrats! Keep working on your eye if you don’t feel like it is perfect. Practice makes perfect, after all.
