How I Draw Eyes - Tutorial by nataliebeth How I Draw Eyes - Tutorial by nataliebeth
Download for full view! (it makes it easier to read the writting)

Hello my friends and fellow deviants.

I bring you my promised eye tutorial! :la:

Woah, I really had no idea how long it would take me to make (4-5 hours), I had to start over 4 times because I ran out of room. :shakefist:

I really really hope that this will help you in some way. :aww: And I just want to tell you all that it isn't really as hard as it looks, its just hard to explain what I mean without many words. If you aren't sure, don't understand something or wonder what on earth I was rambling about, just send a comment and I will reply to the best of my ability. ^^

Oh and excuse my dry sense of humor, it was keeping me entertained as I was writing it up. And sorry for the annoying arrows, I hope they make sense. ^^;

I made reference to my phantomrider drawing which can be found here: [link]

and the final painting can be viewed here: [link]

I would really appreciate comments and if you attempt an eye drawing please show me :eager: I would love to see what you did.

Love and hugs.

Crystal.

:love:

I try to look at every artistic 'how-tos' and try to learn something off of it. I'm going to eventually try my hand at portraits. I'll look up something here if I forget something. :)

Well by what ive seen, you've done really well, especially when it comes to proportions and the angle of lighting. :aww: But I know what you mean. My art has been shaped by other artists.

hello i have this question to ask? :) Do you have to pay for this gimp photoshop? thing? If so do you any free photoshops? Cause i only can use the photoshop in my school...:iconkermityayplz:

nataliebeth Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010  Student General Artist
Oh no you don't! ^^;
GIMP is totally seperate to Photoshop, a completely different program... it does the same things as photoshop except its free (and in my opinion... easier :D) [link] This is the site. ^^
