Eye tutorial: the almond by MissPinks Eye tutorial: the almond by MissPinks
Download for full view!
These different eye styles i was practicing; trying different angles etc so if they are messy im sorry, they came straight from my sketchbook (well most) xD
The first chart is just to show a variety of styles, and what elements repeat and what can be left out etc, and how those styles differ. It's also to demonstrate the eye shape similarity to an almond, which can work from any angle.
There are many other styles that could be included (like western comic style), but i decided to do the ones i knew best.
Some of they styles look similar in two angles, especially the simpler eyes.

You can make your own chart of the styles you like/use, its good practice!

im pretty pleased with the accuracy of the different eyes to the photo, especially the surprised eye. (as i drew them all except the realistic style before i took the photos)

anyway this is more of a diagram thing than a tutorial i guess :confused:


hope you like!
i want to update my tutorials however here is a link to some older ones: [link]

It's nice that you showed several different styles, rather than just one style. It'll help a lot more people that way. :)

Yeah. It's a shame a lot of people just dismiss it as nonsense though as well. You're welcome. :)

Do you think you could do one on feet? I see you've done some skectches of hands in the past. Feet and hands are always the hardest to draw. If one finger is too short, or the thumb is too far away from the other fingers, the entire thing looks like an awful mess.

Aaah I can understand the feeling, it's sometimes sad to see an old style you really like go, but I guess in the end with influences and time it always comes back to being what you want it to be :) And I think so long as you're happy that's what matters :aww:
