Description

We'll begin this training by discussing and examining the sclera, along with the iris and pupil, to gain an understanding of the eyeball's form and surface structure. From here, we'll draw the eye from the front by focusing on the structure of the upper and lower eye lids. Following this, we'll also spend some time drawing the eye from the side where we'll highlight the structure and positioning of the cornea. We'll also draw the eye at a three-quarter view and discuss the element of perspective. Finally, we'll shade the front view of the eye to better represent the tissue covering the eye, followed by adding details to the iris, painting eyelashes, and applying some color. After watching this training, you'll have a better understanding of how to draw eyes for your own projects. Software required: Photoshop CC 14.2.
