How do you draw a good eye sketch?

Always start with an overall sketch of the eye in order to avoid disproportions. Never press your pencil too hard. Use light strokes, so that you can erase them later. The most common mistake in eye drawing is using thick dark lines in places where there should be a soft, gradual transition between shades.

How to draw eye corner in SketchUp?

This is an easy step – just draw what you see in your picture. Usually, the eye corner is just a triangle, sometimes it’s divided into two chunks. Blend it and add some white spots with an eraser, so that it looks wet. Fill this part with light pressure. Add a bit more shadow in the corner (ball shading!).

How do you sketch a straight line in art?

When you sketch a straight line through the eyes, the base of the nose, the mouth, and the brows, you’ll find that they are in correct perspective or parallel to one another. When you begin drawing a portrait, sketch this structure.

How can I make my eye drawings lighter or darker?

As always, begin with lighter tones. I used a brush to blend the fair skin at the bottom of the drawing and stumps for all the darker shades. Per usual, look at your eye drawing and see if you should enhance the contrast, aka darken the shadows.
