Welcome to the final Lessons for Level 1. If you're new to this newsletter, from now until I get to the final part of the lesson, you will be receiving Lesson 10 in small digestible chunks, once a week.

I'm focusing on formulas for different body parts and I'll be posting each section up on The Drawing Website as I complete each body part.

This insures I get the lesson done and gives all the subscribers early access to the info so they don't have to wait.

This week we start on eyes.


Cartoon Eye Formulas

Eyes come in all types of shape and sizes. In this section I'm going to be talking about a few specific types of eyes and what they're made up of.

These eyes will be:

Cartoon eyes

However before we begin,  just as having knowledge of drawing real heads helps your head drawing, having real knowledge of how real eyes work, will help your cartoon eye drawing. Especially the more naturalistic your cartoon characters are.

When drawing cartoon eyes, there are four things about realistic eyes to keep in mind:

Eyes

Some of these things may seem like common sense, but more often than not, when drawing cartoon eyes, they're ignored. This makes eyes look a bit odd.

Let's quickly take a look at why these things are good to know:

 

  1. Eyes are spheres - This is, of course, the most common sense of all the things, yet when drawing eyes, most of  us tend to draw flat stickers for eyes instead of spheres inserted in the head.
  2. The eyelids have an origin - In many cartoon eyes, the lids tend to often appear out of no where. Yet in reality, they have specific origin from which they pivot to open and close.  The average eye's lid origins tend to line up. In cartoon eyes, you can vary the angle these origins have to each other in order to add variety. I'll show you more about this later.
  3. Eyelids wrap around the sphere - Another thing that can make or break the look of a cartoon eye is how the lids interact with the sphere of the eyes.  Unless you're Garfield the cat, you want eyelids to wrap around the eyeball to add dimension to your eyes.
  4. Eyelids have thickness - Eyelids are not painted on the sphere of the eye, they have depth. They even cast a shadow on the eyes more often than not.  It's another way to add depth and dimension to your cartoon eyes.

Keeping these four things in mind, next week we'll see how we can best use this info when drawing our cartoon eyes.
