HOW TO DRAW EYES IN 5 QUICK EASY STEPS

The eyes are the most important feature on the face. They express much of the emotion, so they must be drawn very carefully. Slanting the eye down makes the face appear sad, drawing a straight eye makes it look bored, drawing the eye up at the outer edge makes it look happy, and drawing the eye round and wide makes it look startled. The eye is drawn slanting upwards, beginning at eye-level (half-way down the head). At eye level the face is five eye widths across; the eyes are positioned one eye length from each edge of the face and there is one eye length between them – the “third eye”.
