Eye Shape practice

My blog has now moved to www.artistsophie.com so this blog will have no more articles on it.

Before attempting my first pencil portrait I’ve decided to practice on individual features, which I found quite useful. This shows the basic shape of an eye to begin with. Notice how this eye is not an oval shape but instead it has more of a curved shape, like drawing a fish. The slope’s more gradual top left than it is top right. Bottom of the eye has a deeper curve.
