Drawing Tutorial: How To Draw The Side View Of The Eye
Due to a request from an ArtisanHQ member I have uploaded a how to draw the eye from the side online drawing tutorial which I deem to be a very concise and accurate reference to learn from.
Drawing the eye from the side is a completely different discipline altogether. When you draw from the side it is perspective which comes into play much more than drawing an eye from a face on point of view. The eyeball, iris and pupil all have to be drawn as an irregular oval whilst their scale is under scrutiny up against the surrounding facial areas like the brows, cheekbones and the nose all of which place a major role in the eye retaining its perspective.
Through the use of a tablet and a computer software package like Adobe Photoshop the artist in this online tutorial guides you through all the elements to consider when drawing or sketching the human eye. Take note of how he begins his composition and at which point hatching and and shading is applied to bring the eye off the page.
