He uses short stout strokes with the pastel to imitate the lie of the fur and has his finger ready to smudge and blend in the appropriate places. The eyes are the show stoppers in this drawing with their incredible detailing and realistic look. This is where the pastel pencils really come into play. Do you think you can do the same?

Mark Crilley is back again by popular demand to fulfill a request from a few of his young artists asking how do you draw a photo realistic eye in pencil. From past videos Mark Crilley has drawn realistic eyes but none to the detailed extent of this drawing tutorial where the eye looks wonderfully lifelike.
The key to drawing a realistic eye is to use less line work with your pencil and instead enhance your tonal skills to achieve the depth and proportions necessary to draw the human eye realistically. As a manga artist Crilley draws many of his characters from memory all with a certain character trait within keeping to manga guidelines. Heavy pencil line work and obvious shapes are used more often than not by Crilley to produce and reproduce his manga characters.
In this drawing tutorial he attempts to break down these somewhat rigid drawing parameters in an attempt to differentiate between manga drawing and photo realism. The most important aspect to remember when drawing the eye is that it is not a perfect circle or oval but is instead full of intricacies which you must study before putting the pencil to paper. For example the iris should not be drawn as a stark bold circle as thus looks unnatural and more cartoon-like. In the real world when you study different people’s eyes and various positions you will notice that a large percentage of the upper iris is covered by the upper eyelid casting a completely different and more realistic look.
From this drawing video you can see how Mark Crilley begins by observing his reference image and takes his time pressing lightly on the pencil to achieve the basic shape of the eye. At first the drawing looks very odd and in fact not a great deal like an eye but as soon as the pencil detailing of the iris, tear duct and eyelashes are drawn the composition immediately starts to take on a realistic form.
From this drawing video you will learn how to control the pencil effectively and learn how to draw from reference competently to establish realistic values within your drawing. The video is instructional and thorough in it’s delivery and is an ideal tool for anyone wanting to learn t draw at a better level. Be sure to check out some of Mark Crilley’s other drawing tutorials on the site to help extend and better your knowledge on sketching and drawing.
