How to Shade an Eyeball Step by Step || Realistic Eye Drawing

Step 1

Draw an ear shape using your blunt pencil draw an ear with a narrow shape. If you would like to draw your ears more protruding than your head then draw your ears wider. Take a measure of how long your sketch is, and then draw the ruler beside it. Draw three lines on the ruler and break into four equal segments. I’m labelling three lines A B, C and A, to make it easy for me to identify them.

Step 2

Create a large hook. Draw a hook beginning at line B and finishing on line A.

Step 3

Add an earlobe in an uninterrupted stroke beginning at line B, you will draw the”turban” (the small flap that is located in between the ears) and then finish your stroke by using a small hook that is located just above line C.

Step 4

Create a large crease. Make a curve on the extreme right, beginning from the top, and ending just below the line of C. You should leave a good amount of room between the ears.

Step 5

Make a hook that is small. Between the lines you have drawn create a hook that is large in the line A. The anti-tragus portion.

Step 6

Apply this shading method to create a curving line that runs through the middle of your ear. Make sure that it is not as parallel to the line that you made in step 4.

Step 7

Get ready for shade! Okay, the last one prior to shading! Remove the lines of the ruler and horizontal lines. To ensure that your edges remain clear and sharp when shading using a sharp pencil with a 4B tip to trace the areas of your ear that are shadowed the most dark – areas like deep valleys, huge folds, and those that protrude. The contours you draw should not be too dark as you want them not to show when you shade.

Step 8

The Darkest Shadows In the event that your pencil is sharp, you can use scratch paper to blunt it after which draw the shadows.

Step 9

Add a layer of light Graphite Utilize a sharp HB pencil to draw an uniform layer of graphite across your entire ear. If you’re looking for glowing white highlights, do not draw shadows on them.

Step 10

Making Mids More Dynamic Utilize the 2B Pencil to include your mids. Shade areas like recesses in the ear, small apex and folds with a slight angle.

Step 11

Blend Graphite Utilize Blend stumps to soften out your shadow. If your highlights aren’t dark enough then use your eraser that you have kneaded into one end, and then apply some graphite away.If the edges of your outline are blurred you can make use of sharp pencils to sharpen the edges and blend them gently if you need to. I’ve had several requests regarding the left ear and here’s the procedure to help those who struggle with the opposite side of your ear Do you enjoy this instructional video? Do share it with your fellow readers using the buttons below.
