Speaking of eyes; how about a neat lesson for all you folks out there that want to learn the ins and outs to making eyes, but not in an anime style. I have quite a few lessons on eyes, but none of them are really geared towards the novice or beginning artist. That is why I wanted to make a tutorial on "how to draw eyes for kids", step by step. In this submission I take on the ever complexity of making eyes that a kid or novice artist can handle or understand. It’s hard enough not knowing where to start, but when you have to figure out how to align the eyes so they are portioned with each other and how to make them the same size, you bring the complex part of drawing eyes, up to unmanageable. I can remember getting so overwhelmed when it came to creating eyes for the faces I used to draw. It took me a long, long time before I even started to have the eyes aligned with one another before I could even draw the shapes of eyes somewhat neat, and effectively. I know how hard this subject is in the drawing world, and that is why I tried my best to show you all the technique to drawing eyes for kids. I’m sure you will still hit a bump in the road, but at least you can proceed forward over that bump instead of being stuck. I hope you all love this lesson as much as I did making it. Be sure to leave a comment, rating, and even fav this tutorial if it was helpful. Thanks guys and enjoy your drawing day!
