I want to share my working process for my creature eye so i made some work in progress shots. For the Grounding i used the good old Copic Markers and then worked out the details with Farber Castell Polychromos. For the White highlights i simply used opaque white from Dr Ph Martins. I hope you have like a look over my shoulder and see how easy it is to get to the endresult
This is what I do at school. lD 38 styles from realistic to anime. (cartoony styles were too simple for me to include. dun liek) I tried to vary a bit but a lot of them might look the same. TvT But feel free to reference from these. ;D
Tips on drawing eyes: - There are uncountable numbers of ways to draw eyes! It is easy to make up a style if you just try! - The iris of the eye (coloured part) is always partially covered by the eye lid on a real relaxed eye - One or two lines can be drawn to indicate eyelids. (but dont draw them too far apart or too dark!) - Where ever the light is in the eye should be where the light source is
Well now this is exactly what was asking for,and today his birthday,I did that just for him. I just thought that you want more "practical" gift or more usefull idk xD Hope you like it and it is helpfull But I guess you all guys can actually try it. I tried to make it step by step description for slow and steady progress. --- Yes,its just three same dragon pose sketches I did on one A4 paper and added text. Its quite hard to make to make absolutely identical dragons in traditional. But I was away from pc and did these :>
P.S. You can ask something about this tutorial or send me your result its really intresting if I have some skills to teach or explain "how-to" to the people. P.P.S. Yeah I see that "ahrd" on first frame but Im too lazy to fix it now xD
I created this as a reference for myself while practicing profiles and I thought somebody might find it useful. The numbers are the actual measurements in centimeters. Drawn in graphite on sketch paper, about 15 cm square.
A few things to note:
Tip of Nose to Ear = Brow to Chin Bottom of Nose halfway between Brow and Chin Eye 1/3 below Brow Lip 1/3 below Nose Upper Lip lines up with Forehead Front of Eye lines up with back of Nose and Lip Ear falls between Brow and bottom of Nose
This can all vary between different faces, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, but usually not to an extreme.
