Patreon Tutorial: How To Draw Animal Eyes

EDIT: GOODNESS GRACIOUS A DAILY DEVIATION!! I'm absolutely honored!! Thank you so much JenFruzz for the feature! :D

Previous tutorial:  Patreon Tutorial: How To Draw Paws by ARVEN92

Hello and welcome to a brand new Patreon tutorial! :D I will never stop saying just how grateful I am for your incredible support! We even managed to hit (and currently surpass!) the 100 Patreon milestone! THANK YOU so much <3 <3 

Like last  month's tutorial, this was sponsored by not one, but TWO super generous Patrons - Bethany and RedWolfDreaming! Thank you!

They both suggested I talk about how to draw eyes, so I went and did a lot of research on the subject!

I hope the material I provide is interesting, insightful and helpful :D Enjoy your read!

I upload monthly tutorials ONE WEEK in advance on Patreon!

I have this useful phrase but I don't remember where I got it from: "Eyes on the front, time to hunt. Eyes on the side, time to hide."

That was a bit of interesting information about the location of the eyes. I'd never even remotely thought about that until I saw it here.

eee mi sono reso conto che potevo anche scriverlo in italiano, dopo aver rivisto il tutorial una seconda volta e aver notato il bidone xD

beautiful, helpful and interesting :)

I heard somewhere that one reason why humans have so visible sclerae is that they facilitate non-verbal communication and guessing where the other person is looking at :D

Thanks! I have an OC (Rune) in my fantasy saga 'Foresworn'. She has canine eyes, mono lidded with no eyebrows and a large iris, but I've never implemented that aspect of her aesthetic; this helps!

Lol, I saw this in my notifications and thought "haven't I seen that somewhere before?" congrats on the DD! You've earned it :D

This is a great tutorial! I think it’ll be very helpful in making my feline eyes better, and I live the way you explained things

Nivryz's avatar

I've looked through a lot of eye tutorials and art tutorials in general. But this was probably the one that actually made things "click" in my mind. I love that you explained WHY certain things exist, and what artists should be thinking of, rather than just "this is how you make an eye"
