Anime and Manga Eyestyles by Joichiroll Anime and Manga Eyestyles by Joichiroll
:new: VOTE your series for Anime/Manga eyestyles 2nd set - [link]

Here we go folks, this is for :iconmayshing:'s 1000 Manga/Anime Eyes Project

Time spent 3-5 hours, randomly grabbing my favourite manga off the shelves, from shojo to shonen and even my sister's yaoi collection. Some of them you might even recognise if you own the series.

Just mind you, these aren't cut-and-paste drawings. I did a recreation of the artist's style with my own ink pens and pencils. I was able to list out most of the titles, or some of them which i only knew the author's name. (Some of them i improvised its inked form, such as Kanon and Abyss)

Alot of styles can be repetative, so i had to be really specific. It ranges from complex styles and to the simplest styles.

This picture's purpose is for observation and as a record on how many eyestyles there are in the Anime world and to clear up the misconception that 'Anime all looks the same'. Feel Free to use for reference or inspirations :)

Tools I Used: 2B Pencil, Micron Pens and Faber-Castell artist pens

AmusiaPrussia: WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the -government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other people on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't.

This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or I'm sorry
Example 1: Jenny didn’t believe this and deleted it without even reading. the whole thing! A few days. later on the monday night, she was woken up by loud footsteps. and heavy breathing, there was. Clarissa standing there with a huge knif

I noticed the absence of PASWG, but it's still amazing.
Joichiroll Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks for pointing that out, I'll make a 2nd version and add PASWG to it!

If you check out Berserk, an action manga which I am...... obsessed with, you'll see a different style than all of those above. It's more realistic and detailed, typical of Miura.

(The first few chapters don't really show it though, because his art style rapidly improves.)

Mine is like the Ouran High :)
DarkIndigoSkyes Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
hahaha my eye style is really similar to the Demon Diary one xD
Junsopheii Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's so cool how you can actually replicate the artists' styles so well. Haruhi's eyes from Ouran High School Host Club have always been hard to draw for me, but you did it really nicely!
Joichiroll Featured By Owner Edited Apr 29, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Hey thanks so much for the compliment, I'm glad they look like the artist's work :)

When I was growing up, I would fixate on how the eyes were drawn and studied their techniques. Oh some are pretty tricky. The technique that Bisco Hatori uses is ultra-fine pen nibs, using the sizes between 01 to 0.05 , the pens can be any art brand (Sakura Micron, Copic fineliner.etc), for the eye shading. But it takes alot of practice and steady hand.

Do you have “The Gentlemen's Alliance:Cross” eyes (especially Ushio's eyes they're so deep) or “Fullmoon: O Sagashite” eyes? I love those two series oh and “Sakurahime” ( or “Sakura Hime”? Cuz the plot takes place in the taika era I think, where in the story youkai and gods and waging and soccery exsits and the MC is called Sakura, the grand daughter of princess Kayuga, the princess of the moon i think. She is very high classed in the story.) Any way, you should read those manga. They are just too good with genius plots and stories. ALL PRAISE ARINA TANUMERA( the writer of the beautiful series.)
Joichiroll Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
I don't have those eyes but I can definitely look into seeing if I can replicate them ^_^
