Sorc Art Tips- Expressions: Keeping Eye Shape!

A little mini toot addressing an issue I've been seeing various artists have difficulty with lately. I hope you find this useful!
(For traditional media just draw the eyes lightly in pencil since you'll be erasing later.)

If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer in the comments below!

Simple but great tip! I think I've managed decently without it, but it's definitely something to give a chance especially in a comic or a series of expressions in general.

id say its also important to look out for the size, if you want to try this in a very small size, you may not see the result you want, of course thats a basic, but im too un-basic-doer (*noob masterrace)

Grat to see some expressions tutorial from you! This is always a problematic part of traditional drawing... One just can't change the opacity of paper :XD:

thats why you sketch it in super light then erase what you don't want before/after doing the hard lines :P practically the same thing.

I know, but many newbies artists have troubles with that. Still, you need the right pencil and paper combination not to mess up.

Awesome! More about expressions was one thing I wanted to include more of in the head guide but ran out of space.
