Draw a Realistic Female Eye step by step

 For those of you out there who are interested in drawing portraits or fictional faces, but have problems drawing realistic female eyes, here's a brief guide.

Draw a Realistic Female Eye
Draw step by step


  1. 1
    Draw a long, slightly curved line. This is the top edge of the eye.
    Draw step by step
  2. 2
    Draw another one below, more intensely curved. This is the bottom edge and these lines should be connected at one corner. This corner is the outer corner of the eye. These lines at the inner corner must be slightly parted.
    Draw step by step
  3. 3
    Add another intensively curved line, this is the top eyelid.
    Draw step by step
  4. 4
    Draw the "circle" of the eye, this consists of the iris (the outer ring) and the pupil (the black in the middle). Mind this detail: the iris isn't completely shown; it is partially covered by the eyelid, this gives the sense of depth.
    Draw step by step
  5. 5
    Draw the eyelashes. Keep in mind, you must draw them on the edges of both eyelids, more on the bottom than on the top. Try to keep the same distance between them and make them approximately under the same angle. Draw the top eyelashes longer than the bottom.
    Draw step by step
  6. 6
    Draw the base line for the eyebrow. It should begin a bit before the inner corner and end at the end of the outer corner. Make it as angled as you want. A more distinct angle opens the eye more, but also gives the "fake cosmetics" kind of look, so try to achieve a balance (unless you're drawing elves, this is where intense angles are very welcome).
    Draw step by step
  7. 7
    Add two circles - one on the iris and one on the pupil, to achieve the effect of the light reflection. These can be as near each other or as far apart as you like.
    Draw step by step
  8. 8
    Add another short, curved line below and left of the inner corner, this is the line of the nose.
    Draw step by step
  9. 9
    Now fill in the eyebrow, using a great number of short, curved motions; this way it will look like actual hair. It should thin out as you advance toward the outer corner. (This one turned out ugly, though x.x) Color the pupil and the iris, leaving the previously drawn circles white (light reflection). Please notice the color of the iris grows darker while moving upwards; this is because the top eyelid casts a shadow on it.
    Draw step by step
  10. 10
    If you want to make your eye look like it has makeup applied, color the top eyelid (eyeshadow effect), and darken the edges just below the eyelashes (eyeliner effect).


  • Remember the proportions: on a face, the space between the eyes equals the length of another eye, and the vertical length of the face equals three lengths of the nose. The ears are aligned with the nose. The length of one eye equals the length of the lips.
  • Please bear in mind these are only the most basic steps. Feel free to alter your drawing in any way you see fit.
