The Secrets to Drawing – The Eye — 13 Comments

  1. I loved the instructions. They made so much more sense than any directions for drawing eyes I have ever watched. They were logical and easy to follow.

  2. I loved the checkmark rule! Really made it easy to follow. I have always been amazed at eye drawings, as many say they are the gateway to the soul and you can create so many feelings from drawing an eye. Proper placement of the highlights really makes them pop! Great video.

  3. Hi Matt …. Just finished looking at the “Drawing the Eye” video. I also just completed a drawing of the eye in my scratchpad. You make it look too easy! I am keeping a record of my drawings, and when I finished with my latest drawing of the eye, I looked back at a sketch that I made of the eye approximately a month ago. The one I did a month ago actually looks better than the one I just made. This makes it easy to get frustrated, however, I think I am still on the learning curve. I will keep trying. Thanks for your help!!

    • Hi LaMar! Yes, every drawing that we create can’t be always be the best. But the important thing is that you gain the experience and learn from it. Drawing is a life long endeavor, and perfection is unlikely to ever be reached.

  4. As usual Matt, great video and in depth instruction of drawing eyes, I love eyes because as we know they are the Windows to the soul.
    The markings on the iris around the pupil was great as to the starburst pattern you see when you look at your eyes 🙂 It was easier to manage than I thought, strangely the eyelashes I seemed to find the hardest just getting them to flow along the eyelids, but knowing the “check mark rule ” was great.
    After completing this course eventually as I should of had it done by now, my health issues affected the rate I’ve gone through it, but after finishing it I’m going onto doing your portrait course which will a great transition from these facial features.looking forward to starting my 2nd course with you 👍👍
