STUDENT'S MANUAL OF FASHION DRAWING LESSON XII
I N is the inner part. The student will observe that this is the other eye. Note the slant up to the outer side, also the diagonal line through its widest part. In this view the eye is turned away from the observer, which causes it to be foreshortened. lie sees the under side of the lashes, which show mostly on the far side, hiding part of the upper lid on that side.
In fashions it is customary to show lashes on the far side and the lid on the near side, one plane being hidden by the lashes.
Note the three planes on the upper lid and the two on the lower, as in the full eye.
If the eye is foreshortened, the ball and pupil must also be foreshortened, hence the ball is not a perfect round, but slightly oval. As the upper lid is over the lower, the slant of the ball backward is apparent. In the profile view it is still more so, as seen by the illustration.
the eyi (profile view
In the profile view we see but hall the eye, the lashes being on the far side and the lid on the near.
Be sure to draw the upper lid well over the lower, and make the ball an ellipse, slanting it backward. You w ill notice that the lid takes the shape ol a reverse curve, which is illustrated with an exaggerated line above the eye.
In fashions the upper part of the upper lid is often omitted, being indicated at the corners only.
the looking down eye (full front OW1
The full front, looking down eye slants slightly downward at the outside. It forms a reverse curve. See both eyes at the bottom of the lesson plate. A deep shadow is cast under the eye by the deep lashes, also by the eye being slightly open.
In the center the shadow is darkest. In the sleeping eye the lids are closed, hence the shadow is not as heavy.
The height is about one-half the length, the height being mostly on the upper lid, which is fully exposed, while the lower lid is hidden. Notice the five planes on the upper lid; reduce them to three.
the looking down eye (three-quak-tfr view;
Follow all instructions for the full looking-down eye but foreshorten as in the three-quarter open eye, part ol the reverse curve being lost.
the looking down eye profile view>
In the looking-down profile view the reverse curve still remains, but as the lid is closed, it slants downward not upward, the deepest shadow being on the far side where the laches show more prominently.
The eyebrow is on the forehead bone, being thicker at the inside, from there t slants upward, fitting around the forehead bone. It gradually grows thinner as it reaches its outer extremity.
Place the eye a proper distance from the nose. Place the eye a little lower than where the nose begins.
the mouth full fp.ont view)
Viewing the mouth directly in front one will observe the same shape and distance on each side of the center -ine.
Study one side carefully, beginning at the left, then reproduce the *ame effect on the other side.
The upper Up has two planes, while the lower lip has three. See the fines of direction of these planes marked above and below the mouth.
In the center of the upper lip two V's are formed, one at the top and the other at the bottom, the top V being deeper and
