Learning how to draw an ear may looks hard, but actually it is very easy. M ost of the anime characters ears you see on TV are very simple. The artists like to keep the ears very plain. The top of the ears should be just below the top of the eyes. The ear lobes should be below the bottom eyelashes. Never drawthe ear toward like they are actually sticking out. When the outline are done for the ears, the next step is to draw some curvy lines within the ears. The ears style work the same for both male and female character. In addition, one may add some ear rings to the ear lobes when drawing a female character.
When the levator is completely relaxed, the eyes close. The curved line of the lower lid becomes the line for both lids. The joined lashes are more prominent, and though lashes are often left out of drawings of the face (being so delicate), in this case their doubled thickness makes them a substantial enough form to include.
In lowest position, the eye is seen as two curved lines with a dark space in between iris will be vague or invisible within shadow. Space between lines thickest in center (where the iris is) thins at either end. Note how curve of lid lines starts with straight part at inner corner (4), then turns into a full curve around eyeball. Unfolded upper lid with shallow crease or two is at the level where lid normally ends (5). Difference at this stage closed eye has one curved line (with lashes) versus the open eye, which has two curved lines and a dark space (seen through lashes) with crease below. C. Further down. As the gaze drops further, our view of the eye is more restricted by low angle and by increasing shadow. Note that opening (diagram, left) is just wide enough for pupil. Crease deepens below lower lid (2), while upper lid is more fully exposed (3). Lashes of upper lid in
3DEEPENTHESKINTONES,ADDTHE EYEBROWS AND LASHES Continue to build the color of the skin tone. Use quick strokes with Black to create the eyebrows and eyelashes, tapering the pencil stroke at the end. Study the length and direction of the different types of hairs, and practice drawing them on a separate piece of paper. It requires a very short, quick stroke to make the line taper at the end. Keep a very sharp point on your pencil, especially for the short, sparse lower lashes. You saw in the previous exercise how important the pencil line is to creating eyelashes and eyebrows. It is the same with drawing hair. The pencil lines represent the length of the hair, and they must be drawn in accordingly.
Step 4- Still working with the side of the pencil, the artist darkens the shadows with clusters of broad, parallel strokes. He accentuates the shadows around the eye, making the eye sockets seem deeper. He also darkens the shadowy edges of the eyelids and adds a few dark touches to suggest eyelashes. The iris becomes a darker tone and the pupil becomes darker still highlighted with a white dot made by the tip of a kneaded rubber eraser. Just above the lower lid, a hint of tone makes the white of the eye look rounder. Rhythmic, curving strokes complete the eybrow. Step 4. To complete the drawing, the artist builds up the shadow around the eye with thick strokes, using the side of the pencil lead. He strengthens the deep shadow that's cast by the eye socket on the upper lid and then darkens the shadow beneath the lower lid. He darkens the iris and pupil, deepens the shadow that's cast by the upper lid, and adds delicate touches of tone to the white of the eye. Most of the eye is in...
Notice particularly that the nostrils have grown and the upper lip appears to be somewhat shorter. The ear grows considerably during this period and the one which follows. I believe the ear is fully developed by the time the child is ten or twelve. The space from the nose to the car still appears quite wide. Lashes arc quite long. The hair grows quite well over the temples.
In this lesson are given some of the lines used in fashions and the student must become very familiar with them. When one can draw these lines well on a separate paper, he is in condition to ink in his work. Fine lines should be used for faces, arms, hands, etc., and very tine lines for eyelashes. Several fine lines instead of one wider line give the eye a soft expression. Study these lines in the fashion papers.
The symbols are also ready to be called out when you draw a face, for example. The efficient left brain says, Oh yes, eyes. Here's a symbol for eyes, the one you've always used. And a nose Yes, here's the way to do it. Mouth Hair Eyelashes There's a symbol for each. There are also symbols for chairs, tables, and hands.
The eyelashes do not count for much in drawing a head, except in so f1a0r9as they affect the tone impression. In the first place they shade the white of the eye when the light is above, as is usually the case. They are much thicker on the outer than on the inner side of the eyelids, and have a tendency to grow in an outward direction, so that when the light comes from the left, as is shown by arrow, Fig. 5, the white of the eye at A1 will not be much shaded, and the light tone will run nearly up to the top. But at B4, which should be the light side of this eye, the thick crop of eyelashes will shade it somewhat and the light will not run far up in consequence, while B3, A2 will be in the shade from the turning away from the direction of the light of the spherical surface of the whites of the eyes.
What do I mean by symbols Picture the lollipop head on the stick neck. Large, staring eyes rimmed with spike lashes. The nose with ball-bearing nostrils. Hairstyle worn simply but efficiently on the tip-top of the head. It works. It says face. But is it art Are those symbols based on actual knowledge of the human face We know our own face and the faces of close friends and family-but long ago, we stopped paying attention to specifics.
Drawing the eyes is probably the most important thing for an anime character. Therefore, we have decided to break it into two parts. The first part will show you the type of eyes are available for drawing and the second part will teach you how to draw the eyes in detail. There are thousand of ways to draw an eye, but for now you only need to know the three basic type of eyes oval, triangle and rectangle. The three styles work for both male and female character. The oval eyes are your typical Happy Anime Character or Cute type as some of you may call them. It's probably the most common eyes you will see when you are watching your favorite anime show. The triangle eyes are your typical Mean Anime Character or Your Bad Guys Character . You don't see much triangle eyes when watching anime, but occasionally you see some bad guys with triangle eyes. The square rectangle are your Average Anime Character or Innocent Girl Boy looking type. You will notice that most of the anime you see on TV...
EYEBROW LASHES uppERLW EYEBROW LASHES uppERLW Practise drawing eyes in various positions and from different viewpoints, as shown by the examples on this page. The female eye usually has long and thick eyelashes, while eyebrows are well outlined and thin. The iris of a child looks very big compared to the eyelids.
The deep lashes on. the upper lid cause a shadow which hides the eye still more, giving it a soft expression. By continuing the ball through the upper lid one can prove if the ball is hidden enough. The lower lid is soft and delicate and is often omitted in fashions. In pen and ink drawings you will observe a few lashes suggested on the upper lid, if so, draw them on the corresponding sides of both eyes. Some artists indicate the lashes all around both lids. If done correctly, this is very effective.
