About This Class

They say that eyes are the window to the soul. In illustration, this is especially true.

Whether you are completely new to drawing and have never drawn an eye in your life, or you are simply looking to breathe new life into your characters in the form of different expressions and emotions, this could be the course for you!

In this course, we will go through the step-by-step process I use to draw different types of eyes, as well as a smattering of tips and tricks of the trade that I have found helpful over the years. We will talk about some different eye shapes, touch on some of my favorite methods of drawing eyelashes, and discuss a basic overview overview of how eyes and eyebrows work in combination with each other (and the rest of the face) to create different emotions. 

By the time you have finished this class (and the class project), I hope that you will be equipped with all you need to infuse the eyes of your characters and drawings with more expression than ever before!
