20 Easy Eye Drawing Ideas

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you some easy eye drawing ideas that beginner artists can try to practice drawing.

I love drawing eyes but I also feel like they are a challenge for me to draw.

That’s why creating this blog post was great practice for me!

I hope it serves as good practice for you too if you are wanting to get better at drawing eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

The eye drawings included in this blog post aren’t going to be too realistic.

I wanted to create drawings that could be recreated by beginner artists so they’re going to be simple but with a creative twist to them.

I hope you have lots of fun drawing them!

Drawing Tips: First start off with a pencil sketch. When you are satisfied with your sketch, go over the lines with an ink pen. When the ink dries, erase the sketch underneath to reveal your final drawing!

This drawing tip is just a suggestion, but feel free to use whatever medium or drawing style you like!

Now, let’s get to our eye drawings! I hope you enjoy!

1. Heart Eyes

Let’s start off this blog post with a simple drawing of eyes with hearts in them.

2. Celestial Eye

I was listening to Drops of Jupiter when I was creating this drawing and I think it came out so beautiful!

If you ever don’t know what to draw next, I recommend listening to music. Music is one the best ways to get creativity and inspiration to flow to you.

3. The Eyes are the Window to the Soul

This is a drawing I created for a previous blog post and thought it would be a great addition for this blog post.

I believe that you can see a lot about a person from their eyes.

Do you also think the same?

4. Step-By-Step Eye Drawing

Here is a more realistic style of drawing eyes.

I have tried to simplify it through steps, so I hope this helps!

For Step 1, draw the shape of the eye as shown below.

For Step 2, draw the tear duct and iris.

For Step 3, we are going to draw the light shining on the eyes.

For Step 4, draw the eyelashes as shown below.

Now we’re going to start adding some value to our drawing.

Color in your pupil while leaving the light spots we drew in Step 3 white.

Also shade in the outer areas of the eye (near where it touches the skin).

5. Flower Eyes

I love drawing flowers as well, so here are eyes with flowers around it.

6. Anime Eyes

Let’s draw some anime-style eyes next!

When drawing female vs male anime eyes, I usually add eyelashes to my female eyes.

For male eyes, I keep them without eyelashes (Stopping at Step 6 in this tutorial)

9. Eyes as the Sun

This is a random drawing I made of eyes that look like the sun.

I like to think that, just like how the sun gives light to the flowers, our eyes give warmth and light to the ones we gaze upon too.

20. Closed Eyes

I wanted to draw closed eyes but it turned into a crying eyes drawing again.

But I think this drawing is still meaningful so I decided to post it.

This drawing reminds me that there is something else we can’t see yet on the other side of our pain and sadness.

If I could tell these words to my younger self, I would: There is something beautiful you can’t see yet waiting on the other side.
