Part of a bigger post but I'm going with this now. It won't suck...At least that's the plan. Eye notes from class lecture. The eye's a ball with sheets of skin covering it. Don't draw it as a symbol.
Below are some character eyes, Alice (from Alice In Wonderland), Kida (Atlantas), and Cat from CatDog. Each starts with a ball shape and the top lid lay over it. In Alice and Kida the eye seats in the head with a slight curved line at the bottom of the eye. This it true for many characters. Have fun drawing eyes! Thanks for stopping by.
