Who here is a fan of Disney?
*frantically waves hand high in the air* Meeeeee!
I absolutely adore Disney movies and characters, not just because of the intriguing plots, princes, princess and villains, but also because the sceneries and the characters are just so beautiful. Disney characters are one of my favourite things to draw, especially the girls from Frozen and Tangled. Their eyes are just so big and hair is so silky!
I love, love, love the colour of Rapunzel’s eyes and I knew that I just had to draw them for today’s post. I feel like I could just get lost staring into those shiny bright emerald-green eyes…
Anyway, today I’m sharing with you a neat little tutorial on how to draw Rapunzel’s eyes! It took me around an hour, but that was mainly because I had to keep stopping and taking photos. Other than that, it was really fun to draw. Hopefully you’ll find this helpful.
- Black inky pen
- Coloured pencils: black, brown, red, dark green, light green
- Green pen (optional)
Method: (See steps down below)
- Using a pencil, draw two curved lines next to each other to form the top half of her eyes.
- Then, draw another two lines underneath to form the shape of the eyes. Then, draw two curved lines above the eyes to make eye-lids.
- Draw a circle inside each eye to make the iris. This iris should be closer to the inner corner of the eye.
- Outline the iris and outer corners of the eyes using a black pen. Then, draw a large black circle in the middle of each iris for the pupil.
- Add in some long eyelashes towards the outer corners of the eyes. Then, outline her eyelids using pen.
- Using a light green pencil, colour in the iris of the eye (remember to leave a white space in the top left corner of the iris to make her eyes glow). Then, using black pen, draw a few lines inside the iris to add some detail.
- Add some more colour and definition to the iris by using a dark green pencil.
- Use a brown pencil to shade in her eyelids and the outer corners of the eyes.
- Next, use a red pencil to shade in her eyelids and outer corners of the eyes. (This adds warmth).
- Using a black pencil, lightly shade the corners of the white parts of the eyes to make it look 3D.
- Use a green pen to define the colour of the iris.
Yay, you’re done!
How did your drawing turn out? Here’s a close-up of mine:
