How to Draw Manga Eyes

Artist: Dawn / December 31, 2007

Step 1.

Begin with a horseshoe type of hoop. This is basically the base of the eye.

Step 2.

Above that hoop, draw a long curved line with a hook at the left end.

Step 3.

At the bottom of the eye, draw a straight line with a hook line at the end. This is the bottom of the eye. Manga eyes don't enclose so don't attach these lines to one another! Add a cornered circle at the top left of the eye. This will be the shinny    

Step 4.

Add the black oval pupil and thicken three lashes at the right top side of the eye. This is a female manga eye right?!

Step 5.

Now, add the lid at the top of the whole eye. This makes the manga eye's real and not 'all' cartoony.

Step 6.

For the finishing step, erase some mess ups and you should be done with clean lineart. Ink in your pencil lines and you could come out with this. Comment this tutorial to let me know if I should make an eye coloring tutorial. Thanks viewers!

Step 7.

Just, an extra, color in your eye with a sharp color and enjoy your manga eye! I hope this tutorial was helpful to everyone! Enjoy!
