Anime eyes are very different from natural eyes, but still tend to communicate personality. Then draw another shorter curve opposite the first.

Doll Eyes Drawing
Add slightly curved lines down from each end. The top curve is typically thicker than the bottom. Notice the mini-line at the end of the top eyelid. This is a characteristic of the anime style.Make a large white circle pointing in the direction your character is facing. Add another small circle on the bottom corner. Typically, the top shine is larger than the bottom one.

You can add more white spots if you like. If your eye is on the left, make the lashes point toward the right side, if it’s on the right side, make it point toward the left. Eyelashes in anime are bolder and less feathery than realistic drawings.

You can also add smaller lashes on the bottom curve if you like. Also, draw a thin line slightly above the thick curved line you did in the beginning. This indicates the eye socket and gives the eyes more depth. In the middle of the eye, shade a darker circle, for the pupil. Draw a partial oblong (not closed) that touches or overlaps the eyelashes. Draw two small horizontal ovals – bigger at the left than at the right. Draw another brushed curve for the eyelashes but smaller than the first and add another small curve that extends from the small eyelashes. Draw another brushed curve for the eyebrow, thicker at the right. Refine, then trace with a pen, and erase unnecessary lines. Draw a half circle with a small circle in the middle. Draw curves to emphasize the skin surrounding the eye. Draw a brushed curve that evenly varies in thickness – thickest at the middle and thinnest at the left end. Draw a slight curve, about as much as you would draw for a resting eyebrow. Add a small line from the outer edge of that, pointing inside and going diagonally downward. Draw the bottom lash with a small dash, curved a bit upward to show your character’s cheek. Don’t draw the whole thing, only a large fraction of it. The rest of the iris is tucked under the eyelid. Draw one, two, or three different circles in various sizes. They should overlap somewhere you want the pupil to be, but should take up a good bit of the iris too.

You can either draw a full ellipse, or only part of it, depending on how much of the eye is obscured by the lash line. This ellipse should be on the tall and skinny side and centered as well as possible. The parts that go through the highlights should be erased. Draw a stroke every once in a while to show how they curve. There will be less of these on the bottom than on the top since the first is thinner.

4 Ways To Draw Anime Eyes

Using the guidelines you just drew, thicken both of the lashes. The bottom lashes are much shorter and sparse than their counterparts, so keep that in mind. The pupil can either be black or a really dark version of the iris color. Draw an oval/circle along the line between the pupil and the iris, and add more inside the pupil. Colour everything, leaving out the circles. The circles reflect the light off the white background, giving the viewer the impression of shining eyes. If you are drawing in your own style, feel free to choose any colors and combinations you want. For example, if you were aiming for a moody or aggressive character, you would draw smaller, thinner eyes. If you wanted a loud, bubbly character, you would probably draw much larger, defined eyes. For a narrow, slender face, place the eyes somewhat closer together. Adjust as needed and remember to leave some space between the eyes for the nose.

There is no harm in trying again and again until you have mastered the drawing; it’s the only way to gain the ability. Just adjust the size of the eyes until you think they look good for your character. If you don’t have tracing paper, just keep drawing and rubbing out. If one eye is a bit bigger than the other, it’ll look better once you shade it in. When drawing the eyes, make sure they aren’t too big. If they end up to big, they may cause all of the attention to go to the eyes. Plus it wouldn’t look right if the eyes took up too much space on the face. Eyes hold a lot of character, so spend some more time on them.


Eyes are normally one basic color with many accompanying shades, and another relative colour. Ask other people to look at your drawing. Different perspectives from different people help spot mistakes. Don’t make too many shiny spots; the average is 2, but don’t be afraid to add a bit more. No shiny spots also help if you are trying to make your character sleepy, feeling faint, possessed/hypnotized, etc. To get that drowsy, just out of bed look, draw the eyes a little bit closed and ( if you want) draw dark circles under the bottom eye area. Bigger eyes tend to be drawn on female characters. Eyes for male characters can be thinner and with no eyelashes. Make sure the eyes show what emotion or how he/she feels. For example, if the character is feeling mad make sure you draw the eyebrows at angles. If you have your colors for eye but don’t know to apply them, go darker by the pupil and get lighter as you go outward.Try to make sure that the eyes are of the same size. Draw squares or rectangles of the same size if you need an outline. When drawing a manga where there are mostly male characters, in styles like shoujo, it’s okay to play up the eyelashes a bit and make them thicker and more intricate than they usually would be. Make sure that when doing 3/4 views, the eyes are proportionate. Then, draw a large oval extending up from the bottom curve. Inside of the oval, draw a circle at the top and a circle at the bottom.

Next, add some eyelashes extending off the top curve. Finally, shade in your eye so the center of the oval is black and the 2 circles in the oval are white. It will take a bit of practice to get a good handle on drawing eyes. Draw an almond shape with one corner tapering downwards. Draw another almond shape of the same size. The space between these eye shapes is equal to the length of one almond shape. Erase the guidelines and draw a circle inside each of the eye shapes. The diameter of the circles is equal to the height of the almond shapes. Leave some space between the bottom of the circle and the lower edge of the eye shape. Draw an arc for each eye to create tear ducts. Draw these from the base of the tear duct passing between the iris and lower eyelid going to the upper lash line. Don’t forget to draw an arc for the upper lid. Darken the pupils and erase the part of the iris that intersected with the upper eyelids.Lightly erase the guidelines and start shading using your pencil. Darken the lashlines, upper lid fold and the pupils. The eyeballs should be shaded very lightly. These lines should should look like rays radiating out of the pupils. Darken (smudge effect) the upper portion of the iris of both eyes. To add highlights, use a kneaded or putty eraser. The lower lashes should be thinner and shorter than the upper eyelash. To create the round catchlights in the eyes, use correction fluid or white paint to make the dot. Instead of drawing the eyelashes hair by hair, anime lashes can be drawn by one very thick arc. Erase the guidelines and draw oblongs for the iris. Draw smaller oblongs inside the iris to make the pupils. Leave some space between the bottom of the pupils and the lower edge of the iris but make the top edges touch. Draw ovals to make the catchlights of your anime eyes. Fill the lower portion of the iris with the color of your choice. Create shadows underneath the upper eyelash. Also, if your friend makes fun of your drawings, they’re not a very good friend. If you draw guide lines across the face at key points, this will help you make sure the top, bottom, and corner of the eyes line up.

You can also draw vertical guide lines to make it easier to see how wide each eye is compared to the other. Remember that if you are drawing the face at an angle, the eyes will not appear identical, and trying to match them up will actually make them look uneven!

This holds true for drawing matching eyes. Just keep practicing and soon you’ll be drawing matching eyes.

You can also use charcoal, white charcoal, and a blending stump instead. Then, close (but not touching) the top left corner, draw a smaller circle. The bigger the circles in the eye, the cuter. Any local art store should have a variety of pencils to choose from, or you can order them online from many retailers. If you are just starting out, you don’t need to spend money on fancy pencils yet.

You can use a regular pencil, or even experiment with other things you have lying around like pens, crayons, etc. If you have an art class at school, the teacher may also have some art pencils you can borrow in class and try out. Make sure you have all the supplies you need. Never try to make the other eye exactly the same after drawing the first it will never work. Practice your drawing skills so you don’t mess up when you are drawing. Then, draw a large circle inside each of the almond shapes, leaving some space between the bottom of the circles and the bottom of the shapes. Next, draw an arc near each inside corner for the tear ducts and a line that starts at the base of each tear duct and runs along the lower eyelid. Finally, draw a smaller circle inside each of the circles you drew earlier to make the pupils. To learn how to draw anime eyes, scroll down!
