Step 1

First, make two grey balls. Make sure you have the right colour (I circled it) and make sure your balls are the same distance from each other, as if you can stick a ball between them.


Step 2

Next, change colour to black and transpaerncey to 46%. Make two triangle thingys on the middle and outside of each circle as shown.



Step 3

Go over the triangles until you like the way they're shaded.


Step 4

Next, change transparencey to 65% and second biggest pencil line. Choose a colour to make the eyes and fill in the grey circles.


Step 5

Make the colour much much darker and change transparencey to 28%. Shade the top or bottom of the eyes three or four times. (shading depends on where your light source is coming from)



Step 6

Make colour as bright as possible and highlight tops or bottoms two or three times.


Step 7

Switch to black and draw over pupils until it is shaded the way you like. Depending how much light you decide to put into your setting/picture determines how big an animals pupil is going to be, and this also goes for humans or any organism. If it's a dark setting, the pupils will be large and clower to the edges of the iris. If it's a bright setting, the pupils will be smaller circles, or in a house cat's case, be tinier slits. Wild cats pupils are round and never narrow like a house cat's eyes are.


Step 8

Switch to white and change transparentcey to 51%. Make highlights on eye.


Step 9

Lower transparencey to 28% and add something called "reflected light" on the opposite side of your original highlight. This makes the object look round. Switch to black and add outline to eyes. Make it as thick or as thin as you like.


Step 10

And there you have it! You've drawn Cat's Eyes!
