Our friends at Micador have created a detailed guide to drawing a human eye using their Colourush Pencils that you can find in our Andy Mixed Media Kit, Pablo Drawing Kit and Jean-Michel Mixed Media Kit.
We love the simplicity of their guides. Be sure to check out their blog for other great guides to stay busy with!

STEP 1: CREATE AN OUTLINE
Lightly sketch an almond shape. With the inner corner of the eye tilting down. Now draw your iris. Add interest by cutting off the top of the iris slightly, this prevents your eye looking as though it is blankly staring!
STEP 2: ADD SOME DETAILS
Draw a smaller circle for the pupil and draw a tiny angled square in the top right corner for a highlight! Draw a line above and below the eye for the eyelids, mimicking the shape of the eye. Leave more of a gap between the eye and upper lid.
STEP 3: SHADING
Fill in the pupil with a dark colours (black or dark brown). Play around with the tone and warmth of colours. Lightly shade the iris and add some lines around the iris, starting from the pupil going outwards. Add in some flecks of colours.
