I recommend using a thicker drawing paper like bristol vellum or bristol smooth. Well here is the outline we will be working with. Fill in the pupil and lightly draw the highlight left of the pupil. Try to draw the outline very light, just enough for you to see it. Draw the basic outline for some hair that we’ll be adding around the eye.
Now fill in the area around the iris, this will be the eye lids. We will add more detail to this area later on. Use the 4b progresso pencil lightly and add it in layers, it will make it much easier when you have to erase.
Take your color blender, check if the tip has graphite. If it doesn’t, take your 4b progresso pencil and put down some graphite on a separate piece of paper and rub the color blender over it. This will add some graphite to the tip of color blender. Use this to add graphite to the whole iris, make sure not to add to the eye shine. The shine will be the brightest part of the eye so it will remain white. After you are done it should look like the image above.
