I want to present you with a new useful lesson in which you will learn how to draw closed eyes. The lesson is designed for beginners and includes nine easy steps.
In this tutorial, you will use guidelines to position all the elements correctly. Auxiliary lines should be even and thin so that they can be easily removed later.
Please note that the distance between the eyes should be approximately equal to the width of one eye. Consider this feature in this lesson and in all your subsequent drawings. Also, make sure that the eyes are completely symmetrical.
