How to draw older eyes


Martha Jane Lovedahl asked me how to draw older eyes. Basically they are the same as before, but the eyelashes aren’t so pronounced and the eyebrows can get a bit thinner and there will be more lines around the eyes too. Also, gravity has an effect, slowly pulling the bottom lid down and making the top lids more hooded.

The effect is more obvious with the rest of the face which will be also full of more lines and character. You can try using a softer, more jiggly/crumbly line too.

In case you missed this on YouTube a while back I’ve added it as an extra to this course on Vimeo, so you won’t be bothered by the Advertisements. It might also be useful in conjunction with Assignment 4 – Standing Out From The Crowd.
