How to draw eyes - tutorial for the portrait artist. Lessons on drawing and sketching the eye.
This is the pen & ink eye illustration that Jerry is so well known for. It is done using the “eyelashing” pen & ink technique. This uses a metal dip pen. The thick and thin strokes are achieved by putting pressure on the pen nib (pressure creates the thicker strokes and can only be done on the “down” stroke). In addition, Jerry used the direction of the strokes to show form.
