Eye Tutorial at 3/4 View and Profile by lostie815 Eye Tutorial at 3/4 View and Profile by lostie815
Eye Coloring Tutorial by me | Other Eye Tutorials: 1 2 3 | My Resource list for Faces and Heads

For that Picasso one, I zoomed in 300% and drew each feature without looking at any of the rest of the face. The results were amusing. Anyway, don't know if any of this is helpful. I always start trying to make a tutorial for something specific but then wind up with a ton of random tips. This isn't everything you need to know about eyes from 3/4 view, it will work best alongside other eye tutorials and reference.

One thing that confuses me is what do you use to measure the distance of the closer eye from the farthest eye?

Would the one eye apart trick still be applicable?

Yeah, I think that still applies, just use the closer eye for the measurement, as it is slightly bigger.

This is great! 3/4 view is one of the hardest for me to draw. This should also help me with getting my irises and pupils to match up. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for making this tutorial, it was really helpful.

Also, you won't believe how happy I was when I reached the end and saw the hot guy again, because when I saw him earlier, I was like, “Damn, he looks like a sexy Booker DeWitt/Andrew Bird hybrid.”  Is the guy an OC of yours?  What's his name?  I need to marry him.

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Not a lot of people go into depth with eye tutorials when it comes to the 3/4 view. There are a lot of useful tips too! I've been struggling with drawing the eyes recently and I had so many questions on my head but you've answered them all! I really appreciate this tutorial! Thank you :')

How ironic!  I have been working on this problem in an oil painting and decided to visit this site.  This is the best advice I have found on working on the problem of eyes in profile.  You are a blessing and very talented with a super personality and gift to relate and teach.  Thank you for being a generous soul!

hey, "sid from ice age" and "too close together" are real variations... i am kinda "sid from ice age" eyes, and here is one "too close together" example: www.centralmodels.pt/newslette… (it's Rita Pereira, a portuguese top model)
appart from this, very nice tutorial! :)

I'm not addressing all types of face with those examples, more so just the sketch that I'm showing, so people can see what happens to a face when eyes are changed slightly.

With the too close together example, her eye is running into her nose, which is a problem Rita doesn't have. Rita's eyes are close, but not too close, because the structure of her face still works. Dreamworks uses characters with far apart eyes all the time with Sid, Eep, Moses, ect. and people use size difference in eyes as part of their style or to exaggerate perspective. The thing with those is that it's intentional. They're using eye placement as a part of their style or it's just part of the person's features. However when eyes are accidentally drawn out of place, it messes with the face's structure, and that's what I tried to show with the sketches.

^I had thought about putting some disclaimer like that in the tutorial, but it was already getting pretty long, anyway, thanks for your input!

Now I have the biggest urge to practice this considering 3/4 is one of my biggest weaknesses because of the 'squished' eye.
