How to draw eyelashes Drawing eyelashes digital might seem challenging But a view tips and insights will make drawing eyelashes easy! In this video I’ll show you how to draw lashes in Procreate but these tips also apply to other digital art programs like Photoshop and even to traditional drawing and painting I have already painted this eye, so we’re ready to add the lashes One of the things that are important when drawing lashes is the placement of the lashes on the eyelids Notice how the eyelids have a certain thickness I’ve marked the planes of the eyelids these touch when you close your eyes It would be quite inconvenient if your lashes would grow there we all know how annoying it is to have an eyelash in your eye The eyelashes grow right on the edge of the plane here The lashes have a slight curl, they’ll curl down a bit before going up when it comes to the upper eyelashes anyway I paint these lashes using a dark grayish brown tone I rarely use pure black for this The eyelashes often clump together a bit sometimes even more when mascara is used Slowly build up layers of lashes and makes sure you vary the size and direction a bit Do the same thing for the lower lashes The lower eyelashes are usually lighter than the upper eyelashes also there are not as many lashes on the lower eyelid as on the upper eyelid, make sure to keep this in mind Notice how the density of the lashes varies you can see that there are more lashes on the left side here When you move towards the corner of the eye the lashes get shorter, thinner and
more scarce Varying the size, thickness and placement like this, makes the eyelashes look more believable If you make all the eyelashes the same thickness and direction like this the lashes won’t look very realistic Lastly, when drawing eyelashes digital, make sure you paint the lashes on a separate layer this way you can easily adjust them and you’ll be able to paint under and behind them if needed If you make a new layer on top of you eyelashes layer and select layer clipping mask you can lay over color on the lashes For example you can lighten up some lashes to make them look a bit more subtle Have fun drawing digital eyelashes!
