Follow my simple, detailed steps to draw a realistic eye in pencil. My method is aimed to help even the most complete beginner draw something they once thought was impossible.

If you get stuck on the shading part, please refer to my shading tutorials below. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :)
