First sketch in the contours and surfaces of the eye. The pencil strokes are subsequently worked into the illustration.
Position the portrait template to cover part of the iris. Then spray a spot over it.
You can now spray out the rest of the iris with black using the circle template.
The intermediate results achieved with this loose template technique are apparent here.
Now spray out the pupil area with a larger circle template.
Add light shading below the lid.
Using transparent black, spray in the lower shading in different phases with the aid of the template.
Then relocate the template to create the other arc of the eye.
Shape the upper eyelid with another curve.
You can see the intermediate results here.
Add additional shading freehand outside the eye to indicate the facial area. Use another template curve to spray in additional details.
Lend the upper lid greater structure with an eraser pencil.
A coloured pencil is particularly suitable for depicting the eyelashes.
You can see the additional details here in the pupil, the reflection and the structure of the skin.
And here’s the intermediate stage of the motif!
You can use a brush at the end to paint in the eyebrows.
Practice handling the Portrait Stencil Set with this second eye illustration.
A template is positioned for the pupil and one for the bright reflection. Now spray the paint on from the centre outwards.
The reflection in the eye can be accentuated further with another edge of the template.
You can see here how the circle template is deployed.
The pupil also needs some color. You are also sure to find the right curve on the template for this purpose. Carefully spray a light run from the outside inwards using transparent black.
Now continue with the upper lid.
Using the template, keep looking for a suitable curve again and again, partially spraying light shading in each case to give shape to the eyeball. Spray a light shadow from the upper lid to lend volume to the eyeball.
Spray in softer shading freehand. You can also indicate the connection between the eye and skin with thin paint layers.
The contours are also accentuated on the lower lid using the portrait template.
The eyebrows are developed with a fine brush and misted over with transparent black. You can lend the eye additional structure, light edges and details with an eraser pencil.
An electric eraser enables the achievement of very bright light pinpoints.
I hope you have a lot of fun trying out these instructions!
