How To Draw and Paint Drawgirl
Step 20

This Drawgirl tutorial is advanced by explaining and illustrating its twentieth step.

Now that the dimensions and shadow areas of the eye have been established, we can start to get rid of the structural markings of everything involved in constructing the eye cavity. While doing so, smudge the marks you put under the eyebrow that defined the shadow position situated under the eyebrow overhang. Later on in this pastel portrait tutorial, you will be doing the same thing with the lights. That is, you will put some squiggle lines where you want the lights to be, then smudge blend them to accurately define their placement. This same kind of technique is what is happening here with the shadow over the eye.

Your coloring process continues still in... Step 21.
