Eye Can Sketch...and so can you!

I was recently looking through some of my older sketchbook pictures that I drew several years ago, when I first began getting acquainted with doll making. Here is one of my favorites.

It's just a simple eye that I did in pencil, then duplicated it and colored it in with colord pencil. I love the simplicity of it, showing how a little bit of color and shading makes such a difference. You can photocopy the sketch and print it out onto paper, and try practicing. Eyes are so much fun to draw, and they bring a doll's face to life.


  1. Hi,

    I thank you for the permission to print and practice. I love to paint pictures but my human characters let me just say needs a lot of work. The eyes are so complicated to me. That is what I like about your dolls the eyes are expressive. I think well all of your dolls are unique.
    Thanks for the practice sheet.

  2. What a fun study of the eye! Your work is very expressive, I can tell you've practiced!


Thank you for leaving a comment and happy dolling!
