Step-by-step eye sculpting exercise
When sculpting human eyes, it is important to remember that their shape is spherical. Therefore, the spherical shape of not only the eyes but also the eyelids must be observed.
Despite the common belief that "the eyes are the mirror of the mind", the expressiveness of the eyes is achieved by training the facial muscles around the eyes and not by the eye itself.
Make a flat rectangle measuring 8x10 cm from ceramic or plasticine.
Add clay to form a top and left wall. Draw a horizontal center line on the remaining surface and also mark the center point on it.
Draw a circle on the center line.
Add clay on top of the circle while creating a spherical bulge.
Draw the shape of the eye opening on the spherical bulge.
