Begin with a horseshoe type of hoop. This is the base of the eye.
At the bottom of the eye, draw a straight line with a hook line at the end. This is the bottom of the eye. Manga eyes don’t enclose so don’t attach these lines to one another! Add a cornered circle at the top left of the eye. This will be the shinny wet spot that makes the eye look like its glimmering.
Add the black oval pupil and thicken three lashes at the right top side of the eye. This is a female manga eye!
Now, add the lid at the top of the whole eye. This makes the manga eye’s real and not ‘all’ cartoony.
