How to Draw Simplified Cartoon Eyes

How to Draw Simplified Cartoon Eyes: Cartoon eyes typically have less detail than a realistic rendition of the eye. How, then, do you know which features to include and which ones to omit? How do you draw in a way that still looks like an eye, but isn’t true to realism?

Personally, I find that the key is keeping in mind how the eye works. Your viewer will have preconceived ideas about eyes, how they should look, and where they should be on the face.

Below are three different, stylized approaches to eyes. Notice that, even though they are quite different, they all visually “read” as eyes on the character’s face. We can break plenty of rules here without necessarily losing that communicative quality.
