"The eyes are the window to the soul." So states an antiquated maxim. To scientists, however, the eyes are very interesting. For example, researchers are currently developing technology that could use patterns in the iris of the eye to identify people, much as the fingerprint is used currently. Movies and television have long depicted such technology, but it may soon become a reality. In fact, some airports are already testing this 'eye ID' technology.
To artists, the eyes hold another interest. The eyes are surrounded by many, many small muscles, and the movement of these muscles is an indicator of emotion on the human face. Our eyes, for instance, can show whether we are happy, sad, angry, frightened, excited, or bored.
The eyes, then, are an important means of expressing these emotions in the visual arts, yet many artists find the eyes to be one of the more difficult portions of the human face to capture accurately. What is more, it is almost paradoxical that the eyes are one member largely responsible for our ability to draw the eyes of another.
Almost every drawing or painting of humans or animals includes eyes, whether open or closed. As such, many styles have developed. The simplest eyes involve nothing more than a solidly shaded dot. Other simple eyes consists of a circle with a shaded dot inside it. The Japanese manga and anime art styles often lend straight lines and squared corners to the shape of the eye.
Would you like to draw a pair of eyes? Perhaps you are working on a portrait of a friend or family member. Now, the complicated task of drawing realistic human eyes is easy with the help of this simple, step-by-step drawing guide.
All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and an eraser. You may also want to use crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paints to shade your finished drawing. Notice that each step of this drawing guide includes an illustration as well as explanatory text. New lines added in each picture are highlighted in blue.
The type of bone typically rendered in cartoons - and in this drawing guide - is known as a long bone. Long bones are hard and dense. They give the body strength and structure and are used to help you move around. Long bones can be found in the arms, legs, wrist, ankle, and fingers. The thigh bone, or femur, is a long bone.
Long bones and filled with both yellow and red bone marrow. Red marrow produces blood cells and yellow marrow is used to store fats.
Why do we feed bones to dogs? Bones contain minerals and nutrients. They also satisfy a dog's desire to chew, which in turn helps clean their teeth. Additionally, the dog food that we feed our pets today was not invented until 1860. For thousands of years, family dogs were simply fed table scraps. This often included bones and undesirable portions of meat.

Since the invention of art in antiquity, when humans first mixed paints or scratched images in the dust, people have been a popular subject. Ancient hieroglyphics and cave paintings contain images of people, and as these artists became more skilled, their work became more detailed. Soon, their pictures including lifelike depictions of the human face.
The face can be an intimidating item to draw. Breaking the face down into smaller parts and learning to draw these can simplify the task. The nose, of course, is one such important item. Noses appear in almost all pictures of the human face. In some art forms, such as in caricatures or in some cartoons, the nose assumes an even larger role as an exaggerated feature. An example of this can be seen in Maz Beerhohm's 1896 caricature of Aubrey Beardsley, from the collection Caricatures of Twenty-five Gentlemen. In this picture, the man's face is almost entirely a nose!
Did you know? Your nose does more than just detect smells. It actually serves as a filter and air conditioning unit for your lungs. Tiny hairs in your nose help remove dust, smoke, and germs from the air you breath. Small blood vessels warm cold air before it enters your lungs. They also add moisture to the air, helping you to breath easily.
Would you like to draw your own nose, or someone else's? Following the instructions in this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial is a great place to start.
