Bulldogs can produce some very different facial expressions depending on the individual breed and the specific facial features of the eye.
If you’ve ever seen a bull dog and wanted to draw their eyelashes, this tutorial is for you.
What you need: 1 x bulldog eyelash (1-2″) pencil eyelash, thin, medium, or thick pencil eyelashes.
1 x acrylic paint, medium or thick paint.
Step one: Start by tracing out the outline of the bulldog’s eye and using a pencil pencil eyeliner or paintbrush to fill in the outlines.
The best eyeliner for a bulleye is either a pencil eyelid or a thick, opaque paintbrush that you can paint on to create the illusion of a bull eye.
Step two: Next, draw out the bull’s eye using the eyelash pencil.
If you are working with an eyeliner that’s thin, go for a thick brush.
For example, I used a medium-to-thin brush and applied the paintbrush along the bottom of the eyes.
Step three: Apply the pencil eyeliners to the bull dog’s eye, as shown in the image above.
The pencil eyelids have an opacity that varies from lighter to darker.
For instance, I went for a lighter pencil eyelinethat applied lightly on the lower lash line and a darker pencil eyeliniethat worked well on the top of the eyelid.
Step four: Once you’ve finished with the pencil pencils, the next step is to paint the bull dogs eyes with a medium or thin acrylic paint.
It’s important to start with a very soft paintbrush, as this will allow you to apply a subtle texture to the pencil lines and make the eye look more realistic.
In my case, I’m using a medium paintbrush with a fine brush tip that you could use to brush on the pencil edges.
Step five: Using the acrylic paintbrush as the brush, apply a medium thickness paintbrush over the eye using a fine, even brush stroke.
I used medium to medium thickness to medium thin acrylic paints that were both opaque and medium-light, but not too thin.
It depends on your desired opacity, but you should have medium-thin acrylic paints.
Step six: Once the eye has been painted, you need to trace the outline using a paintbrush.
I did this by using a large brush tip and tracing along the lower lashes, which were almost touching.
Step seven: Using a paint brush, trace around the brow, eyelid, and eyelash line.
The eyelashes should be fairly even and evenly spaced.
If they’re not, you’ll need to use a thinner paintbrush or pencil to correct them.
Step eight: You now have a bullface that looks very much like a bull.
Step nine: Now, using a brush that’s just as fine as your pencil, trace the corners of the brow and eyelid lines using a slightly smaller brush stroke and trace the eyelashes to match.
Step 10: Now paint the eyes with the medium paint.
The medium paint will be thicker than the pencil paint, but it’s just a thin, opaque brush that you need a small paintbrush and a medium brush to use.
I went with medium-medium thickness acrylic paint that’s both opaque, and medium or medium thin paint that has a thin opacity.
Step 11: Now using a darker brush, you can start adding the bullface’s eye makeup to the eyelids using a lighter, more opaque paint.
You can use a medium thin brush to apply the paint on the lashes and the pencils.
Step 12: Once all the eye makeup is applied, you’re ready to add the bullhead’s eyes to the eyes of the dog.
