I’ve made an ‘armless’ sketch of big glasses. I was just trying out some textures in my sketchbook app.
Do you know you can tell if someone is short or long sighted depending on whether their eyes look bigger (long sighted) or smaller (short sighted). That is dependent on the convex or concave nature of the lenses in their glasses.
If you are very short sighted your eyes will look smaller than if you are only mildly affected. It also depends on whether your spectacle lenses are made of glass or plastic.
If you ever watch a TV programme or film with an actor wearing glasses then look at the lenses. If the light catches them you can see if the glass is flat, then you know they don’t really need glasses!
How can you tell whether someone is short or long sighted? Look into their eyes.. Short sighted peoples eyes look smaller behind their glasses. Long sighted people appear to have larger eyes than normal… If you watch a film and the star of it is wearing glasses you can tell if they need them. Sometimes they wear glasses with a flat piece of glass in them, you can see a ‘flat’ reflection if the light hits them. You can tell they are only wearing glasses for effect rather than any real need.
I was just talking about drawing glasses and how eyes look behind them and decided to do a sketchy diagram. I am drawing with my finger so the pictures are a bit wobbly….
When you draw the eye behind the glasses, always look to see if the face and eye look bigger or smaller. You can tell if they are long sighted (bigger) or short sighted (smaller). It makes it more realistic if you notice this sort of thing. If the eyes are the same as normal it means the glass is flat in the lens, not curved!
There is a film staring James Stewart called flight of the phoenix. One of the characters wears glasses. But the lenses are flat and the light glints off them like window panes!
