    Hi.

    pick up a copy of grey's anatomy and/or anatomy for the artist. take a close look at the structure of the eye including the surrounding muscles. also pay attention to how the iris is framed by the lids, this is key to conveying emotions.

    good luck

    I don't suggest just learning eyes at first, you should learn how to draw the entire head/face in it's basics.

    If you are going to though, try to not think of eyes as a flat shape on the face, think of the actual eyeball and its curved shape. Here's a diagram from Loomis' Drawing the Heads and Hands that I remember when thinking about this.



    I also suggest drawing eyes from life (use a mirror!) and then try to draw some from imagination using what you just learned.
