View Full Version : eyes of the beholders

I just wanted to play around with watercolor and practice painting an eye in AR. I thought it was fun and thought hey maybe others would like to submit some eyes to look at, while they look at you, looking at them, looking at you...
share any tips and techniques for painting eyes. favorite ways etc.

here's mine.
I used watercolors and palette knives.
circle stencils and the solar stencil from the "fun" stencils
the inking was done using the pen tool.
thoughts? Comments? suggestions?

Very nicely done, my only thought would be to lighten the iris a little on the opposite side to the highlight. Just a thought.

Limey-G: Thanks for the tip. I'll remember that on the next. I put a little highlight on this one but it may be to subtle.

jonwood: go for it man. I'm going to work on another one just for practice.
