Eye Critique?

Post by Roy » Thu Mar 23, 2017 5:04 pm

(Not sure if this is the right place since only tutorials are in here, please move if needed)



I am trying to get back into things and have had this idea that I have been really eager to work on. Basically some supernatural, highly unrealistic eyes. I would really like some opinions, critiques, suggestions...point out if something is really eff'd up and Idonotnoticebecausemysleepscheduleisawreckrightnow, etc.

You can take a peek from the screen shot here:

I am not 100%on the color...I am actually thinking of doing the sclera part greener and the iris bluer maybe fading from green...but I was thinking of making the colors a bit more different. Not sure about the highlights either...I want thinking of making more of a "dragon" pupil but I feel like I have done that before and need a new idea for that. (I really need fresh eyes on it, I have been doing and redoing it for hours now and getting nowhere)

I think that making the sclera and the irises different colors is a really good idea. The blue and the green tho might just blend in too well, making it all look like one color. I can't really see the highlights and this is zoomed in all the way to the face. Also, if you want dragon pupils, maybe go with something in this shape, instead of just a slit like people usually do? I don't know how well that would come across tho.

That is an interesting shape...I might try doing a slightly simpler version of that shape...or maybe make the pointed parts a bit more extreme (it would be hard to see them perhaps)

i do not want really noticeable highlights...was thinking of maybe having none and letting the iris take over for that sheen effect

WHAT DO YOU MEAN CRITIQUE? YOU'RE LIKE MY EYE SENPAI
You also fuel my eye addiction... (I do not have over 5k eyes, I swEAR >.>)


But in all seriousness.

I quite fancy the sclera and it's design.. it looks like it would feel very rigid and bumping.
Kinda of like broken up clay.

In terms of the iris size, I feel it's pretty good. Not overly large but not tiny either.

For eye shines, you could maybe play around with a pvc-ish type look?

Not the greatest example but like layers upon layers tht overlap and almost make you feel like you're gazing into something endless.

For pupils, here's maybe a few ideas? Yay for weird? xD

Have found some awesome tutorials for eyes and I must say that their quite amazing, interesting and a vast array of techniques. Think it will come down to me mixing things up a bit and then getting those eyes done.
