8 Eye con­tact

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Even in the busiest of com­po­si­tions, a face will al­ways catch the viewer’s at­ten­tion. And to make the face even more pow­er­ful and strik­ing, en­sur­ing strong eye con­tact re­mains the most ef­fec­tive trick. The viewer is in­stantly con­nected with the char­ac­ter. It’s an ef­fect that I use a lot in my por­traits… per­haps a lit­tle too much! But I also love to play with more sub­tle glances, which are less di­rect and help to de­velop a sense of mys­tery, rais­ing ques­tions in the viewer’s mind.
