11 Cap­ti­vat­ing eyes

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

The eyes are usu­ally the main part of a por­trait, and are my favourite el­e­ment. They can look sad, sparkling, mys­te­ri­ous or dan­ger­ous… and done well, can bring any char­ac­ter to life. I like to give them a lot of in­ten­sity with un­usual colours such as pur­ple or yel­low. The trick to make them stand out is to play with the light and sat­u­ra­tion. I use a pre­cise brush to cre­ate some colours vari­a­tions in the eye and fin­ish it a bright dot of light that will give vol­ume to the eye­ball.
