Eyes 2

Four very different sets of eyes, each with its strengths.  What I find interesting:

How the colors of the eyes lighten and darken across the surface of the eye.  The first, for example, has a lot of natural irregularity in color saturation, as you’d see in the RL Version.  The last has a dramatic transition from dark to light from the left side of the iris to the right — this gives the eye a lot of impact.

A few eyes for you to compare today.

From top to bottom:

Miriel Realistic Eyes in Muted Hazel are, unfortunately, no longer available in-world, but they remain favorites.  The coloring on these is perfect, with just the right shade of green around the edges, with the heavy amber haloing around the pupil.

I love the size of the irises and pupils in Eponym Fallen Eyes in Chicory, and the shading around the edge of the iris.  The hint of pink in the corners is nice, hinting at realism without getting too veiny.

Kunstkammer Surrealist Eyes in Olive Green really capture the detail of the human iris, with its weird structure, like transparent bits all layered over each other and jumbled a bit.  The muted coloring is very natural.

SLink‘s Eyescream Eyes in Flecked Forest are smouldering, with nice shading along the top of the whole eye, where the eyelid casts a shadow.  I also like the soft blurred edge of the pupil.

Disclaimer: I’m acquainted with some of the designers shown here.  However, I only blog things I like, regardless of affiliations or gifts.
