Painting Eyes Tutorial

Chris Palmer

This week I worked on the Nun from Bones II Pulp Action Set, (I’ll be posting the full article tomorrow, Thursday May 7th) and I thought I would take the opportunity to give a quick tutorial on how I paint eyes.

        We pick up in the painting process at the point where I have painted the skin, and given it a wash with something to darken the recesses and crevices.  To do the eyes, first I paint the sockets black.  It’s ok if you go outside of the actual sculpted eye.

      Next, I very carefully, paint an area of white inside the black sockets that I just painted.

     I then go back and paint the pupils by doing vertical lines with black across the center of the eyes.

      I then take my flesh color and clean up anywhere that I have gone outside of the eye area.

     And that is how I do eyes. I hope this helps some of you who have been looking for an easy method.
