Hi friends ^^
As promised welcome to my Sailor Venus eye tutorial.
I was bathing in work on the halloween time so
it got a bit late for the eye tutorial hope you
forgive me :___:'
For the concept of big shapes with a medium detail
level the eyes are also settled in that range to blend in
well with the overall look of the composition.
For good contrast i prepared thick lines with my Rohrer & Klingner
colored Ink (turquoise) like you can see above. I spare out the inside
of the eyelid for further coloration while inking and also the pupil.
See how i play with the thickness of the lines. It's getting thicker and
darker where the lines come together. That provides a deeper illusion
of the eye itself so give it a try on your own projects. It's fun XD
For the first layer of the coloration i descided on a bright blue of my PH.
Martins and mixed them with water to get a very soft and light ground.
i add more color at the top of the eye to create smooth gradient here.
for the next layers the color stays the same.
by taking less water on the brush the color gets stronger bit
by bit and i can easily put layer over layer to work out the
When done i catch one of my Farbercastell colored Pencils
with a darker value of the blue i used here and add even
more depth under the eyelid area, the pupil and the iris.
Last but not least i add some additional highlights to suit the
shojo and magical girl theme of the Sailor Moon Series ;)
If you have a airbrush you can easily make your own little
shoujo effect. just draw a star on a piece of paper and cut out
the inside. Then place it over the big highlight of the eye
and fix it with your hand while spraying the white color
on it. And voila the eyes are finished ^___^
