Neon Genesis Evangelion [Doujinshi] +++ 1:6 Reiko Sugiyama in plugsuit (kit conversion) - WiP

Step #6/8:

Now it's time for a black pupil, I like to use gloss black here - not for the finish but rather for the enamel's consistency, much like for the white.

 

Again, both eyes should look at the same spot and both pupils should be of the same shape and size.

 

Naturally, one tends to paint then rather small, esp. on anime characters, and it is again a kind of trial-and-improve-but-avoid-an error process.

 

I actually kept the pupil relatively small for one of the NGE characters - it helps with a rather open expression in this case, as the figure has a slight smie on its lips.

 

The latter were painted in this step, too, just with a bit of thinned Brick Red (Humbrol 70). It is not to emphasize the lips, rather to add some contrasts to the mouth - less is IMHO more.
