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

Step #4/8:

Reiko Sugiyama receives bluish-grey eyes; on the former 1:8 scale figure I used rather dull, grey-ish tones (incl. FS 36320), this time I want more blue, as a better contrast to the bright suit and the dark hair.

 

The iris' are laid out as vertical ovals with Humbrol 230, PRU Blue, which has a rather turquise hue.

 

The oval's lower end should barely tough the lower eyelid, while the upper end should be slightly "cut" by the upper eyelid.

 

I also try to make her look slightly to the left, so perspective, shape and size control is a constant must. Any mistake one can avoid here saves from later, further correction mess and mistakes.

 

Anyway, this job does not go well with shaky hands and hesitation - you need to have a vision of what the "look" should be, and then work quick, dedicated and with authority. There's literally only one shot for a clean job!
