General Discussion / Rendering eyes in 30 mm flats
« Last post by snagy on Today at 10:00:06 AM »
Friends, here is a topic I should like to hear your opinion: how to paint the eyes of the figures?


I mean first the eyes of the humans.


Looking around there are figures with meticulously painted eyes: so white and the eyeball.
There are also figures that have only black stripe referring to the eyes.


1. If one looks on a photo showing human figures in about 30 mm measure, the eyes hardly can be seen: they are mostly shadowed.
2. It is quite difficult to paint the eyes in this scale in details to give them serious appearance. In most cases the detailed eyes in this scale affect rather cartoon-like.


So I am for the simpler representation of the eyes of the humans, to avoid the unwanted effect.


The eyes of the horses a bit different case, since they are much larger (both in reality and in scale 30 mm): so the impression of a frightened or furious horse can be easier represented.


So in case of the horses I can better accept the range from simple shine-point up to the more detailed rendering.


I would be curious about your standpoint!


Paint a lot and take care of your health!!

Yes, Christoph it is the Wagner's work.
I have it in German language, bought at the and of the 1970's years "Ars Bella Gerendi" was the title at that time.
Really an amazing work on the soldiers life of the TYW time.
