This’ll be a bunch of bs I’m pulling out of my ass.
The white of the eye is never actually white. It’s often thought to be the same off white as milk, so if you can color a glass of milk you can color the whites of your eyes. Your pupils are more or less black because they are literally a deep hole in the middle where no light is supposed to escape from. The shinny highlight-y stuff on top of your cornea looks like the shine off a fried egg, so think of your eyeball as a greasy egg.
If you’re not too close to the person’s face, the individual eyelashes are much less important than the overall impression of them. Consider whether or not they’re big, and just make it a single deeper line. On the other hand, eyelashes catch light in a very peculiar way, like the way tiny hairs on your skin catch light and give a living person that unique glow. But that’s an advanced technique, suffice it to say that eyelashes like every single thing in the universe apart from black holes, catch and reflect light.
The iris is also a deep black hole. So basically think of your eyeballs as mini galaxies with a super massive black hole sucking everything into it.
So remember, if you can color a glass of milk, a fried egg, and a super massive black hole, then you can draw a human eye.
I have privately, and sometimes it’s shared among a small friendly circle.
There’s cheesecake a plenty. I seem to be alright at that. But I’m not particularly good at the x rated stuff. Not to mention, I think my particular tumblr’s steered clear of most mature rated stuff and I’d rather not ruin anyone’s day that wasn’t looking for it.
I did have a couple really good ideas for adult stories though, but that’s for another time. And another blog.
Are we gonna do a charity stream for the recent disaster?
Yes, I’m planning on it. There’s something being worked out that might improve on the wonky experience of Tiny Chat but right now it’s only gonna work for a smaller team. It’s tricky working these out with varying schedules and technology problems.
About the Korra piece, unfortunately I wasn’t planning to. I’m actually already quite pleased with it and for personal satisfactions sake, color wouldn’t add much for me. It might be nice to see though, people seem quite taken with it.
If people are interested, I can share a link to a PSD with all the separate layers. People have asked if they can color my work before, and I’m pretty much totally okay with it. I’ll even do what I can to help practicing colorists along.
Are you going to have another charity drive for the recent Philippines disaster?
It’s very likely. This isn’t the first disaster this year that hit the Philippines, and I’m sorry to say I haven’t made the time to do a sketch drive for any of them. The super typhoon that hit though, that has to be the last straw. I don’t quite know what form this charity drive will take but expect one soon. But please don’t let waiting for art sketches delay sending relief funds to the red Cross or any other worthy charity. The sooner you send it, the better.
