As I have mentioned before I have a thing for eyes. The force of personality that can be seen in the human eye is amazing to watch from the reactions of the colored iris to the shape and motion of the eyelids. The play of the mind as it searches the world for information is most apparent in the eyes.
And then there are the inhuman eyes of the fantasy or science fiction character. My favorites are lambent eyes in a darkened visage. Glowing motes of color devoid of the attributes of men leaving you unable to guess the thoughts raging behind them. They could be sinister or wise, friendly or ominous, unholy or saintly just by virtue of the writer’s or artist’s desires.
I don’t think I will ever run out of inspiration when it comes to depicting eyes. What a wonderful piece of knowledge to carry into the future.
