So I am working on a batch of vampires. Up until now I have generally painted vampire eyes either like regular eyes, but red or kind of glowy red-gold. I felt like I wanted to try some other options. So I gessoed a piece of bristol board and painted a patch of grey on it (I paint vampire skin grey and white) and added some black blodges to represent eye sockets. From the centimeter scale, you can see that these are way bigger than mini eyes. That is because I am not a masochist where practice is concerned. Then I laid in some eye shapes in pale grey (the whites of eyes are pale grey in general, not pure white). You can see a column of them still unplayed-with, third from the left. I played around with types of preternatural eyes, using a limited palette of Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics: Titanium White, Carbon Black, Red Oxide, Yellow Ochre, Hansa Yellow Opaque, and a very limited amount of Quinacridone Magenta. Some of the eyes are based on leopard eyes and gorilla eyes. This way one can test eyes on a large scale before committing to figures.
