Eyes are the gateway to the chibi


Recommended Posts

So my daughter wanted me to paint another one of these chibi characters.  I find they make good practice.  Honestly, the eyes are what makes these models worth it.  Like most, I struggle with eyes, but these huge character heads are perfect fodder. 


Pretty happy with the results. Open to any feedback or improvements.

Yeah...something like this is definitely the perfect place to practice eyes. You've done a lovely job on them, too. The dark rim around the iris is a great touch. If you ever want to take it a step further, I've noticed that blue eyes often have little flecks of tan/brown in them (mine do, anyway). That might be another way to give big ol' chibi eyes even more life.


I dig the highlights on the skin and blade, too. Great work.
