Nice work on the figure and the painting but I'm not sure with the eyes.

Thank you mate.
Yeah thats a tricky part in figure painting and it is not my best part... Any tipps or tricks I can use for my next one?

I'm not good with figure painting so I'm not the best person to ask.
I seem to recall someone saying that you paint what you can see in real life from twenty feet away. From that distance, eyes are barely visible therefore less emphasis on the eyes is probably better. I do 1/48 and for that scale I just use a dark wash, as from twenty feet away, peoples eyes just look like dark slits. Some sculptors use a hole to show the eyes pupil, so I use a pin to poke where the pupil should be (you have to be quite accurate though or it ends up looking a bit silly). I hope that helps (and also hope that some replies giving better advice).😉

It's easier to paint eyes if you don't have them looking straight ahead. you just need an arc instead of a circle.

Now I`ve tried a little wash 2 layers and after that a darker one. Looks not to bad and better than the first one. In my eyes😢

The eyes in the photos from number 8 on wards are excellent in my opinion.
