Tut - Natural Horse Eyes by JanaW Tut - Natural Horse Eyes by JanaW
Oh wow. It s done! An introduction to my my way of shading naturally looking horse eyes. Done in 26 simple pictures :)

Hope you like it. I had my problems with translating everthing into english - so proberly some things will sound a bit funny.
This is the result of part one.

The ref I used is this photograph by:iconshush-stock:

Guessing Game

The first one who guesses right, which one of the 26 mini-pictures I like the most wins a simple equine headshot-drawing :)

We have a winner! Its the multicolored eyes - and the headshot goes to :iconalienation:



Edit: fixed some double-posts in the explanations. Will fix spelling an grammar as I am able to see my mistakes :)

Needed this! Thank you. I have to improve the eyes on my paintings as I have a tendency to make them look lifeless so I spend hours trying to correct it. This will help me greatly. :D

huh. my cousin has a palamino/champagne stally with all blue eyes but a bit of brown towards one half of his eye, and he still has a normal pupil i think. he isn't spotted though. he has a small almost invisble dappling on his belly but otherwise no spots. i think its strange

Thanks a lot. Could you perhaps upload a picture of your horses eye? I would love to see the color in "realy" as I didnt have a reference for grey eyes and kind of guesses how they would look^^

I went and tried but she was being very uncooperative about standing still ground tied because she is a yearling.
Here is a ref from google though
