My Little Pony Custom Guide - The Eyes by Amandkyo-Su My Little Pony Custom Guide - The Eyes by Amandkyo-Su

Do not post this anywhere without my permission


Some Notes
- You don't have to paint the eyes this way. Find out what you are most comfortable with.
- If you dilute the paint with some water, you'll end up with smoother results. However, if you add too much water and make the paint too thin, it will spread around like crazy and you'll lose control of it. I'll have more information about diluting paints in a future tutorial.
- In order to make the upper arch, you can use a paint brush or marker pen. If you choose to use a marker pen, find one that doesn't fade or disintegrate. I found that "Pigma Micron" and "Faber-Castell" brand marker pens work well but are expensive. I currently paint on the arch with a paint brush. Painting on the arch requires some practice so don't get frustrated if it doesn't work out in the beginning.
- I will make another tutorial on how to paint the lashes soon.


I used Rainbow Dad in this tutorial ( amandkyo-su.deviantart.com/art… ). He doesn't have a mane in these photos because I remove everything when I paint the bodies.

Hey, not bad! What did you use to make the fine black lines? Paint or a marker pen?

I dread making the eyes too DX I don't blame you for putting them off
