CliffNotes: Brent takes credit for an idea Little Barrera had.
Basically, the eyes have no pupil...
...so.the effect is deceptively easy.
|This is actually my favorite picture of the army, which is why I post it everywhere... tired of it yet?|
Really, that's the trick. Easy, no? What makes it work is I'm not using high-contrast colors - I'm using dark gray and light gray!
Using black and white wouldn't work, since it's an unnatural effect.
|I'd converted the Dark Reapers - not the Exarch, obviously - to appear grossly cybernetic and sadistic. Some of them are biting down on a wire which appears to cut into their faces.|
I got the idea from Little Barrera, who used yellow for the eyes of his Space Wolves... which was simply awesome! I've got to get a picture of that for you...
That's that! Questions? Comments?
