How To Paint Space Marine Eyes - Red
Welcome to my quick, detailed guide on how to paint space marine eyes in red! This is probably the most common colour of eye lense, and is used by my marines. To complete this, you'll need -
-A fine hand and paintbrush
STEP ONE -
Basecoat the whole area where the lens is with Chaos black, as illustrated. Be sure not to get any paint outside this lens area.
STEP TWO -
Next, paint in the middle of the basecoated lens with mechrite red [foundation] be sure to leave a thin black line around every part of the eye
STEP THREE -
Now, get blood red, and paint the 1st half OUT FROM the forehead towards the middle of the eye lense
STEP FOUR -
Repeat step three but only go 1 third of the way out, and use Blazing orange instead of blood red.
STEP FIVE -
Get the tiniest dab of skull white on your brush, and put a miniscule dot on the temple side of each eye for a reflection effect. And you're done!
FINAL RESULT ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
