Balon's eyes and pants

I did his eyes so I wouldn't be getting that zombie stare anymore. Dude has some tiny eyes. They're also set pretty deep, which does not help. I may have to do some more work on them. They look fine to my old person eyes without magnification, but have some issues in the close ups from some angles.

I also decided on a color scheme, I think. You can see I did his pants and boots. They're the same off-black; the pants are pretty well hidden anyway so there's no point in making them a different color. I took that hint from the model piece on the Dark Sword web site. I put a base coat on his shirt. It's a little hard to see because it's very similar to the primer color. Anyway, it's going to be gray. The tabard will be a greyish green, and the cloak is going to be either a dark purple-ish gray or a darker green. The only thing I haven't figured out yet is what color his hair is going to be. Usually I'd do the hair before the clothing, but in this case I don't want to choose a hair color until I see the rest of it come together.

  1. The eyes look good. The first picture looks like he's about to lecture me about how much he disapproves of my life choices.
