and books do this like twilight, the anita blake books by laurell.k.hamilton and other authors such as christine feehan, kelly armstrong, charlene harris. They all try and give their werewolf characters some humanoid features and one attribute most common to this is the eyes. So today I spent time over the colour and look of the
eyes. Origanally I was going to use
a blue colour like my texture on the wolf however this looked very unreal and gave no emotion to the character, I wanted the wolf to look mencing, I wanted the wolf to look like he had just shifted and it was painful.Because lets face it having your skin reform into a wolf would be painful. So as you can see down the left
handside the different colours I used, the main colour that stood out was the red, I used a eye texture that I found on Bing images, copied and pasted that on my UV map, created a new layer on my panel and paint bucketed the layer with a solid red or green or blue then with the filters I used overlay to create this vivid colour I did use other effects.
However they did not give me the desired effected. I then took these textures and tested them in maya by using the hypershade and rendering out a frame I was able to see what they
looked like on the wolf. As you can see on
the right handside.
