Fen is a maniac of "particular eyes". All the girls have uncommon eye colors, even if Svetlana is a more classic blue eyes. Even if I think people might be "distracted" by something else and look down... :twisted: :twisted:

I asked feedback to some artist friends and they suggested to have colored eyebrows (not for all characters, Anja is good for example. But for Svetlana, etc).
Remember that this is just a retouch I made MYSELF. So it's not official art. I just made it to see if it would look better this way?

It makes sense to have the eyebrows the same as the hair but depends if she is a natual redhead. Since I don't know many people that dye their eyebrows

Svetlana's face looks odd. If she were any other character I wouldnt say something, but she's supposed to be THE sexy readhead and her eyes look small, her eyebrows are even smaller(that's not how eyebrows work) and her tiny nose is looks pointed in the wrong direction. She also looks a bit ... lumpy...

Eyes could be considered small for manga style. Otherwise, they're OK. PSCD characters had similarly sized eyes. I just did a fun experiment and in photoshop put a semi-transparent layer overlay of one of the original character reference, and the eyes shapes matches, are almost identical.
So if those are small, even real human eyes are small :mrgreen: (at least that model)

For manga style, yes of course (exaggerated big eyes it's a classic trait of it).

After this game I'll go back making only games with "classic manga art style" though. At least nobody complains about it :lol: I don't want to make names but several of my past games artists made enormous anatomical mistakes, and nobody seemed to notice/care, so I think it's really an issue whenever the art tries to be sligtly more realistic (either painted or through other ways like this). So, not worth the trouble for me :)
