Reblog: The Eyes Have It

Eyes can matter a lot for a look, or for a role. Here's a selection of eyes from AtG articles and photo album additions over the past six months or so. Clockwise from the top: purple eyes for the "Amethyst Beguilement" shoot; blue mirror balls for "Auspicious"; my natural Poetic Gold Flake blues in my natural appearance; my Keiko avatar's green eyes (I always need to watch out for Lo Pan from "Big Trouble in Little China" when I'm using this avatar); a pair of glasses shows how important good eyes with depth and reflection can be; and some gold irises for the "Binary" pair.

Iris Ophelia, writing for New World Notes, has done an excellent piece on why eyes are so important to the well-groomed avatar’s look in Second Life.  From her story:

I’ll admit that I almost never even credit the eyes I’m wearing with my outfits because they’re usually the smallest detail. Nevertheless I pay a lot of attention to how my eyes look in world and in pictures, so today I’m sharing some tips to getting the most out of your SL eyes

She has several excellent tips for you to go over and consider.  Why not cast your (real) eyes upon them?
