Here we have a fluff painting question o' joy.
How are Raven Guard eyes painted when they aren't wearing their helmets? I can't seem to find a good picture. Are just the irises black, or every part including the whites?
Thanks Cyric, I honestly couldn't decide where it would go, as it is both a painting and fluff question. Don't mind worm me!
Raven irises are black with very light-blue vitreous humour(white parts.)
I'd suggest that the white remains. The white of the eye is msotly just connective tissue, with no pigmentation. The iris does have pigment (which gives you blue, brown, green or freaky marine black eye colour). So, if I were painting them then they'd still have eye whites but mostly just black irises and pupils.
The vitreous humour is the fluid in the vitreous chamber, inside the eye. It has to be clear to allow light to pass thorugh- even if it were pigmented it wouldn't be visible. The white is the sclera. That could well be blue if you wanted (the Fi in SciFi stands for something afterall...).

No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
