    where do you find those little placeholder "eyes" i see in the sculpts people work on?

    i recall seeing them in a few different busts WIP, most memorable being the kroenen bust that was made a few months back. i think its more memorable due to the fact he really had no eyelids.

    Anyway, just wondering. got an idea i wanna run with, and having nil luck with google. all i find are fake acrylic eyes.

    It all depends, some sculptors use ping-png balls, some use human sized Doll eyes, some use Glass eyes,
    others use round wooden circles, depending on the project, I've even sculpted the eyes out of clay.

    these are really sticking out in my mind though, because you could tell there was a "bump" where the iris was. ping pong balls wouldnt really have those.

    i may have to buckle in and just get the acrylic eyes...

    They were resin casts of glass eyes, which is why they has the iris bump on them. I'm sure someone here could knock you a set together?

    Failing that use something round which is the same diameter as a human eye and that should work for you. If it helps you could always draw the iris in with a pen to give you a point of reference?
